Teens Found Guilty in Bus Beating Case

Posted by shadmia on March 19, 2008


Sarah Kreager, 26, of Baltimore received a brutal beating while riding on a bus, on Dec. 4 2007, at the hands of a group of teenagers from Robert Poole Middle School. She suffered two broken bones, bruises and swollen eyes.

“She had eye muscles that were damaged,” a police report states. “She had deep lacerations on the top of her head and another above her neck.”

In a case that had racial overtones, nine black teenagers, aged 14 to 15-years-old, were originally charged in the savage beating. Judge David W. Young found four of the students responsible for first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and conspiracy in the attack on Kreager. They also were found responsible for reckless endangerment for hitting her boyfriend, Troy Ennis. A fifth student was found responsible for reckless endangerment against Kreager and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment on Ennis. Earlier in the case, a sixth admitted her role in the attack, and the judge delayed the cases against three others. Click here for the TV news report.

The teenagers face a maximum punishment on each charge of commitment to a juvenile facility until the age of 21. The judge will decide each teenager’s fate during another hearing on April 3. Sentencing in any juvenile matter is at the discretion of the juvenile court judge.

Nakita McDaniels, 15, was one of the youths involved. The incident started when Kreager attempted to sit in a seat beside McDaniels. McDaniels told Kreager that she couldn’t sit because the seat belonged to her “homegirl.” Kreager got up and went to stand with her boyfriend, Troy Ennis, who commented: “You know how these kids are these days. Our 5-year-old daughter has more manners”

On hearing those remarks McDaniels got up and said: ‘What you say? You white [expletive] think you own everything’ At that point, McDaniels punched Kreager in the face, pulled her hair and tried to pull her deeper into the back of the bus. The bus stopped and the couple attempted to get off. They were followed by a bunch of teens. According to Ennis, the juveniles eventually spilled out onto the street and began kicking and hitting him and Kreager until police arrived. He said he nearly cried when he saw her bloody face.

    ACLU where are you. Now all you black people out there, was this political correct.

    They should get the maximau sentence allowed by law. Who needs black thugs like this roaming the streets. I am sick and tired of thugs and their motto, It’s because I’m black! It is because you DON HAVE NO JOB, DON’T WANT NO JOB AND NEVER WILL HAVE NO JOB.
