A video has emerged showing a group of teenagers thinking they’re macho after attacking other teens for no reason.
According to The Daily Mail, the incident took place on a dock in Quincy, Massachusetts around 5 pm.
The footage shows a group of thugs surrounding another group of teens, spitting at and taunting them.
The thugs quickly get violent.
One of the victims, wearing a light blue T-shirt and white cap, gets thrown to the ground before being punched and kicked as he covers his head to protect himself.
He gets up and walks away as one of his friends is thrown to the deck and is violently attacked.
Quincy resident Shelby Chiasson told Boston 25, “I think it’s inappropriate and they looked like they did nothing wrong,” as the video made the rounds on social media. “I feel bad. There was one kid who stuck up for them and that’s the right thing to do.”
Of course, being cowards, the thugs left the scene before the police arrived.
The authorities are hoping that someone can identify the attackers but are asking the public not to share their names.
“For victim privacy reasons, we would request that if a similar situation occurs, rather than post to social media, contact the investigating police agency and forward directly to them – particularly if it could involve juvenile victims,” the police say.
