A little kid was knocked out by two much bigger bullies, all while an adult filmed the attack and did nothing to help.
Video of the attack has been circulating on the internet in the past couple of days, a 10-second clip of the brutal and seemingly unprovoked attack.
In the clip, two older boys are standing over another child who looks to be a couple of years younger. One of the bullies then starts throwing punches, hitting the little kid in the head. The bullied boy cries as he covers up his head, but the older bully continues to throw punches.
Then, as the first bully stops his assault the other bully runs in to attack, laying out the little kid with a powerful punch. The boy appeared to be hurt, but remained conscious and was trying to get back up as the video clip ended.
All the time an adult filmed the attack, and appeared to laugh as the young boy is beaten.
Details on the video are light. It appears to have first been uploaded to a site called Hood Leaks, and a version that was shared on YouTube was later taken down. It’s not known when it took place and what may have led up to the attack on the younger boy.
The little kid knocked out by the older bullies is reminiscent of another anger-inducing story. Back in March, video of an unprovoked attack on an Indianapolis playground went viral, showing a group of teens attacking a girl and her little brother.
The attack was caught on video, which was shared on Liveleak and Reddit and went viral. The attention led to a number of tips sent to Indianapolis police, who just a few days later announced that a suspect was under arrest.
In the video, a group of people were running through a park toward a playground and a young girl. It appeared the girl was attempting to explain something to the group when one teenage girl from the group attacked. The victim fell to the ground, shouting for the attack to stop.
The attack stopped for a moment when a young man from the group pulled the bully away, but the group followed the girl and her young brother down a path as they tried to escape. The original attacker then struck again, sending the victim to the ground and then attacked the boy, who looked to be about 5- or 6-years-old.
Many people believed that the attack was racially motivated, and when the young girl asked why she was being attacked, a person in the group appeared to yell, “You white, b***h.”
In another disturbing video from earlier this year, a father knocked out his young son inside a convenience store. The surveillance video showed the adult running up to the boy, who appeared to be fooling around inside the store. The man then delivered a hard punch or open-handed slap to the boy’s head, sending him crashing to the ground in tears. The man then yanked the boy back to his feet by the arm.
The video was later shared to Reddit by a friend of the store employee, hoping to identify the man.
“I’m trying to share this with as many people as I can so he can be identified,” he wrote.
The appeal worked, and the man was soon identified as Justin Whittington. He was arrested on charges of child endangerment, and later released on bail.
