      Funny thing is if going by body language only it speaks,cause those two ladies are looking at him like it serves you right,that’s just my opinion.Don’t no the entire story so will not say anymore.

    Why are the people just standing around and not helping this guy? There is something wrong with society if this is the norm.

  9. BIGSKY May 18, 2017 at 8:18 pm

    Something seems to be missing from this story,These guys will have to explain to the courts what prompted them to react this way towards this individual.

    Well well well.

    Some of these comments suggest that they want the youngster to have done something wrong.

    It has to be the story you heard first, that he was stealing and he got caught so he was served some vigilante justice.

    Why would this be what people want? The world is going to he’ll in a handbag and ppl seem to wanna believe the worst about people even when a news source they suggest is credible gives the story there’s something wrong.

    I saw it, didn’t know the situation and I saw the face of the boy when I zoomed in. All I felt was sad whether he was stealing or not it just felt sad to me.

    This is where we are at as a democracy, who is judging who but only if its black on black………this wouldn’t have happen to anyone one of the 1%ers who control our country………………..

    A picture is worth a thousand words.
    The two ladies looking on, probaly are saying he got what he deserved.

    Somehow, I do not think that the two brothers attacked him and just tie him up for no apparent reason, they have to be much more that what was printed here.

    I too heard about the youngster breaking into someone’s home. Maybe it’s the old lady standing and watching, but we on the outside, we do not know what really took place.

    A clear sign that there are certain things out in the streets that you must take care of yourself.

    Only in the “Old Scotland” make me think I’m in the old James the Six of Scotland times.

    The persons from the area know this story is wrong but God isn’t sleeping. All will learn the truth about this boy.
    This is so hurtful how this has turned out.
