Horrific moment TEN ‘Gifted and Talented’ middle schoolers viciously beat student on NYC bus before saying ‘weirdo f***ing deserved that’ and ‘shoulda died’ as they are cuffed
Sickening footage captured the moment 10 middle schoolers brutally beat up a fellow student on a New York City bus in broad daylight, before claiming he deserved it for being a ‘weirdo’.
The teenage crowd was pictured in handcuffs on Monday, two days after the attack, in a Snapchat image apparently captioned by a student: ‘(He) f****** deserved to be a ***- funny weirdo is and he should have died.’
Video of the attack sparked outrage online, showing the victim cowering as he was unable to escape a barrage of punches, kicks and slaps from the other youths.
It later emerged that the teenagers attend the Mark Twain Intermediate School in New York’s Coney Island, which is believed to be for ‘Gifted and Talented’ students, but also another brutal beating of an 11-year-old girl on a bus just seen weeks before.

The teenager cowered in fear and desperately covered his head, while other teenagers simply looked on and filmed it on their phones
In the footage of the latest bus attack, students could be heard roaring with excitement as they pushed the teenager, as he tried in vain to protect his head.
The boy gradually walks down the length of the bus, going through a gauntlet of beatings before even getting hit by a flying sneaker.
Numerous other teenagers can be seen filming the violence and deciding not to help. The bus apparently contained only students and was transporting them from their school in Coney Island through Brooklyn.
Two days after the incident, police were seen in Snapchat images placing several students in handcuffs.
The NYPD told DailyMail.com that no arrests had been made at the school on Monday, and said it was possible the incident was handled internally within the school.
The shocking snapchat caption also called for the police to ‘free’ them – a sentiment seemingly not shared by the millions of viewers of the footage on social media.
The NYC School Safety Commission, which advocates for increased safety measures in New York schools, shared the footage as it stated: ‘This is why we need safe corridors. We need police officers on buses, not just trains.’
Viewers also took issue with the students allegedly attending a school for the ‘gifted and talented’.
‘If this happens there, imagine what happens in regular schools,’ one commenter said.
The mob apparently attends the Mark Twain Intermediate School in New York City, which is believed to be for the ‘Gifted and Talented’.
Just weeks before the attack on the bus, students laughed and filmed the 11-year-old being approached from behind and punched to the ground in front of shocked pedestrians at the same school
The incident comes after an 11-year-old girl was brutally beaten at the same school, sparking anger after the bully would return despite the incident.
The shocking assault was also caught on film with gleeful friends pulling out their phones to record the moment the attacker walked up to the 11-year-old before punching and repeatedly kicking her as she lay in the street .
Stylized videos celebrated the attack outside Mark Twain Intermediate School for the Gifted and Talented, with slow-motion replays and laughing emojis adding to the humiliation.
But the attacker was only served with a suspension from the Brooklyn school, while the victim has now been assigned a staff ‘bodyguard’ to escort her around the premises.
“Imagine knowing you can’t like someone, harass them, plan an attack and film it and spread the evidence,” said the victim’s father.
