    NJ - Mayor Cory Booker Is More Than Miffed Over Viral Video

    The video was shot in the summer. A young man owes someone $20.00 and can't come up with it. Soooooo a group of men decide to make the young man strip naked, throw water on him nad proceed to beat him. That's bad, but the video became viral online and even worse not a soul called the cops.

    Mayor Booker seethed that the community is responsible just as the men are.

    Three men have been arrested. Names at link.

    I watched Mayor Booker's press conference and liked the way he spoke to the issue. The video of this kid being beaten is just awful and that it was shared and no one reported it is sad. It would be good to have maximum punishment for those that did the beating. Newark is a tough place and the Mayor did the right thing by speaking out to the community. IMHO

    Aside from the kid getting beaten, humiliated and fearing for his life is that of course nobody saw a thing and the people that viewed the video from far and wide just watched it so that's bad. However, really bad? It wasn't even the kids debt. It was his father's lousey $20.00 debt.

    People will beat ya down on video for your dad's debt.
