Victoria Lindsay Teen Gang Beating Victim 2nd Video Released May 2008

The Polk County, Florida, Sheriff’s office released a second video in the teen gang beating of the Mulberry High School cheerleader, Victoria Lindsay. We have posted a copy of the beating here.


Lindsay, who was 16 at the time of the beating March 30th, suffered a concussion along with hearing and vision loss from the attack. The Sheriff’s office has said that the most vicious part of the beating was not filmed. See the first video.

The eight teen age classmates of Victoria had planned to place the video of the beating on MySpace and YouTube in retaliation for Victoria saying some unpleasant remarks about them on her MySpace page.

The second video shows April Cooper, 14, one of the alleged attackers, and Victoria arguing in a bedroom of the home of Mary Nichols, the grandmother of Mercades Nichols, 17, another one of the alleged attackers. Mercades had invited Victoria to live with her and her parents after Victoria felt uncomfortable living with her father and step-mother.

After the argument in the bedroom escalated, April Cooper allegedly appeared to begin punching Victoria in the face, pushed her onto a bed and continued punching her.

The Sheriff’s office also released several photos of Victoria after the attack, and the photos clearly showed blackened eyes and numerous other marks on Victoria’s face, arms and legs.

Mary Nichols, Mercades Nichols’ grandmother, told police detectives that she was shocked when she saw the video. "I was shocked that she (Mercades) didn't intervene and say, 'Hey, enough is enough," Mary Nichols said.

"You know you hit her once, that's it. Let her go."

"I don't care what anybody does. Nobody deserves to be beat like that," Mary Nichols told investigators.

The grandmother also said she knows that her granddaughter has anger issues, but she has also shown a compassionate side by helping stray dogs and rabbits.

The video that was released by the Sheriff's office had about one minute and 35 seconds in the middle that was almost totally black. We have enhanced that section the best that we could. The Sheriff's office also inserted beeps over the many expletives in the video.

Wow, anonymous. So, I guess every whore deserves to get beaten? Well, then I suppose the next time you have sex with someone you barely know, you'll deserve to get your skull beat in. That is absolutely disgusting. What kind of white trash, dumb, stupid girls do things like that? Well, from the looks of it, the kind that are going to get what they deserve from a 40 year old, 250 pound, murderer in jail when they mouth off behind bars.

Oh, and kudos to being so brilliant. Really. Your choice of words, "She was a whore", is about as cliche as being anonymous. But it's obvious you're not that bright or you might have come up with something better.

Victoria rules! I like that girl and I hope the incident made her stronger.

And I think that the Sheriff's office beeped over not only profanities but also some key words of the conversation.

Who gives a shit if she slept with 100 men, no one bashes a guy if he sleeps with 100 women, instead he is made to feel proud.

People, especially women, you need to stop putting down women for their own sexual preference, it's disgusting that society condones what they believe to be justified just cause a girl is seen as a "whore" Take a fucken reality check, we're humans, sex is natural and normal. These girls who did the bashing are a perfect example of brain washing the media, society, religion and culture control that is put on young people.

Grow brains, think for yourself and stop judging people.

I think those six girls wish they were alot more like Victoria...otherwise why would it mean so much to them if Victoria is a whore or not????

The best thing about our human race is that we are all made in different beautiful ways!!! Some people are more sexual than others....just like how these 8 people are more STUPID than others.

much love to my girl Victoria...I dont know you but best wishes to you...continue to live your life the way you want and in a way you think is best for you and your future....brush off the HATERS and take care of you and your own!!!

Charges dropped due to insufficient evidence? If a video of a beating doesn't count as evidence, I don't know what more they would need. Those bitches got away with it. I wish there was a camera rolling when karma comes a knockin!

I agree with 7-12-12, 7-23-11, 9-6-09, 5-26-09, 2-16-09, 11-14-08, 08-11-08,..

I agree with these people because there is no excuse for what they did they should have crucified in court and gave the max. sentence.

Now had it been interracial or black kids they would have showed no compassion or lenancy and spared no expense to put them in jail or go to trial and trialed them as adults. I was in high school like eight years ago b4 MySpace was even out nd I said not wrote whatever I wanted to bad or good if it was a problem you could say what you want to or let it go..but all in all at the end of the day it was messed up nd i hope GOD makes yall suffer till the end of ur days nd bad lucc follows u for the rest of ur life..
P.S. My momma would have made sure y'all got put under the jail..ONE ON ONE ALL DAY WE KEEP IT 100 IN CALI..
