And it would serve you well to remember it.
Four 16- and 17-year-old girls were charged as adults in the attack on the 48-year-old woman, a crime that has shaken this struggling city of about 30,000 residents just outside Philadelphia. The girls were charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, burglary and harassment. Another teen girl and a 19-year-old woman were also arrested later Friday afternoon.
The woman, whom police described as “mentally challenged,” was punched, kicked and hit with a shoe and chair, and suffered cuts and bruises but no broken bones, authorities said. Her name was not released.
There are so many parts of that are disturbing for different reasons it is mind-boggling and the incident as a whole is an illustration of evil.
Lets start with the fact that none of the ghouls girls are remorseful about the attack and that they did it for “fun”. Anyone that would physically assault another human being for “fun” has no business being with the rest of society. They are obviously sociopathic and have absolutely no empathy towards their victims.
Next up to ensure they would have “fun” and not risk someone fighting back, they attacked a woman who was mentally challenged. The woman didn’t even think to report it to police, it was found after the aggressors posted video of the attack on Facebook.
Some look at me like I’m nuts when my morning routine to get dressed involves a firearm. If you see me without one, odds are I’m either where I cannot legally carry, or I’ve just woken up and haven’t gotten dressed yet.
This pack rolled up onto someone else’s property and attacked them, unprovoked, in superior numbers. When the woman attempted to flee they followed her into her house.
I have a fire extinguisher in my house for the unlikely event of a fire. I carry a gun for the unlikely event of someone physically attacking me or breaking into my home.
