“How can children be so evil?” - reader reaction to school girl being set upon by gang of youths
Yesterday the Post released shocking footage of 11-year-old Ellissia Brooks from Chorley being viciously assaulted by a gang of other girls.
Lisa Ainsworth whose daughter Bethany was also the victim of a horrific assault and Ellissia’s mother Jade Brooks have now formed an alliance to take and stand against bullies by saying enough.
Here is what a selection of shocked Post readers had to say:

Karl McLaughlin: “I hope the parents of the girls responsible came down on their kids like a tonne of bricks.”
Daniel Matthews: “The groups know nothing will happen and so carry on. It's disgusting.”
Linda Little: “Absolutely shocking behaviour coming from primary school kids, I dread to think how they will behave in secondary school.”
Jemma Brown: “Well done for speaking out there's so many children that are to scared to speak out police say they want to help but when they are called they don't do anything and ask the bully to say sorry I think its disgusting children don't feel safe.”
Fiona Hill: “Problem is there is no deterrent anymore, just a slap on the wrist, sometimes not even that, I despair.”

Virginia Hamilton: “This is disgusting hope your daughter is okay. Unfortunately this is some of the children today most of them left to their own devices and parents don’t care.”
