Police halt 'anti-social' hopscotch game
TWO teenage girls have been targeted by police - for playing hopscotch in their Midland street, reports the Birmingham Mail.
Officers swooped on Kayleigh Mangan and Georgina Smallwood, both 14, claiming they were behaving in an "anti-social" manner by playing the childhood game.
The community support officers also ticked the girls off for chalking too many hopscotch grids on the pavement in Spring Street in Halesowen.
The action by the bobbies was today defended by West Midlands Police, who said the girls were committing "low-level crime".
Of course they were! Clearly this pair should have been unlawfully, riotously and tumultuously assembled together with a dozen like minded chums for the consumption of vodka until 2am, like any other 14 year old in Britain today. Hopscotch! I ask you whatever next!
