    I just saw this a few moments ago. Very glad the child had non-life-threatening injuries.

    The mob took the passenger in the car and beat him to death. My first reaction was to check the article again for the location, thinking, "this couldn't have happened in the US". But yep, it did--unreal.

    Mob mentality FTL.

    Worse part is, I bet none of them feel responsible for what they all did--they'll tell themselves it was everyone else.

    One of my favorite quotes is, "Each snowflake in an avalanche pleads not guilty."

    Morale of the story, keep your kids outta the f'ing parking lot!
    It's too bad the people that did this will never be caught.

    This reminds me of CSI. There was this taxi driver who ran over a kid walking across the street. The driver got out to see what happened then got back inside. A crowd across the street saw him and thought he was running away, when really he was radioing for help. The beat the driver to death.

    Maybe it's nothing like the story. I didn't read the article honestly. But I felt like saying something.

    That is effed up. Some of the parents that live in the apartment I live in are irresonsible as well. They think it's ok for their kids to play in the parking lot unsupervised. They expect others to look after their kids. The messed up part is that there is no traffic mirror so any kid could jump in front of the entrance area and get smacked by a car. I hate stupid parents.

    Driver might not have even been at fault, cant' say for sure. I mean how is a 2 year old wandering in a parking lot without their parents. If its anybodies fault its the parents.

    Ha, that's funny, because my first reaction was "I bet this happened in the states".

    Fucking Cowards, so now those who stand up for others get beaten to death by not one, but a gang of people.

    Its a fucked up world we live in, and steadily getting worse.

    I blame the parents, who the fuck lets a 2 year old play; alone and unsupervised, in a parking lot, surely thats asking for the kid to be runover. They don't know how to raise a kid, they want everyone and everything else to do it for them, bastards, take some time out to do something right.
