DylonNotNylon: This is one of those things that makes me tell I’m getting older. Like 7 years ago I’d have thought the security guard was a d*ck and that kid was awesome for being a rebel. Now I’m just thinking of how pissed I’d be if I were trying to have a day at the museum and there were fuckers grinding down the handrails.
Also, get off my lawn.
Apex-Raijin: Damn, flash photography as well
MasterOwls: No need to get angry about it
IwillNoComply: that ain’t justice.
syndicateeffect: Skateboarding is not a crime.
Not a crime?
Skateboarding (despite what some slogans might tell you) is actually a crime in many places and situations. If you skate for long enough, you’ll undoubtedly run into some headaches. Maybe it’ll be a psycho making sure his bush is safe, or a security guard taking out their frustrations on you, eager to jam up your good time. All of these situations can be stressful and potentially result in your arrest, that is, if you don’t know your rights.
With that in mind, we tried to educate ourselves and made this little (not totally comprehensive) guide to dealing with such altercations, using our skate lawyer friend, Colin Commito, as expert legal counsel. Give it a read to brush up on what you should and shouldn’t do to stay one step ahead on the streets.
