A 15-year-old girl was badly beaten in a Seattle bus tunnel while three security guards looked on. The attack was caught on tape -- but we want to warn you, some of this video may be disturbing to you.Another teenage girl can be seen attacking the victim while three men allegedly stole her purse, phone, and iPod.

The four have all been charged with robbery.

Three unarmed security guards who witnessed the attack said they did not intervene because they have standing orders to "observe and report," but not to stop fights or criminal activity.

That protocol is now under review.
