Two Children Beaten In An Indianapolis Park; Motive Unknown, Unknowable

Font Size:

WARNING: This video is disturbing.

WTTV, Indianapolis:

IMPD detectives expect to file charges against a teenager seen on video beating up another teenager. The video was posted on the Internet and across social media sites. Lt. Richard Riddle with the IMPD Public Information Office said detectives believe the incident at Brookside Park happened Saturday morning.

The graphic video shows a 14-year-old girl attacking another girl and then shoving the victim’s 5-year-old brother to the ground…

Authorities have not disclosed any information about a possible motive.

And they’d better not, as you’ll agree after you watch the full, unredacted video:

Don’t say it. Don’t even think it. There’s no way to know why this happened. Period.

There will be no protests. No hashtags. No federal investigation. No “direct action” against people eating brunch. This is a local crime story, and that’s how it’ll stay.

In fact, forget the video you just saw altogether. The well-being of two innocent children isn’t worth the possible damage to the prevailing narrative.
