Just when you thought the state of Massachusetts couldn’t get any more retarded, the Raynham school committee rears its idiotic head. The libtard school officials there have banned sledding on the hill behind the school; a hill universally agreed as the best in the area.
Why? It’s for the children . . .
Raynham school officials are trying to stop daredevils from sledding down a dangerous hill. The trails on the hill behind Raynham Middle School lead right to a parking lot at the bottom. “It proceeds directly into an area where there are vehicles,” said school committee member Gordon Luciano.
“We’ve had incidents where sleds are crashing into vehicles…numerous accidents, ambulance calls.”
The Raynham Police Chief says his officers are patrolling the area, but can’t be there all the time.
The police? Really?? When Randal and I were kids, we spent our time on “Suicide Hill.” It was a ridiculously steep sledding hill with a creek at the bottom. You jumped on your sled, reached speeds of Mach 2, and made your choice: bail out or risk going into the creek. Was it dangerous? Damned straight! Was it fun? Hell yeah! And guess what? We knew whose fault it was if we got hurt: our own.
Instead of putting up a “No Trespassing” sign, put up a “Sled At Your Own Risk” sign. Kids should be able to make their own mistakes.
Oh, and the chances of seeing me patrol that hill if I worked in Raynham? Zero.
