To answer the skateboarding questions above. There was an City ordinance many years ago in the 80's- no skate boarding or bike riding downtown on sidewalks. I'm not sure if it is still in effect. I had a skate boarding son and his friends, who rode downtown during this time. He and his friends were respectful and did not damage property & there was no where else for them to ride at the time - no skateboard park. I thought it unfair at the time. I do not object to either bikes or skateboarders, as long as they are careful of the pedestrians & cars, but I understand that they are intimidating to some people & they do now have a park.

Paul Piscitelli, Director of Recreation for Milford, had the following comment about the rules for skateboarding in Milford: "The Recreation Department encourages skate boarders to use the Skate Park at Washington Field. The rules and regulations regarding skate boarding in public are addressed in the City Ordinances 14-3 and 18-71 he is the link to the online version of the Ordinances http://www.ecode360.com/MI3026"

Dear Koge, please do not condemn me, I did not grab the child or yell at the boy as they claimed, There is a video showing the incident. I did not grab him. There is a tremendous bias in this case.
