MEMPHIS, Tenn. — At least three people were beaten by a group of teenagers Saturday night in the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store in Memphis.

The violence was caught on video by a store employee.

According to WREG, a 25-year-old man said he was attacked by the group of teens as he walked to his car. Two Kroger employees, ages 17 and 18, ran to help the man, but they were apparently repeatedly hit in the head and face.

The Kroger employees claimed that pumpkins in excess of 20 pounds were thrown at their heads while they were on the ground. That can be seen in the video.

Both of the Kroger employees lost consciousness as a result of the attack, WREG reported. Eventually, a security guard stepped in.

The motivation for the attack was not immediately known.

    “The motivation for the attack was not immediately known.”

    Of course it is and it’s about time we fight back. Arm yourselves and put these animals down. Can anyone with a straight face tell me that any of these kids are or will be productive members of society? What is their purpose, to make private prison owners rich? Put them down like the animals they are.

    This video has only just got to news? I saw on Facebook 2 days ago..a female onlooker took the video and was laughing whole they kicked ‘the white dude’…imo she should be ‘helping’ police with enquiries to watch, laugh and do nothing. Disgusting. I lived in Memphis for 8 yrs and never saw anything like this.

    I live near and shop at the grocery store where this took place. I can assure you that at 9:00 on Saturday night very, very few whites would be found in this center. The white 25 yr old victim said in an interview with local channel 5, that he was new to the area and did not know it was dangerous for him to be there that time of night. It’s actually a nice area in the day and a couple blocks from University of Memphis. The all black mob must have just happened to target the only two white people in the parking lot? Yea right. Yes one, one, black teen even bothered to try to help the whites. That one black teen worked at the store with the white stock boy that was beaten unconscious acted as a hero. The others in the black mob are sorry black racist. Not every white is a racist nor is every black. After living here and for a time in Denver, I can tell you that you do not understand the hatred to whites in Memphis until Many openly do not like you because you are white. My wife and I were assaulted by one of these black mobs several years ago near historic Beale St late at night, I will spill you the horrid racist remarks they said to us, especially to my wife while showing a gun. Very sad.

    The motivation for the attack was not immediately known? Not known only to liberal media reporters who rush to convict a police officer in Missouri before a trial, but refuse to give an honest appraisal for something that happens in front of their own eyes.

    This video is the perfect reply to the question: “Why do white people in Memphis still use “the n word?”

    The news summary omitted the race of the attackers and victims. Did they do the same when reporting on Michael Brown’s death?

    Motivation? Pure sport. This is most definitely a Hate Crime. Black on white hate crimes are one of the nations biggest threats and they need to be prosecuted as Hate Crimes. The media is not reporting this like they would if it were anything happening to a black person. White people, you had better start to demand this by prosecutors and the media. Boycott CNN for underreporting of these crimes and over reporting anything that happens to a black. If not gotten in check, a race war is certainly coming. I just changed my voter reg. from Dem to Rep because I am so sickened by this Admin. Holder in particular.
