Anyone else notice how many outdoor basketball courts in the city have backboards but no hoops? The schools in my area actually take down the hoops to discourage teenagers from playing basketball at night. I think that there are a lot worse things for a teenager to do than exert energy and get exercise in a positive game. We take away the few avenues that they have to release their pent-up energy and then we complain when any shit happens.
