SEE ORIGINAL REPORT BELOW:
Brutal video shows self-identified United States Marines being savagely beat by up to 40 teenage thugs after the Marines allegedly confronted them about their behavior on a beach in San Clemente, CA on Friday.
The victims said they were walking on the beach when they were attacked by the mob of teens at around 10pm. The video shows two of the victims laying on the ground in the fetal position as they are being kicked and assaulted.
Hunter Antonio, one of the self-identified Marines, told a local TV station the fight began after he asked the group of teens to stop lighting fireworks.
