And so a new sport is born: MMA + skating join together for what we call, "Agressive Skating"...oh wait, that name has already been taken. Let's call it, "Ice That Bitch." Opponents face off in an oval cage in a Battle Royale. Weapons are allowed in the cage, but you conceal them upon entry. Fighting will commence upon the DJ playing, "All You Need is Love," by Lennon-McCartney. Last one standing WINS! and is awarded the title, "Wheeled Bitch Butcher.

On the serious side, this is not something that I associate with skating, especially at a "family event." Seems like violence can happen anytime and anywhere. Sign of the times, I guess. So sadly, it's not surprising.

I cannot let this topic go. It’s such a bizare story. So counter to reasons I skate. I have not been to a rink for decades, so how do they handle security? Do they have metal detectors or do searches? Or armed security guards? In the story the woman apparently heard about the fighting and decided to smuggle a gun into the rink. it was a cop who disarmed the woman inside the rink, so prolly no searches at the front door. I guess she ignored the "no weapons" policy. BTW, that was real helpful of the woman to bring a gun to a rink brawl, that would de-escalate things for sure, no danger there. Looks like things have changed. Back when I skated at the local rinks, it was tightly controlled by Nazi rink guards who inforced a “no fun” policy. Ok, this is a slight exaggeration. I liked to skate fast and the guards were always telling me to slow down. Sometimes they would announced it over the P.A. system to publicly shame me on the floor. This was one of the reasons I became an outdoor skater.
