Latia HarrisSALEM, NJ – Loose lips may sink ships, but one woman in New Jersy learned that they may also get your face pummeled mercilessly while people stand around and watch.

There’s a video going around that shows a woman in a McDonald’s uniform delivering multiple blows to the face of a woman lying on the ground. The video also shows the victim’s small child kicking the attacker’s leg while a group of people stand around recording the beating.

It is now known that the woman who got her face rearranged is 27-year-old Catherine Ferreira. The person doing the rearranging is a former co-worker, 25-year-old Latia Harris, who is now wanted by police.

In the video, Harris punches, kicks and spits on Ferreira while yelling she could have lost her job. According to Ferreira, this was in reference to her making comments to co-workers regarding Harris’ alleged relationship with a supervisor at McDonalds.

Police got involved after reports came in about a woman covered in blood. When they arrived on the scene they found Ferreira bleeding from her face and acting dazed and confused. She was taken to the hospital were she was treated for a broken nose and mild concussion.

Police were able to obtain a video of the beating and have since signed criminal complaints against Harris for aggravated assault and two counts of terroristic threats. She could face additional charges – once they find her. Her last known address is vacant and she hasn’t showed up to work.

Aside from the beating itself, the video is sparking conversations for two other reasons. One of them is Ferreira’s 2-year-old son. While his mother is getting beat, he bravely yells at Harris to stop while kicking her in the leg multiple times – even after Harris threatened to kick the boy in the face.

“After that I became so much closer to my son because he didn’t care what was going on. He wasn’t afraid, he just wanted to defend his mom. That’s my world right there, I love that boy so much,” said Ferreira about her son.

The other factor that has people talking is the fact that during the assault, no one in the crowd of people watching tried to help. Instead, they pulled out their phones and started recording. Granted, these videos will be used to convict Harris, but the point is that the inaction of the onlookers is disturbing to some.

“There is a moral and social breakdown in the fabric of our society which is clearly evident when a woman gets pummeled in broad daylight in front of her child while a dozen people pull out their phones to record the incident instead of calling for help,” said Salem Police Chief John Pelura. “There is so little regard for human life – by the actor and the bystanders.”

Despite all of these talking points, or if Ferreira deserved getting her ass kicked, I think it’s important to point out that sometimes you have to be careful when participating in gossip. Despite what people say, there’s an art to spreading rumors about a crazy person without them coming back and making your eyes look like a pair of freshly fucked assholes.

    by the pucture I’m guessing Harris is Amish and belongs to the Tea Party /s

  • King A sshole

    $500 to the first one to milk it…

  • Lena60

    wow, she did alot of damage. I thought they were inside the McDonalds.I am glad the nut declined on hitting the little two yearold.

  • Twisted1

    “I coulda lost my job”. Well stupid you opening your legs may not have done it. But this I am sure will. Way to represent the Golden Arches. You just had to try to prove another stereotype didn’t ya? Not all McDonald’s employees are violent idiots. (Please forgive any grammer errors. I did not sleep last night and I can barely read screen). Lol

  • thinkaboutit75

    I could understand getting some straightning with a busy body that is running around lying on you, but that was savage and way past the level of anything I would expect even from a hood-rat which she obviously is.
    Side note..I tried to step in between two chicks last year to diffuse a situation before if turned violent and I ended up with my back scratched up by both..never even touched the chicks just told them to calm down…so I can’t blame some of those folks for not jumping in there. I spent out of their attack bc I wasn’t gonna punch one of those wilderbeast but the bouncer slammed one so hard on the pool table it took the air out of her then rolled her out the door. He grabbed the other flung her out and guess what they got up and left together..they were girlfriends which explained a lot.

  • Texas Ranger

    Don’t put your business on the street if you don’t want to hear it back again. Whole damn bunch in the video needs a good ass-whuppin for idiocy and lack of human genetic DNA. The kid too.

    This is the sub culture Progressive ratbastidcommiemofos have created to eventually replace the WASP. Got carry?

  • Vesper B

    The only thing I could focus on while watching the video was on the poor little boy. All he wanted to do was protect his mama. :(

  • itsknotme

    “… criminal complaints against Harris for aggravated assault and two counts of terroristic threats.”

    Well, I for one ain’t giving her a pass on this. First, she was serving Mc Donalds food to the masses which is close to poising the water supply. And then, let us not forget all those Styrofoam Big Mac containers filling up the landfills. DAM HER!! TWO, I SAY, TWO!!, counts of domestic terrorism.

