LOS ANGELES — A pregnant woman was killed and two others injured after a brawl broke out involving as many as 30 young women, authorities said. The fight began about 2:30 p.m. Monday in South Los Angeles. Police said one of the women jumped into her car and struck the three victims. The woman killed was eight months pregnant and another victim was in critical condition and expected to lose her leg, authorities said. None of the victims' identities were released. Unique Bishop, 21, fled but turned herself into authorities and was booked for investigation of murder, police said. She is being held on $1 million bail.

They're killing and injuring women after a brawl?

That's serious retribution.

From various sources: It was a planned street fight. Unique Bishop got into her red convertible and rammed into some of the combatants.

"A pregnant woman was killed and two others injured after a brawl broke out involving as many as 30 young women... Unique Bishop, 21, fled...the cause of the dispute is unclear, but was part of a planned confrontation between two groups of women in their early 20s. Witnesses told police they saw women shout at each other and fighting at a parking lot for a discount store. The fight then moved its way onto the street and into a gas station."

"We have seen women around gangs before, but we haven't seen anything like this event before," he said.

Not too many miles south, 9+ girls were arrested last year in Long Beach in the infamous Bixby Knolls Halloween attack. There were males involved too, but most of the perps who got arrested were girls.

"...30 Women Brawl in Los Angeles"

Really? What sort of women? These wouldn't be Tawana Brawlers by any chance, would they? If so, someone better notify Al Sharpton.

I think Chris Rock said it best “Women hate Women”
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

If I remember correctly Benjamin Franklin was quoted as having said that, “the only thing that men and women have in common is that they both prefer the company of men”. Of course by “company” he meant conversation, nothing else.

More of the people of “noble heritage” flushing it all down the sewer.

I used to think that those who failed to learn from history were doomed to repeat it, but I have come to believe that those who don’t know their history are simply doomed to BE history.

From the article: The witness said the brawl was over a man, and that word had been widespread in the neighborhood that there would be a confrontation.

Does this even happen in the 3rd world?

Or are police forces there suitably unconstrained to help keep the peace? Why do we tolerate this?

Never bring a knife to a gun car fight?

When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have convertibles?

Miss Bishop does have a distinctive method to murder.

Just curious- how do her parents pronounce Miss Bishop's name? I read it and think "yoo neek" but my imagination has been limited by education.

Damn uncivilized white women. First they are racist and now they are brawling and killing each other like animals. It must be the white culture and upbringing causing them to act like heathens.

This is a sensational story, IMO. I have the TV on and have seen nothing about it. I don't understand why Drudge does not have a screaming headline.

It is certainly tabloid and perhaps of little serious importance but it is still sensational and many people will be extremely interested.

Dozens gathered at the gas station and watched as Bishop get into her convertible vehicle and drive it into the group. One of the victims was pinned against another car, police said.

I don't think I would call this a fight/brawl. It was whacked out murder.

“...a brawl broke out involving as many as 30 young women...”

Sad commentary on our society. I can imagine what the collective upbringing of those women was like.

Unique. She'll probably be the only 'Unique' on the cell block. Too bad she couldn't have been unique in finding a cure for a disease or some other society building activity. Should we even speculate on whether she will be charged with the unborn child's death?
