NY State Won’t Allow Kids to Play Kickball But Give Them Condoms
New York bureaucrats identified potentially hazards facing children this summer- kickball, freeze tag and Wiffle ball.
The New York Daily News reported:
State bureaucrats have identified a potentially deadly hazard facing our children this summer – freeze tag.
That’s right, officials have decided the age-old street game – along with Wiffle Ball, kickball and dodgeball – poses a “significant risk of injury.”
And classics like Capture the Flag, Steal the Bacon and Red Rover are also deemed dangerous in new state regulations for day camps.
“It looks like Albany bureaucrats are looking for kids to just sit in a corner in a house all day and not be outside,” said state Sen. Patty Ritchie (R-St. Lawrence County).
Instead state officials want to give out condoms to school kids. All New York high schools are required to have a Health Resource Room where free condoms, health information, and health referrals are available to students.
New York hands out over 1.5 million free condoms each month.
