Facebook video shows adults attacking 12-year-old girl

The mother of a 12-year-old California girl is demanding justice after video surfaced of her daughter being beaten up not just by a fellow student, but two adults.

Im beyond mad, the girls mother told KTLA-TV on Saturday. I just see red. Everything you see in the video is like a hate crime.

According to the station, the girl, identified by her first name, Tia, and another female student had planned to settle their existing differences in a fistfight near Dana Middle School in San Pedro, California.

However, the other girl allegedly showed up with two adults, one of whom can be seen grabbing Tia by the hair, punching her, and holding her for the other student and another woman to attack. Tia also told the station the woman who first attacked her used a racial slur against her.

1. Wow-

She seemed pretty level-headed and mature for a 12 year old (who seemed resigned to the fact that she was going to have to duke it out to settle the problem).

Her explanations were reasonable, calm, clear and concise, and were backed up by the video. Plus, the blue shirt mom needed back-up; she was in danger of getting her butt kicked by a 12 y.o.

3. Your post is disgusting. The Blue shirt mom needed back-up because she was in danger

from a 12 year old? Did you see the video that showed the adult at all times in control and beating the 12 year old girl? She was never in fear. There were two adult women and a 12 year old child assaulting another 12 year old child. Three against one!!!! How would any of them ever be in fear? I am just simply appalled that you would post something so vile and ignorant in spite of what the video clearly showed. You probably think it is OK that the two adults have not been charged with assaulting a minor. I am hoping that you are simply a troll trying to cause mischief, because your post simply defies common sense.

2. LAPD is messed up. Video said they would "investigate" on Monday. But video

clearly shows two adults attacking the 12 year old. Isn't that a crime that allows an arrest now? Too lazy or indifferent to take action until Monday? Substation closed until Monday? Officers in church until Monday? Watching football and eating Pizza until Monday? Gone fishin until Monday? Can't get a warrant until Monday? If two black women attacked a 12 year old white girl in San Pedro, there would have been an arrest--because it was an assault. Justice for blacks kid gets deferred? As I said LAPD is messed up.

4. This is a local crime story

Rawstory watches a tv show and then reports on what is seen. This is not news of national interest.
Please repost in the California group, or General Discussion.
