3 Victoria Lindsay Defendants Get Off Scot Free – Charges Dropped Against Gang Beating Defendants – Video

In a dramatic turn of events in the notorious Victoria Lindsay teen gang beating case, three of the eight teen age defendants in the case had all charges against them dropped and the prosecutor has no additional plans to charge them further.

Victoria Lindsay is a 16-year-old Lakeland, Florida, cheerleader that was ambushed by a gang of her classmates and severely beaten until she lost consciousness. Once she regained consciousness, she was beaten again.

Lindsay suffered a concussion, eye and ear damage along with bruises and lacerations and recurring nightmares about the beating. The startling part about the entire incident was that the defendants had filmed the beating so they could post it on YouTube and MySpace.

Polk County prosecutors dropped charges against the three defendants because of insufficient evidence against them. The three were Cara Murphy, 16, Zachary Ashley, 17, and Stephen Schumaker, 18.

When the eight defendants were initially arrested, the Polk County Sheriff’s office had stated that Ashley and Schumaker had stood guard outside the site of the attack, which was the home of Mary Nichols, the grandmother of defendant Mercades Nichols, who lived with her grandmother. Lindsay was living with Nichols and her grandmother at the time of the attack.

The Sheriff’s office had also initially stated that Murphy, the single female defendant whose charges were dropped, was the teen filming the beating. A female voice can be heard on the video from behind the scenes saying, “Ooh, yeah, baby. Ooh, yeah!” The Sheriff’s office had stated that voice was none other than defendant Cara Murphy. Watch the original video released by the Sheriff’s office.

The Sheriff had also stated early on that it was Murphy’s voice on the video letting the other girls know that the video was running out of film. “Seventeen seconds left,” the voice said while the beating continued. “Make it good.” Watch the second video released by the Sheriff’s office.

Neither the Sheriff’s office nor the prosecutor gave any indication why charges against the three were dropped other than lack of evidence. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd had even said early on in the case that one of the boys stuck his head in from outside and told the girls to quiet down because neighbors were able to hear the fight.

Why the evidence against Murphy and the two male defendants had evaporated remains a mystery, although Murphy’s attorney has said that she has agreed to testify against the other defendants.

Usually prosecuting attorneys strike deals with a single defendant to testify against other defendants in exchange for a lesser charge or perhaps charges being dropped altogether.

It is unknown whether any deal was struck in this case although it certainly seems like one was.

Said Cara Murphy after the charges against her were dropped, “I guess I’m sorry for all that happened. I’m glad the charges got dropped though.”

Murphy said that she never realized that the incident would turn into a national controversy. After she apologized to Victoria Lindsay, the victim, on the air but not in person, Murphy admitted she could have done more to stop the beating.

“During the time I definitely can say I felt scared for her. Once I saw the video, I realized this was a bad thing that happened.”

Her attorney, Melodie Lopez, said, “My client and I are happy this is over. She should not have been charged. We feel vindicated that the charges have been dropped. I think it’s wrong that all the kids there were charged as a group. Their involvement was not the same.”

Let’s see…Victoria suffers a concussion, permanent vision and hearing loss plus numerous bumps, scrapes and bruises, and Cara realized “this was a bad thing that happened?”


And what about remorse…was there any on Cara’s part?

“I guess I’m sorry for all that happened,” said Cara.

Oh yeah. That sounds like remorse alright. She guesses she’s sorry. What she really meant to say was “My attorney made me say I’m sorry.” What she’s really sorry about is getting caught in the first place.

But she’s “glad the charges got dropped though.”

I’ll bet she is! Cara goes from facing 15 years to life in prison one day to getting off scot free the next. Who wouldn’t be glad?

Does it sound to you like she has learned anything from this ordeal? I’ll bet next time she will cover her tracks better.

She must really like prison orange because she’s not just wearing it in the slammer. She’s even wearing it on the outside.

Philadelphia Police Beating – Video – Defense Claims Mistaken Identity


We have the video of the Philadelphia police beating three shooting suspects after an auto chase. At least 15 officers were allegedly involved in the beating, and 13 have been removed from duty pending a police investigation of the incident.

Attorneys representing the three defendants claim that the police officers that were involved in the beating concocted a story that the defendants were shooting suspects so they could cover up a police error that the police mistook one of the defendants for another man sought in a cop killing from the previous weekend.

The first video is strictly a video of the beating with no audio to speak of:

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and Mayor Michael Nutter denied the cover-up allegations and said that officers legitimately pursued the defendants’ car after a triple shooting.

The lawyers claim that their clients, Brian Hall, 23, Dwayne “Lionel” Dyches, 24, and Pete Hopkins, 19, were not involved in any shooting. Instead, they said that police chased their vehicle and beat the trio because they believed that Dyches, who was a passenger in the car, was a man wanted in the fatal shooting of Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski.

