    Street cred. It's like a ritual.

    From one of the Tribune articles, the authorities basically suggested (paraphrasing here) that kids are just fucking stupid these days about consequences.

    Little delinquents will always be little delinquents, only now they're all equipped with HD camera phones with broadband internet access.

    YouTube almost saved them by removal policy, but never underestimate the power of the internet to send abuses around the world three times before the police find out.

    The video was posted on YouTube and removed twice. But a Reddit page on the attack drew more than 500 comments. Many even provided the names of those allegedly involved in the beating.

    Community activist Andrew Holmes says social media is a useful tool in solving the crime. “It was just disgusting, but I’m glad that the people are calling the Chicago Police Department, and posting information on video and on YouTube,” Holmes said.

    In fact, police found out about the beating because so many people called them and showed them the YouTube video.
    And yeah, the allegation about "20v2" is an unfounded claim by the defendant's lawyer. And yeah, no video of that fight...odd isn't it?

    I found this video disturbing as it reminded me of when I was attacked several years ago. I managed to get away but ended up in hospital with stitches in my head.

    I don't know about justice but I would love to have paid them in kind. But Judo_uk is absolutely right, you have to know who it is that is responsible and not rely on gossip and heresay. Otherwise you're just another pitch fork weilding village idiot.

    I see judo_uk's point to but here is the thing. These bastards might have gotten away with it. They didn't because of pitch fork wielding village idiots like myself.

    Making sure that his attacker doesn't get away with it is a way to care for the victim too.

    Even if such a video did surface, it wouldn't get the 7 off the hook at all.

    They're just dumber than **** and put no thought into anything they were doing. I've seen quite a few criminals get busted recently because they taped their own crimes for no fucking reason.

    Isn't that how Bobby Joe Blythe got in trouble? I guess he thought everyone would get a big laugh out of it. The kids probably did, too.
