This is a brave new world. People are using anything they can get their hands on to try to whack people.
Man Beaten With Skateboard
According to The Examiner
A man beaten with skateboards is in critical condition in southern California. On May 13, The Boston Globe reported that seven boys (under the age of 18) have been detained by police following this incident. Some (or all) of the boys could face “attempted murder” charges pending the investigation.
The whole thing started when a woman tried to break up a fight on Friday night. “Police Lt. Chad Nichols says the skateboarders turned on the woman, and her boyfriend intervened and was chased to a nearby coin laundry and beaten with skateboards. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition,” reported The Boston Globe.
Getting beaten with skateboards is very serious because it’s really no different from beating someone with a piece of wood — except skateboards have metal pieces and wheels that can easily hurt someone. According to CBS Los Angeles, the man was 25-years-old and his girlfriend witnessed the altercation. He was “nearly beaten to death” according to their report.
Four of the seven kids that were detained have been arrested. All four of them were already on probation for “various crimes” according to police. It is unknown if police are still questioning the other boys or if they intend to arrest any more of them.
The man beaten with skateboards is listed in “extremely critical condition.”
We can’t imagine how painful that must have been. Glad they caught the bastards.
