That doesn't look like a skatepark, just a public walkway. However, yes the mom should be charged with assault. And if there is a law against skating there, so should the skater.

I hope the kid is ok.

That is a skatepark for sure, you can see slider rails in the background at :24. Kid seemed OK to me, but possibly a bit coddled.

Umm... no.  Those are railings for a set of stairs.  Not every rail is a slider rail, and the world is not your skate park.

There's a second skateboard in the video. I think the kid was running haphazardly after his own board.

In the whole video, the only things to do tricks on/off are identical rectangle-shaped things (benches/planters).

In the whole video, the only people (of many) skating is this guy.

The whole area is open at either end (no gates/fences) which would indicate that it isn't a specialized or designated area.

Hmm, look again.

I think that was the board that the guy taking the video was riding - and abandoned once the collision occurred.

2013-08-17 08:51:20 PM  
Oh, and the kid does not look ok. He was run over by an object 3-4 times his mass risking serious internal injuries, fell back on his hands risking serious injury to his arms and wrists, then slammed his head into the concrete hard enough to cause serious head/neck injury.

I'm not saying he recieved any of those, but to claim there is no chance is just delusional.

It takes a legendary tough guy with balls of steel to run over a kid with a skateboard and the whac k his mom upside the head with it. A true bad-ass.

True. I think the skater was genuinely sorry he clobbered the kid and wanted to stay around and make sure he was ok, but momma went all momma bear (can't say I fully blame her).

Like I said up thread, she should be charged with assault. It shouldn't be too hard, just show the cops the vid.

One of the youtube commenters posted this:

For anyone unsure if this is a skatepark, it's Hayward Skatepark, a park/plaza hybrid with a playground connected. Those ledges are game on for skating. At about 33 seconds in you can see the grass walkway meant to prevent dumb accidents like this from happening.

No it's not. Nowhere in there is terrain matching what's in the vid.

That's not a skatepark, but the guy felt bad. The last thing he wanted to do was hurt a kid.
 
2013-08-17 09:43:41 PM  
Accidents happen. You can tell the guy felt bad about it and was concerned for the kid. Mom is a serious c*nt, and once she hit the guy, deserved a beat down in return. Self defense.

Pause the video at 8 seconds and look at the rail in the background. That's a skate rail.

And, at :24, you can see a guy skateboarding on the far side of the main bowl. Or, he is walking very fast while keeping his head at a ridiculously level height.

So guy is skating at a skatepark and mom is letting her tiny kid run around in it. She should be charged with both assault and child endangerment.

Is that sort of thing fixed is it portable? Most of the other people in the background are just walking around. There sure aren't many skaters around for a skatepark. If it is, mom shouldn't take his kid there to run around because things like this happen. If it isn't a skate park, the guy on the board should be ashamed.

1. Take your fatherless crotch fruit who's only 4 years old to a skate park.
2. Ignore your fruit and let him run around doing whatever he wants while you fill out your welfare application.
3. Finally decide somethings wrong 30 seconds after the kid runs out into the middle of the park and gets pwned.
4. Don't check on the kid, but assault the guy on the skateboard because in your small little mind, all you know is violence and hate.

it doesnt matter if its a skate park or not. She wasn't watching her kid, and when he got hurt (which was an accident) she assaulted the skater who meant no harm and was concerned for the kid. That will teach him. Should have kicked her in the coont and shoved her.

The skate rails are bolted to the concrete.

Judging by the information on their website, there is a crap load of other things there other than skating: pavilions, basketball court, baseball diamond, open green space, etc.

I'm pretty sure you can see the rectangular planter things on the right side in the above pictures. So, the skateboarder was on the other side of those going in a straight line (probably because it was flat, open, and no obstacles in the way)

There are a couple stairs that seem to separate the walking section and the "skating" section.

But, still...seems awful close to a skatepark to place all blame on the skater. And, it isn't like he was close to a group of people or that he ran away when it happened. He seemed genuinely concerned. Mom way overreacted.
 
2013-08-17 10:15:09 PM  
I'll bet she hits her kid.
 
2013-08-17 10:15:47 PM  
To add, I'm not saying you were placing blame all on the skater.

Personally, I'd say the skater probably could've been smarter about it since he wasn't really IN the skating area. He seemed to be on a wider open section (for filming). But, it was an accident that happened in the vicinity of a skatepark. Not like the skater was in front of a mall or something.

I'd say it was just an accident that could be avoided if kid and skater paid more attention to their surroundings. Mom is a giant biatch, though, and should be get punched in her own damn face.

I think it does matter a bit whether it is a skate park or not. Skate parks give skaters a place to go where they can be safe and where they shouldn't have to worry about running into people. If not, then he should have been more aware of what was going on. You can go back to your ITG fantasies about beating women now.
 
2013-08-17 10:18:25 PM  
The only person at fault here is the kid's mother for letting her kid run around in a place where there was a high risk of getting run over.

The best part of this thread is watching all of the idiots who claimed it wasn't a skate park eat some delicious crow.

Thank you for clearing this up, I had thought this had looked like a skate park, but since I didn't have any real info to back it up, what could I do?  

The guy seemed genuinely concerned about the kid, and I feel like the mom's attitude was completely uncalled for.  I've  got a kid, and if I was at a skate park and somebody knocked him down, I'd probably be more pissed at my kid than whoever knocked him over.  ("How many times have I told you to watch where you are going when there are big kids around?")

What really confused me about this whole thing was this unstated expectation by the mother that the guy would somehow know that it was her son's birthday, or that he somehow did this to ruin the kid's birthday.  How incredibly bizarre and self-centered.

Good sleuthing, dawg.

So, it would appear it's a skatepark inside a larger public park, and the guy was outside the skatepark part. Like I've stated, he seemed genuinely concerned about the kid, but probably shouldn't have been skating there. And mom overreacted.

What really confused me is why these adult "males" still continue with this adolescent activity.  Further, I am confused why other equally adult males feel as though they need to film it.

That child was closer to the target demographic. That adult should grow the fark up.

Cannery Park isn't a skate park.

The area in red is a skate park. The area in blue is where this guy was skating, which is NOT a skate park. They gave skaters a place to have fun, safely, but this guy decided it wasn't good enough and ran over a kid.

He deserved the punch.

I couldn't tell how old the skateboarder was(between 15-30 maybe?), and I'm in no position to judge what is a good expenditure of an adult's time as I'm commenting on a Fark video thread at 11 at night.
