If you watch that video, you can see some little kid getting ganked of a board by some bigger brat. Being greedy knows no scenary I guess.

"But only hours before, just 20 yards away, the body of a suicide car bomber was sprawled beside a glistening pool of blood."

"But for Hadisa, a 10-year-old girl from a conservative family, skateboarding has not been accepted. She said two older brothers beat her with wires for skating with poorer children in September."




suddenly security guards, skate-stoppers, and the occasional bad weather don't seem like big hindrances to getting your skate on.
