#1 This is completely sickening.
What is even more bothersome is that this event is only exceptional in the level of it's publicity. Because of that publicity there is a chance (a rather small chance) that in this case an actual investigation may occur.
This crap happens daily and nobody much notices or cares.

#3 I'm guessing this is the video making the rounds. Couple observations.
First don't know how the fight started.
Second many places train their employees to not get involved on penalty of job loss, possibly getting sued, or even arrested themselves.
Third grandma tried to intervene and got shoved around herself.
Now I agree that there was a point where it became agregious, and when the victim got dragged out (when grandma stepped in) the second point should get weighed against being a human. Also, it may be time to put the fucking camera down and make sure the gal doesn't bite her tongue or hurt herself - but again what if a person helps and does damage they become liable.
I'm not defending any of this bullshit, just some points to consider. I don't know where this happened, if there are or are not samaritan laws, or what. What I do know is the two on one dog fuckers had proven their point then moved onto what should be charges other than typical brawling.
It is a symptom that there is enough interest in this stupid cousin of a snuff film that there are sites dedicated to these uploads; on the other hand there is plenty of video evidence. So the real story is the follow through by authorities IMHO.
