A 17-stone white man has been arrested after he was caught on camera punching an 11-year-old black girl in the face.

David Bell, 51, was detained by an off-duty police officer as a distressing clip, filmed at a shopping centre, emerged online.


The brute appears to be outside the Asheville Mall, in North Carolina, with his wife and child.

In the footage Mr Bell, who towers over the children at 6ft 5", shouts "break it up" as he spins and and tries to address the dozen or so youngsters.

Another take on the story

eu.citizen-times wrote:
His attorney, Andy Banzhoff, defended Bell, saying he was trying to help a woman who was bring harassed by "a large pack of youths" at the mall. Banzhoff, in the statement issued late Monday, said Bell is undergoing long-term treatment for a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Bell felt threatened and regretted using physical force, he said.

On Tuesday, he declined to say if he thought Bell's brain injury and PTSD affected his decision to punch the girl.

And another

With the permission of her parents, News 13 obtained an exclusive video from a juvenile eyewitness.

The witness who took the News 13 video says a fight was about to break out between two girls, and that the group of young people had gathered to record cellphone video of what was happening.

She believes David Bell was trying to stop the fight, but, she says, the arguing escalated into pushing and shoving between him and others.

She says Bell began pushing the kids into walls, doors and even the road, trying to break up the fight.

She further says that one girl whom Bell had pushed asked Bell respectfully why he was pushing them, and that Bell then began arguing with her and pushed her again.

She says when the girl approached Bell again after being shoved, he struck her in the face, knocking her to the ground.

Its difficult to see how this even started or who instigated this, but there is no excuse for punching an 11 year old. He clearly lost it.

The girls should also be reprimanded for their behaviour

He could have killed her with punch like that.
He is a brute.

We dont do knives. We shoot each other. 

Anyway, he lost it in a tense situation.  It's not an excuse but the situation provides for some mitigating factors.  A mob mentality can affect those in the mob and those in contact with the mob.  

You still can't go Mike Tyson on a kid though.  Especially a girl.  I know that sexist but im old school.

This was in the news months ago. I'm sure there was a thread about it on here. I have to say a mob of teenagers is pretty intimidating, even if they are girls. Grown men have been killed by teenagers. I don't think he should have punched her, could have broken her jaw if he didn't already but a good shove and keep on shoving, might have slowed her down. These kids do need to show some respect, and be less aggressive though. The lesson learned here is that there will always be someone bigger and harder than you.

It happened mid January and do not remember such a thread

If there was, my apologies for duplicating
