A disturbing video is going viral on MLK Day. Attackers video taped their assault on an Asian teenager in Chicago. Seven teenagers surround and mercilessly punch and kick a lone teenager making his face a complete bloody mess. This isn’t the dream that Martin Luther King Jr. had.
The original video has been deleted, but mirror videos are popping up all over YouTube. Early reports show that some of the attackers were white and others were Asian. The reason for this fight is still unclear. Hopefully justice will be served quickly.
Update: The attack happened around 4 pm in an alley in the 2800 block of South Princeton Avenue, just south of Chinatown.. The 17-year-old boy assaulted in the video was robbed of $180. Police report that the attack is a retaliation for a previous assault.
update: Looks like a case of Marie Curie Metropolitan High School vs Thomas Kelly High School.
Helpless Asian Teen Attacked and Jumped By 7 Others Behind School (contains violence and profanity)

update: CBS Chicago is reporting that the victim in the video allegedly took part in an October 2011 attack in which 20 teens jumped on two others.
7 Teens Charged In Brutal Attack (six boys and a girl)
I really hope, that ALL the teenagers spend a life time in jail, and that the 15 year old girl, does NOT just get away with in.
Personal result for punishment.
1. unlimited jail time, to SHOW their parents that.. they cannt just let there kids run around beating on other people 2. SPECIFICALLY targeted towards the 15 year old girl, she absolutely CANNOT jsut get away with it, lets her go, but charger her parents a LUMP SOME OF MONEY, a small portion should go to the poor asain male, and the other larger portion should be funded towards the police to help Chicago help and protect teenagers around high schools.
3. As for everyone help a large lump some of money, this shuld LEAD an example and set the standard of punishment, MEANING they cannot jsut serve a minimal sentense in jail.
** I’m sure of any of there kids got brutally beaten they wouldn’t settle for what is done, Chicago SHOULD FIGHT FOR THIS and PUNISH their parents…. and if their parents don’t want to worry about this… when the kids of 18/19 they should take care of it themselves, this should scar their lives**.
That is very very cruel. I don’t know who the fuck they think they are! I’m very sorry for swearing, but that is awful. I bet they think they’re voluminous to that Asian(helpless boy) but they’re going to be getting they’re asses thrown in jail and getting electricited in the electric chair!
I agree with Johna, they should be electricuted or a life time of jail.
I thought this was bad, but what gets me mad is in the video they’re talking about those 7 guys mostly, what about the 20 guys that jumped on 2 kids before? That asian that got beat up was apart of that 20 people, so he did the same to someone else. It looks as if hes innocent, and in heart he probably is, but he was involved in a beating with 20 others, hes lucky he didn’t have 20 on him, or he probably wouldn’t have even escaped. Why the f*ck don’t the news talk about the other beating that happened? If you’ve seen the video, the guys aren’t beating him up for no reason, they’re beating him up becasue they’re angry as hell at him, did you hear the “You think its funny?”, that asian did the same thing to someone, so thats what he gets in return. My conclusion is everybody that was involved should get some time, even the asian that got beat up, but i’d say the asian doesn’t deserve nearly as much time as the others since he already got what he deserved.
I suddenly hate those kids
THESE SEVEN KIDS ARE GUTLESS COWARDS, TO DO THIS TO A FELLOW HUMAN,REGUARDLESS OF WHAT HE DID,I CANNOT COMPREHEND, DISGUSTING. GOD CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH AND IF WE ALL GO TO HEAVEN, GOD HELP HEAVEN, IM NOT EVEN RELIGIOUS.
