Idiotic Reporter Flattens a Kid
Note to Charley Belcher: if you’re trying to get to an interview subject that it’s the middle of a half-pipe full of skateboarding children — don’t. Belcher attempted to walk directly through the half-pipe at a skateboarding camp in Tampa Bay, Fla. rather than letting the interviewee come to him. He of course managed to flatten a young skater in the process. This has to be one of the most idiotic maneuvers I’ve ever seen. Check out the video of reporter Charley Belcher taking out a skateboarder in a half-pipe, courtesy of With Leather:
Ironically, he went on to conduct an interview almost completely dedicated to the topic of safety. Yes Charley, it was a safe environment before you arrived. Thank you for giving the children a perfect example of what not to do in a half-pipe.
