    not sure what the whole story is here but is the hoop actually on their own property? Up here I believe the first couple of feet between the street and your home aren't - they are considered part of the street. So putting a permanent hoop there wouldn't be considered legal and the city would have to act on a complaint. I reckon this is more a story of a pissed off neighbour than anything else.

    While it does seem like bullshit, the zoning law has been in place since 2005. He was notified by certified letter to remove it. Hell the guy himself even said it has been in place for 60 years so obviously it didn't cost him a penny to put it there. Spend the $300.00 for a portable one and move it back into your property when it's not being used.
    That bitch that flat out lied though about being able to keep it should be smacked.

    Ripping up perfectly good basketball goals. Fucking blasphemy.

    The city worker lady is spawn of Satan. Lying deceitful bitch of the state.


    All that's required is a "certified letter" from the state and they show up with police escort, destroying property and hauling peoples stuff away. Ordering people back into their homes and threatening to arrest anyone who dare not comply, with cops standing by to do the job.

    Go go America.

    This is fucking brilliant work. There's a difference between spirit of the law, and the letter of the law. The ordinance is to protect the drivers? Uh...it's at the end of a circle drive. I don't think your saving anyone's life there. They say they don't go around searching for basketball hoops to tear down, but from the number they had in the back of the truck, it certainly looked that way. The lady who told them about keeping the hoop should lose her job, no questions about it.

    They are complaining about kids going out and exercising. We have a national movement with taxpayer funds to get kids to go out and get exercise, and we have tax payer money going out and tearing down the equipment the kids use to get the exercise. That's government for you.

    The fact that they never received a response from their letter that was co-signed by their state representative is a telling indicator of how corrupt this process was. Something tells me that State Rep is going to be contacting the local sheriffs department very soon and chewing them a new asshole.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
