the Village where I live its illegal to ride bikes, roller blade or skateboard on any sidewalk

I saw a man get a ticket for crossing a side walk while wearing roller blades, he was crossing the sidewalk to buy a news paper from a machine

I understand exactly what happened in LaPorte

For example, Lucy says cul-de-sac communities turn out to have some of the highest rates of traffic accidents involving young children.

Yes. She overdosed on ground up fillings and "sugar bugs".

My kids took the news okay.

there are a lot of variables here....
we weren't , somehow I don't believe she was all peaches/cream to the police, remember the report we read is her version... the houses in a cul-de-sac can be such that the neighbor could not see the mother, one report say a motorized scooters , 9 and younger on scooters
" MOTORIZED ".... mom isn't vindictive
where in the hell did she acquire $7000, in legal fees
but the majority of posters who advocate children play in the
streets ..........
police have to investigate child abuse
motorized does not mean gas powered. they couold have been electric scooters that do not move much faster than a walking pace. but i will agree there are a lot of variables and we were'nt there...

This is a perfect example and reason for the citizens of La Porte to get familiar with our police department and the behind the scenes workings!!!!!(not by being arrested)

For all that want to gripe and complain about the police department, the least you can do is get your information straight and know what you're talking about.
