This actually happened last month, but the NY Post is running with the story today. It may be that the Philadelphia PD is just now releasing the photos because the perps are still at large

The victim, James Lambert



quote:

A group of deranged teenagers were caught on camera laughing and taking videos as they beat an elderly man to death with a traffic cone in Philadelphia last month, according to police.

James Lambert, 72, was viscously attacked by a group of seven teens just after 3 a.m. on June 14 as he was walking across Cecil B. Moore Avenue, police told NBC10.

Disturbing video of the incident, released by police on Friday, shows Lambert trying to walk away from the group as they follow him across the street before one of the male assailants strikes the victim from behind with a cone.

The impact knocked Lambert to the ground. While he was down, a girl picks up the same cone and chucks it at him as another one in the group records on his phone, the video shows.

Lambert appears to get up and flee down the sidewalk away from his attackers. But the same girl picks up the cone again, chases down Lambert and throws it at him once more while some of the teens smile and laugh.

Lambert was taken to a local hospital where he died the following day from his injuries, police said.

Footage shows the group leaving the scene, including a boy smiling as he pedals away on a scooter with another boy.

None of the teenagers have been arrested as of Friday. The Philadelphia Police Department is offering a $20,000 reward lead them to those responsible.

Bump, they caught a couple. LINK

quote:

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Sources close to the investigation tell CBS3 a 14-year-old boy is being processed on charges of third-degree murder and conspiracy in connection to the brutal beating of a 73-year-old man that was captured on camera in North Philadelphia. James Lambert later died from his injuries. Eyewitness News cameras were there at Philadelphia police headquarters as two young brothers — ages 10 and 14 — turned themselves in to authorities around 4 p.m Monday. The 10-year-old has since been released, sources say.

The disregard for human life in these more and more common instances is sickening.

Philly is such a fricking cesspool. Remember last year when a woman was publicly raped on the Philly transit system and everyone stood around and did nothing while it was recorded. Disgusting people, worse than Detroit.

If I had to guess, he probably told them something they needed to hear years ago and because they have never been told what he probably said, in their simple fricking mind they couldn't let nobody talk to them that way..

They should be found, put in a room and beat to death with a traffic cone. Bonus points if authorities can locate the exact traffic cone.

A lot of big city district attorneys want this. They’re trying to stoke a fire.

Their dads are going to be so pissed.


In all seriousness, where is BLM? Where are the national leaders in the Black community calling this out? If a cop did this you would be forced to care.

I’ll live in the middle of nowhere before I live in a congested inner city where police are overworked.
Suburbs and guns are where it is.

I once saw him win a game of one-on-one using only his left hand. And wait for it - get this - with his right hand, he was eating a ham sandwich

Five rounds to put them all down. If they want to act that way, they should be treated that way. There's no rehabilitating that.
