VIDEO: Mob of Black Teens In Tennessee Beat Two White Grocery Employees

(Memphis, TN) CBS affiliate WREG reported over the weekend that three people are now recovering after an out of control mob of teenagers ran through a busy grocery shopping plaza, and beat customers and Kroger employees at will.

The raw video of the incident above has been shared with local news stations in the area and is quickly going viral on the internet. The video of the attack shows a young adult lying still on the ground as others repeatedly kick him and stomp his head. Other victims are seen being chased or knocked to the ground. 

Memphis Police Department Director Toney Armstrong released the following official statement Sunday morning, making no mention of a possible hate crime.

"We are fully aware of the last night's incidents. It is extremely troubling to see how many young people were involved, especially on the heels of last week's youth forum. A lot of our citizens are working to provide safe and productive alternatives for our youth. For those that choose not to take advantage of these opportunities, we will work tirelessly to identify, locate and hold you accountable. Last night's events clearly demonstrates a lack of parental controls and if warranted these parents will also be held accountable."

 

It's being reported that the attack happened at the corner of Poplar Avenue and Highland Street in Memphis, Tennessee. As of Monday morning one juvenile has been arrested in connection with the attack. More details to come as they are available...
