Police are searching for two men shown below after a shocking video was posted on the Internet showing an attack on a woman at a strip mall in Sacramento. The attackers wanted to show others how they attacked this woman — listing the credit first as “Dylan G The Kid” and later as “Rhekidd.” Here is the video.
The first dreadlocked young man is shown in a New York Yankees cap and, after shadowing the woman and laughing at her, punches her in the face to the obvious glee of the cameraman. When she runs after the man, she mistakes the second stockier man who was also laughing as her attacker and asks, “Why you slapping me?” He then knocks her to the pavement.
These men succeeded in creating a compelling case for maximum sentencing. They are clearly dangers to society and divorced from values of decency or humanity. That is what makes them so dangerous. If they will taunt and beat a disabled woman for fun, there appears little that they are not capable of doing. Notably, when a shop owner called police, the suspects ran across the street to an apartment complex. There is always a good chance that such felons are local and the detectives are likely to start across the street.
This is one sentencing hearing where there would be virtually nothing for the defense counsel to do. The video will come in as evidence and there will be little left to do but record the sentence.
