The Smoking Gun managed to capture a video of a gang beat-down on the A Train in Brooklyn, which was posted on YouTube last week and since deleted. The video shows a group of kids harrassing an older, 30-something male on the subway. After a couple minutes, and as the fight escalates, a few more males come into the scene and take up spots kinda surrounding the victim as one of the girls continues yelling at him. The video ends with about 5 of the kids kicking and punching the 30 year old to the ground.
"As members of the group inched closer--and threatened to strike him--the man remained calm, asking the girls, "Why are you arguing? Please stop, stop." As the train pulled into Broadway Junction, a girl off-camera could be heard predicting, "They gonna hit him, I know it." Within moments, the man, who had stood up, was shoved down and pummeled by members of the gang. As the tape ends, the victim--who was also struck in the face with a plastic soda bottle during the assault--is continuing to be struck by two of the girls."The filmmaker, high-school student Kadejra Holmes denies taking part in the fight, but has since deleted both the video and her account from YouTube. She had originally named the video, "jump up to get down", a reference to the single/video by Brand Nubian which features the rap group beating the crap out of a couple of unfortunate souls on the subway.
