Milwaukee, WI – On Tuesday afternoon, a video was posted on Facebook (FB) showing a heated brawl between men and women in broad daylight.

In the video, a group of Afro-American men and women attacked another men and a woman. One the men with the first group goes up to where what seems to be a heavy set woman wearing a white top and shorts was standing and yelling at the group, then a men wearing a dark grayish t-shirt struck the woman with a stick in the face. The injured woman leaves the immediate scene.
A 63-year-old woman wearing a red top or what some FB postings described is a grandmother wielding a baseball bat and walking on the sidewalk lawn. She is then intentionally struck by a driver in a moving SUV. The grandmother is left on the ground motionless and the SUV drives off. The unidentified men wearing the dark gray t-shirt is seen running right by the grandmother and doesn’t stop to see, if she is alright.
