What is this worsening behavior among teenage girls as evidenced by the physical mobbing
in a Brooklyn McDonalds which a teenage girl was physically mobbed by 4 other teenagers and beaten until she lost consciousness while the crowd watched, doing nothing & a teenager in Florida was attacked w/her younger brother by another teenager after school?

Teens believed they should be "handling" their own problems as if they were adults themselves. Bystanders generally minded their own business rather than get involved. Apparently that hasn't changed.
