BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, N.Y. (PIX11) Administrators at Brooklyn Academy High School in Bedford-Stuyvesant canceled Friday's talent show in the wake of a all-girl gang assault on one of the student contestants, PIX 11 has learned.
According to authorities, 17-year-old Shacara McLaurin was brutally attacked by at least five other students on April 1st, one of them hitting her in the face with a padlock wrapped in a sock.
"Yo, b--ch, I got a lock," one of the teen suspects allegedly shouted, as she pummeled McLaurin with the weapon.
"I wasn't able to open my jaw. I wasn't able to talk. I wasn't able to sing," the victim told the New York Daily News.
One of McLaurin's fellow classmates, Jacky Alcine, told PIX 11 he had heard McLaurin rehearse for the talent show and knew she was a favorite to win.

And all 5 will melt back into the gang-land population, never showing for their trial date unless/until they get busted for something in the future.
Fifty years ago. I am somewhat surprised to learn that, I thought the black family was for the most part in tact at that point.
Off topic,your homepage.

En route to graduating in 1998 with honors from Chaminade High School, Regan distinguished himself in that same year as: All American Lacrosse Player; All State Scholar, Football; Nassau County Sports Commission Award for Outstanding Academic Achievements, Athletic Achievements, and for Service to his Community.
Duke University recruited Regan,...

Dad is in detention locally, in a state lockup or a federal one. He doesn’t remember Mom. She was just some gal who picked him up, partied with him at the club, fed him a meal, slept with him and kicked him out on Monday.
Everyone’s a music critic these days.
Here’s one for your book.
A bunch of keys on a keyring and a necktie.
This is exaclty right.
Meet my .44 magnum, locky.
Damned Tea Partiers no doubt.
Future Obama voters....
Lots of sandstone homes in Bed Sty. I bet the Russians are buying them, gutting them and rebuilding them. NYC isn’t Detroit. There’s money to be made buying the ghetto homes. However there is the public safety factor to be considered.
Or recipients of our tax dollars through people like Obama and our congress.
I very deliberately select my pants belts for flexibility and, dense, heavy buckles. They can make a hell of a weapon, with the added advantage that your knuckles get the added protection of one or two wraps of leather....
I like those big ole cable ties. If your stealthy the zip is the last thing an enemy hears.
Sounds like the black version of “Lord of the Flies.”
You know, the weakest characters get really tough when surrounded by other idiots. I bet that attacker could not stand alone.
This is exactly what the KKK did, gang up and put down others to make themselves big in the own minds.

ROTFLOL! No...that might be the point arrived at by some readers of the piece; but the 'journalist' deliberately used 'American Idol' in the title to troll for fans of the show...I'm sure there are many other young men and women who have 'very high aspirations in life' and are brutalized daily, but they are swept under the rug because they didn't try out for 'AI'.
We are talking about 'journalists' here...
Are you really a contestant if you once auditioned? Seems like an attempt to hype this story on the theory that some victims are more equal than others.
