and if you really care if someone says crap about skateboarders and you are a skateboarder, then you probally aren`t a real skateboarder.
Guard, you rock.
Oh and that said, the video is annoying (mainly because of that idiotic editing).
Apparently the skater if you ask some of the people here. All I have to say to that is piss off you blithering idiots. I don`t even skate and I think the guy deserved a punch in the mouth for throwing someone down concrete stairs. There are precious few things I can think of that warrent that kind of reaction, and skateboarding is not one of them, even if it was tresspassing.
Regardless though, skateboarding has its roots in the streets, and it will remain in the streets.
We don`t know what happened prior to this. We`ve just seen a small clip and it`s unfair to make judgements about the whole. The security guard should have warned the kid, a few times, but if that happened and the kid did this, the guard was well within his rights.
what do you really care what we do or have to say anyway?
you all may have something to say about this.i did too, but my opinion may be different because i skateboard.
but im not gonna stop going places to skate just because im not supposed to. if i get kicked out fine than i will leave. if the person who kicks me out wants to be a dick, than i will be a dick to him.
go ahead and say poo to me about what i said cuz i really dont care.
Yeah, following the spirit of the law is lame, but that doesn`t make it wrong.
Yea but 3 rights make a left
A few of them, who are morons, (like the one in the video), stick the label to themselves AND all of the other people who happen to enjoy skateboarding. Therefore, one moron = all morons. It`s human nature to assume these things.
If I were that security guard, I would`ve done it. If you owned that building, would you want people skating there? They could injure themselves, other people, or just break things. That means you`d have to pay for it.
There don`t need to be any. Trespassing is when you`re on private property without permission or intent to do business. Skating down steps is vandalism. An office building is not a skate park.
> Security guards protect people and property.
Yes, he was protecting the property by preventing the skater from causing damage to the steps.
> uncontrolled fall down a flight of stairs can very easily be fatal
Hurting yourself on private property puts the property owner at risk. If the skater fell on their own, the property owner could have been liable regardless of the skater`s intent. The guard was within his duty to prevent the attempted vandalism. The kid should not have been there in the first place.
This dude was not endangering the public. He was not harming property. The man on the stairs with a camera suggests that this was a somewhat professional set up.
The assailant, and yes it is assault, does not appear to be a security guard in my opinion. Security guards protect people and property. They don`t mindlessly assault someone who is not harming people or property.
Clearly the skater was enraged, as anyone would be if someone came out of nowhere and tried to kill you (yes an uncontrolled fall down a flight of stairs can very easily be fatal) and took out his rage on the property, at which point there appears to be no intervention from the `security guard`. In conclusion:
Skater: Pre-attack is not doing anything wrong.Guard: Prejudice
"o yea and if theres no sign that says no trespassing then he wouldent be charged for it." - Of course, since you are a divine, you know everything! Including whether or not there were signs there!
"you all are skater-hating queers" - And you, my good friend, are the very reason why these stereotypes even exist.
I am truly sorry for the long posts. But this guy just had it coming to him. And notice how I didn`t even have to insult his spelling to rip his "arguement" apart!
So? I enjoy target shooting, that`s a hobby, but I only do it in areas designated for it, even if they suck. Why? Because I could hurt someone, and I actually give a damn.
I don`t care if your skate park sucks, deal with it. Skate in designated areas and on your own property. Target shooters do it, you can grow up and do it too.
the skater comitted trespassing, vandalism and solicitation.. he was in the wrong. the security guard stopped the skater from committing further vandalism to the rails and steps.. he was doing his job.
the people that are defending the skaters are, not surprisingly, skaters.. but the funny part is that the 2 skaters above me that are saying that skaters being a s sholes is just a stereotype, are being a s s holes.. what a coincidence
"so thats my ten cents, i hope you learned something"
Gee, what a way to get your message across. If anything, you`ve just reinforced any preexisting stereotype that skateboarders share no more than a few brain cells between themselves. Good job.
people were saying crap about skateboarders.i defended skateboarders.your a dick.so go drat your gay lover
Is the kid breaking a law? yes. Is the guard breaking a law? No (he IS doing exactly what he is supposed to do). Did the kid have a choice? yes. Is the kid, a kid at all? No.
And btw, skaterzero, you moron, you contradict yourself in your first sentance. All you do is rant on using vauge abiguities, and because of that first contradiction I doubted the rest of it, your posts are utterly worthless.
and he wasn`t vandlizing it.
you all are skater-hating queers
Skaters already have serious damage to their brain.
But, the skater did not have to worsen it, by eing a little immature twat, by smashing the windows. I mean, come on, what are we, five?
Here`s a bit of grown-up reality: Even without the guard present, if the skater hurt himself he can sue the property owners. The guard was attempting to stop the skater from committing property damage to the steps. He was within his duties.
The skater then vandalized the property with his board.
Sketer should be charged with two counts.
He deserves some more praise.
good job trying to hurt a kid when you couldve asked him to stop.
Wow. You`re clearly a legal system expert.
First, you don`t have to touch someone to assult them. You don`t even have to hurt them. Spitting on a cop is assault. If I shot you in the shoulder, what would you call that? Assault with a deadly weapon, or just a friendly goodbye?
I don`t understand. How does anything in your statement overwrite the illegality of skating in front of an office building?
Do you know how hard it is to concentrate on Calc III work when some idiot is griding pavement outside of the classroom window?
Funny, how if it had been the skater guy`s friend doing the tripping as a prank, everyone would have just laughed and passed by without a care about the word assault. Why is it ok to hurt your friends, but no ok to hurt idiots you don`t know?
Doesn`t appear the idiot skater was hurt...except his pride.
And to all you people that say outside an office builiding is not the place to skate. Maybe his town doesn`t have a skaetpark. Or maybe it sucks. And those stairs were better for skating. Honestly think about things before you pass judgement on someone for skating. Not all skaters are bad people, it`s just a hobby.
Huh? Huh? You get one guess
Lol that was funneh. Very Very Funneh. Gets tripped by security guard, then vents his rage on the indestructible glass. I bet he was arested after whacking that glass.
To all you imbeciles who think its the guards fault, why do you think they HAD a security guard?
Pretty much. There are specific places to go skateboarding; outside what appears to be an office building is not one of them.
I disagree entirely. I`m not even going to explain why, it’s quite obvious.
Yeah, following the spirit of the law is lame, but that doesn`t make it wrong.
Personally, I think the security guard used his head, because considering what the skater did after the guard tripped him, (smash his skateboard against a window), there could`ve been a messy confrontation.
