Last weekend, I watched a video that showed about 6 1/2 minutes of violence in Tampa, FL. I was really disturbed by this video. Judging by the comments of the woman making the video (?from her iPhone or Android phone?) this was avidly watched by onlookers as they jostled each other to get a good vantage point to watch. I saw two groups of young men beat down (separately) one person. Then, as if this were not enough, another group of youths targeted a guy inside his parked car. He had locked the doors, etc. and was not about to get out of his car. The group jumped on his car, surrounded it and beat on it as if they were trying to tear it apart to get at him. Suddenly, gunshots were fired. The youths on and around the car scattered. And some onlookers must have called 911 right away because in a few seconds there were multiple sirens of police cars headed that way. In moments people got to their cars and were bugging out. During one of the beat downs, a young mother, with a child on her hip was one of the onlookers trying to get a better vantage point. So, here is my question: Is this evidence of a dramatic ramping up of violence in general or is this just an isolated example of stuff that has been going on all along--and I am just getting clued into it now???
