Astoria Park beatdown
From CBS New York:
Two eighth grade students are now recovering from a terrifying attack in Queens.
The girls were jumped by a mob of high school students in Astoria and the fight was all caught on video.
Cellphone cameras were rolling as a wild mob scene broke out in Astoria Park on Friday.
Stuck in the middle was 14-year-old Samatha Gonzalez, seen on the video in a black and white striped shirt.
The honor student said she was badly beaten while trying to defend her friend Christina Campos, who was getting punched and kicked by more than a dozen high school students.
“About seven to 10 girls just started grabbing me and held my hands and just started kicking me in the face,” Gonzalez told CBS 2′s Hazel Sanchez. “They threw cones at me. They hit us with belt buckles, with Timberlands, umbrellas, guys kicking us — like guys, really?”
Isn't it great that thugs these days record video of themselves committing crimes and then post it online so that the cops have an easy time catching them?
