Woman Who Attacked Woman in Front of Toddler in South Jersey Surrenders

Latia Harris surrendered to local police Monday night, according to nj.com.

Almost one week after she was caught on tape beating a mother near a McDonald’s restaurant, Latia Harris has surrendered to police, nj.com reports.

Harris, 25, of Salem, surrendered to local police around 7 p.m. Monday night, according to police.

Catherine Ferreira was attacked while on her way home with her 2-year-old son last week. A group of onlookers were witness to the assault, and one person shot video of the incident, but none intervened until the toddler attempted to break up the fight.

She’s being held on $35,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault and making terroristic threats, according to the Courier Post.

As pathetic as it was for someone to video this beating. It shows that there are indeed individuals among us who with very little provocation are capable of doing this to any of us. This poor latino girl really believed in her hart she was going to be beat to death and for what ? Imagine what she was going through not being able to defend herself or her two year old baby. Being so over powered and wondering why no one is helping her. Instead just standing there going "oooo" "ahhhh" "yeaaaa" like they're watching fireworks. This is exactly what George Zimmerman , another Latino who was much smaller than his assailant went through . Individuals who perpetrate these types of assaults should be punished to the max and the onlookers , especially the people who video these ghetto beat downs themselves need to and should be punished also. This is a very disturbing trend that is going on in this country. It's the direct result of very little education. Very little if any guidance and most of all liberal attorney's , Judges and media who in their " head up their ass" wisdom have allowed this type of behavior to become what it is today.

I agree with most of what you say John- but you lost me with the Zimmerman comparison. I believe Latia grew up with little or no real guidance also - but of course that is not a license to behave savagely. Anyone that taped this or cheered it on is equally savage. What kind of future can people like this have? What kind are we to have attempting to coexist with them? Good people of all races need to make a definite stand against this behavior.

I wonder how helpless and scared George Zimmermans wife felt when he threatened to kill her too? He sounds like a great guy!

No - I knew who you meant - I was just reiterating your point re the lack of parenting - just a misunderstanding John.
