Kids These Days

Hey you little tween idiots! The first rule of Fight Club is that there is no such thing as Fight Club. Failures, all of you.

They are called teen fight clubs. They are a new national phenomenon in which teenagers use a video camera to film themselves taking jabs at each other for fun.

A Southwest High School student in Macon recently posted a taped fight on the popular Internet site MySpace, which The Telegraph viewed this week. The video shows two boys playing basketball when one strips off his white T-shirt and takes a swing at the smaller teen, who falls to the ground.

Sigh. What would Tyler Durden do?!

    This is just an effect of poor parents. It does not take a village to raise a child but it does take parents who are active (positivlily) in their child’s life and is willing to communicate dangers in life.

    Be careful of what you say richardr, if you were a Republican, a Democrat would have already called you a classist.

    You should have said, “This is just an effect of poor parenting.” Poor parents insinuates that people with little money cannot raise their children well.

    “It does not take a village to raise a child ”

    What happens when it’s the village idiot that is the parent of the child?

    I don’t think they can “fight” this. But they can educate kids about a “fight” vs. assault which is a crime. Cold cocking somebody should land a person in jail. Then they could contain this thing inside with mouthpieces, gloves and headgear. Doraville for example has our own community boxing club. Then of course high school football and wrestling as outlets, martial arts studios and “ultimate fighting” gyms like what Bill Goldberg started in Atlanta.
