I’m torn on where to stand on this video. On one hand I kind of loathe skateboarders for their noise pollution and grinding up all the park benches and using every beautiful open space in the city as their own, personal skate parks. On the other hand, I don’t really like crazy women that punch kids in the face for something that was a total accident.

Neither one of the kids (granted one was a much older kid) were looking where the hell they were going. She should definitely be charged with assault. No one should be able to just punch someone in the face, but especially a kid, and get away with it.

What’s even more infuriating is that the older kid was genuinely apologetic and you could tell he felt like shit for hitting the kid. And then the beast comes over. We all know or have encountered someone like this before. Someone who just lives to be outraged and reign insults and threats down on whoever crosses them. They’re despicable people that usually lead despicable lives.

So, I guess maybe you could say I’m on the skateboarder’s side in this situation.