  • 1DireWolf

    I believe in situations like this where people just stand around and watch and/or video this kind of crap, that they should be charged as an accessory. I have personally gotten involved in situations like this before and even at my age (61) I would do so again. How can you watch something like that and just stand there?

  • Evan

    i wonder if this lil boy has the right to be afraid of the darks now?

  • 1DireWolf

    I worked my way through college as a bartender/bouncer in a little country bar. I had to lay hands on the women more often than the men. Go figure.

  • 1DireWolf

    That is insulting. To the ape I mean, he is much better looking and probably has more honor.

  • thinkaboutit75

    I can believe it

  • Delaney3030

    Ha, I see what you did there.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    It’s pretty easy, actually, and the norm. It has nothing to do with the downfall of society, as some will proclaim, but rather the ““bystander effect” that has existed for as long as humans could stand around and stare at something.

    As messed up as it is that no one got involved in this incident, I don’t think people should be charged with an accessory to a crime just because they chose not to put their lives in danger.

  • sativagrl

    Has no one heard of 911 or what

  • Peggy Storer

    Fuck.. that looks sore! Thank God this beast at least refrained from hurting the child. Talk about being traumatized!

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com/ Athena

    Right. And an intervening bystander is putting more than their life in danger. Their finances and/or freedom are a risk, too.

    If you are defending yourself or an immediate family member, you’re pretty safe as long as you don’t use excessive violence. But, when you intervene on behalf of a stranger, you are often on your own, legally. If I see a fight, no matter how brutal, and I step in and body-check the aggressor in an attempt to stop things, and the aggressor trips and falls and is substantially injured, I could be sued, jailed or both.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Somebody called 911. That’s why police responded.

  • Defafan

    Disturbing. What an animal to be attacking somebody like that in the first place (over bs gossip that means nothing in the long run) and second in front of the woman’s child. If I were a bystander, I can promise I would have called 911 AND stepped up to help. Another reason I am disgusted daily by humans.

  • Jessie

    Latia: You got a face only your mama could love. Too bad someone couldn’t re-arrange yours to make it look a little less fugly.

  • Buffettgirl

    My excursions to McDonald’s don’t usually involve fisticuffs… Although I did get rewarded by the manager with a free ice cream yesterday. An employee dropped a coffee top over on to customer side of the floor close to where we were in line. I waited for a second, giving the 8 teenagers that were closer to it a chance to be decent, as they had all seen it too, I know this because they were starting to crack-wise about it. Then I went over, picked it up and handed it back to them to throw away. The manager overheard me saying to Steve “It’s so sad that EVERY SINGLE ONE of those teenagers HAS THE MANNERS OF A CHIMPANZEE IN HEAT!” I didn’t get the ice cream for picking up the lid so much as for making the manager double over, crying in laughter. Did I mention they were all still there and heard what I said? Yup, that was fun… ;-)

  • Buffettgirl

    Nah – even her Mama couldn’t love that mean, bitch-ass face!

  • Buffettgirl

    Common sense just can’t get a break these days. When did doing the right thing become such a terrible thing? You’re right, you put everything you hold dear at risk to do the right thing and that just doesn’t sit so well with me…

  • JohnQknowitall

    You are so wrong. She is a Catholic nun! Christians are amazingly violent.

  • JohnQknowitall

    $1,000 if you can milk it without undressing it.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Common sense = 911 and flagging down a police car. Once 911 is called, take all the pictures and video you want: the DA can use all the evidence he/she can get.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I thought they were still looking for her.

  • Buffettgirl

    It USED to equal folks stepping in for the person getting beaten black and blue to protect them. It sickens me that it now equates to what you’ve said…

  • LuvsHorror

    If she hadn’t lost her job before, she sure as shit has now.

  • MrTwoPlums

    I thought McDonald’s and Grimace parted ways years ago?

  • http://markusim.tumblr.com/ OnlyWhoresUseFrozen

    It would have been nice if someone had at least gotten the kid out of the way. I can see that creating its own problems, though.

  • http://markusim.tumblr.com/ OnlyWhoresUseFrozen

    So confused right now—I dunno whether that wordplay makes me want to laugh or facepalm. Gonna flip a coin…

  • http://markusim.tumblr.com/ OnlyWhoresUseFrozen

    The full video pisses me off. As unsentimental as I am, even I reacted to that poor baby crying “Mommy!” and trying to kick this bitch off his mother with his little feet. I don’t care what kind of gossip Catherine was spreading, that lady picked the absolute worst way to handle it. There is no way you can come out of that situation looking good.

  • Ines Carami

    In the video she threatened to hit the kid? The kid could hardly talk, what the kid did to the beater? And nobody was around to protect the kid when she threatened the kid? Jesus what a bunch of cowards..they prob don’t have kids…idk..

