Authorities in South Jersey are searching for a McDonald's employee caught on video violently beating a young mother in front of her toddler.
A 54-second long video, recorded by an on-looker and posted to the internet, shows a woman, wearing a red McDonald's uniform, briefly exchanging words with the victim in a grassy area in Salem City, New Jersey. Moments later, she throws the young mother to the ground, sits on top of her and unleashes a series of punches to the victim's face and chest.
Motorcyclist Parks Legally, Still Issued 15 Tickets in 3 Months "Mommy!" the victim's young son cries as the beating happens just inches from him. The boy tries kicking the attacker several times to get her to stop, but the punches continue to fly.
The attacker then gets up and kicks the woman in the lower back before threatening the boy.
"You better get your son before I kick him in the [expletive] face too," she screams.
The fast food worker then shouts at the woman about an issue she had at her job.
"It's not over...you almost made me lose my job," the attacker says before spitting on her and walking away.
As the entire attack takes place, several other people look on and do not intervene.
Salem City Police Chief John Pelura, III said his department learned of the incident, which took place on Tuesday, shortly after it happened. Officers were called to victim's home at a nearby apartment complex finding her badly bloodied.
The suspect, identified by police as 25-year-old Latia Harris, allegedly accused the woman of spreading rumors about her and her restaurant manager. The beating took place in a field next to the Salem City McDonald's along East Broadway, police said.
A manager at the Salem City McDonald's said she could not comment on the matter.
Harris, who is not yet in police custody, has been charged with Aggravated Assault and two counts of Making Terroristic Threats. Police say she has not shown up to work at the fast food restaurant since the assault and that her last known address was vacant.
As for the people who recorded the incident and did not intervene, Pelura said he's disgusted by their actions.
"There is a moral and social breakdown in the fabric of our society which is clearly evident when a woman gets pummeled in broad daylight in front of her child while a dozen people pull out their phones to record the incident instead of calling for help," he said in a statement. "There is so little regard for human life - by the actor and the bystanders."
Salem City is about 30 miles west of Vineland and 40 miles southwest of Camden.
Let me guess.
Just popped in to see how many Q’s were in the perp’s name. I’m disappointed to find none but, as a consolation, there was a ‘La’.
She’s wearing a burqa in the picture!
I have to wonder what the “terrorist threats” were, or is this a blanket phrase now?
It's probably a safe bet to say that sweet Latia's career at McDonald's is NOW over.
And your guess answers why the bystanders chose just to record the incident rather than come to the aid of the victim.
More black on ______ crime.
Correct answer: B
Only brief glimpses of the people who were watching this without intervening. Most of them also seem to be black, although there are a few white kids down below on the right. But it’s not really clear whether the spectators are majority black.
Pop Quiz: Is deadly force authorized?
Kill ‘em all and let God sort them out.
That sounds like a Muslim attitude.
That one's a double amish perp. I haven't stepped foot into a McDonalds in many years, but I can see that it's not just the "food" that is repellent.
If that employee isn't a ginormous red flag, what is?
I'll also take a guess at the person holding the camera and videoing, instead of helping out the mom and the toddler.
No one intervene because they were blacks watching a fellow black pummel a white woman. If it was the other way around (white on black), the attacker would have been badly beaten and the MSM would run headlines for weeks on how bad white people are.
Witnesses didn’t want to be the next George Zimmerman I guess.
Jerry, George, Elaine, and Cosmo?
Fight fire with fire. They are like cockroaches.
Ditto that. I patronize a family owned cafeteria with real food, like roast beef, pork chops, mashed potatoes etc.
I don’t think it’s as genetic as it is cultural.
You put someone with the same genetics in the two different cultures, and they’ll behave according to that culture.
However, it would be much easier to study a black child raised in a WASP culture than the other way around, because of the hate YT racism factor, which again, is part of the black culture.
Typical behavior from a savage.
Since it’s Jersey, folks can’t carry concealed there. Otherwise, she might have gotten a bullet in her fat arse.
Still... it pains me that no one - especially our people - jumped in to help pull the thuggette off. Where the hell are all the men?
I mean, you see a little kid screaming because his mommy is getting pounded... no one does anything to help?
Damn, lay the thuggette out, and then get out of dodge.
By the way, the attacker is apparently a convert to Islam.
So the mulsim female feral human was beating the white woman because the almost lost her job?
Has she lost her job now?
Will there be criminal charges?
Probably not on either case.
So why didn’t the person taking the video put down the camera and thump the s*** out of this ape?
How could they tell that the attacker was a woman? Looks like a man!
perhaps the person with the camera was the same thing as the individual doing the beating.
Because if they did somehow they’d be sued by the aggressor.
Speaking on a side note I went to MacDonalds very late the other night on a trip home. Ordered a Big Mac and my God it was awful bad. I had bought just 2 of them no meal deal or drinks and it cost over $8.50. Utter garbage never again as I hadn’t had a Big Mac in years.
Typical of most low information Obama voters.
What provoked the attack? Article implies the attacker was angry with the mother over something to do with her losing her job.
Why did no one in the crowd come to the aid of the mother? Racial solidarity against whitey?
On the positive side, she DOES have a job, and seems to be conscientious about keeping it. :)
Because if that person had put down the camera, we might have two pummeled bodies and no video that could be used to convict the person that did this.
At least with the video, she will do a couple of years almost for certain.
It belongs to two specially-privileged victim groups. That explains it.
It took me about 5 viewings of the video to get the gist as to why the black was pissed at the white woman.
According to the pummeler, the pummeled was spreading some sort of rumour that put her in a bad light with the manager and had almost cost her a job at McDonalds.
I wonder if she considered what being filmed while committing a violent assault in uniform would do for her professionally? I doubt that there is a scholarship to Hamburger University in her immediate future....
I bet if there is an archive of old FR posts dating back six years, the headlines are nothing like today’s! We have become desensitized to it all. Nothing is surprising in the news. . .just another incident. . .just another day. America has been taken over by a bunch of inhumane thugs!
People who are stuck at minimum wage jobs don’t usually have the capacity to think too far ahead, that is why they are stuck at minimum wage jobs.
Yep. I saw the video. Victim is white. Attacker is black. "Bystanders" are black. Bystanders were actually attacker's cheering section, and probable lookouts.
There will probably be a “it takes a village” philanthropic nut cake wanting attention to coming out of the woodwork soon to come to her aid.
I got the impression upon watching the video that the two women know each other. Also, it is sad to note that the little boy does not really respond like a child who is not used to seeing this sort of violence. I suspect that the real cause of the attack is because of a man that both of them are involved with.
It's good to know that there are others with functioning palates.
If she wants to beat up someone who threatens her job at McDonalds, she should go after Obama, because that woman is NOT worth $15 an hour.
Actually the victim is a light skinned black woman.
I would have never considered her to be black. She just appears to have a dark complection to me.
