A man was killed after being hit in the head with a skateboard in an act of self-defense during a fight in a Santa Ana Starbucks.
Around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, a fight broke out between two men in the 3300 block of South Bristol Street. Authorities received calls regarding an assault with a deadly weapon inside the Starbucks.
Assault with a deadly weapon?
You don't say. https://t.co/HwrlXJkJJ8

A skateboard you say? https://t.co/HQtOcZSzec

But a skateboard can’t be a deadly weapon! The prosecution in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial told us that a skateboard can’t be used as a weapon. Certainly not a deadly one.
Someone send this to the prosecutor of the Rittenhouse case. https://t.co/1rqn59CLKe

Almost like they can be used as a deadly weapon. Anyone feel like telling Binger? https://t.co/U6YS4TUDK5

I’ve been informed by a certain Kenosha prosecutor that a skateboard can’t be a deadly weapon.

We’re so confused!
I was told a skateboard is not a deadly weapon. https://t.co/quhdCKHs28

I thought skateboards were not deadly weapons? https://t.co/hydl4pI4mH

Have we been misled all this time?
We need strict 🛹 control laws due to guys like Anthony Huber.

"you lose the right to self-defense when you're the one who brought the skateboard."

We’d love to know if the Kenosha DA’s office agrees with that.
For those who wonder why someone would shoot a person threatening them with a skateboard. https://t.co/zxT0MgKHJo

Important note from a reader:
The article is from Nov, 2015….been known for a while.
Skateboards can be considered deadly weapons according to Cal. Law, too

Correct. The date on the article is November 24, 2015. And we have updated our headline and removed a “today” from our post accordingly, so as to discourage any confusion.
But the fact that the incident occurred almost six years ago actually makes the Rittenhouse trial prosecutors look even worse and more incompetent, because they dismissed the notion that a skateboard could be used as a deadly weapon after a skateboard had literally been used as a deadly weapon.
When this trial is over, the prosecution themselves should be prosecuted … for sucking so hard at their jobs.
