Facebook Video Shows Naked Teen Beaten
(Memphis) They are laughing, but the scene is ugly and serious.
Three teens can be seen kicking another teen in the head as he lay on the ground, naked in a video posted to Facebook.
The video is 34 seconds long, plenty of time to see how bad the teen was hurt.
In the end, you can hear him moaning and see blood on his face.
Those who have seen the video have had similar reactions.
“Oh no! Oh no!,” said Eve Parrott, a special-ed teacher.
“Oh my god,” said Cedric Dixon.
Local teachers Zinker williams and Cedric Dixon say the video highlights a bigger problem.
“I think we need to get some help for our students because it seems like they are really lost,” said Dixon. “We need some major interventions.”
The person who posted the violent video on Facebook is apparently a student at Whitehaven High School.
School officials say they recognize his face and know him as “Charles.”
Wednesday, the school had a conference for special-education teachers.
That conference is where we talked to teacher Eve Parrott, “I think something should be done about this level of violence in this city!”
