I have to say, I watched this for the first time last night and was quite disturbed by it. Once again people are standing around, no one is trying to help the guy as he gets his head smashed around with a skateboard. I cannot do that, I would have to intervene, no hesitation I promise you, half it not all of that board would have gone up his ass. On New Years I intervened in a fight in Georgetown of a guy who was hitting his girlfriend walking up a side street to their car. I happened to hear her scream as me and some friends were on a street corner a half a block away, he was convinced she was flirting with some guy in the bar, I was able to get a few feet behind him while walking and as he was about to run 20 feet up to her to I would assume strike her again, I stepped forward to the side of him just enough to get my left leg hooked around the front of his legs, placed my left hand on the back of his head used his momentum of walking forward to trip him up and force him into a rather nasty faceplant into the sidewalk with the help of my body weight on his back as he started to fall. he was out for the count to say the least. The funny part is the girlfriend never heard any of this and had already crossed the street to the other side. by the time, she came back looking for him I was back with my friends on the other street corner looking back. She helped him up, his nose was bleeding pretty good. She assumed he tripped on a crack in the sidewalk close by.


I certainly hope the little prick gets what is coming to him

I've seen that video clip, indeed it's very disturbing. Seeing things like that makes you wish that "duty to help" laws like the one in the last episode of Seinfeld really existed.
Not that it in any way justifies what happened to him, but the man was very foolish in turning his back on the kid with the skateboard.

Run him over with a Hummer!  yes  I hate people like that, don't like it when the table turns and they get some of their own medicine. Scum.

People often say there is no reason for one to be armed. Here's your reason. Pretty stupid to bring a skateboard to a gun fight.

I would have shot this punk if I had a gun. I really would have and I would have loved it.

In the knees, pissed on him, then shot him in the spine so he would be paralized forever. That would bring me a lot of joy.

Guys like that usually get theirs in the end.

Guy should have charged him, forcing him back and taking away his momentum for a much lighter blow, then grabbed the skateboard and split his nose with the free hand.

Quoting ArmitageShanks (Reply 4):

And most likely you would have been justified in doing so. Whether you were a bystander witnessing the assault or you were the victim, that guy is undeniably using potentially lethal force. I think the video would be wonderful to subpoena and show to a jury had lethal force actually been used to stop the attack had the potential defender or victim been charged with a crime. Poetic justice given that the video was taken by the assailant's aquaintances.

Disclaimer- I am not a lawyer, but I have studied a lot of case law concerning the use of lethal force in defense cases.

Well not to point out the victims mistakes in all of this, but the skater did show an intent to use the skateboard as weapon a few seconds before actually swinging. If anything he should have taken a step or two back to avoid the cheapshot.
