Re: “Was Ryder Spillman killed because of a skateboarding feud?

Adrian, I cant say that I know how you feel, because I have not been in this situation. What I can say is that I hope they do charge them as adults, I pray that there is justice brought forth for this murder. I would never believe in a million years that this happened over a "skateboard rivalry"...I know skaters...been at the parks for quite some time. We used to live at Pierson, thats where my sons used to skate...we had problems with some other skaters from different parks, but never would it have come down to murder. You're right, it would have been ended in a game of S.K.A.T.E. but the media is going to make all skateboarders look like murderers and evil doers because of this. Unfortunately, most people wont take time out to read between the lines and realize that this is not something that happened because of a disagreement between rival skateboarders. Its bad enough now that people who skate are looked at like they are just punks with attitudes, now with the medias reports this will make the skateboarding community look so much worse. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend, I truly hope that these two boys who did this dont get away with it. They will live with their decisions for the rest of their lives and I hope they see Ryders face when they close their eyes! Roll in Paradise Ryder...where you can hit every trick and always be on your board

Re: “Was Ryder Spillman killed because of a skateboarding feud?

Honestly, tagging of a park is not uncommon, but to think that this murder had anything to do with a skatepark or a skating rivalry is ridiculous. This had to do with misguided youth who have no real idea of the value of life. Its a damn shame that his body had to be found anywhere...this is a kid who should have been in bed that morning..not lying on the ground waiting to be discovered by the first passers by....

I am sorry this happened to your friend...I truly hope that justice is served on these punks that did this. I am quite sure that now people will really look worse at skaters than what they have in the past. This most definately does not fare well for Ropo, especially after you all having to fight to keep your park. All of the KC skaters are in my prayers and the prayers of my family tonight. Peace be with you and all of yours.

Re: “Was Ryder Spillman killed because of a skateboarding feud?

this angers me, not only because it is a meaningless death of a young person, but also because it is being said that is over a skating rivalry. Honestly, there are too many young people out here with access to weapons and not afraid to use them. This is not over territory or who is the better skater...this is over ignorance! My heart goes out to all of Ryders family and friends...I just cant believe how senseless this is. One of these days people will realize that sometimes kids are just bad...they dont commit crimes because someone drove them to it, they do it because they want to and to make themselves look hard. Unfortunately, this young man lost his life for nothing.
