Two charged after videotaping assault of woman at bus stop

http://www.kare11.com/article/news/2...p/89-526965537

MINNEAPOLIS - Two men are charged after an "appalling" video was posted to Facebook, depicting an "elderly" woman being assaulted, groped and robbed at a Minneapolis bus station, police say.

According to the criminal complaint, Wesley Norman Martin, 21, and Deondre R. Jackson, 20, approached the victim on Feb. 12, while she was sitting on a bench in the Chicago-Lake Transit Shelter.

The complaint states surveillance video shows the suspects yelling at the victim and shoving her down after she repeatedly tries to leave. Authorities say Martin can be seen taking a liquor bottle from inside the victim's jacket then begins rubbing her stomach, bottom and thighs.

The victim can be seen trying to escape multiple times but Martin and Jackson prevent her from leaving, holding her in place, according to the charges.

Jackson can be seen hovering over the woman filming with his cell phone as Martin pulls her backwards into the shelter and throws her to the ground.

Charges say Martin then held the victim on the ground and groped her while Jackson moves closer to record a close-up of her face.

An unidentified female accomplice then rips the jacket off the victim, while she's in the fetal position on the floor. At this point, Jackson continues to record the incident on his phone as Martin and the female accomplice accost the woman, the complaint states.

Jackson can be heard on the video yelling racial epithets about the woman, saying "that lady like a hundred years old!"

The victim could be heard saying "help me" in the video, but many people in the shelter are seen doing nothing.

At one point, an older man in the shelter pushes Martin away from the victim and a fight ensues. Martin kicks and punches the older man in the face and he can be seen "staggering from the blow."

The female accomplice holds the elderly woman on the ground and can be seen ripping her shirt from her body, eventually tearing it off completely. The woman attempts to get her shirt back but the female accomplice rips it away and leaves the transit center with it.

Jackson and Martin are charged with first-degree aggravated robbery. Both were already in custody on probation violations. Martin was convicted of third-degree assault on Feb. 7 and Jackson has previous convictions of aggravated robbery and terroristic threats from Jan. 11, 2016

Was looking for a word to describe, but even ‘depravity’ doesn’t adequately describe this behavior.

How long do you think till they actually show up? That should always be step 1 to cover your ass, if you can. But I wouldn't be waiting for the cops to show up while someone is beaten unconscious or to death.

Neither would I, but nobody mentioned it at all. Get help on the way and do what you have to do to stop the attack. Probably just somebody yelling at these idiots that they called 911 would’ve been enough.

You're old, you remember the 90's! They took the phone booths away then and now people can't call for help anymore!

I agree, verbal commands first. They clearly attacked someone defenseless and the "older man" attempting to help wasn't going to get too far.

Agreed and then if that doesn’t work up the force continuum it is.

Sigh.

The world is filled with depravity.
Yes I would have been happy to intervene though it is a situation that requires care and caution.
And no, I wouldn't dare draw a concealed pistol without being able to have a clear, defendable state of mind that it was required or else someone would die--that mortal threat was apparent. When faced with one to three attackers, I would actually prefer to take them on without a firearm. I have trained for it. But if it escalates, then so be it. Most perpetrators of such crimes are drugged out cowards, and when faced with a real threat, they will back down.

Crime is at historic lows in the US, particularly in the major cities.

Tell that to the lady who just got savagely beaten.

No one here is debating crime rates. Whether it is at a "historic low" or not has not been questioned.

I will restate the first sentence in my previous post to say that human beings have as part of their nature a tendency towards doing things that are selfish and destructive. Not 100% of the time, but yes, human beings do bad things. Regardless of crime statistics; we all do bad things at one time or another in our lives.

Some people live in a world with no moral absolutes, meaning that they are the ultimate judge of right and wrong. So for them, if they think it is OK for them to do it, then no one else is in a position to judge them. I would bet that the perpetrators of violence of the OP were acting based on this type of world view.

The story in the original post was crazy, but then there is the following story that is pretty cool - I understand how this story got promoted - but think how great it would be if colleges seeked out high-school age kids that perform their jobs exceedingly well and offered scholarships.

That's a great idea! Epic!

It's always great to help others, but when you yourself need help you never forget the person who did it for you.

My son had his tonsils taken out when he was 8 months old (he has microtia which in his case means his airways also needed a bit of help) and had just passed the 10 kg mark for anesthesia. I was absolutely terrified for him even for a thing that small. When he was put under I went to the hospital park, and I think I looked so miserable a taxi driver on duty ditched his car and came to talk to me. He let me cry to his shoulder for the hour they didn't let me to my son.

A friend of mine traced him later and now all of us exclusively use his services. It isn't much but the man helped a stranger for nothing and we all should do that more often.
