I believ skateboarding isn’t a crime it’s a sport just like football, baseball, or even cheerleading.
To me skateboarding is a real sport and not just some waste of time or punk way of vandalizing stuff or causing trouble but more of a hobby or sport.
I first started skating after 8th grade and I used to think it was not a sport and it was a crime but one day i watched a video and it changed me I started skateboarding and found friends to skate with. In the video a plice officer attacks and arrests 13-15 year old children just for riding and now i do it as a sport and a hobby. Maybe you should try it
