On Tuesday, a young New Jersey mother named Catherine Ferreira was savagely attacked in a McDonald’s. Now she’s publicly wondering why no one tried to help her, and why bystanders whipped out cell phones and started filming instead.
Ferreira suffered a broken nose, two black eyes and a mild concussion.
Latia Harris, 25, was captured on video throwing the petite woman to the ground like a rag doll and repeatedly punching her in the face.
The video of the brutal beating has gone viral and sparked a widespread outrage, since none of the bystanders seen in the footage came to Ferreira’s aid as she was being brutalized by the much larger woman; instead, they looked on with their cell phone cameras trained on the brawl.
Apparently, the only real man in the room was Ferreira’s 2-year-old son, who threw himself on Harris. The only good to come out of the videos was that they helped identify the attacker.
