(WFMZ Allentown)   Remember when you were a kid. On a hot summer night the town would hold its heritage festival. And you and your lawyer would bike downtown to see the fireworks?   (wfmz.com) divider line

Finally! A town ballsy enough to crack down on bicycles! I've been waiting years to see those smug bastards get their due!

A 16-year-old was shot in the leg near Northampton and Second streets while the event's fireworks were going off, leaving families fleeing in panic.

So ban guns?

"That's crazy talk! We're banning skateboards, roller blades, roller skates, scooters, and bicycles instead. That should solve the problem."

...officers were taunted by the teens, who screamed that police were racist, cursed at officers, and recorded them on phones while wearing masks and hoods to conceal their identities.
A 16-year-old was shot in the leg...


So... a cop shot him

So kids on skateboards taunted the cops for being racist pricks, the cops shot a kid, so the obvious answer is... Banning skateboards??

Right-wingers are absolutely unhinged.

Scalzo, at that time, said his officers were taunted by the teens, who screamed that police were racist, cursed at officers, and recorded them on phones while wearing masks and hoods to conceal their identities.

I don't remember any swift remediations when the Proud Boys raided Drag Queen Reading Time at the libraries.

Nothing will ruin a fireworks show faster than a bunch of worthless punks.

But the biggest problem is that they are all Devils fans instead of Flyers fans.  Almost as bad as South Jersey Cowboys fans...

Also, sounds like this is mostly about some police officers who got their fee-fees hurt last year.

Load up the flare guns and assemble the minibikes!  Tonight we ride!

Where's John Fetterman to head over there and give these pigs what for?

Awww poor cops got their feelings hurt by a bunch of mean kids calling them names. Maybe they shouldn't be cops if they are so thin skinned. But I have no doubt the kids probably were being annoying anyways but I don't think it should lead to a ban.

We've had a shooting.
Lets ban bicycles.
That should fix it.
