My only question - why are the charges misdemeanor battery. This should be felony battery... Are they waiting to file more charges or something?

Didn't look so tough to me crying in front of the judge. If I were the judge I would have made them all lift their heads up high and look into the camera so they could be seen - none of this nonsense hiding behind their hair with their heads down. Didn't have a problem being seen in front of the camera when they were issuing the beating.

I hope they all get what they deserve and that is a lot of time in jail thinking about what idiots they were. May other high school bullies learn from this and the actions of these stupid girls.

Which one of those little nasty trailer trash chicks is the one in the pink pants administering the beating? I'd like to meet her.

"The woman told the operator that the girls who attacked Lindsay are neighborhood bullies.

"My daughter herself has had trouble with these same girls," she told the 911 operator. "They tried to run her off the road and everything. I do know these girls. They're toughies around town."

Lets hope they get a judge who's a toughie and a bully and sentences them to spend the rest of their useless, worthless lives in a tough prison.

It said on there that "two girls left who were on probation?" Who were they? Were they involved in the beating? Or had they just been on hand and left the scene when things got hot?

Also, it sounds like this whole group of girls were bullies, including the victim. I read elsewhere on the net that a mother had come forward and said that Victoria Lindsey had bullied her daughter so badly that she had to be taken out of school, can anyone link me to this story?

And one more thing. When you look at all of the girls the one thing that really stands out is that Mercades really doesnt belong. Did Tori befriend someone like Mercades during a troubled time just to have her sell her out to be one of the cool girls?

They are actually pieces of garbage that don't deserve the same freedoms as everyone else. Their parents should be prosecuted as well for raising such low life pieces of crap that will be sucking and draining our hard earned tax dollars for the remainder of their pathetic lives. How you think I really feel about these loser brats????

I agree Penny. They deserve alot more punishment then they will ever get. What kind of parents raised these girls? It's such ashame. Makes me worry about my little ones and the kind of kids they go to school with.

Send these little brats away for a long time. These days someone needs to make an example of some punks who think they can do whatever they want to whoever they want.

I love how the news they say "alledged attackers". Alleged? The morons videotapes and showed themselves to the world pounding the poor girl. Do we really need to put the word "alleged" in the conversation?

Last night on Nancy Grace they said that was Britney Hardcastle.

My original post in this thread is missing. What is up with that?

Young and stupid. They don't realize how this will follow them around for a long, long time. Each one of them will always be known as 'the one' that did this vicious beating. It will affect their relationships and may be even job opportunities. They wanted publicity, well they sure got it.
