I won't fear thee

Posted on Mon, Aug 16, 2010 at 3:06 PM

Last night I heard someone screaming for help, I ran outside of my north end Darmouth apartment to see one girl on the ground getting beaten by 10-14 other girls - they were all younger.

I ran up and yelled at them to stop and tried to break it up, there was a man trying to pull the girl getting beat away from the mob, and the aggressors all started running away.

When I turned around and saw all the faces in the windows and grown men standing at the edge of their driveways watching the commotion I was disgusted, I was petrified running up there, it was a very scary situation to put yourself into when you don't know whats happening but they could have beat that girl to death and it wouldn't have been so scary if everyone who was peeking through there curtains went outside and stood together as a community, these CHILDREN wouldn't have so much free reign over this nieghbourhood.

Does another person need to be senselessly murdered here because people are just to afraid to scream at a kid, that's all they are, out of control children.

If I see someone else getting attacked, I will not be afraid to interject again. If I have to take a punch in the face next time or the gang swarms me, the bruises wont hurt as bad as knowing I peeked out the window while someone got beat to death in front of my house. Hopes someone breaks it up with me
