    I would offer these suggestions to security managers/officers confronted with skate boarding and other trespass problems.
    Were warning signs, of appropriate legal wording, posted on all entrances to the property? Were these warning signs journalized with the proper legal entity, city, county or state?
    Does management understand the legal terms conoted by "permissive easement, estoppel by acquience and laches.
    It would do well for management, legal and security to discuss these issues and take appropriate action as necessary.
    If the owner doesn't take means to protect and monitor the safety and security of his property, the law may do no more.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    Our hospital is built on a hill and has a number of ramps and long staircases on the property making it a skateboard/rollerblade mecca. Luckily, and after some zero tolerence enforcement and consistent pestering by our S/O's, the youths generally move on as soon as they see us walking toward them.

    ^ I remember seeing a picture of president Bush wiping out on one. He forgot to turn it on, and when he leaned foreward rather than the machine starting, the president fell like a tree.

    Heh... Brings to mind the memories of one of my previous jobs... I used to patrol the parks in a small suburb of the Portland area... The town had actually gotten sick and tired of all the damages caused to park benches, rails, etc. by the skateboarders, so they passed a city ordinance making it a misdemeanor to skateboard within park limits.

    There's nothin more fun than having one of the skateboarders say "Hey man, skateboarding's not a crime!", and being able to say, "Actually, in this town, in the parks it IS."

    And what's better than that? When they refused to leave/comply, and I called the local PD out to assist. PD shows up, confiscates the boards, and gives them all citations for court...

    I have nothing against skateboarders, just the ones who have problems with authority figures and like to try and "man-up" for their friends... But that's true of any group, not just skateboarders..

    You're a whopping two months older than I am.
    See, that's why I want to be the security guard who shows up on skates to tell them to move. That would be something worth recording.

    The ones doing the videos are small time celebrities who want to get more street cred by hassling the security guards. If you'll notice, most of these are credited, have basic editing applied to them, etc.

    They're hoping that through their "career" on YouTube they'll be the next Tony Hawk. Yes, I am so old that the only guy I can name anymore is Tony Hawk and Bam. If Bam even skates anymore.

    Most of the skaters we get around here (they like are Diagnostics center after hours) are pretty calm, we ask them to leave and they do....most of the time they see me coming and take off saving me the trouble!

  • so.. after all the s/o vs skaters vids that i found. ....

    i think im more likely to keep a "eye out" for them as all they seem to want to do is be rude and beligerent, i for one will never act as those s/os in the vids, but rather stay cool and collective, and inform them they cant skate here, try the park or somewhere else close by but not hear..
