Hopefully this hasn't already been posted...if it has, I'll just delete the thread. I did a search and found nothing.

POLK COUNTY, Fla. -- Video was released late Monday afternoon showing a brutal beating at the hands of a gang of teenage girls. Their motivation for the attack was allegedly so they could post the video on YouTube and MySpace.

The victim reported the attack after she was beaten so badly she had to be treated at the hospital. That's when the sheriff's office started looking into it and learned about the video.

The sheriff calls it shocking, saying he's never seen anything like it. It was a vicious attack all captured on home video inside a Polk County home.

When 16-year-old Victoria Lindsay arrived at her friend's house where she had been staying, six girls were waiting. Immediately, they started yelling and one girl began pummeling the victim.

On the video, the girls can be heard encouraging the fight in the background, even taunting Lindsay to fight back, all while one of them held the camera. The victim's family has said it was an elaborate plot to injure and embarrass Victoria Lindsay. Lindsay's parents couldn't believe their daughter had to endure the attack.

"That's my Tori. Don't do that to my Tori," said the victim's mother.

The 16-year-old suffered a concussion, eye injuries and several bruises. During the attack, two others were outside keeping watch according to the sheriff's office.

In fact, the sheriff said, Lindsay was lured into the home for the sole purpose of capturing and posting the video on the Internet. According to the sheriff's office arrest affidavit, Lindsay told deputies they "were going to post the beating on MySpace and YouTube."

Instead, it's the sheriff's office that ended up releasing it to the media and now all eight suspects accused of making it happen are charged with very serious crimes. All suspects face charges for false imprisonment and battery. Three of them were charged with kidnapping because, the sheriff's office said, they forced Lindsay into a car and drove her to another location after the beating.

The suspects were identified as 17-year-old Mercades Nichols, 17-year-old Brittini Hardcastle, 14-year-old April Cooper, 16-year-old Cara Murphy, 17-year-old Britney Mayes and 15-year-old Kayla Hassell. Zachary Ashley, 17, and Stephen Schumaker, 18, were identified by deputies as the lookouts.

"They weren't really involved, I don't know. I'm just overwhelmed by all of it. I don't know why the girls have them involved," said Debbie Shumaker, Stephen's mother.

All six of the girls attend Mulberry High School, according to the sheriff's office arrest affidavit.

Besides the fact that they were beating her up, it pisses me off that they wanted to do it to get popular on YouTube.

Seriously, what the ****? I don't even know how to describe my problem with that.

Why don't we all stop correcting each other's grammar mistakes ? Anyways, I read this a while ago, but this is a prime example of how brutal and cruel people can be regardless of age and gender. What's sickening is they were laughing about it after and they never realised the magnitude of their actions. It just sickens me to the core, these people deserve to be set on fire.

You can't really take him seriously when he says stuff like that

I agree with him that they shouldn't be tried as adults. This could ruin their whole future for beating up some girl.

Fights happen at my school all the time, sometimes involving more than one person, so why is this such a big deal?

no ... i can blame him, i understand people say stupid shit on tv to shock others, it doesn't make it any less stupid.

To be honest though i think they should be tried to the fullest extent, there's a difference between getting into a fight at school and luring someone into a house, beating her 6 on 1 and filming it.

Frankly i doubt anyone who thought this was a good idea has much of a future to ruin anyway.

Hahaha these types of comments make me laugh. Maybe the girl they beat up deserved to have the **** kicked out of her. Does that make it ok for those girls to have done it?

You do have a point there.

I think they're being made examples of, though. They're 16, and they're being tried as adults? That doesn't make sense. There's kids who have stabbed someone that weren't tried as adults.

I kindof agree with you, but at the same time .... a few of them we're 17 and 18.

Even at 16 you know that locking someone in a house and effectively torturing them for fun isn't what normal people do and so really isn't the action of a child, if you don't have some degree of adult thought and an understanding of morality by 16 then you actually have something wrong with you.

I just don't think age is a valid excuse in this case because really, by their age they know right from wrong.

At first, I thought this was something really ridiculous and it pissed me off.

But then I thought about it for about 8 seconds and realized:
1. She talks **** on MySpace
2. They were going to post it on Youtube to become popular.
3. Whoever thought it was a good idea was an idiot.

I couldn't care less.
