Skateboarding is not a crime and not always legal
Woodland Mall. I hopped onto my skateboard and turned to make sure Nathan was close by me in the mall parking lot and a mall cop raced up in his SUV. I instantly thought about high school days, considering to tell Nathan to start peddling fast! But since I am a "parent" now, I listened to the security officer say: "Skateboarding is not allowed on mall property." Sheesh! Now that public skate parks are everywhere I thought the days kids would have to flee from pseudo-cops were long gone. No big. It was funny to tell Nathan about how dad used to get chased by the mall police back in the day.