  • sativagrl

    I was referring to the many people who opted to watch and record, pretty sure that’s what the cop was referring to as well.

  • sativagrl

    She cares about losing her job so much that she beat somebody up in uniform on video. Somebody shoot this dumb bitch

  • Dre Mosley

    No one breaks up fights anymore, we just whip out our phones hoping to make the next “viral” video. Society is assfucked.

  • Evan

    yea it needs a comma before now.

  • Evan

    ^hell yes

  • Evan

    does anyone have the backstory though? WHAT did this girl do to peesh this beast off so bad? I mean yea spreading rumors….ok what were they! AAANNND i wanna see the white girl’s face post-beat’n

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I know. I was just saying that somebody called 911 and it could have been somebody in that crowd.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    There’s also a chance that the people present felt the woman deserved what she was getting.

  • MrTwoPlums

    Whoa, wait a minute… McDonald’s statement:

    “This employee will not be serving customers pending this important police investigation…”

    WTF!? She’s still employed?

  • Nick Trygg

    “making your eyes look like a pair of freshly fucked assholes.”
    I think this is by far Morbids favorite phrase to use.

  • http://markusim.tumblr.com/ OnlyWhoresUseFrozen

    Alright man, you win. Meet me in that grassy area behind McDonald’s and we can work out our differences more thoroughly. Bring your kid(s) and some teenagers with cell phones if you can.

  • sativagrl

    Nice…I’m the same way, I can’t contain myself when I observe people’s obnoxious behavior.

  • sativagrl

    Reports of a woman covered in blood, not reports of a woman being beaten. Sounds a bit after the fact.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Beating someone black and blue for any reason has never been the right thing to do and its past practice led to a backlash of lawsuits that now mean 911 and evidence gathering are the only reasonable things to do. I understand what you are saying and believe me I feel your conviction. It is counterintuitive to not help and I am not sure I would stand up or back off given any theoretical situation. The former means I risk it all: life, limb and property.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Good point.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    True. But to be fair, that “fact” was gleaned from a newspaper article – we have no idea who actually called 911.

  • http://1389blog.com/ 1389AD

    Apparently she doesn’t wear a hijab while on duty at work.

    She probably was NOT worried about losing the job, but about being honor-killed by her own family if any of them got wind of the rumors.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I use it whenever and wherever it’s possible. Sure, I didn’t get many laughs using it during my speech at my brother’s wedding, or my grandmother’s funeral, but to be fair; those were tough crowds.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Something tells me American born Islamics are not the same ME born… though all are obviously peace loving and gentle. (crosses arms and looks down and out the left corner of my eyes, pulling lips between my teeth)

  • http://1389blog.com/ 1389AD

    You are making a good point. The only thing we know as of now is that we aren’t being told the whole story. It may depend on who she or her family members are involved with.

  • Sejanus

    So where is the 25 year old spawn of a gorilla?
    That is one ugly friggin mug on that beastie.
    So who is hiding her, family, friends, church or local zoo?

    As for everyone of those pricks standing by…I hope the day comes they are in dire need of help and none comes..instead they are surrounded by half wit gawkers taking video.
    This needs to be a punishable crime.

  • Buffettgirl

    True, but that makes me a little ill to think about as well.

  • Buffettgirl

    Yeah, I’m pretty subtle about things… ;-)

  • sativagrl

    LOL

  • Leasha

    So they will track down every buyer and seller of a synthetic drug that killed one idiot who CHOSE to take the drug of their own free will to charge them with murder, yet the 12 fucking people who stood around and contributed to the brutality of the crime by doing NOTHING to help this woman and her child are just left to walk free with not so much as a slap on the fucking wrist?!!!! Charge ALL their asses with assault as well for letting this shit happen! Let’s thank whatever entity exists that this psycho didn’t beat the child, or else the 12 assholes doing nothing would have been responsible for a 2 year old’s death. Fucking A I HATE humans.

  • sativagrl

    She reminds me of your avatar. Too bad no one at the scene spoke Huttese

  • Leasha

    AFTER everyone made a nice few-minute video..

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Again, we have no idea who called 911 or when. Could have been before, during or after. But by all means, keep assuming it was after.

  • BigMonkey

    This is my new official news site! I hope they don’t allow fat people here.

  • DeweyCheatam

    So the attacker is the “non-violent” Muslim in the pic, wearing the hijab? Or whatever those “habits” are called, lol.

  • sativagrl
  • sativagrl

    We already have a Jessie.

  • BigMonkey

    He must be a really special asshole then?

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis
