I understand the anger against people who do pin-head things. I also think we should look at providing a place for them to ride not rip on them because they are trying to have a little fun. Kids will be Kids.

There are not enough things for kids to do in this town. All I hear about is kids drinking, doing drugs, getting in trouble, doing pin-head things. Why don't we try to help them out and aim them in the right direction? We need more community support and interaction. Things like build them a park, a place to ride. Things to keep them busy.
