Reagan Statue at Sports Park Torched by Vandals


Vandals set fire to a life-sized bronze statue of President Ronald Reagan at a namesake sports park in California, blackening its colorful paint and damaging a memorial set up around it.

"It’s an insult to the president as well as to the community," Perry Peters, founder of the nonprofit Friends of Ronald Reagan Sports Park in Temecula, Calif., told the local newspaper, The Press-Enterprise.

Peters' organization donated the statue, which was dedicated last year, and has set up a Paypal account to collect money to restore the monument, according to the park's website.
