Little Girls Forced to Fight



"And now for today's horrible news that makes us question the state of humanity: a video was recently uploaded to Youtube depicting two young girls being forced to fight each other in a New York City park."*

Details of the identities of anyone in the video are scarce, but it appears two young girls who didn't want to fight were cajoled into hitting each other by adults. Why would anyone make children fight each other? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss.

1. The moms probably thought they were doing the right thing. If they live in violent neighborhoods...

..you know.

This isn't too far from what dads sometimes do with their sons.

It's disturbing.

But, it's not surprising.

5. Don't mischaracterize my reply and don't tell me what the fuck to do.

TIA.

I don't condone or excuse it, I'm telling you what I think they might have been thinking about their choices.

Ignorant as it was.

Shove off now.

6. We don't know the moms were involved at all.

The "adults" could have been older sisters or babysitters...

2. I hope the social scientist are sucking up data from the internets...

I see this as a case study in what happens to a society deteriorating.

Good GAWD...

3. On the tangential topic of public surveillance

This is child abuse, and those kids will likely grow up to abuse their kids as well. The crime could have been worse, kidnapping, rape, murder, etc.

So my question is whether this enough justification to place more surveillance cameras in public places? Or is this the price people are willing to pay for their privacy?

My opinion, I don't care whether it's a stationary camera or a cop passing by. If it were my kid, wife or sister being beaten or abducted, I would not want to depend on the happenstance of a cop just happening to be there. I've never understood why people are ok with police presence via their eyeballs, but not cameras, it's the same to me.
