In Officer Candidate School, one of the most important lessons we learned was never to issue an order that you knew could not or would not be obeyed. To do so would only undermine our authority. It seems the NYPD could do with hearing that lesson again . . .
There's apparently an annual 'longboard' skateboard race in New York City known as the 'Broadway Bomb'. This year the city banned it, and the New York State Supreme Court ruled that it was within its rights to do so.
Naturally the skateboarders, being sober, upright citizens, honored the ban and canceled the event, right?
This is what happened in October when the NYPD tried to stop them. Love the theme music!
