I've been going around youtube look at skateboarder vs security guards videos.
And it just makes me wonder... What in the FUCK do people have against skateboarding?! It's a piece of wood... Attached to two metal trucks, some ball bearings, some wheels... And mother fuckers look at that shit like it's a god damn gun. "OH FUCK! You see that kid with the skateboard he's gonna kills someone! Someone better stop him before there's ANOTHER skater related casualty!!!!(As if a skateboarder has ever caused someone else's death besides THEIR OWN!)
Seriously. How much harm can a piece of wood to? Especially when that piece of wood is on wheels? Everyone just seems to have this idea that all skaters are vandals and want to destroy everything...
Honestly, we don't.
You see these videos on youtube and you think, "What the fuck is up that guys ass." Then when they realize they've been caught on camera doing something they're not suppose to, they try and pull this, "It's standard regulation blah blah to take and recordings of any incident that goes on on the premises."
Seriously, we all know you just know you're gonna get fucked whenever we decide to show the video to an ACTUAL cop. Don't try and play it off like you knew it the whole time.
It's been a long, LONG time since I've had any sort of run-in with some kind of authority about skateboarding. But that doesn't mean that I've forgotten how it feels when you know you've been wronged by dumb asses who think they have authority over what the fuck it is that you do.
I can always go back to my venture with Josh Hudson at the tennis courts of Country Place.
Josh and I were just skating at the tennis courts... Actually... If you want to read about that... View my first blog... Well... Nevermind... My first blog doesn't exist anymore. But it was a bunch of bull shit. We were skating at the tennis courts. Lady called the cops. Cops came. Told us we had to leave, but didn't think we were doing anything wrong. I got pissed stomped mine, and Josh Hudson's boards. Went home... Blogged... Played video games or some shit... Felt better... Blah blah.
Basically, to sum it up. I hate dumb asses who think skateboarders should all be arrested for expressing themselves. Honestly, skateboarding has helped so many kids stay away from drugs and gangs and shit. And people just think it's a way to vandalize and destroy things. Fuck them, and fuck you if you think differently.
