In a Mcdonald’s in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, outrage has been sparked as a video is released showing a gang of teen girls in a massive brawl, but a crowd does nothing except stand and watch, and obviously videotape the savagery for Internet consumption.
A viral video depicts straight strategy as a gang of teen girls descend on a single victim and brutally attack her.
The victim (shown in video in blue) is involved in the altercation for more than two whole minutes, and the massive crowd in the background instead of attempting to end the violence, cheers the girls on. At one point, the victim is left motionless on the ground as other girls kick and stomp her.
The video provided is graphic.
Paul Goodman, the owner of the franchise, released a statement reported by WPIX11, saying:
“The safety of my employees and customers is my top priority. In keeping with my restaurant policy, my employees contacted the police at the onset of this situation. As part of the Flatbush community, I will continue to work with the NYPD and community leaders to ensure the safety of customers. Since this is now a under police investigation it would be inappropriate for me to comment further.”
Community activist Tony Herbert spoke on the attack, “The tenacity of placing something on video to shoot a young lady being beat down by six or seven young women is ludicrous in our community.”
According to witnesses, police presence around the McDonald’s has been increased.
As of Wednesday, at least one arrest has been made in the vicious attack, despite the fact that the victim and her mother have been uncooperative with police, per the Daily News.
