Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:01pm. School was pretty good. Anyway, at about 4pm, I'm going to visit my old school for an hour or so. I'm going to see how they're doing over there. Also, tonight, I can stay up, since I have no school tomorrow for report card pick-up day (altough, I am going with mom). I think that's pretty cool.

I welcome kids on skateboards- even if they are a bit of a nuisance. It's innocent and tame fun for kids in the community compared to the violence and tagging we hear about and see. May skaters be the worst of our worries.

Anonymous, I agree. It is innocent and fun for the most part. This is why when I see them on my block, I don't call police. I think that we all should start worrying about gangs instead of skateboarders.

I can't believe someone called the police on the skateboarders. Unreal.

Anonymous 4:23, if they're on the stairs of Our Lady of Grace, or any church for that matter, I believe they have a right to call. That's sacred property. If this was anywhere else, I'd agree.

The skateboarders were on private property so I understand why they were called. But I'm sure they were just using the stairs for trickery. I'd like to know how fast the cops got there compared to how fast the cops arrived at the 30 person gang fight. Somehow I'm thinking the cops were much faster getting to those pesky skateboard kids.
Thanks Timmy - you're doing great!

Anonymous 9:53, I'm sure the kids were only doing trickery, too. As for the gang fight, the cops got there within three or four minutes. I think it took them 10-15 minutes for the skateboard complaint. Trust me, the cops in the 25th District usually tend to respond to gang disturbances/fights much faster than a skateboarding complaint.
