A busload of people did nothing to stop a pack of teen girls from beating a pregnant teenager and her boyfriend despite pleas from the victims that she was carrying a baby. The behavior was caught on the bus' surveillance camera and later helped police in Seattle locate the five attackers.
"I'm shocked," said Sgt. John Urquhart of the King County Sheriff's Department. "The video is shocking to look at.
"The ferocity, the intensity, the unprovoked nature" is shocking, he said. "But what shocks me most is that these girls thought they could do this on a crowded bus with adults and do it with impunity."

And they were right. Imagine that.
Tiz da see-sun.
For another article and video about this event, see the link below:
What shocks me is that the adults did NOTHING! Not even call 911? What the f***? Okay I admit it is a gang of girls but to not call the police and report it? That is what makes me angry!
I suspect that somewhere, somehow, there are ethnic issues involved - and that will complicate the matter, political correctness notwithstanding.
Of course these thugs and brats have carte blanche wherever Concealed Carry is not the right of the people to enact a citizen arrest. It stops cold where people are permitted to defend themselves and others.
Well break it down. What would happen to a man who laid a beatdown on the girls? Could you imagine the testimony?
I don’t blame the adults for not stepping up, I blame the liberal establishment who would punish the adult for doing the right thing. Pregnant women can still carry concealed in WA and even if she capped one of the attacjkers she would come out of a hearing with no charges.
You would be correct. The attackers are ‘minorities’ and the attackees are not.
The boyfriend tried to protect her though. Props to him.
Looked like a hate crime to me.
From the article you linked to: “Without warning, one of the suspects grabbed an MP-3 player away from 17-year-old Jessica Redmon-Beckstead, who was on the bus with her boyfriend, Jason DeCoste, 19.”
If Jessica is pregnant, and Jason is the father, is he not guilty of statutory rape?
I know, a bit off topic...
Yeah, he did his best. Although by the second time that girl kicked me in the face, she would have had a beat-down coming, 16 year-old or not.
I see why ABC blocked out the faces of the attackers: all black. "Nothing to see here, folks. Move along."
Animals. Where is Epic Beard Man when we need him?
CLUE — One gun, five bullets, on the 50 yard line, before a cheering crowd.
Age of consent in Washington is 16.
Here is a better video link.
Guess which ethnicity the attackers are.
Guess which ethnicity the victims are.
My, my. Surprise, surprise. (/sarc)
