After NJ Gun Control, Teen Mob Beats Man with Fists and Feet

The media crows about more gun restrictions while not caring that a teen mob beats a man to death “at random.”

The Young Turks will never discuss how a teen mob beats people to death because not only do they not care about the issue, but pursuing such stories leads to some questions about who commits crimes that they can’t deal with.

Here they are celebrating that the New Jersey legislature burdened the people in their state with six new gun control measures right after the March for Our Lives.

Only a few days later a mob of “teens” attacked “at random” a man on the streets of Guttenberg, a small town in New Jersey. Only two of the reported eight have been arrested. Both were minors. No weapons were used, other than fists and feet.

NBC 4 New York reports, “Teen Mob Randomly Beats Man to Death on NJ Street: Prosecutors.

Two teens have been arrested after a New Jersey man was beaten to death on the street by eight people in a seemingly random attack.

Police said […] other suspects in the deadly attack on Sebastian Aguilar, 36, are still being sought…

Also NJ.com reports, “Man dies after being assaulted, left lying in street, authorities say.

A pair of teenagers have been charged in connection to the death of Sebastian Aguilar, a Guttenberg resident, who was found lying on the ground on 70th Street between Broadway and Hudson Avenue […] Wednesday, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said.

[…]

A preliminary investigation revealed that Aguilar was assaulted by multiple attackers while walking through the neighborhood. Two of the alleged assailants — a 14-year-old juvenile and a 15-year-old juvenile — were identified and charged for their involvement in the attack, Suarez said.

If you go to the NBC story, you can watch the news video and see the neighbor testify that the group has assaulted others and that it isn’t safe to go out at night anymore.

Despite both stories asking the public to help the police, the journalists never ask about physical description of any of the assailants.

So how common is it for mobs of teens to beat someone to death “at random”? I don’t know but the media isn’t interested. However, Breitbart reported in 2016 that deaths from unarmed attacks out-numbered deaths from ALL rifles (not just “assault” rifles) by more than 2 to 1.
