It’s a shame the ranger wasn’t armed so he could defend himself against these two-legged animals.
Skateboarding is not a crime — but attacking someone is.
Philadelphia police busted two teens Monday after the brutal beating of a park ranger at Love Park was caught on video Friday.
A 19-year-old and a 17-year-old were arrested and were charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and making terroristic threats, authorities said.
Local station WTXF-TV identified the 19-year-old suspect as Curtis Tanner.
The centrally located park — with an iconic sculpture of Robert Indiana’s LOVE image — was a world-famous skateboarding destination until the activity was banned in 2002.
Authorities said the suspect attacked a park ranger, 35, after he asked them not the skateboard in the park. A witness’ cellphone video of the incident shows one teen spit on and kick the ranger, as another taunts the victim and another shoots the scuffle on camera.
The witness, Mariano Verrico, told WCAU-TV that the ranger said it was dangerous to skate in the park because there were too many children.
“The one kid who did everything leaned down and spit on him. It was really disgraceful,” Verrico told the local station.
Obama’s America, folks.