Liczbinski was a 12-year member of the force who was shot in the line of duty last week while pursuing three robbery suspects and who was buried today.

If the lawyers’ claim proves to be true, the police officers involved in the beating incident could be facing some very severe charges.

The second video is some of the beating plus a reporter’s version of the incident:

Philadelphia Police Beating

The beating, which was filmed by a Fox News TV affiliate helicopter, came after several police cars surrounded and blocked the escape of Hall, Dyches and Hopkins’ vehicle.

Three groups of officers then allegedly dragged the trio from their car and proceeded to punch, kick, and stomp the defendants and also beat one of the defendants with a night stick.

Rev. Al Sharpton suggested the beating was racially motivated and called it “worse than Rodney King,” referring to a similar beating of a single black man by Los Angeles police officers in 1991. The acquittal of the police officers involved in that beating motivated rioters in the LA riots of 1992.

Middle School Copycat of Victoria Lindsay Beating – Video

This video has copy cat written all over it. In a video-taped beating, a group of 12 to 14-year-old middle school girls in Clarksville, Indiana, lured a 12-year-old girl to a warehouse parking lot, beat her up and filmed the beating. Then they placed the video of the beating on Photobucket.com, which is a video sharing site somewhat similar to YouTube and MySpace.


Photobucket quickly took the video down, but we were able to obtain a portion of the video, which is shown below. Police Chief Dwight Ingle said in the second video, which is a CBS report on the incident, that student who filmed the beating was initially hailed in school as a hero.

However, as more details of the beating emerged the students rapidly changed their attitude.

Police believe that the beating is a copycat of a similar incident that occurred in Lakeland, Florida, to 16-year-old Victoria Lindsay by six of her Mulberry High classmates. However, in this beating, the attacker used rocks as a weapon repeatedly hitting the 12-year-old in the head with the rocks.

Evidently the Clarksville Middle School girls wanted their 15 minutes of fame, or infamy, too. The 12-year-old victim is the daughter of a police officer and was treated for cuts and bruises at an area hospital.

The attack occurred on April 12th in a warehouse parking lot in Clarksville, which is just north of the Ohio River, is on the Indiana-Kentucky border and is more or less a northern suburb of Louisville, KY.

Police said that the incident began with one girl initiating an argument with the victim and then the altercation escalated into a fight, in which the 12-year-old victim was hit in the face and head repeatedly while the other girls watch, jeered and laughed.

Authorities are not releasing the names of the victim or the perpetrators because they are all minors. Fortunately, the victim in this incident was not injured as severely as Victoria Lindsay was.

The reports are not clear which girl in the video is the victim, but it believed that the perpetrator is the girl in the light pink colored jacket. The victim in this case fought back rather than let the attackers have their way with her.

CBS report and video on beating (sorry about the ad, but I could not get rid of it):

It is also believed that the attackers are a bit older than the victim.

Police Chief Dwight Ingle said that the attackers used rocks as weapons. “You can actually hear the rocks thumping on the skull of the victim,” he said.

Victoria Lindsay’s 911 Call – Teen Gang Beating Victim

Victoria Lindsay is the 16-year-old cheerleader from Lakeland, Florida, who was gang beaten by six other teen age girls from her school so they could post a video of the beating on YouTube and MySpace. Lindsay’s 911 call to the police after the attack was released by the Polk County Sheriff and is included below.

Here are the mug shots of the alleged perpetrators:

Police have said that the “animalistic” ambush on Victoria lasted 30 minutes during which Victoria’s head was brutally beaten into a wall until she fell unconscious. See the actual video of the beating.

Victoria told People magazine in her first interview after the beating that she was in “a lot of pain” after the attack.

Victoria is also quoted as telling People, “Your No. 1 friend is your family. Don’t trust anybody,” and if “you put it on the Internet, it will live in infamy.”

Obviously Victoria feels betrayed by girls that she thought were her friends including Mercades Nichols, whom she was living with until the day of the attack. Mercades was allegedly one of the attackers.

At her tender age, Mercades already has a violent legal record. Last fall her boyfriend at the time filed a dating violence injunction against her.

YouTube removed this video from its site because some wuss flagged it as inappropriate. YouTube has been removing any of my videos that are the least controversial. The folks at YouTube seem to confuse “Community Standards” with censorship, thinking one automatically follows the other. I now have it set up elsewhere, so watch knowing that YouTube thinks you are not capable of making your own decision about what you should be able to watch.

Alleged Drug Dealer Forces Baby to Smoke Marijuana – Video

Melvin Blevins, a Pataskala, Ohio, alleged drug dealer is caught on video forcing his 18 month old baby niece to smoke marijuana while he baby sits the infant.

