The township of Jackson’s next move was shocking. Instead of sitting down and trying to understand why Eruvs are needed they started issuing violations to over 300 residents who all have basketball hoops in the ROW. Enforcement is not the answer, rather mutual understanding and working together is.
While perhaps in the winter a hoop in the street can lead to harm to a snow plow, a basketball hoop on the ROW can not. Perhaps allow a waiver for the summer and not the winter. For a town to be so aggressive is shocking and sad. Sudden enforcement is illegal and un -american. Taking down our children’s hoops is not the way to govern and is quite pathetic.
Kids need a outlet. With the increase usage of drugs in our country is Jackson acting in a intelligent fashion and taking away our children’s safe and healthy past time.
