    Gotta love raw video like that. It only went on so long because of the fact it was mostly unedited.

    As well as everyone else, I`d love to know why he was attacked. Of course, with some on-the-scene and rookie reporters, it`s obvious.

    Dainty, Dainty:

    Apparently, they were attacking the reporter because they were upset that she was doing a newscast about their recently deceased relative.

    Still, that`s no excuse to go nuts on the reporter.

    Turns out it wasn`t the victim`s family, it was the accused`s family, and they were shouting racial slurs.

God bless the consumers of the media, and especially God bless the submitter who was under the impression that I`d be somehow pleased or amused to wake up in the morning and watch this God-awful CRAP that he submitted for my viewing.

    This is the local news in my area. I happened to catch them mentioning it last night before I went to bed. Don`t know the details though, I never watch the news...so no idea why it happened outside of what the above have said.

    the only requirements for cops are they are supposed to be able to run a mile in 7 or 8 minutes (which isnt THAT fast) and i believe they have a sprint test where they have to run a 40-yard dash in <6 sec (which any football lineman can do).

    this video was lame, didnt know WHY they were attacking, nor whom at first.

    Also, this looks like a run down ghetto/trashy area...as I`m sure it is. Plenty of those around where it happened.

    Went and looked it up.

    "McCormick said the altercation started after the family demanded that news crews leave the scene, though at the time, he said all of the news people were on the street or on public sidewalks.

    A large crowd formed quickly as the confrontation escalated, McCormick said.

    McCormick said one of the women punched WSPA reporter Charmayne Brown, who then tried to defend herself.

    He said the attack ended up with Brown on the ground being repeatedly punched by the women as her photographer, Ti Barnes, and some of those in the crowd tried to help her.

    Brown left the scene and went to the police station to file a report. McCormick said she appeared battered and bruised, but was not bleeding.

    Two of the women who were charged are related to the man who has been charged in the death that police were investigating."

    Hey WNLD: Guess what... you didn`t have to actually watch the clip after reading the description, or are you one of those people that blame everyone else for their problems.

    BTW... The people attacking are from S. Carolina, looks to be in the country somewhere, and are definetly super racist. The one in the red was attacking with so much hate it was uncanny.

    "They needed four police cars for that?"

    They most likely all responded because they were on patrol in the area at the time. Plus, it was a large group involved in the altercation so multiple cops are needed to secure the situation and multiple cars are needed for multiple arrests. Police don`t know exactly what they are walking in to until they get there, so better not to have to confront what could have escalated into a brawl with 1 or 2 cops.

    "wow, that was the biggest cop I`ve ever seen."

    Everyone assumes he`s fat, but he could just be a big guy. Just look at some football players - fata*ses and strong as all hell. Who would you rather have beat you down, thin and fit cop or massive tank-like cop. I`d choose the former.

    "Who would you rather have beat you down, thin and fit cop or massive tank-like cop. I`d choose the former."

    If it was who I would rather take an unavoidable hit from, the first one. If I had the slightest chance of escape and then running (or even walking quickly) away, the latter. By far.

    If you really think about it America is one of the worst 1st world countries to live in, in the world.

    - Too much violence

    - Too much poverty

    - Too many sick people

    - Too big an ego

    - Too much taxes

    - Not enough Schools

    - Not enough affordable housing

    - Not enough socialized medicine

    *suspicious face* fancylad... did you steal mah linky? XD Well, I`m half serious, anyways.

    And they haven`t said much in the way of why she was attacked, just that she was investigating a murder and all the sudden 4 people gang up on her. (Yes 4, they arrested the other guy today.) And WYFF 4 just filmed it. They didn`t try to help her. Way to go. BTW, 4`s slogan is "We`re Your Friend Four". They weren`t very friendly to Charmayne, were they?

    Addition to above comment: They won`t charge them with lynching, because "it wasn`t premeditated". My ass, it wasn`t. It was 4 white people on one black person. And Charmayne is a sweet woman- she wouldn`t hurt anyone. When a plant blew up behind my nieghborhood, forcing us to evacuate, she was actually very courteous about the interview, unlike big city reporters who shove everything in your face and demand every detail. And since it was a murder investigation, I`d like to know if the killer is on the loose or not. He might come to kill ME. (In my grandma`s neighborhood , I wouldn`t doubt it.) FTR, not all people from SC are racist. I grew up with nothing but black people in my neighborhood, and we all got along. So no stigmas, plz. XD

    A reply to OWEN402005 and his ignorance:
    Why CANADA sucks:
    -Round bacon

    -Dumb accents

    -Quebec

    -Socialized medicine(why do 25 ambulances cross from Windsor to Detroit every week?)

    -If Canada is so much better than the U.S., why does 90% of the population live within 100 miles of the U.S. border?

    -Not enough schools in the U.S.?!? Check your numbers, dummy. We educate more foreigners in our colleges than any other country in the world.

    -We may have more gun-related deaths, but Canada rules the world in Drunk Driving.

    -You can judge a country by how many people are trying to get in and by how many are not leaving. Don`t see many that try to sneak into Canada and if they fly in, they`re only trying to get to the U.S.

    So OWEN402005, when you wanna visit the U.S. again make sure and badmouth the U.S. to customs, I`m sur ethey`d love to hear your ignorant thoughts.

    "-If Canada is so much better than the U.S., why does 90% of the population live within 100 miles of the U.S. border?"

    Because that is where most of the major cities were founded hundreds of years ago.

    "-Socialized medicine(why do 25 ambulances cross from Windsor to Detroit every week?)"

    Probably because they are Americans in the ambulance.

    "-We may have more gun-related deaths, but Canada rules the world in Drunk Driving."

    Yes but in Canada is a drunk driver accidentally rams our fender we don`t grab our gun from under the seat and blow the drivers head off. That is what probably turns a lot of drunk driving cases in America into murder cases.


    "-Round bacon"

    You got us there. The security of our country is clearly based on the shape of our pork products.

    -Not enough schools in the U.S.?!? Check your numbers, dummy. We educate more foreigners in our colleges than any other country in the world.
