Not only should the six beating the guy get lengthy sentences, but so should the guy filming. He may not have laid a hand (or foot) on the kid, but he certainly wasn't just an innocent bystander afraid for his life if he interfered. The one kid handed him a pair of gloves to hold then went back to the beating. That's just messed up.
I'm sorry, but this just really makes me think of the Jena 6 case. I have to wonder about how those who viewed the Jena 6 as being charged "harshly" feel about these 6 beaters, who seem to be white and possibly other races, beating on an Asian kid? (Personally, I seriously hope these guys are charged with attempted murder, since it was 6 on 1.)
