Default Basketball hoops confiscated

I just saw this and was really disturbed by it. discuss. not so much that they had to remove it, but the fact the officer blatantly lied on video. Hopefully she gets punished.

I kinda hope the neighbor that reported everyone gets their house egged every friday night because the kids are bored and have nothing else to do.

Depending on what the laws are. If the pole was not in the correct place, it should have been taken down. It does not matter how long it was up.

It would be the same for a fence or other structure. If it is in the wrong place, they come down.

The officer or what ever she was should never have lied about it staying. And I hope she gets what is coming to her.

So someone installed a basketball hoop on the city right of way, along the side of a public road, where they have no legal right to do so, and they're surprised and appauled the city said you can't do that? Here's an idea, don't install things where you have no right to install them and things like this won't happen. And DelDOT notified them all by letter that this was going to happen.

The guy on the video is a ******* and frankly, I hope one of those poles falls down and clocks him in the head so he shuts up. He is acting like a high school girl being all dramatic over his own mistakes. Boo hoo. Did you actually listen to that idiot? "There goes 60 years of history!!" It's a rusted metal stick with a hoop.

And nobody lied to anybody either. I'm sure she thought he could keep it at the time she told him that. Maybe if he acted like a mature adult instead of cry baby having a tantrum, he would have gotten a better response. I have no sympathy.

x2 the guy was acting like a baby about the whole thing. but on the other hand that woman said that they would put the hoop in the drive way if he wanted, i LOLed when they tossed it in the truck and he was cryin " you said i could keep it!! you lied to meeee"

the cops tried to remove mine once, lets just say the pole was anchored in the ground by a 5x5ft 2ft tall block of concrete, i laughed hard when they failed, they said that mine was offensive due to the graphite on the backboard

Very mature. Definately the adult way to handle the situation. Vandalize and destroy private property and public property. Great plan.
