When we post restaurant brawl videos, many times the tone centers around disbelief mixed with uneasy chuckles. What you're about to see might result in audible screams, gasps, and expletives. Warning, it's disturbing.
The details on the following attack are fuzzy.* What you see is two woman mercilessly attacking another in a McDonald's. But that doesn't really do the video justice. The two women repeatedly punch and kick the woman in the head while she lies in the fetal position on the ground. They then drag her across the floor by her hair near the door, where they continue the beating. All the while, the employees stand by laughing (although one seems to give a half-hearted vocal attempt to stop the madness, and another eventually tries to step in).
Eventually, it appears the woman is beaten so badly she has a seizure.
According to a description from the video site LiveLeak, the person filming the incident coaches the attackers to flee:
The two black females exit, then re-enter the store to continue the beating, until an older white woman attempts to stop them from dragging the white victim outside into the parking lot. note: the black male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack.
At the end, the white victim is beaten until she has a seizure, at which point the camera operator warns the black female attackers to flee, because the police are on the way. Note: he makes sure to repeatedly tell the criminal attackers to flee, instead of keeping them there for the police to apprehend.
Here is the video. Again, it's enraging and disturbing [Content Warning for violence and language]:
