A shocking video of a Murfreesboro, Tennessee, high school student stomping and brutally beating another student went viral (video below).
In the clip, 18-year-old Mickal Ladd can be seen stomping on a student’s head and beating him brutally just moments after the school bus arrived at Riverdale High School in January of 2016.
The victim’s father, John, said his son was ambushed from behind and stomped on the head four times. He was then “spanked” with his own belt.
“He was kicked in the head and suffered a concussion, he does not remember the attack to this day,” John told WZTV.
Ladd pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault on January 17, 2017, for his crime.
The victim told police that he believed he was attacked because he was friends with Ladd’s girlfriend. The student was ultimately taken out of school and home-schooled after the assault.
“Riverdale High is a very violent place, I hope they can get control because this is kind of where it started,” John said. “Some of the students are afraid to talk about that because they’re intimidated by those guys.”
The story quickly went viral, with many readers calling for Ladd to be punished accordingly.
“This man needs to be beaten with in a inch of his life if he survives OK if not OK then give him 5 years or something but he needs a life changing beating over a girl the kid did not even have a chance,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“The person that was passing by didn’t even offer any help but they could have called the police if they have a heart. Maybe that was one way to get involved and not get beat up too. This is what you call a scumbag disgusting pig and I hope he gets his someday when he is in prison,” another wrote.
“I think it is time to buy a pistol to carry with me when I go any where. I sick of what has happened to our country. We have Obama and the Democrat Party to thank for what is going on. Obama organization and his liberal follower are the cause of this. On a march yesterday they threaten to try to over threw our government. These people need to stop before they find out the rest of the country is sick of them,” another added.
