VIDEO: Teens Beat Man in Random Attack in Delmar Loop, Post Video on Facebook

The corner where a man was randomly attacked by teens who posted the video on Facebook.
"Go ahead."

At the sound of those two words, spoken calmly by someone filming what's about to happen on a phone, a group of teens began to punch and kick a man in the Delmar Loop Sunday in what appears to be a random but orchestrated attack.

A group of about six teens wallop a man trying to walk to a Metro stop several times before running toward their friend with the camera and celebrating gleefully. They later posted the video to Facebook, where it went viral before being taken down.

The victim told KMOV (Channel 4) he'd never met the young people who blindsided him near the Pageant in broad daylight. He suffered a concussion and had to get nineteen stitches after the attack.

St. Louis police have said they're investigating the short and brutal video.

Reddit user britneymisspelled posted two screenshots from the video of the teen who first hit the victim and the teen who filmed the whole thing go down:

It is random. They pick out random people. However, it's still terrible. And people wonder why I usually don't do well around others.

Where's the community outrage for this like what is happening with the cop shooting a kid who tried to disarm him!! Where the community outrage for the grandma who was killed while walking with her grandchildren!!

I went to her page after Jessica suggested it. It's great. She's batshit crazy. So full of hate. wow.

In New Orleans lt definitely is black on white but this case is not that way. looks like the kid attacked was wearing headphones. This is why you never wear headphones since you are not cognizant on things around you.

Where are their parents ?! The teens need to be charged as adults . The loop is amazing and has gone down hill. I loved going there with my family but hesitate. It needs to be patrolled better . Over GHETTO SHIT in STL ...

And we wonder why families have left St. Louis. A sad day for us all. Manners and respect start in the home.

Send them to Guantanamo Black Site and torture the manhood out of them. I mean their terrorists right? Seems fitting.

Probably a group of kids who will be future food stamps bums wasting away government money. More than likely joining the rest of the homeless people in the Loop trying to collect quarters and selling fake hashish

bottom line is what was done was wrong .. They must be punished and that is it!!!! Everybody wants to blame the parents but I remember when I was young knowing right from wrong and not having my parents tell me this.. And that especially includes hurting innocent people.. Some people are just wired to be bad it's unfortunate but true..

At one time in our history this country had public floggings and hangings in the town square. We need to bring that back and a lot of this senseless crime would cease.

Not only should these punks be made an example but the absent parenting should be brought to light. Parents should be held accountable. You are taught right from wrong!

Ray first of all. You need to learn some fucking manners when talking to a woman. And B. Hate on her all you want she's just telling the TRUTH. Look at the media and which networks blackout the facts and coverage. So essentially you should be the one to shut the fuck up.

Ray Thomas

For the stupid bitch that said this is the" liberal agenda",shut the fuck up,,,,this is not about conservative or liberal,,this is about how some trash place no value on a human life and trash that have never seen a consequence for any action they have ever done because "they momma" has 6 kids ,no daddy and don`t care as long as she has her crack and alcohol and probably thinks "he my best baby" he only been to jail 15 times and its cool because "they" a minor

No one ever speaks up when a white or Asian kid gets beat up. Our society is in big trouble when an unsuspecting person of any color can't walk down the damn street without getting the shit beat out of them for no reason

The loop has become a very scary place. UCity police and St. Louis City police need to have beat cops walking like the old days. With the fortune that's been spent on the loop it's time to restore law and order so everyone can enjoy it
