Outrageous Shocking Video: Onlookers Do Nothing to Stop Alleged Spring Break Gang Rape
WARNING: The video above is graphic.
A shocking video allegedly shows a woman being gang-raped in broad daylight while onlookers do nothing to help her.
Authorities say two Troy University students, 22-year-old Delonte Martistee and 23-year-old Ryan Calhoun, have been charged with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators in connection with the alleged rape.
Over the past two years, "Hannity" has documented the worsening behavior by young people on Panama City's beaches.
He talked Tuesday night to Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen,who called the video "disgusting" and "sickening," saying the worst part was that onlookers were just feet from the crime and were "more concerned about spilling their beer than someone being raped."
Three people were participating in the alleged gang rape, McKeithen said, adding that officers are in Alabama with a warrant for the third suspect but haven't located him yet.

Meantime, Florida tourism officials are vowing to crack down on the yearly Spring Break rowdiness in Panama City Beach.
UPDATE: Authorities announced the arrest of a third suspect, George Davon Kennedy, 21, who was apprehended in in DeKalb County, Georgia.
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. -- Tourism officials who survived Florida's other Spring Break fevers are ready to help Panama City Beach out of the horror show that led to a woman being sexually assaulted on the sand as hundreds of revelers looked on.
"Shame on Panama City Beach for letting itself devolve into what it has become," said Nicki E. Grossman, now president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.
She said she's sending a letter to her Panama City Beach counterparts describing just how her city did it.
"Beer, vomit and urine, that's not what we wanted," Grossman said.
Her recommendation: Clamp down and seek a higher-spending clientele. Enforce tighter beach drinking rules, eliminate traffic patterns that encourage cruising, and invest in tourism infrastructure. These moves helped turn Fort Lauderdale's image around and multiplied its spring-break economy tenfold, she said.
Authorities in Bay County, which includes Panama City Beach, are already taking some of these steps. The Tourist Development Council voted Tuesday to spend $120,000 more on security, to help deputies enforce a new ban on alcohol consumption on the city and county's beaches between March 1 and April 18.
The ban took effect April 1, in the midst of a Spring Break that now attracts 300,000 partiers and generates millions in revenue each year.
Businesses that profit from an anything-goes atmosphere are going to fight this crackdown, Bay County Commissioner Mike Thomas predicted.
Some clubs make $40,000 to $50,000 a night just in cover charges to people under 21, and some hotels do half their annual business during Spring Break alone, he said.
"They not going give that up without a fight," Thomas said. "It is hard to have family squabbles like this but our house got messed up and we got to clean it up.
