I was arguing against Mr V's attitude that deadly assault is okay against "punks" because they don't have rights. Morally, the kids were out of line and they deserved to have their RC car smashed. If the old guys had shoved the kids around a bit, no big deal, but you don't swing a club against an unarmed guy. As far as your charges go, they don't hold water except possibly the trespassing charge. The smashing of the car started the confrontation, and while justified, it it still isn't legal. If you want that lame-ass excuse for a push to qualify as assault, that swing is going to be a lot worse.Actually they did.
Tresspassing, assuming they were not club members.
Public disorderly conduct: initiating a confrontation through asshat behavior.
Assault: the punk pushed the old man first.
So yeah, they could be guilty of various crimes.
The old guy didn't HIT the punk with the club... but he probably could have. He was just scaring him off.
