News Reporter And Crew Attacked With Pitbulls, Rocks, Baseball Bat By Irate Mother [Video]

The circumstances would cause any mother to be upset, but was this a case of extreme violence or was the reporter being insensitive and intrusive?

A reporter and cameraman from WLNE-TV in Rhode island were attempting to interview Melissa Lawerence, a mother who’s daughter had been shot during a graduation party. The 16 year-old gunman had just turned himself into police and Abbey Niezgoda, the reporter was asking for a statement. That’s when the situation escalated.

See how it unfolds in the video below.

The young girl who suffered from the gunshot wound is recovering at home and Niezgoda had to seek medical treatment and a tetanus shot for her dog bight wound.

WLNE-TV has filed a police report.

Here’s the question. Was the reporter and her crew being intrusive and insensitive during a stressful event in the mother’s life, or was the mother being unnecessarily violent towards members of the press. We welcome your comments.
