There are a lot of terrible people in this world. Some of them are overseas, but some of them live in our own backyard and commit terrible actions against our own people on a a daily basis.
Two girls in Syracuse, New York, thought that it would be a great idea to brutally beat a 62-year-old man who walked with a cane after he asked them to get off his property, the U.K. Express reported.
The girls, aged 14 and 15, punched the man in the face and tripped him after he tried to get them to leave his property, leaving him with a bruised eye.
The mother of one of the girls did something incredibly rare and said she is going to have her daughter apologize and take full responsibility for her actions.
As WTSM in Syracuse reported: “We also spoke to a mother of one of the girls in the video. She says what her daughter did was uncalled for, and says she apologizes to the man in the video. She tells us her daughter is accepting responsibility for the incident and will face whatever consequences come with it.”
The girls, who were not named due to their ages, could be facing charges of third-degree assault. Unfortunately, because they are minors they most likely won’t get punished as severely as they should.
“I hope the police will get justice for this man. This is sad, ignorant and disgusting!” said the man who recorded the encounter, according to the Express. Of course it’s unclear why he didn’t step in to try to help the victim.
Unfortunately, there are far too many people in this country who think that it is perfectly acceptable for them to disrespect their elders, or be physically violent with them.
Caution: Graphic Video
The one girl’s mother who is demanding her daughter apologize is a rare exception. If more parents were like her, the world would undoubtedly be a much better place.
