It has been a rough year for my hometown from thugs in limos to random beat downs. Now, Delfino Mora, 62, a father of 12, has been beaten to death by teens who filmed the murder and posted it on a gang members Facebook site. Three teens — Malik Jones, 16, Nicholas Ayala, 17, (shown left) and Anthony Malcolm (shown right), 18 — have been arrested. The beating is what is called “happy slapping” where thugs will beat people at random and then post it on Facebook or YouTube.
Mora was collecting cans in an alley on the Rogers Park neighborhood when he was selected at random for an attack. He died seven hours later after being discovered by a passerby.
Jones allegedly gave his cell phone to the two other alleged attackers and Ayala and Malcolm alleged took turns filming the fun of beating a old man down on the street. Jones then posted the video with pride on his Facebook page.
Below is the man killed for fun by the teens.
