Russell KY Repeal the Skateboarding Ban

This petition had 647 supporters

Recently, the city of Russell Kentucky passed an ordinance to ban skateboarding and this will lead to fines and confiscation of your skateboard if you violate this ordinance. 

All this does is take away something for kids to do outside. Too many kids are stuck indoors as it is, and they decide to ban something that kids enjoy doing outside. 

This is absolutely a horrible idea and it needs to be repealed. 

This will lead to more kids being depressed, kids getting obese, and possibly kids getting into drugs since they can't find anything to do. 

While I don't live in Russell personally, I am in the area from time to time and I'd hate to see kids suffer because of a stupid ordinance that should have never passed. 

This petition is meant to get a voice out there so that the kids in Russell can enjoy skating again. 

Skating is not a crime, don't make it one.
