Teens Beat up Homeless with Baseball Bats

Video above

Article Below

I know the response to this jail only. But they should get hit a couple of time. I mean look at Signapore and what they did to the US citizen who defaced their land with spray paint.

Yeah, this is just disgusting.

Someone just released a list of the worst cities to be homeless in. I was shocked that nearby Lawrence, Kan. was No. 2. Some city in Florida was No. 1.

I hope they catch the bastards, I wonder how old they are. If they're juveniles they'll probably just get a slap on the wrist, or a judge who no longer believes in punishment.

We live in a culture of violence. Our "entertainment" oozes violence - and there are rarely consequences.

i wish i knew. i always think movies are too violent. i can't imagine why people get so caught up in sex, but not violence.

there are times when violence is artistically important, perhaps for historical accuracy (Schindler's List), or to chronicle the degrading effects of violence on the individual (Munich), or perhaps to challenge what we think of as violence with utter absurdity (Kill Bill).

however, i'd never go to a horror movie or one of those macho slam-bam Bruce Willis-type movies (that don't seem to be as common as they were in the late 80s).

Disgusting?? What was disgusting is seen the helpless guy get hit multiple times with a baseball bat. Or recently a homeless guy was set on fire while asleep here in the city of SF, a city of peace and love?

If you were attacked dont tell me you would be like brother I forgive you. No you would want to beat the S--t out of them.

You will never get away from violence or sex, unless you take that from the people and become a dictator and tell people what they are allowed to watch.

I guess your stance on viewing things safe for society is CareBears???

well, if we hear of any stories of homeless minotaurs beaten on the streets of the OC, we'll know exactly who to blame.














(though i haven't seen the movie ... are the minotaurs bad?)

bad ass maybe.

Plenty of mythological creatures in a battle for good & evil - standard literary stuff.
