A man and woman are in custody for allegedly beating a 59-year female crossing guard and stealing her stop sign and whistle in front of nearly two dozen school children and adults Monday afternoon in the Florence-Firestone area.

Sheriff's investigators said the two suspects drove up to the intersection in a black Ford Expedition at about 2 p.m. and began to turn east on Firestone Boulevard from northbound Hooper Avenue. The crossing guard raised her stop sign higher in the air and told the suspects, "You have to stop, the children come first."

Isn’t unchecked third world immigration coupled with an enabling welfare state of stolen tax dollars for eternal entitlements just grand?

People in parts of LA are so stupid that if you locked them in a cage with the gate open, they couldn’t figure out how to get out.

What was the point of doing this? To show Americans how to take a PC beating and that illegal Mexicans have different skills.

Our country has been giving itself a PC beating, just like the UK has beaten itself to near death.

The victim’s stop sign was found in the suspects' residence.

And yet they are still only "suspects". Hope the cops got the right douchebags.

The robbery occurred in the presence of about 20 elementary school children and adults.

Of course I wasn't there, but neither would I have watched.

Well, Dr. William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn would point out that the process of collectivist revolution proceeds through an intermediary of anarchy, which disrupts the status quo and prepares the angry population for a new form of government based on direct control of the means of production.

So I'd say that what you are seeing are California Mexicans caught in the throes of the anarchic stage of the collectivist revolutionary process, rather than the drug-addled sociopathic criminals they seem to be.

The Left calls it a warcrime when our guards on base fire upon a speeding vehicle blowing through checkpoints without stopping or responding to warnings to halt.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

The crossing guard lady dared to tell some people who are "above the law" that they (gasp!) had to obey the law, that they had to be inconvenienced for a couple seconds and think of someone other than themselves. I live in LA, and believe me, this story does not surprise me one bit.

When I was a kid we did the school crossings, they called us the “safety patrol”. It was a great gig in the 5th grade. We got to be late to class in the mornings and got out 10 min. early in the afternoons.

A school crossing guard, a 59 year old woman, was attacked and beaten in the middle of a busy public street by two people in their 20s... ...and not ONE of the ‘adults’ standing around watching the attack attempted to help her? Instead, they VIDEO TAPED it?

If this had happened where I live it is quite likely the ‘suspects’ would not have survived the incident.

She “disrespected” them.

Don’t laugh; that will probably be their defense.

...and they’ll probably be acquitted.

It was the people in this part of LA that obtained the license plate number, which led directly to the suspects quick arrest....

I hope these two enjoy their very long jail sentences.

Thanks for clearing that up. I could not bring myself to watch the video; but I ASSUMED it was of the attack.

...and we all know what happens when we ‘assume’...

It ought to be mandatory that this human debris be spayed and neutered before being released from jail. Had such a law been in effect 20+ years ago, there is a good chance they wouldn’t be here to cause grief now.

I did read the article. The only thing I did not do was watch the video link.

But, since you brought it up, and used it to accuse me of not reading the article, please tell me where the article states that the incident was not video-taped. Also, please explain how you know from the article that ALL of the the adults who stood around watching the attack were 'likely mothers walking their children to school'.

I did read the article.

If you did you noted not one word in the article mentioned bystanders, or anyone video taping this incident.

please tell me where the article states that the incident was not video-taped.

LOL!

I guess the article should have told the readers, "There was no video tape of this incident"...

Too funny!

From the article: "The robbery occurred in the presence of about 20 elementary school children and adults….”

I guess the article should have told the readers, "There was no video tape of this incident"...

Your intentional obtuseness aside, the article made no mention of video-tape at all. I knew this because I read the article. However, in your first post to me you said that if I had READ the article I, would have known the incident was not video-taped. I, therefore, deciding to be as intentionally obtuse as you, asked you to tell me how, based on the content of the article, you KNEW the incident had not been video-taped. You still have not done this, so I can only conclude that you must have made an assumption about it.

PS -

bystander - (n) - one present but not taking part in a situation or event.

"The robbery occurred in the presence of about 20 elementary school children and adults."

presence - (n) - the state or fact of being present, as with others or in a place.
