Victoria Lindsay was attacked on March 30 by six girls when she arrived at a friend's home. At one point in the video, the beaten girl was knocked unconscious, and was later seen pleading to be let out of the house. SHOCKING STORY/SHOCKING VIDEO!!!

It was show of sheer animalism by the six teenagers who virtually beat a Florida girl to death. 16 yr-old Victoria Lindsay was reportedly attacked, pounded, pummeled, and beaten in the most animalistic way by six other teens, who videotaped the whole incident on 30 March and threatened to post the video on the two top visited sites.

WARNING!! Graphic, brutal video -

I hope no matter how old these kids are, they are tried as adults. It was pre-meditated, and all took a group-active part.

Stupid is as stupid does... These kids knew this was wrong to begin with, they should be tried as adults. Kids are getting away with too much these days. Quit giving these violent teenagers excuses not be punished. thank you for sharing this Kactus!!!

Noted. Not even going to try to see such a video. Sick that anyone would
do this. If you do the crime you do the time. Monsters of any age that
do these horrible things need to be taken off our streets.

the girl was on the news and she is blind in one eye and hearing has not returned in one ear. She also had a concussion. Who knows this girl could have permanent damage!!! They should be tried for this to make example out them and hopefully other stupid think twice before wanting to submit more fit clips. This is disgusting. The mother said she purposely chose to NOT fight back to make a point. Good for her, I hope she recovers.

I hope they, the attackers, 6 girls and 2 boys, all get at least 10 years in prison. Once they get into prison, they won't be laughing much at all. Most likely are to get beaten and stomped on while they're still a "fish".

As for the girl who got beaten up, I do hope she recovers well. She will, most likely, be psychologically scarred for the rest of her life.

TY, KacTus.

About 11 years ago here in Indiana some girls beat their friend like this and then set her on fire. She died. Last year with it being 10 years this woman wanted her sentence dropped and out of prison. They had a petition and everything. Funny how those types think we don't remember. Did she get out? No. I feel for the girl and her family though I question why people always think bad things happen to others. I was always just the opposite. My daughter says I was over protective. I said your alive aren't you. She says she would be anyway. I said we don't know that now do we:) My daughter claims I wouldn't let her cross the street til she was thirteen. I told her I can't believe I'd let her cross the street at such a young age:) she walked out & slammed the door. For pity sakes her curfew was the cities curfew, 10 oclock week nights and midnight on weekends. Just because I was always up on everything she did and where she went and with whom. Can't find them to help if you don't know where to start looking.

These teens there are raised so tuff, they do not even look like teens in the picture, they look like very hardened adults!!! I would not even say that, even if it's true except that they behave tuff brutal too. They were probably just jealous of the other girl so made up an excuse to ruin her face! Poor girl!
I hope she recovers!

I think there should be a petition sent to help this girl. They are making the Internet to be the enemy. I know FOR A FACT that bullying has been going on before we even knew how to get online.

These girls should most certainly be tried as adults - they seem to think they're above everyone & so "cool" or whatever the word in these days. This makes me sick! They are acting like wild beasts. What happened to their parental guidance and upbringing? If this is what the world is coming to and so many seem to find it entertaining, stop the planet & let me off!

Well they took prayer out of public shcools, they took discipline out of the schools, people carry guns and knives to school now. Wander why our young people are out of control??? Look at their video games, look at what is on the television,listen to some of the hatred in the popular songs on the satellite radio where it is not censured, and look at the newest movies!! Any wander these girls were violent??? Used to be just guys not anymore!! They behaved badly and should be punished hard as adults for acting that stupid,but they learned the behavior somewhere (just keep that in mind)!! Our young people have to worry about their lives, std's, and violence, and much more hmmmmmm we've come a long way baby!!

Noted, and YES they should be tried as adults, they certainly knew what they did was wrong! How do I know?, because they posted the boys as outlooks, they knew if they got caught, trouble for them would follow. We had the same thing here in BC, when the Virk girl was attacked and beaten, then thrown in the water and drowned.
