12 Year Old Girl Beaten While Neighbor Films

A man who filmed a group of girls attacking a 12-year-old has told Providence, Rhode Island, police that he thought it was just a prank.

The man is not being charged and, according to police, is not involved in the case sinche te video is no longer in his possession. As I’m sure you can imagine, the girl’s mom has stated that she is horrified that the man didn’t try to stop her daughter’s attack.

From CNN:

Two of the girls have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, and two others have been charged with simple assault and conspiracy, said Providence Police Sgt. Matthew Ryan.

The 12-year-old suffered two black eyes, a bruised nose and bite marks on her hands. Holly Gingerella, the girl’s mother, said, “My daughter is doing OK. She doesn’t look very good, but she’s a strong child.” She said her daughter has a shunt in her brain to aid with a medical problem, but the shunt was not damaged in the assault.

The man posted the video of the incident on YouTube, where he shows his face to the camera and describes the attack, “Kids are (expletive) sitting outside for like 20 minutes saying, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that. You gotta keep going, you gotta keep fighting.’ They’re like planning it so they can just record it.” While he speaks, girls can be heard shouting in the background.

    What the crap is wrong with people? Listening to his explanation sounds like he could have figured out that it wasn’t a prank

    For the life of me, I cannot understand why the guy who Filmed this incident is not being Charged with anything… It seems pretty clear to me that he wasn’t even the least bit interested in approaching these girls and attempting to find OUT what was actually going on, that he would have surely noticed the “Deadly Weapon” involved, and that, since he posted the Video on YouTube, he simply had every intention of doing so in the first place, which, in itself, should be considered SOME type of Crime when filming an Attack of ANY kind— ESPECIALLY with a Deadly Weapon. Furthermore, he CONTINUED to Film when it would have been obvious to ANYbody that this girl was sustaining REAL Injuries. “Thought it was a Prank” my EYE. I can’t believe the Police are letting him get away with that crock of shit. I saw the Photos of that poor girl during an Interview with her Mother on TV, and she was busted-up bad. There’s no WAY that guy didn’t know it was a real Assault. If the Authorities don’t want to hold him partially responsible, I know, if I was this girl’s Mother, I’d make sure he couldn’t even HOLD a Camera again. Bad enough what these girls did to her, but HIS actions (rather, LACK of) speak for themselves loud and clear in MY book. Pathetic and inexcusable.

    @Honeydog, its because in this day and age, people can be sued for intervening. If he had intervened and one of the attacking girls claimed he touched her or hit her etc. He would be in hot water. It’s the same reason people don’t stop to help people on the side of the road anymore.

    Oh I realize how Touchy some situations are anymore with regard to certain Laws, but, excuse me, this guy didn’t even run into his House to call the Police so THEY could at least stop it, OR, for that matter, even run next door to inform the girl’s Family (or anyone ELSE) of what was happening to her. Not physically Intervening is ONE thing, but standing there with a Video Camera, watching— and enJOYING it— and doing NOTHING to help the girl is another. He was the girl’s NEIGHBOR for God’s Sake— She wasn’t some Stranger on the side of the road. No… This guy wasn’t at ALL thinking of being SUED if he tried to Help… I would bet it never entered his Mind… He simply had his own selfish Motives all along so he could get his Kicks by putting it on YouTube. I saw a News Story the other night about a young girl being Molested near a man’s Home, and the man immediately ran into his House and called the Police, and then ran back outside and INTERVENED by grabbing the Molester and HOLDING him until the Police arrived… and, take note of this– while in physical confrontation, the Molester pulled a Knife on the man, but the man fought him off and kept him right there for the Cops. This man is being called a HERO by Authorities… and yet, he INTERVENED— Because he saw something happening that he knew was WRONG, and someone was in DANGER and being HURT. I don’t care what anybody says, the guy who didn’t make a Move to help this girl while she was being beaten to a Pulp had NO Excuse or Reason for his Actions— much less that he was “Leary” of what any of those girls would claim— other than being a big fat disgusting low-life Jerk.

    I think it’s a shame that this attack happened. I’m also appalled at the lack of adult supervision in that home where these girls were havinag their sleepover! The girls who attacked the girl deserve to be charged with crimes, but their parents deserve some legal punishment as well. I saw Dr. Phil yesterday, and he had the victim in this case, her mother, and two of the girls involved in the fight and their mothers as well. I’m sorry, but these mothers claim they do all they can to try and get their girls help and to do the right thing…..complete crap!
