Father identifies son on viral beating video, notifies police

CHICAGO - The father of a Chicago teenager involved in the beating of another boy, has turned the boy into police.

Raymond Palomino was identified by his father in a video of a group of boys beating another boy that went viral on YouTube.

The boy can be seen stomping, punching and slamming another boy to the ground in what appears to be seven boys ganging up on one. The other teenagers suspected in the beating were wearing face masks disguising their identity.

"I had to call. I did what was right as a parent. I am in law enforcement myself. The right thing was to turn him in," said Michael Palomino.

1. As stated, that's a finer man than most

Who knows what details may come out later, but so much for all law enforcement folks being corrupt authoritarians who excuse violence among their own...

5. I hope so!

The video was explicit and it was vicious.

Seven on one...

7. If it were either of my sons

I would have to do the same thing.
And they know it.

Now that they past 40, safe to say that won't be an issue...whew.

8. He "turned the boy into police"? Dang, that's a bad idea


If it was me, I would have turned the boy in to police.

I doubt that city needs any more people prone to use excessive force among its police.

Turning him into police doesn't strike me as helpful here.
