Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/MELISSA SUE GERRITS 01/25/2014- Pattie Platt, a 50 year resident of North Little Rock, takes a photo of the rocket slide at Burns park that was vandalized over night January 25, 2014. Platt says she plans to post photos to a Facebook page in hopes of raising money for a rebuild. "So many memories here", Platt said, "My ex husband was one of the first kids to slide down the original." The slide that melted to the ground was from a revamp 8 years ago.

Two teens have been arrested after they set the rocket slide playground at Burns Park on fire, North Little Rock police said.

Police say Curry Jerry Smith of Sherwood and Jordan Parker of North Little Rock, both 18, have been charged in the case.

The early Saturday morning fire heavily damaged two slides at the popular rocket-shaped playground, "totally" melting one and leaving two large burn holes in another, according to a police report.

The report added it appeared "the suspects [were] on top of the Rocket Slide and poured the accelerants down both slides and ignited them."

Executed these worthless jaggaloons! Jk...not really. If burning down a beloved North Little Rock landmark is what you strive for you are irredeemable. What an act of idiocy. I hope they are taunted by this for years to come. I'm glad this will be on their record. I don't want these morons in the work force screwing up whatever job they choose to pursue. Certainly employers will see this on their application and think, "Do I really want this headache from these dumb (insert favor explicative)s?". I never comment on anything. I just got nerd rage when I saw this. I hope they never live this down. At very least they should have to do 10 hrs community service a week till they are 21. Just think about what these losers will do once they can get alcohol regularly. Hell, they might reproduce someday! What a nightmare.
