Three teenagers have been implicated in the brutal assault of a disabled 17-year-old in Victoria, Australia. The incident is being described by police as “one of the worst assaults in 30 years.”

According to News.com.au, two 15-year-olds and a 12-year-old tricked the disabled victim into going to a local Moe park, where they attacked her. The children posted video of the assault on social media.

The intellectually disabled teen had her face beaten, her broken phone smashed into her face, and her hands seared on a barbeque. She was also kicked and punched repeatedly.

The victim was taken to a hospital where she is expected to recover.

The victim’s mother has described the attack as “incomprehensible … The amount of times they pummelled her head into that picnic table is disgusting,” she said. “Her face is black and blue, she’s unrecognizable.”

17-Year-Old Captive Who Heroically Saved Her 12 Siblings Planned Escape For 2 Years

New chilling details have been released about the 13 malnourished brothers and sisters who were allegedly kept in captivity by their parents in their Perris, California home.

Police are now saying that the 17-year-old girl who fled the home plotted her escape for two years, the Associated Press reports. Apparently, she wasn’t the only one who escaped on Sunday. Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin announced that another sibling escaped alongside her. However, that sibling retreated out of fear.

After the brave teen girl called 911 using a phone she took from her parents house, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department raided the home where they found “several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings” while the “parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner.”

The 13 victims, ranging in age from 2 to 29,

High School Student Posts Racist Instagram Photo Of Herself In Noose For MLK Day

Two underage students from Hurricane High School, located in Utah, are accused of posting a racist photograph on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The disturbing post showed a girl pretending to hang herself. The caption reads, “happy national n***** day.” An “X” was drawn over each of her eyes, supposedly to signal that she was dead.

Steven Dunham, Hurricane High School’s director of public relations, told KUTV that the students have faced consequences for their actions. The names of the students have not been revealed, and the details of their punishment have not been disclosed.

A sorority sister from the University of Alabama has been expelled after posting racist videos to Instagram on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
