REPORTER: Polk County sheriff's office released only a portion of the video. Believe it or not, they say, it actually gets worse. In all eight teenagers have been arrested ages 14 to 18 including two boys who allegedly acted as lookouts. The victims suffered a concussion and damage to her left ear and eye. Meanwhile Christina Garcia, the mother of one of the girls charged in the attack, says the incident is being overblown and that the victim deserves some of the blame.
GARCIA: Don't waist your time on MySpace going back and forth talking, right, saying all these nasty things about people.
GLENN: Stop. First of all, could you alert Chris Brady? I want to have this particular video and then the Matt Lauer interview posted on the front page of GlennBeck.com so you can find this. Here's the mom. Now, so you have some concept of this, in case you haven't seen it, you have to see the video. It is one of the -- it will turn your stomach. The rules have changed in the world. Our children have changed and it's time we start punishing our children under the new rules that they have created. And yet once again when you see this video, you will see this girl who does not fight back, you'll see her being shoved into a corner. They beat her so hard on the couch that she actually went unconscious. She goes unconscious and she then wakes up and they beat her some more. For a half an hour they're beating on this girl and here's mom saying, well, maybe you shouldn't run your mouth? What kind of horrible mom is this?
Do we have the interview now with Matt Lauer? Matt Lauer this morning had the mother who said, you know, don't go running your mouth, she had her on television -- or he had her on television. Now, I doubt that she'll go on television yet again because she knew she was in trouble from the very beginning with Matt Lauer. Listen to the interview.
LAUER: I just want to make sure I'm characterizing what you said correctly and correct me if I'm wrong. You think that the police have mishandled this, somehow overblown this case and that the victim deserves some of the blame? Is that accurate?
GARCIA: Well, I need to make a correction. First of all, I do have custody of my daughter, okay? I want to make that very clear.
GLENN: Oh, good. That's very clear. I'm glad she's cleared that up.
LAUER: What about the actual, what about the actual beating on tape? Do you think this has been overblown?
GARCIA: I didn't say that.
GLENN: Stop, stop. Her silence says it all. There is a delay, Stu?
STU: Yeah, yeah, there was a delay throughout. I mean, seemed like she paused even additionally to that delay but there is some delay.
GLENN: Go ahead.
GARCIA: I didn't say that. Mercades, my daughter, warned this girl before she came into the house, the two girls that you have been running your mouth about over MySpace and threatening are in the house; please do not go in the house. She told her, and there's an eyewitness right next door, an adult that actually heard my daughter tell this girl, please, do not go in the house.
GLENN: She called the police.
LAUER: Your daughter lured this young lady, the victim, to this house so that the beating could occur, you say that's absolutely not true?
GARCIA: No, it's not. It is not true.
LAUER: And so how many times during this --
GLENN: Stu, are you following this? Is this the house, is this the house the girl who keeps saying don't hit the glass, don't hit the glass, don't hit the shelves, is that the girl? Is this --
STU: I think that's --
GLENN: This mother's house?
STU: I think so. And the grandmother lives there as well. Kind of what I'm getting from this.
GLENN: So the only one that would say don't hit the shelf, don't hit the glass, don't wreck the shelves is this woman's girl.
STU: I would think so, yes.
GLENN: You would think so. I mean, unless there's a really, really responsible teenager involved in this beating.
STU: Right. You're just like --
GLENN: Hey, hey, let's respect somebody else's property.
STU: Go ahead, break her eye socket but make sure -- there's nice crystal in there.
GLENN: There's like a Hummel figurine in there. Do you know whether or not those things are worth? I only know because I get on eBay all the time. When I'm not on FaceBook, I'm on eBay pricing out Hummel figurines.
STU: It is possible.
GLENN: It is possible. I don't know.
STU: The police will check into that, I'm sure.
GLENN: If you don't know what we're talking about, in the beating we saw the raw videotape and we'll post that as well on GlennBeck.com. The raw videotape. You have to listen to what these kids are saying. Can you freeze what you have there, Dan, and go to the raw videotape there or not? You know, let's finish Matt Lauer first. Then I want to go back to the raw videotape so you can hear what these kids are saying and you will hear what I believe is this woman's daughter saying, don't hit the shelf, don't break any glass. She's trying to protect the house, not the kid. And if her daughter was so great, why didn't she call police? "My daughter tried to warn her." Okay. So now there's a beating, she goes unconscious for 30 minutes and then they beat her some more? You don't call police? You warn her but then you don't call police? That doesn't make any sense. And I have to tell you as I watched this video today, the three of us watched it together, Dan, Stu and I. We stood there and watched it together and all of our reaction was exactly the same. If this were my daughter involved, I would personally bring her down to the police department and say, she's all yours; there ain't nobody bailing her out. I personally, because it obviously, you know, this kind of rage comes from some place, I probably would then be capable of kicking somebody's butt. If anybody did bail my daughter out, I'd kick their butt. Don't bail my daughter out, don't try her as a juvenile. Throw the book at her. When you see this, you will not believe what animals these children are. I'm sorry. It's a -- I'm sorry. Don't mean to call them children. What these young adults are.
