    OR - Latia Harris charged in beating caught on video, Salem, 2014

    Watch: Mom beaten as toddler tries to intervene; Salem police seek assailant

    The person who took the video appears to have happened upon the incident and began recording, probably using a cell phone. The video shows several others watching the beating and recording it on phones while the victim's toddler son tries to intervene on behalf of his mother, kicking at the assailant.

    Oh, for heavens sake. There are numerous children around while this is happening. I can't tell for sure, but it sounds like the assaulter is yelling at her about something that happened at court? Well, I guess pounding on this woman is as good of a way to keep yourself out of court as any other? And what's with these adult-looking men not intervening?

    There's a lot of racial discussion in the comments below the story. I won't touch on that. I don't think it's relevant.

    I hope they find this person and arrest her for beating this woman and for threatening the child who was only trying to protect his mother.

    It looks like she's been identified by people in the comments. Hopefully this info has been passed on to LE.

    It shouldn't be too difficult for LE to find this woman. Hopefully they will soon and she'll be brought to justice. I usually don't post comments like this but I certainly hope she gets a beat down once she gets to jail.

    It's really disturbing that no one helped the victim yet video taped it. It's a strange, scary world we live in.

    Mom beaten as toddler tries to intervene;

    It's disgusting....

    From the link:
    "Police in this county deal with this type of violence everyday. Yet, this video is physically sickening to watch," Salem Chief of Police John J. Pelura III said Wednesday.

    How sad for the poor boy to watch his poor mum get hurt, and yet no one helped the woman and just stood and watched?? What a sad sad world we live in.

    I can't bring myself to watch the video, but from the article you posted - I find this statement so telling and sad.

    "There is a moral and social breakdown in the fabric of our society which is clearly evident when a woman gets pummeled in broad daylight in front of her child while a dozen people pull out their phones to record the incident instead of calling for help," Pelura said. "There is so little regard for human life — by the actor and the bystanders."
    Judgment is not about destruction, but about setting things right.

    IMO this woman needs around the clock police protection until that psychopath is found and arrested.
