Blind Giveth and Hawthorne Taketh Away!

Visit BlindReaper.com!On June 21st 2005, the Blind team headed out to their local skatepark in Hawthorne to have a product toss and to hang out and skate with their fans and friends. Of course, when they arrived, there were plenty of kids on deck. Over 150 kids showed up to greet and meet the team, to score some free stuff and most importantly, to skate with the Blind team.

The kids weren't the only people who showed up though. The team pulled up in the ice cream truck loaded with free merchandise for the kids but were met by the city's finest instead. Without reason, the team was told to leave the park. No product tossing, no photo ops for the kids, and above all... NO SKATEBOARDING! Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this picture? It's a FREE PUBLIC SKATEPARK... but the team wasn't allowed to stay and SKATE? The kids were deprived of the moment they had been eagerly anticipating since it's announcement.

The team was not only told to leave the park, but also told to leave the area all together. When they pulled up the street to park, they were so politely asked again to leave the area but this time with six more units of Hawthorne's finest.

Of course you could take the side of the city and preach blindly that 150 kids plus the Blind team and free merchandise could potentially spark riots but then you'd be just as oblivious as the city who thought that depriving the kids of that moment would be less likely to spark something!

COME ON HAWTHORNE!! You build a public skatepark for the kids so they'll have somewhere to skate, somewhere that keeps them off the streets, but then you run them all off and back in to the streets, rough them up and even arrest them... why!? A publicity stunt for a free park? No, I doubt it... it's free. That leaves me to believe that Hawthorne is such a safe place to live that there is no REAL crime for the cops to deal with; no REAL criminals to call out all the units for; no REAL thugs to test out all the new cop gear on!

Don't get me wrong. I'm by no means anti-authority. I'm just anti-communist. If June 21st 2005 wasn't the busiest night the Hawthorne PD has seen in a while, then maybe Hawthorne IS the safest place in the world to live! Or maybe they just have everyone so scared with the skateboard hating, child browbeating Gestapo bull their city seems to get off on that people are too scared to stand up for themselves. Of course, I've never known a skater to take too much flack from anyone, especially from hypocrites like the ones running the Hawthorne Parks and Recreation committee. Keep pushing your kids Hawthorne, they'll make you regret it sooner or later.
