The Nanny State in all its pervasive glory. For The Children ™ — no basketball poles/hoops on private property. I wonder how Michelle Obama feels about this. I mean, it is counter-intuitive to her Let’s Move program, no?
Also note that the police officer lied right on tape. She clearly told the man that he could keep the pole and that they would lay it down in his driveway. Mere seconds later, that request is refused and she pretends she never *just said* any such thing.
We have one of those at the end of our cul de sac. Just try and pry our kids’ basketball hoopies out of our cold dead hands.
