Cleveland City Councilman Terrell Pruitt has had enough of this healthy, outdoor exercise crap. He wants those portable basketball hoops, and gosh darn it, he wants them now. Nevermind the wholesome and long-standing tradition of congregation around hoops during the summer. He'll go door to door until he gets those menaces off the streets if he has to. Those kids will just have to find something else to do with three months of free time. I'm sure they'll find something. Maybe knitting or origami.

Pruitt is pushing to allow cops to confiscate these obviously dangerous apparatuses of entertainment if they are being used in the streets.

Read his rationale after the jump.
