Disturbing :unsure:

ETA: Apparently some person (probably an accomplice) first videoed it and uploaded it on youtube, then netizens helped tracing the IP of the original uploader's and forwarded everything to the police (that person deleted the video but was too late). It happened in Chicago, and some attackers are, allegedly, ethnically Asian

Yes, i think it's irrelevant that he is Asian, some people are already trying to make an ethnic incident out of it. Someone posted attackers names on youtube and one of them is Asian :shrug:
Fights like this happen every day, only a small number ends up online.

I hope they are kicked out of school and prosecuted.

Thats disgusting, although I agree that this doesn't seem to be a racially motivated attack as 5 of his attackers seem to be Asian, but you never know till you get the details as self-hating (especially among younger people) is common.

PS: Really dumb question, but why was he being called the N-word? I have never really noticed it being used outside its racial context, at least not in the UK.

I agree with you.

But the flip side of the coin is, if the victim and perpetrator were different races/ethnicities, it would be a big deal.
So mentioning that that both are the same race/ethnicity cool down potential tension.

It is not right, but that is the world we live in.

The most disturbing thing is, many people witness what's happening and do fuck all. They just stand around like a bunch of muppets, or just open the blind/pull the curtain back and watch....

Years ago, if someone was running around screaming blue murder, the whole street would be out to see what's happening. Now, most people just don't give a shit....

In this context, with that many people attacking I think if you are there seeing it you're instinct is to protect yourself. It would be very difficult to break up the scuffle unless you have a mob of people.

This was behind an elementary school, so if people had kids with them I think they are trying to protect their children and get far away. Regardless you'd have to have a lot of people together to even attempt to break it up yourself.

Random acts of violence are the scariest to me.

It's one thing to beat up a helpless person but to post it on the internet is despicable and disgusting. If anything, it also shows their absolute stupidity as someone on YouTube has already identified all of the culprits by full name so it should be easy now for authorities to go after these guys.

I don't know why I watched this :sad: I know it's politically correct to say that ethnicity did not matter here, but since I grew up in Russia and did face racism all my childhood, I can't help noticing that the two main attackers were Caucasian. And the one with camera probably too since he was the buddy of the one who showed his face boldly to the camera.

So that you understand better but not judge-- it does feel to me as these particular monster-boys are racists, they do believe their race gives them priority (apparently because nothing else does).

I hope they all will get convicted because it looked like attempted murder to me. Each of them tried to hit the boy into the head, so the aim was to cause substantial harm to his health or to cause his death.

LeRoy. is right even with his "limited experience." :help: I wish I can "this" your quote a million times.

If it gives me any credibility, I'm Asian and I live in a city where Asians are not the minority. You'd be surprised how many "Asian gangs" exist and how they lack a "unique" identity if you will.

Anyways, back to the video---I really can't bear to watch, but I'd most likely tear up really bad. Poor kid & sick fuckers.

There is diversity within the Asian population people.

This kid could have been targeted for being a recent immigrant, for being of a particular ethnicity, or for a plethora of non-ethnic reasons like for being perceived as a nerd, gay, a loner, etc etc.

I hope the perpetrators get punished for this. It makes me so sad to think that this kind of violence is probably common throughout the world. The Philadelphia Inquirer did a good series on school violence within the Philadelphia School District, if anyone is interested. You get a sense of how school authorities are both complicit and overwhelmed by the level of violence.

Staff report 12:45 p.m. CST, January 18, 2012

Seven teenagers, including a 15-year-old girl, have been charged with the beating and robbery of a 17-year-old high school senior that was captured on video and posted on the Internet.

Only one of the teens, Raymond Palomino, 17, of the 3500 block of South Hoyne Avenue, was charged as an adult, with one count of robbery and one count of aggravated battery for the attack that has gone viral on YouTube (http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/arts-culture/computer-networking-internet/social-media/youtube-ORCRP00000211004.topic).

Judge Israel Desierto set bail for Palomino at $100,000 over the strenuous arguments of the youth’s attorney.

