Skip to comments.Video: Homeless man beaten in Wall by two laughing N.J. youths
Posted on 12/20/2011 5:07:58 PM PST by Coleus
A young man strides purposefully into the woods as a cameraman asks what he's about to do. "About to go beat up this bum," the man in the video says.
And that's exactly what he does, punching and kicking a homeless man in the face, bloodying his nose, before wishing him a Merry Christmas.
The videotaped assault has led to criminal charges against a 20-year-old New Jersey man and a 17-year-old boy accused of filming the assault while egging the attacker on.
"Just dive on him! Dive on him!" the cameraman says on the video as the assailant approaches a disheveled-looking man in a wooded area of Wall Township, near the Jersey shore.
The young man in the video knocks the homeless man to the ground, as the attacker and the cameraman dissolve into fits of laughter.
It's unclear when the assault took place, but Wall Township police say they got word of a videotaped assault on Sunday. The video had been posted to YouTube but was unavailable today after News12 New Jersey posted it on its website.
Police charged 20-year-old Taylor Giresi, of Lake Como, with aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit assault. A teen they say recorded the assault faces a charge of conspiracy.
Giresi was jailed on $60,000 bail. A message sent to his Facebook page and telephone messages left at four homes in the Lake Como area registered to people with the same last name were not immediately returned Monday.
On a Facebook page that appears to Giresi's, he claimed to be a model whose likes include the TV shows "Jersey Shore" and "Jackass" and the marijuana comedy movie "Half Baked." On the tape, the cameraman says, "That was Jackass' 'Beatin' A Bum.'"

And these Yutes will walk.
The 'press' needs to get comments from his mother - father - and grandparents. Maybe a teacher or two ... "Mr. Giresi, exactly how much shame and anger are you feeling about your son?"
Sadistic vermin. Glad the cops know who they are and have evidence. Hope these sadistic psychopaths get what they deserve.
Reads like a scene from, “A Clockwork Orange”
What a couple of worthless faggots.
Watch the video.
They are a couple of putzes.
The ONLY justice is to give him a dose of the same.
It is a shame they didn’t pick on the “amberlamps” homeless guy.
The comments are disgusting, totally up side down.
My first thought too.
Well, we know the Ludovico Technique treatment that worked on "Alex"...
“Just Singin’ in the rain...”
I thought about saying what a horrible act this was, but the world is full of horrible acts, I thought about how they would explain this to God but they know not God, I thought about what a shame they are to their families but many families no longer have pride, in the end all I am is saddened for the man they attacked.
May the Lord overcome this hideous evil. Prayers up for that man. Heal him and bless him, Father.
Yes it does, dosen't it.
Say hello to the Jersey Shore generation.
I watched this a couple times in slow motion and concluded that this is a staged event done by very poor actors. There will be many more of these coming down the pipe in order to show that the “Flash Mob” and other types of indiscriminate violent behavior does not just belong to “Holder’s People”. Yes, I know that there are punks of every color, but watch and see if we see many more Video’s of young disturbed white kids attacking helpless victims, white, black, Hispanic, and other. Some of course will be real, but most will not. Just my 2 cents, but watch it a few times and it is obviously worse than an old western low budget bar fight scene.
When I was in my late teens, we started going to a local city park at night to harass the gays who would go there to hook up. It was all in good fun, so we thought. It quickly escalated to robberies, smashing in their fenders, chasing them off, ramming into their cars as they tried to escape. They must have been scared for their lives.
Then one night when I was not there. (different groups, you might say gangs, would do this) A guy I knew from school was harassing a gay guy and punched him. The guy hit his head on the curb and died. My school friend went to Attica for ten years. Just a night of fun (sarc) turned tragic.
The group I was hangin with no longer harassed the gays, there or anywhere. It started as a prank and ended up in manslaughter.
I can see where something like this could lead to lynching. Don’t give the devil a foothold. (Ephesians 4:27)
I pray he gets shelter before it gets any colder - I had a friend whose son was a homeless alcoholic - and he froze to death with no place to get out of the open....
“Nothing disgusts me more than the sight of an old drunkie...”
What they deserve is a firing squad.
I never said that the homeless guy was part of the act. He was fortunate (in my opinion) that these yutes were told or paid to make it look good and not hurt the guy too bad. Also, I never said that the Wall PD procured services of the kids. They were possibly “duped” as well. Amazing what young peeps will do for $$ or other remuneration. Will be interesting - for me at least to follow up and see what sentence will be handed out to the 20 year old - if any. Like I said, just my opinion - didn’t mean to bring out your wrath. Merry Christmas to you and yours. :-)

Crimes like this happen when you build a culture death that does not respect human life. It’s a ripple effect.
Poor man. What scum.
