Girls I do adore? Nah. These chics should be ashamed of themselves, but they’re probably just upset that they’re in trouble. Our group of female rabble rousers hales from Lakeland, Florida. For 30 minutes, six teenage girls pummeled a classmate on video until she was unconscious. Two male friends served as lookouts while the teenagers beat up the victim. The girls were upset that the victim had allegedly posted insults about them on MySpace. All eight kids have been arrested. The victim has hearing loss and partial vision impairment in addition to bruises and swelling.
This is like “Mean Girls” meets “Banging in Little Rock.” Ganging up on that one girl was very cowardly and I’m really tired of criminals filming the evidence for their own prosecution. How should these girls be punished? Yes, what they did was horrible, but should they be put in jail? That would most certainly be a life-altering event. Do they deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law? The girls range in age from 14 to 17, certainly old enough to know better…or is it?
