Since when is it a crime to play kick ball in a public park?
Mary MacDonald January 30, 2013 at 01:52 PM
I think it's supposed to be open only during daylight hours? This was at 1:39 a.m.

Sorry, 12:39 a.m.

Kickball at 12:39 AM? My guess is adult soccer enthusiasts just practicing their craft and they didn't know what time it was. It happens.
