Happy Slapping is when an individual is struck by another person or gang of individuals and subsequently video taped or photographed while the beating is taking place.  These photos and videos are then circulated by cell phone and/or uploaded and circulated over the internet.
This form of assault is gaining momentum, and we are seeing more and more .  This form of assault is not only dangerous, but, by putting it on the internet, it becomes available for anyone and everyone forever.  This kind of harassment lives online forever.  

Happy Slapping occurs in many different places such as school property, parks, and many other places.  Happy Slapping is not a harmless act, it is a very serious issue.  Perpetrators can be prosecuted for more than one offense.
