The Story So Far/4YS Assist Fan
2014-07-07 by DaisyHill | 49 Comments
The Story So Far vocalist Parker Cannon and other members of The Story so Far and Four Year Strong recently took a stand against a member of
security at the Montreal leg of Warped Tour.

The member of security was seen using excessive force towards a fan repeatedly pushing him to the ground face first.

The altercation was in fact caught on video, not once, but twice.

maybe i missed it, i saw the guard push him down once, then push him away. I get it was by his head but it looked more excessive than it probably was....

naturally very alarming

Why is this news?

to my knowledge, security "not doing their job properly" is a fairly prevalent issue with punk shows and it's good to see the performers sticking up for the kids. if this were an actual legitimate reliable music news article it would probably file under "awareness" and/or "publicity", the latter because it clearly gives Parker and co. a good sticking-up-for-the-little-guy look

also i went to this festival in Australia and the Wonder Years did kind of the same thing and it was very awesome to see from the crowd https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQYPPpJ0d_8

Half of show security guards seem to be good at helping prevent and solve problems, while the other half are causing them or making them worse.

I've only seen security cause a problem once. The bassist of the band jumped into the crowd (without his bass), and when
he tried to get back on stage one security guy thought he was just some fan trying to get on stage and grabbed him. Then
they started getting violent with each other before the other security guys told him it was the bassist.

"dude come on the guard was very clearly being malicious and putting all of his force into the pushes and trying to hurt the kid"

if he WANTED to hurt the kid he would've hurt him, that security guard was huge, he just shoved him by the head, which is still kinda fuked up.

No. It's nice to see articles like this every once and a while, if something like this was posted ALL the time instead of every now and then that would be annoying

The other reason it's newsworthy to me is the videos, if it was just text that would be boring

Pop punk is full of pussies. It's the boybands of the rock/metal/punk oriented music (along with the bad eggs of Deathcore) Panic!, You Me At Six, etc. are disgraces to mankind.

I liked the part in the second vid at the end when that guy dives back into the crowd out of nowhere, and the two
security dudes just look at each other and shrug.