The remaining teens, two 16-year-old boys, three 15-year-old boys and the girl were all cited in juvenile delinquency petitions on the same charges, police said. Their identities were not made public because they are juveniles. Police said one of the teens lives in Arlington Heights, the rest in Chicago.

Prosecutors said Palomino and the other boys convinced the girl to lure the victim into an alley, where the others were waiting to beat him.

The girl took the video that created an Internet sensation. Other teens posting comments on the video identified the attackers by name. Palomino, whose face was clearly visible in the video, was one of those identified.

The video shows the 17-year-old victim coiled on the ground in the alley, pleading in vain for the youths to stop punching and kicking him.

In the attack, which lasted for several minutes Sunday afternoon, the boy covers his face as the other youths surround him and push him into the snow while kicking and punching his head, his legs, his back.

The attackers yell that the boy had "(expletive) up."

"Hold on," the teen says as he pulls himself to his feet and tries to talk them into stopping.

But one of the attackers, wearing gray sweats, asks: "Do you (expletive) understand?" He then punches the boy in the face and knocks him to the ground, then kicks him in the face, sending the boy sprawling on the snow-covered ground.

One of the youths took shoes out of the victim's backpack, dangling one of them in front of his face in a taunt. They also took his wallet and $180 in cash, police said.

The boy was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, where he was treated for a laceration to his lip, bruises and abrasions, police said.

The boy is a senior at Curie High School on the Southwest Side, according to a Chicago Public Schools (http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/education/schools/chicago-public-schools-ORGOV000081.topic) spokesman.

Even though the boy's assailants used racial epithets, in a brief statement Tuesday, police said the attack did not appear to be racially motivated.

Palomino was expected to appear before a judge later today, while the six youths were turned over to juvenile authorities for processing, police said.

Yes...the word is used A - LOT in the USA by other ethnicities other than Blacks, but it's the black entertainment industry that glorify the word. It's heard all over the radio and supposidly "*igga" is a good word and "*igger" is a bad word, whatever I think both should be abolished.

Nope. Murder is just unlawful killing. Attempted murder is a failed attempt at unlawful killing. To attempt something necessarily implies that there is an intention to do that something. To attempt to murder someone implies that there is an intent to murder. In order to show that something is attempted murder, one must show that there was intent to murder.

Have either of you ever studied basic criminal law? If so, you would know that Novichok's comments can be substantiated. He's right...this isn't a case of attempted murder and trying to charge them as such would be excessive. It just looks like they wanted to beat the shit of him. Appallingly cowardly and disgusting?

Why do you think there can't be a point that they were trying to kill him? do you need a gun? Knife? Chainsaw? Bomb? They were beating the crap out of him directly aiming at his head for several minutes, even when he was bleeding and 100% helpless and defenseless on the ground, and they would not have stopped had he not ran away, they even went after him and wanted to continue.

Uh, they were provoked (going by that Holly Feng video, any evidence can be used in court), they're young, they belong in a "gang," ergo they were incredibly misguided and lacked sound judgment.

You just described plantman, except for the young part. His gang is the teabagger party.

In this context, with that many people attacking I think if you are there seeing it you're instinct is to protect yourself. It would be very difficult to break up the scuffle unless you have a mob of people.

This was behind an elementary school, so if people had kids with them I think they are trying to protect their children and get far away. Regardless you'd have to have a lot of people together to even attempt to break it up yourself.

Random acts of violence are the scariest to me.

Yeah I understand where you're coming from. At first I thought it was a gang-annination thing that somebody put online. Then...I was waiting for Kick-Ass or Hit-Girl to jump out from somewhere....

Just today...nobody wants to know, until it's them.

Years ago, where I lived. One of the local gangs used to tie members to a lamp post, then preceded to kick the livin' shit out of them...until a resident would come out and try and stop them. Most of the times, it was stopped pretty quickly, but now....you'd be lucky if anyone did squat...
