No it's the economy. These poor oppressed young men feel hopeless due to social constructs that are preventing them from reaching their potential. And the natural and logical response to poverty is to go out and beat up disabled people.

Sarcasm. Nice.

I've been temporarily incapacitated before(in a cast and on crutches) and this is when 2 kids decided to hurt me. Middle class kids too. And this happened in a classroom.

Its videos like these that convince me everyone should carry a firearm for protection. I would have loved to have those guys try to corner me while I was packing heat. I'd of blown there knee caps off and handed them my cruch.

If this had not been videotaped, few people would know about it. Bullying and abuse have gone on for ages. The question today is, "why would you videotape yourself doing it"?

I don't think this is "thug life". Maybe it's because I've never seen this on video before, but this behavior is embarrassing, and disturbing. Why this is happening, I don't know why. It has to be more than just thug life.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that those thugs videotaped themselves taunting and hurted a mentally handicapped person. When some Russian Neo-Nazis murdered and decapitated a person of Dagestani descent(by the way "Dagestan is technically part of Russia), they videotaped and put on the web for all to see. I even saw the beheading for myself and I couldn't watch it after a few seconds. If sick people like that will post violent things like a beheading, then those thugs here in the USA would definitely post videos of themselves harassing a mentally handicapped person. I think for me, the video of those thugs taunting a mentally handicapped person embarrassed me because those fools happen to be of the same ethnicity as me. I felt like this would reflect badly on other Black people.
