Ex-Power Ranger Was Arrested For Stabbing His Room-mate To Death With A Sword
Variety- Former “Power Rangers Samurai” star Ricardo Medina was arrested Thursday morning and charged with the 2015 stabbing murder of his roommate, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced. Medina has been charged with one count of murder for the fatal stabbing of Josh Sutter at his house in Palmdale, Calif., on Jan. 31, 2015. The two allegedly got into an argument over Medina’s girlfriend, and Medina apparently stabbed Sutter multiple times with a sword after the argument turned physical. Medina was arrested for the stabbing about a year ago, but claimed that it was self-defense and was released. However, he was not charged with the crime during that arrest, unlike the one that occurred on Thursday after more investigation from the DA’s office. Medina is set to be arraigned Tuesday at the Antelope Valley Branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Prosecutors will ask that bail be set at $1 million. If convicted, Medina faces 26 years to life in prison. Medina starred on “Power Rangers Wild Force” as Cole Evans for 39 episodes in 2002. He would return to the franchise in 2011, playing Deker in 24 episodes of “Power Rangers Samurai.” His other acting credits include a 2003 episode of “E.R.” and a 2004 episode of “CSI: Miami.”
Uhhhhhh, hey guy. What are you doing picking fights with a fucking Power Ranger? What are you an idiot? There’s been a few Power Ranger series now along with a few actors/actress that play them so I’m gonna generalize the small group in saying, they’re all capable of murder so don’t pick a fight with them. Sure you guys might be thinking that show was so stupid and fake blah blah blah. This isn’t about their performance of TV. This is just about the fact that you gotta be a little bit crazy to play a power ranger in real life. Got to learn basic stage combat to look somewhat like a functioning actor so they already know how to handle and are conditioned to use a weapon right? They were probably a bit of a weirdo/loser growing up hence why they would settle for a action hero show that probably hasn’t been on air for 20 years now but they keep filming anyways. That alone is a recipe for disaster, a person who gets made fun of in his dead end job but somewhat proficient with weapons. Add a dose of an adult who’s nearly 40 years old and has a samurai sword on hand and is in a room mate situation, then someone is bound to die. Simply no reason to get into that argument if you value your life.
Sidenote- Billy the blue ranger, pretty sure he was called gay at the time and could snap at any second and murder anyone.
P.s- My buddy’s girlfriend auditioned to be a power ranger like this past fall so she probably is going to kill him/me/a combination of us both/anyone really.
