Several young skateboarders were treated with unreasonable predjudice by police officer Joey Williams on Go Skateboarding Day in Hot Springs, Arkansas. As the SPAC begins taking on the issue of how city laws and statutes affect skateboarders in Seattle, this type of unfortunate event reminds us of the need and importance of safe public places for skateboarding.
Please support our fellow skaters and take a minute to send an email, letter, or make a phone call and let them know that this type of treatment cannot and will not be tolerated:
