Dude, don’t take my skateboard

I saw this on CNN Headline News early this morning. Last summer fourteen year old skateboarder Eric Bush was manhandled and threatened by police officer Salvatore Rivieri after being caught skateboarding at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Skateboarding at the Inner Harbor is prohibited. Well Headline News showed the video this morning. Check it out.

The video shows Rivieri putting Bush in a headlock, pushing him to the ground and threatening to smack him for what the officer says is a lack of respect.

Bush repeatedly refers to Rivieri as “dude” or “man” in the video.

You can read the entire article here at the Baltimore Sun.
