Four African American teens were arrested for the assault. One of them, a girl, posted the video to her Facebook page. What an idiot! She filmed the attack with herself in it not covering her face and posted it all on line.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson held a press conference in which he revealed that two teenage boys and two teenage girls had been arrested in connection with the attack.
“It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that, ” Johnson told reporters. “I’ve been a cop for 28 years and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see. It still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.”
Warning! The video below is graphic.
