Boy, I was ready. I had my cameras, my broom, my shred sled. And just when I was about to get an photo with Bradford, and damn cop came to kick us out. What buttfaced losery prick would call the cops on a few skaters enjoying a ditch on the side of the freeway, completely away from everything? The cop said we were doing graffiti. Austin Stephens brought his camera too and shot these very nice portraits of Josh Harmony and crusty old me, along with all these other photos.

It's funny how cops will assume you are doing graffiti or doing drugs when you are simply riding your skateboard. The city should be thanking you for sweeping out the ditch and making good use of it.

that ditch looks like a fun thing to skate, one of those spots you skate all day everyday for a whole week

same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. perfect spot away from everyone else, and someone hears the sound of bottles being broken so the cops come, try to nail us for grafitti & marijuana. we were set free of course, but the perfect rain-proof spot is gone forever.

Your old ed.
Nah just kidding, looks like a awesome spot. Too bad that stupid cop came to kick you. I hate cops so much (I once got arrested for just rolling on my board through a station... CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?)

Do you guys ever use the line:
"Were Pro Skateboarders and were doing a photo shoot right now! and the photos are due into the publisher tomorrow so we can't leave right now."
What do you say usually when someone comes to kick you out of a spot?

Posted By: raw raw on February 1st, 2007 at 05:31PM PST

poor ED doin all the work, your still a gnarshizzle beast though Ed

You guys wanted to get caught...come on...where is your game???? Next time think like a criminal, not like a cast member of "Andy of Mayberry". It is real simple...Number #1, always drive (and park in visible site) a white, generic Ford or Chevy van. #2, exit the van looking as though you are very pissed off and not joyful about the task at hand. #3, purchase and wear state issued, bright orange vests..(the kind the judge gives you for community service and clean up...you can get them at an army surplus store and they are cheap).#4, make sure you bring more than 1 lousy broom...always have a minimum of 4 big brooms and lots of "hefty" outdoor trashbags. Bring previously filled trashbags for effect and place them in clear sight for all of the community to see and praise. #5. Always have a "Taskmaster" with a fake walkie talkie strapped to her (yes her)side...and make sure that this gal is big (at least 70 kilograms and short) and not too joyful...like an intake officer at juvenille hall or a female cop from the inland empire. #6.Bring a leaf blower that you never use and let the "Taskmaster" stand by it...once again, it's all about that first visual impression. #7. Give the appearance of scheduled breaks as you clean and ...stand around with cigarettes in your mouth while you wait for the "Taskmaster" to light them. #8. Help Ed sweep and prepare the territory for skateboarding. Chances are that if you try something different and for about 10 minutes of time, the old crabbies will get bored and go back to bothering their immediate family members and the cops will leave you alone...(for awhile). It is time to think outside of the box and strike with a plan....most likely the courts will begin to receive complaints about the "skating" convicts and loss of tax dollars.
