These kids are also being categorized as druggies and always causing trouble and that is not the case. My son doesn't do drugs or drink and a lot of the kids that skate with him don't either. All he wants to do is be able to go skate without getting harassed by certain people of the community. I don't think it is to much to ask for our community to get this skate park going for our local skate boarders. A lot of the skate boarders do come from all different families in our community. Our kids want their skate park and they need and they deserve it.
As a parent, I would feel more comfortable with my son skating at a skate park than going out and getting harassed by the community when he really isn't doing anything wrong along with safety issues.
