That's your reaction to a 14 year-old getting punched out and having his bike stolen, skater? I hope nothing like that ever happens to you, or anyone you know.
I know the kid this happened to, and he's a great guy. He loved that bike. It was expensive, and he came up with most of the money for it himself. Other neighbors and I enjoyed watching him do tricks on it around here. It's a shame he'll be without it...

Yes its a pity this park is now a magnet for these lowlifes .. first suggestion I make is to remove/lock the access to the power outlets that are in several places at Burgess.. For a long time there was a grouchy older guy in a small red American sedan who used to charge his laptop (and no doubt other things) whilst he sat all day in his car .. watching passers by ..
Also if the rules of the skatepark say no bikes or helmets must be worn.. they why is this not enforced by the MPPD (yes they have the time) ?
