A cheerleader and her friends in Lakeland, Florida beat up a fellow student after seeing an alleged 'trash talking' MySpace post.
The Polk County Sheriff's office have released the video of the teenager being beaten. According to Sheriff Grady Judd, the 16 year-old teen was beat unconscious in a bedroom and then later awoke on a couch in the living room to more beating and screaming. The fight happened on March 30th at 6124 West Calendar Court in Lakeland.
"When they were in a holding cell, they were all laughing," Judd stated. "One of the teens arrested, who is a cheerleader, asked, 'Does this mean I'm going to miss cheerleading practice tomorrow?' The others were cutting up and said, 'It looks like we won't be going to the beach this weekend.'"
"That is animalistic behavior. It's pack mentality. They lured her there to beat her," added Sheriff Judd.

This was a disgustingly brutal and premeditated attack on a girl that didn't fight back! These girls lured the victim to the house, then launched an unprovoked assault. They knocked her unconcious, when she awoke and tried to leave they prevented her. Isn't that false imprisonment? They could even face a charge of attempted murder. I hope the Judge throws the book at them!
