Confiskated! 71-Year-Old Skater Who Had His Rollerblades Taken by the Cops Gets Day in Court

He might be a danger to himself, or not, but it's sad to see one of us old guys have his wheels taken by the Police. This retired double-pusher (see photo) might be exposing a shock of white hair, but he seems under control. I don't know the facts, but the quotes are good...

The 71-year-old will now have to prove he is not a hazard to pedestrians where he skates in Southport, Merseyside.

Where Do Those TSA and Other Security Confiscated Pen Knives, Manicure Scissors, Skate Tools Go? How About Stolen Guitars?

I bet you've had a skate tool taken now and then at airport security, right? I did. I had a somewhat sentimental first edition roadskater.net (home-branded) long handle Allen wrench taken when I boarded with my skates, forgetting to put the tool in luggage. They were entirely uncaring and unhelpful of course.

Maybe USPS could have Priority Mail boxes and APCs there and we could mail them to ourselves! The government would make some money but at least in the service of us keeping our personal stuff, instead of them making money off our personal stuff. Huh?
