that1joshguy: If someone throws a brick through your window and you keep the brick as evidence of the crime that's not stolen property.

Listy even if that was the case that she wasn't intending on keeping the board she was in possession of stolen property.

Yes they were trespassing, yes she had the right to tell them to leave,

What exactly is the law regarding trespassing in the US (I'm assuming it's different by state but maybe not)? In Canada, you can only be trespassing if it's a residence, and I think it has to be between the hours of 10pm-6am (but I could be off by a few hours).

"Also, as kids, we laughed and tormented people like her, just like those kids did."


Us too.... in fact I'm ashamed of the way we used to wind up one old guy who lived down the road. Because he used to react and chase us down the street we did it more. Stuff like putting dog poo in a paper bag on his doorstep and setting fire to it so that when he stamped on it to put it out the poo would go everywhere.

Also we'd thread ping pong balls all down a really long length of fishing line and then quietly go down the street putting the balls in letterboxes (we don't mailboxes here... a letterbox is a spring-closed slit in your front door)... anyhoos we'd put them on both sides of the street so that when a car came it ripped all the line out at once and knocked on everyone's doors at the same time.

cont. because even if the intent to cause damage wasn't there the legal definition of it includes a reference to being reckless....which I think would include doing something on someone's property that they'd just asked you not to do.

I remember very similar scenarios in the law text books when i was helping my girlfriend revise for her law degree.

When I was a kid and you were kicking a ball around where you shouldn't, they always took the ball. So how's this different? Yeah, she could call the cops, but if it's not an emergency they may take 2 hours to get there so that doesn't help. Also, as kids, we laughed and tormented people like her, just like those kids did.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

Kids should be arrested and have their skateboards confiscated as evidence, along with the camera.

MinxC: The problem is it usually takes several minutes for police to arrive, sometimes half an hour. That would give these kids plenty of time to run/skate away.

That is why she took the skateboard, they'd either be stupid enough to stay and get caught by the police or run away and lose the board. Either way the lesson would be taught.

Another problem is insurance. If she let these kids skate there her insurance would be liable for any injuries and that would either raise her insurance rates or they'd cancel the policy outright.

Not to mention the damage done by boarders to the property, which these likely unemployed punks have no money to pay for.

I'm hoping they get caught for being stupid enough to post this video on the internet. That's what they deserve for being punks.

Not sure about the definition of theft in the US, but in the UK it has a very clear definition of 'to permanently deprive' someone of their property..... which in this case she could demonstrate she wasn't intending to because she told them they'd get it back later when the police arrived, so no.. here it wouldn't be theft.

It could however be another offence, but if it was on her property when she confiscated it then she may have well been within her rights to do so (again, if this was in the UK).

And if what she said was true that she'd informed them it was private property and asked them not to do what they were doing then they would certainly be guilty of tresspass (which isn't a crime here so no matter what signs say about trespassers being liable to prosecution that's wrong) but it is a civil offence and so she could sue...and if they so much as scratched her walls when they were skateboarding then they could be charged with criminal damage

She should have called the police instead of taking the board

haha "little bastards"
The guy said sorry when she fell, that made me feel like they weren't trying to do any harm.

I think confiscating the skateboard was her way of keeping them their until the cops could show up. She said she was going to keep the board and they could get it back from the sheriff when he got there. If she had just called the cops, the kids would have taken off and come back later. She did the only thing she could think of.

Personally, I like skateboard kids. Putting their energy into learning how to do something instead of getting into trouble like some other kids do. But when they are damaging property, it's a whole other story.

The kids were polite, they used words like "please" The lady was rude and did not use "please" manners wins on this one. The kids also said "sorry" at the end.

For those of you saying she was wrong for taking the board - which was not in the possession of the kid, if it were a car parked illegally on private property would you be making the same argument against booting or towing the car?

lol @ the end... Sorry! I'll bet she files a workers comp, or in her case, a workers incomp, claim.

So, the right thing to do? Video tape them and call the cops. Let the cops figure it out. Don't touch their stuff and don't touch them. The kids have a right to protect themselves and their belongings and should have called the cops when she took his skateboard.

They should have left, assuming she was the manager and asked her to. They didn't leave (assuming she asked), and she was considering them damaging her property, she removed the thing that was doing the damage. I'd say the lady was in the right more than the skateboarders, but it's hard to say. Don't know how many times she asked, if it's been a long-running arugment, or anything like that.
She could have just called the cops after asking though.

She had the right to call the police for trespassing. But to take the boys skateboard was just giving herself a power complex.

Boys were pretty stupid to post the video with their faces. They are juveniles and a judge would give them some sort of punishment if she found a way to take them to court...which she could since they posted the video.

I think she was in the wrong for taking the board. If it was private property, she could easily call authorities without taking the board. They didn't sound like trouble-makers when they offered to leave. She deserved that face-plant for being a bitch.

She obviously was not pushed you can clearly see the (boy?) man running away from her with a distinct gap between the two.

WTF? Unless there's a history of those kids being jerks to her that was out of line. The tumble was good. Too bad the camera was so far away.

She was in the right to ask them to leave until she took the skateboard, as a citizen she cannot take other peoples property as a way of punishment. That is not how law works and not her right.

I can't tell if he pushed her at the end, if so then the boys are CLEARLY in the wrong. Yes they were trespassing, yes she had the right to tell them to leave, but she didn't have the right to confiscate his skateboard.
