REGULAR skaters at LOVE Park say they have a subtle truce with the rangers, a cat-and-mouse game of grinding along concrete steps when they’re gone and leaving peacefully with wheels up when they show up.
The skaters were OK with that, too, but now they fear that some “suburban kid who always acts hard” has ruined it for all of them by punching, kicking and spitting on a ranger who tried to get him and some other skaters to leave Friday afternoon.
“He’s an idiot,” skater Ki Realer, 34, said of the unidentified suspect, who is wanted by police on assault charges. “Not only are the police looking for him, but he’ll also never be welcome here again. Now we all know what’s coming for the rest of us.”
The incident happened about 5:30 p.m. Friday, police said – a day after a big antiviolence vigil in LOVE Park – and was witnessed by a large crowd that included Michael “Philly Jesus” Grant, who was profiled in a Daily News cover story on Aug. 8.
This problem appears to be on the way to becoming an epidemic….
Some clown from Dauphin County was driving his ATV on the road while in the Weiser State Forest. The forest ranger, Nicola Zulli, tried to stop this bozo from driving his ATV on the road. His response was to accelerate and hit the ranger, breaking her leg. Then our hero leaves the scene of the accident with the ranger lying in the road with a broken leg. WTH is wrong with people?????????????????
Police found Mr. Michael Matter, III at a Jackson Twp. residence and took him into custody. This smacked ass is in the Dauphin County jail because he could not post the necessary $250,000 bail. He confessed to hitting Ranger Zulli and is charged with a laundry list of crimes.
Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Don’t pass Go!
