Woman Charged For Brutal Beating Caught On Tape

Police charged a female McDonald’s employee for the vicious beating of a New Jersey woman whose two-year-old small son tried to stop the attack, a video of which went viral this week.
Latia Harris, 25, has been named in a criminal complaint accusing her of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats, according to a court filing. The brutal attack occurred Tuesday evening in an open field behind a McDonald’s in Salem, a southwestern New Jersey city.
Harris, pictured in the above driver’s license photo, was wearing her McDonald’s uniform as she punched, kicked, and spat on the 27-year-old victim, who was “covered in blood” when emergency service workers arrived at the scene (she was subsequently transported to a local hospital for treatment).

As seen on the video, during the assault Harris threatened to kick the victim’s son in the face. As his mother was being beaten, the boy kicked Harris several times in the leg. At the conclusion of the assault, Harris “spat on the victim and walked away asking those recording the incident not to post it on social media,” according to a police statement.

The complaint alleges that Harris also threatened to shoot the victim “while punching her about the face.

Harris, who remains at large, has not reported to work since the June 24 incident. When she is apprehended, Harris will be booked into jail on the three felony counts, the bail for which has already been set at $35,000.

Woman beaten in front of her kid. Suspect at large.

After footage of a woman being attacked in front of a toddler surfaced on Facebook this week, police in New Jersey began searching for the female assailant who delivered the brutal beatdown.
Latia Harris, a 25-year-old McDonald’s worker, was named in a criminal complaint released Thursday that accused her of the aggravated assault depicted in the video, according to The Smoking Gun. Police in the city of Salem are currently searching for the suspect.
In the disturbing video, which has since been widely circulated on the Web, a woman is seen brutally beating another woman in front of a toddler and a group of bystanders. The young boy yells for his mother and kicks the attacker as she continues to hit, kick and spit on the victim. At one point, the assailant also threatens to kick the child in the face.

Police in this county deal with this type of violence everyday. Yet, this video is physically sickening to watch,” Salem Police Chief John J. Pelura III said in a released statement.

When emergency services arrived at the scene, they discovered a woman lying on the ground, covered in blood. WPVI identified the victim as 27-year-old Catherine Ferreira, mother of a 2-year-old boy. Ferreira told the outlet that she suffered a mild concussion and broken nose in the assault.

After the victim was treated at a local hospital, she told authorities that a McDonald’s worker named “Tia” attacked her and “accused her of spreading rumors about her and her manager,” the South Jersey Times reports.

Police Chief Pelura rebuked witnesses for not taking action.

There is a moral and social breakdown in the fabric of our society which is clearly evident when a woman gets pummeled in broad daylight in front of her child while a dozen people pull out their phones to record the incident instead of calling for help,” he said in the statement. “There is so little regard for human life – by the actor and the bystanders.

Police say Harris has not reported to work since the June 24 incident. If apprehended, she faces three felony charges – one count of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats. Her bail has already been set at $35,000.

Am trecut Bacul! Cu avionul, cum altfel?

planePe vremea când dădeam eu Bacalaureatul, în 1999, elevii încă mai învățau. Nu pe rupte, dar măcar de un 5 amărât, tot se învăța. M-am tot uita anii ăștia la TV în preajma Bacalaureatului și m-am crucit. Există școli cu rata de promovabilitate 0%! Nici ăia din lumea a treia, de-i bâzâie muștele nu-s așa catastrofali.
Și cu ocazia Perlelor de la BAC (da, an de an mass-media și-a făcut obicei din a difuza așa-zisele “perle” ale elevilor), mi-am adus aminte o “perlă” de m-a salvat la engleză.
Nu-i vorba că nu știam, doamne ferește, însă începusă să-mi pună întrebări despre avioane, zbor și alte alea. Eu, care la vremea aceea nu văzusem niciodată un avion aproape de mine. Ce vedeam la TV erau filme americane!
Și-am stat și m-am gândit despre ce să vorbesc. Profesoarele (erau două) se cam plictisiseră de momentele astea de liniște mormântală (nici ăăăăă nu-mi ieșea, trebuia să bălmăjesc ceva în engleză). Și mi-am amintit cum plecase vărul meu în vizită în Italia în urmă cu vreo 5 ani. S-a urcat în avion și tot drumul dus dormise. La întoarcere nu i-a mai priit așa bine, deoarece dăduse de niște goluri de aer de făcea avionul ca acceleratul. Și-n aer, nu prea-ți arde de glumit cu treburi d-astea.
Și-mi spuse el atunci că primul gând pe care l-a avut când a coborât din avion, pe aeroport, a fost să viziteze o toaletă.
– Ca să dau afară toate alunele alea vere! Mâncase 3-4 pungi de alune, ca să-mi treacă frica, vorba vine. Și nu-ți spun că mi s-a întors? Dar mi-era frică să mă mișc de pe scaun?

Așa că, la Bacalaureat, mi-am dres glasul și-am început:
– Peanuts!
– What?
– Peanuts! Don’t eve think of eating peanust on flight!
– Why? they asked.
– Because that will get you sick. My cousin had an accident a while ago, after eating some nuts on the plane, and he throw up in there. And they can’t open a window, on a plane, you know?

Și-au râs. Au râs profele de mi-au pus nota 9 și mi-au urat sănătate. Nota 9 era cea mai mare atunci. Există profesori care nu dau nota 10 decât în cazuri extreme. Au fost trei note de 9 atunci la Engleză la Bacalaureat. Una dintre ele, a mea.
Și uite așa am trecut eu bacul (ferry-boat) cu… avionul!

Three years old girl “asked to leave KFC because face was scaring customers”

Victoria WilcherKFC has “launched an investigation” after claim by family that 3-year-old, who had been mauled by three pit bulls, was forced to leave one of the chain’s restaurants.
A three-year-old girl recovering from a severe pitbull attack in which she lost an eye was reportedly asked to leave a KFC restaurant because her appearance was “scaring other customers”.
The family of Victoria Wilcher made their complaint public through a post on the ‘Victoria’s Victories’ Facebook page, which was set up to chronicle the youngster’s recovery.
Does this face look scary to you?” the post reads, alongside an image of Victoria.“Last week at KFC in Jackson MS this precious face was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners.

KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said the company had launched an investigation into the incident. “We take this very seriously, as we have zero tolerance for any kind of hurtful or disrespectful actions toward our guests,” he said.
Our investigation is ongoing, but we have been in touch with the family and are committed to doing something appropriate for this beautiful little girl and her family.” The company also responded directly through Facebook with a comment underneath the family’s post.
Victoria, from Mississippi, was savagely attacked by three pit bulls which dragged her from her grandfather’s trailer in April.
As well as losing an eye, her upper and lower jaw, nose and cheek bones were broken in the attack, her family said in a Facebook post. As a result she has lost the ability to move the right side of her face.

Micutii devin din ce in ce mai curiosi, incep sa prinda orice obiect si sa-l guste, de aceea este nevoie de atentie sporita pentru a evita posibile incidente, cum ar fi inghitirea de mici piese. De asemenea, atentia le este atrasa de obiectele colorate si cele care emit diferite sunete.
Pentru bebelusii cu varsta de pana la 6 luni este recomandat amenajarea unui spatiu de joaca. Puteti agata un carusel muzical in patutul acestuia si cu siguranta va fi interesat de jucariile care atarna si sunetele emise de acesta, o lunga perioada de timp.
