    I can't tell you the specifics of that situation, but I will point out that those are pro skaters. They're not there to screw anything up necessarily. Skateboarding is just a sport like any other - except the playing field is the landscape. So many dynamics.. and skaters seek out places that offer a way to do something new. Point being though, guys like him are hopping around everywhere - it's not like he was just some kid who's been smashing the crap out of that parking lot consistently. He's actually 40 years old too.. with wife and kids, etc.. He's not out to be immature or anything. That guy just stepped in like they were already guilty of something.

    As for America being violent. I don't believe it's some exclusive thing. I mean, I could use this video as evidence. Here we have a vid of the craziest clergyman I've ever seen.. and it's in Australia. All the kids are pretty feisty too.

    On a sidenote, I'm sure this will disappoint Victor.

    Stupid kids won't leave. Priest is not exactly acting priestly, but the kids are stubborn and won't leave. They are much worse and much more annoying than the kid in the OP's video.

    In the first one, the cop is way out of line. He complains about disrespect, when he's the one being disrespectful. Sure, they should call you officer and not dude, but that's a pretty minor offense. They might not have even known what they were doing was illegal. Just let them know, and give them a warning. That's all he needed to do.

    The second video on the other hand, I pretty much have to side with the security officer. About the only thing I can see that he did that was out of line and wasn't a response to the skaters, were his initial threat about "breaking an arm" and then taking the kid's skateboard. The punch at least appeared to be self defense.

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NNIN6bcMAM"][/YOUTUBE]This is a good one. At least according to the description, public skateboarding isn't even illegal here, and yet the cop still goes after him. He's not screaming or acting like a nut, I'll give him credit there. But he has no basis for taking the kid's skateboard. At least, if the description is right and skateboarding actually is legal there.

    Being upset over damage to personal property is one thing, but I think the guy in the OP vid seriously needs to pop a Xanax or something...

    Yeah, he's probably the worst of the bunch. He's itching to simply dominate - it's him that escalates it.

    I've been in worse situations where I have to hand it to cops for controlling themselves, when I see ones like him. I remember one time I skateboarded on an airstrip (not really lingering on it..I was trying to make a shortcut). Lo and behold, about 5 or 6 cop cars moved in and encircled me, guns pulled and all. But they were all business. I imagine some cop like that would just pick a fight, go overboard.. he seems to take everything so personally.
