The Trend Of Fights Caught On Tape Is Horrifying

By Fred Noriender

The trend of fights caught on tape is horrifying, the altercations between two or more people are recorded on cell phones, and uploaded onto the internet. Watching these fights on the internet is becoming a popular past time for many people. Both children and adults watch these brawls on their computers and make comments on them.

There are many different types of fights caught on tape that are available for viewing on the internet, dogfights, police altercations, gang wars, but the ones that get the most viewers are the fights that involve children. The viewers are mostly other kids who enjoy watching and commenting on the techniques and the damage inflicted in the brawl. The fight itself is bad enough but having thousands, if not millions of people watch the video is sad.

According to youth experts, both boys and girls like the thrill of capturing the fight on video and knowing that it will be seen on the internet, the children think it’s fun. By reading the comments after the videos, you find that a number of the altercations were set-up previously by one of the parties, and someone was ready and waiting to capture these fights caught on tape.

Fights caught on tape show you everything, the people that record these conflicts want you to see everything including the end, they do not seem to stop recording even if someone needs help. Research shows that people like to watch girls fight more than anyone else. These fights are more brutal than the fights with the boy sometimes.

One of the many fights caught on tape, shows a girl who was beaten so bad that she needed an ambulance because her injuries were so severe. The person recording the event never even stopped to help. Children making comments on the website that shows the video say things like, boy that was funny, that girl couldn’t even fight.

These fights caught on tape do not only show punches, they include kicking and banging someone’s head into the ground until they are bloody. It is sickening to know that this is happening, it is upsetting to know that some children want to have their fight on the internet and it is disturbing that other children enjoy watching these fights.

The one good part about having these fights caught on tape is that the police use them to identify the attacker and have full proof of what happened. There are states that are trying to get laws passed to make it illegal to put these films on the internet. The hope is that if it is against the law to put the fights on the internet that at least some of the conflicts will stop.

No one can say for sure if there are more fights happening between children or if we are just seeing more of them. Youth experts say that children organize the fight so they can be recorded and see themselves on the internet.

The increase of fights caught on tape is disturbing and so is the fact that people enjoy watching children in real fights on the internet. The majority of us teach our children to avoid violence, that it is wrong and no good can come from it , but how do we keep them away from the people who are looking for it.
