If they have a comments link please post it. I have some questions for them and the authorites who are so quick to judgement.

Nah, no racism there. Only whites can be racists.

Nothing to see here, folks, just move along. Just some roughhousing like we all used to do when we were kids. Now just move along, keep moving.....

Free the Norfolk Five!!!

Gang beatings do seem to quite common to black teens. I had the privilege to witness one in person.

Probably a friend of the gang members so they could have a record of their handiwork.

The Global link was curious in that the talking head warned that the video was shocking and went on to say that parts of it were too graphic too show; why, if they’re too graphic too show shouldn’t they better be considered by the viewer as being too graphic to hide?

More and more of these evildoers tape their crimes or make no attempt to conceal their actions. Either they are incredibly dumb or they have no fear of the “justice” system. After those animals beat up those girls in Long Beach CA last Halloween and got nothing but a tap on the wrist it figures they know they can assault and cause mayhem with almost no repercussions so why not go for it.

Solely based on the video, all that is shown is a group of kids beating up another kid. The attackers happen to be dark skinned, the victim, light skinned. In the video, and in the reporting, there weren't racial epithets heard or mentioned. The only strong argument for racism is the beaten boy's testimony that he was mistreated for being light skinned--not a far-fetched argument, but still only corroborated by him.

And who took the video? A dark skinned guy who was looking to gloat over a (potentially) racist attack? If so, why would he give it to the media? Or a light skinned guy who was looking to race bait?

Did the video just happen to start with the light skinned boy standing in the middle of the street and suddenly the dark skinned boys come up and attack? Or was that all the news report showed of the video and there was more? If the former, then it seems staged. If the latter, then there's the question of what went on before the clip the news report showed.

This post isn't going to be too popular here, but what's new about that?

And while at it, is this just another attempt at jumping at any opportunity to showcase (potential) racism toward those of European descent?
If you want to be that way, you could find plenty of racist attacks, comments, etc. which are not directed at those of the majority ancestry, too.

**Gang beatings do seem to quite common to black teens. I had the privilege to witness one in person.***

Nothing new. Remember the little ditty kids used to sing about 60 years ago?

“Three against one is ...” Uh ho. I’d better stop there.

According to a spokesperson, Investigators from the Gang Squad have identified 3 of the suspects, and are in the process of identifying the other individuals involved.

They say charges will be filed against all of those involved. They also say that the victim, Damien O'Rourke, knew at least one of the assailants. Police said investigators are also trying to determine what circumstances occurred leading up to the assault.

They also said that, contrary to some statements, the assault does not appear to be racially motivated according to information gathered by investigators that we are unable to release.

Yeah, sure. Everybody know that black persons can't possibly be racists. Strictly a white thing.

The press has information they CAN'T release. WOW!

Wonder what it could be since the press doesn't even blink in hesitation when releasing classified information.

Yeah, Damien probably provoked his attack by looking at one of the attackers at school funny. Therefore, it's not racial.
