KFVS12 reports on this very troubling story of two black Missouri teenagers beating up a disabled man and then posting it to Youtube. Wow. Just wow.
The beating took place in Caruthersville, MO. An eyewitness alleges that Crocker had thrown the first punch. Possible. But no excuse for the onslaught that was returned back at him.
The News-Tribune reported:
The girls are in juvenile custody and were due in court Thursday on undisclosed juvenile charges. Prosecutors are also considering charges against a man who is seen with the girls in the video clip. He told KFVS-TV that Crocker threw the first punch.
Crocker told the station the girls simply attacked him.
“I told her (one of the girls) to leave me alone,” Crocker said. “She’s 15. I said ‘Baby leave me alone.’ I mind my own business, and I sit here and I drink.”
He said he refused to fight back because the attackers were girls.
“My mama always told me before she died, ‘You hit a woman you’re not a man,”’ said Crocker.
