(CNN) -- Newark Mayor Cory Booker called the beating of a New Jersey teen-ager that went viral in an online video "heinous," "vicious," and "cruel" "This is not who we are. We are Newark, New Jersey. We do not tolerate this level of cruelty," he told reporters. Booker said others might have witnessed the incident, which occurred in August, but no one contacted authorities.
