It’s a video where you don’t want to look, and yet you shouldn’t look away. This is where we are in 2020 — and not just because of the violence in the video. It all began with a video that surfaced on social media this week. The violent incident took place recently at the Thomas Terry apartments in Brooklyn, Illinois. According to published reports, the video showed three teens attacking a woman outside her home. This was ugly and dispiriting enough. That wasn’t the worst of it, though: The woman was with her 4-year-old toddler. In the video, two teens can be seen punching and kicking the victim; her baby girl clearly can be heard crying and tries to hold on to her mother’s leg.
