It's on city property. You want a pole, keep it in your own driveway. Those things are a blight on a neighborhood.

Smellvin - 2011-03-30

The issue according to the article I found was that they were too close to the road. It was still on his property, but the law was created to protect children from dangerously playing in the street. Of course, the hoop was on a cul-de-sac at the end of a road removing that worry and the neighbors say it should have been grandfathered in. Here's the article: http://www.delawareonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011103260 346

Regardless, the conduct of pretty much everyone in the video is worthy of this website.

Sounds like someone got picked last a lot growing up.

simon666 - 2011-03-30

I'd like to know, since that pole was there for 60 years, apparently, if it was not grandfathered in to whatever law gave DOT the authority to remove it.

hornung - 2011-03-30

Slag wasn't picked last. He was never picked at all because he's a fat retard.

Wombles - 2011-07-07

Have you seen the kind of people that use those things?

JimL2 - 2011-03-30

I love that the state police officer is wearing an FBI sweatshirt.

Ocyrus - 2011-03-30

I highly doubt that pole was there for 60 years... or is it just his inability to articulate properly that caused me to believe he was saying 60 when he was saying 16?

JimL2 - 2011-03-30

"The McCaffertys said the pole was there before they moved into the neighborhood in 2005 and it may date to the building of the home in the 1950s."

JimL2 - 2011-03-30

"Melissa McCafferty said her family did not install the pole -- it was there when they moved into the home in 2005. She said that according to people in the neighborhood, the pole was there at least as far back as 1995 and it may have been there as far back as the home's construction in 1950."

everything about this story is amazing.

Ocyrus - 2011-03-30

Amazing? Really?
It caused "great surprise and sudden wonder"?

The law has been in effect for 6 years, these people are merely ignorant.

JimL2 - 2011-03-30

Tom Blythe, 86, said he was among several people on the street who complained to the state about the basketball hoops. The children don't watch for traffic, he said, and the number of kids coming from outside the neighborhood to play on the hoops has gotten out of hand.

"You see kids from all over the place down here," Blythe said. "They're down here making all kinds of noise and disturbing the peace."

CharlesSmith - 2011-03-30

Oh well an 86 year old thinks children are disturbing the peace? IT MUST BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM THEN.

pineapplejuicer - 2011-03-30

a) i live in delaware (well, pa but right on the border and go to delaware daily) and claymont is a shithole

b) "its been here for 60 years, why all of a sudden did it become a problem?" because its fucking delaware, the least interesting of all 50 states

c) "are they gonna let me keep my pole?" oh my god i need to move

d) "march sadness, you hate kids"

e) i think ive mentioned this before but there was a t-shirt campaign locally a few years back that had a picture of the state on the front and the words "DELAWARE MOTHERFUCKER" on the back. delaware motherfucker indeed.

spikestoyiu - 2011-03-30

I know someone that owns a "Hellaware" hat.


Bhiu - 2011-03-30

I live 200 yards from Claymont...It really is a shithole.

Was the woman a State Trooper? I didn't think they let them get higher than County cops.

longwinded - 2011-03-30

This whole incident brought up a memory from my childhood. When I was about ten, myself and all the kids in the neighborhood loved to play street hockey. You can imagine that a game like that is rather loud. And you guess it, an old asshole would complain to the police any instance he had. Luckily the cops were cool about it and didn't do anything. But that old guy was a dick. He's probably dead now. He even called the cops on us when we used side walk chalk.

Jet Bin Fever - 2011-03-30

I was against the pole bangers until DelDOT lied about keeping the pole. They must really hate basketball.

themilkshark - 2011-03-30

Fuck basketball.

chumbucket - 2011-03-30

did she say "oh here comes the crazy cunt"? wow :|

hornung - 2011-03-30

My asshole neighbors tore the hoops off the backboards in the church parking lot on our street. It was because I was friends with black kids and we'd play too late at night. The hoops were fine the decade before when it was only their white kids playing there.

Fuck old people.

This is government tyrrany in America. Let us take a moment to look at the Middle East to compare and contrast government tyrrany. Perhaps we don't have it so bad.

Now I want to live in Delaware.
