Looks like these kids go around looking for trouble. They have a hidden camera and have made several videos... Damn yo, when I was younger Skate boarders were cool people and not looking to start **** with anyone. Now they go around with little hidden cameras looking to piss people off on purpose.
Skating has become a bit of a race to the bottom really. Uptight douchebags get really mean to essentially kids that are not stealing, not drunk, not doing drugs, and then kids retaliate and think it's funny so the douches up the ante and become verbally abusive and violent so the kids become even more obnoxious, until you end up with videos of people deliberately trying to wind up security. In my skating days I encountered some pretty obnoxious people, like a guy who started screaming at me that he's called the police... before even asking me to leave the property!
The best time was when me and my friend, older skaters, were at this spot and the security guards from the adjacent property (nobody was on their actual property) were coming out and physically threatening and intimidating the younger kids, but once they saw me and my mate they would retreat back to their property. Once they thought we had left they would come back out and start yelling at these kids again and then see we were still there and back away again.
Those same security guards tried to stop us from entering that property (a small upscale mall) suggesting that skateboards were not allowed in there. A quick call to the proprietor of the skateboard shop inside the mall changed that situation!
