Brutal Assault in Georgia Caught on Video

Sometimes you go out to eat and the restaurant does a terrible job with your meal. It can happen a lot, depending on how often you go out. It happened to me on Father’s Day, as a matter of fact.

Most of us will either suck it up and just enjoy the company, or lodge a complaint.

Very few of us — so far, I’m pretty sure it’s just these two — beat the restaurant owner and her teenage daughter:

Ignore the time stamp showing “2010,” the incident actually took place on Thursday:

Police are still struggling for words to describe the attack that took place in Baxley Thursday afternoon after a mother and her daughter were assaulted at their family-owned restaurant.

When you leave veteran lawmen speechless, you’ve reached a new low.

It happened just after 3 p.m. at the Qwik Chick takeout stand next to U.S. Highway 1. Owner Jeanette Norris says it started when a couple ordered two meals. They complained that their chicken was too cold and that they didn’t get enough fries. The owner checked the food and after more discussion, the female suspect attacked her, slapping and punching her in the face. The owner’s 15-year-old daughter then walked out of the truck, where she was punched in the face by the male suspect. It knocked her off her feet. The couple drove away as two other customers got there. Police call the assault completely unprovoked.

“I’ve been here, what, 41 years — 30 of them as chief. I have never seen anything like this. I’ve never heard of anything like this,” said Chief James Godfrey, Baxley Police Department.

The video thankfully shows others rushing to check on the two victims, both of whom were left bruised from the brutal assault:

When you see something you’ve never seen before, it’s hard to not wonder if it was spurred by the massive amount of anti-white rhetoric being spread these days. Words that dehumanize make it far easier to justify violence in some people’s minds.

To be clear, there isn’t any evidence that this was racially motivated. I simply think most people watching this can’t avoid speculating that this current environment of racial animosity towards President Trump — an entirely cooked up, shameful political tactic he doesn’t deserve in the slightest — is a cause.

The two individuals in the video have been identified as Nathaniel Eric Smith and Latasha M. Smith. We will have to wait until they’re arrested and can be questioned for answers. If you have any information on their whereabouts, please contact the Baxley Police Department at (912)367-8305.