A woman in the original video but not in this section of it is 16-year-old Angel Daily and girlfriend to the 18-year-old Blevins. After he filmed the video Blevins sold the camera to a Columbus, Ohio, pawn shop with the video still on the hard drive.

The pawn shop manager discovered the video on the camera and called police. Both Blevins and his female accomplice were arrested for child endangerment and corrupting another with drugs. They have pleaded innocent.

Blevins had also been indicted separately on a drug bust that included $3.2 million dollars in cash and 2100 pounds of marijuana. The pot was discovered in a trailer parked outside the home of Angel Dailey’s father, Donald Dailey.

The drug bust is reportedly the largest in Ohio history with the pot having been compressed into bricks. The cash was found hidden in the walls and under the floorboards of the homes of Donald Dailey and his brother, Tim Dailey.

Six Teen Girls Gang Beat 16-year-old for YouTube Video

Here is the much sought after video of six Florida teen age girls gang beating another 16-year-old girl and video taping the incident just so they could post the video of the beating on YouTube and MySpace.

The victim is Victoria Lindsay, a Lakeland, Florida, high school student and cheerleader, who suffered a concussion during the beating, along with hearing and vision loss. Lakeland is near the Tampa metropolitan area.

The six alleged perpetrators are from age 14 to 17 and all attend Mulberry High School together. The six, along with two 18-year-old boys who stood as lookouts during the attack, will be tried as adults.

All are being charged with felony battery and felony false imprisonment. Brittni Hardcastle, Brittany Mayes and Mercades Nichols, all 17, also are charged with felony kidnapping and felony witness tampering because the three girls allegedly drove Lindsay around after the attack and threatened to beat her even more if she reported the beating to the police.

Eventually, they dropped her off at an intersection near another teen’s home.

Prior to the video shown here, the six girls allegedly beat Lindsay to the point that she lost consciousness. Once she awoke, the alleged attackers began the video taping and continued the beating.

Patrick Lindsay, Victoria Lindsay’s father, said during a news conference, “When I saw my daughter in the emergency room, I didn’t even recognize my own daughter.”

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said, “They lured her into the home for the express purpose of filming the attack and posting it on the Internet. This is outrageous behavior.”

It is being reported by the media that the motivation for the attack was retaliation for things Lindsay posted about the other girls on her MySpace page. However, the page had virtually nothing posted on it on 4/13/2008.

The attack and the video taping of the attack is taking cyber bullying to a new level.

The battery and false imprisonment charges could result in a 10 year sentence, while the kidnapping charge could add another 15 years in prison.

More Videos of Abuse by US Soldiers in Iraq

The David Mortari video showing a US Marine in Iraq callously throwing a puppy off of a cliff to its death has shone a bright light on the poor state of US public relations in the war zone of Iraq.

Below is a video of three separate incidents involving US soldiers in Iraq and their interactions with Iraqi civilians. In each incident, the way the US soldiers handled the situation was far from diplomatic.

Some Blogger and Youtube videos have been slow to start lately even on a high speed connection. Sometimes you muct click the start button twice. Please be patient; the video will begin eventually.

In the first incident in which a soldier shoots an Iraqi dog, the shooting was probably unnecessary, but an occupying army can do pretty much whatever it wants. Who is going to tell it otherwise? Certainly not the civilian who was the victim in the incident.

Perhaps soldiers have standing orders to shoot dogs because the fear is that the dog may be booby trapped with some type of bomb. That is a very strong possibility.

The IED (improvised explosive device) is the most feared weapon by US personnel in Iraq because Al Qaida has used it extensively with considerable creativity.

In the second incident in which the car is crushed, the US patrol of vehicles does not stop. This again is probably the result of fear of a suicide bomber.


But what if the tank had crushed the occupants of the car? Would it stop then?

Did you notice that the traffic seemed to automatically yield for the American vehicles? Give the Americans the right of way is probably the rule of law in Iraq.

In the third incident the US motivation is conclusive. At first it appears that the soldiers killed a few sheep for the fun of it (if you can call that fun). However, a military man informs us that the soldiers tossed a flash-bang rather than a real grenade. A flash-bang is a non-lethal explosive device designed to momentarily shock those around it.

Assuming that the soldiers tossed a flash-bang and not a real grenade, the incident is really more of a prank than anything else. However, the Iraqi sheperd will likely remember the incident with strong negative feelings. Wouldn’t you?

In every incident the Iraqis accepted the results without complaint, and that is probably because they feared that a complaint might elicit a more severe reprisal.

How do you think each incident will be remembered by the civilians involved? I know how I would feel. They will most likely hate the Americans, if they don’t already.

Soldiers like David Mortari are eliminating what little respect Americans have left in that part of the world, and they are replacing it with hatred.

Thatta boy, Mortari.
