MILWAUKEE -- A confrontation outside a Milwaukee gas station turns violent and the disturbing video has surfaced online. The incident happened last week outside of a north side gas station. One community activist says it is important to see the reality in some parts of Milwaukee and make sure there is change.

Near Locust and Teutonia, a woman is punched and kicked by two people while others stand around filming the whole thing.

"To see that actually all go down actually made me feel sorry. This is a human issue," said Community Activist, Tory Lowe.

Community Activist Tory Lowe says the video, though disturbing, is necessary to watch.

"What we could learn from it is what not to do. How not to address issues, how to see what it shouldn't look like," said Lowe.

The video has been shared across social media and beyond city limits.

"That doesn't represent the good people of the city of Milwaukee," said Lowe.

The incident happened last Tuesday, August 18th. The victim has not come forward and the attackers have not been identified.

The reason for the fight is also unclear -- but Lowe says it can't be ignored.

"It's a teachable moment. A time to show what not to do," said Lowe.

An unpleasant reality people want to see changed.

"We have to see these things. It's the real, ugly truth and if we don't try to resolve these things before they get to this point, then we all have failed our community," Lowe said.

Milwaukee police say they are aware of the video but no official reports have been made.

It is unclear the condition of the woman but the video shows she was able to get up after the beating.

      That was my first question as well Jim! Why does the news media jump all over white on black altercations but remains silent when black on white? Our news media is a joke in this country.

    idiots there everywhere those two need to be removed from earth and the recorder..um dumb.. nice job stepping up to help an well at least you recorded yourself behind the camera looking dumb doing nothing then applyed it to the web to show that people like you are dumb doing nothing but its ok record away..so others do the same record an look dumb to do nothing..its ok i need to see recorded stuff like this to see how ignorant the world has become..good job the process will keep going on its only the people behind the camera that are morons for not playing a role in a solution

    Whatever the reason is for beating this woman up will never be good enough. But their time will come back to them. Everyone gets their payback someway or somehow. It will eventually hurt them in the end.

    That’s what happens when you try to live among the animals. They will turn on you. Whites will learn the lesson someday.

    this is a reflection of thug mentality..I dont care what HOOD she was in.This over grown Black man and his friend or girlfriend are nothing but THUGS this needs to be shown. to the police . period. There are more gang minded black thugs that continue to be aggressive at the drop of a hat. Look at the reality shows and the acceptibility of physical attacks. and violence. you have to earn respect not beat someone into giving it to you . Mentality of an Ice cube. They need to be arrested for assault. period. you are right they act like animals i dont care what race they are It is the content of their character

    I hate the media and this is why… They wrote this story on assumption that it is a hate beating because of race. I say B.S. From my experience, this woman that was getting beat was trying to make some money and they were tired of it. Probably warned her before to get out of their neighborhood. I don’t condone the beating but it was not a race issue. If they didn’t trust the cops, then they had to take matters into their own hands. I’ve experienced the evil of the media first hand to divide the people so that the stories keep coming…. It’s all about the money.

    I wonder if the person filming this got paid and if so, how much for this video? Why didn’t they try to help her? Is this a way to get paid? Of course its about race-media is corrupt! This should be reported just the way it is.Blacks hate whites and want a free ride.
