Experience humanity amplified

Local kids going the knuckle

By johnboy - 10 November 2008 62

YouTube’s MooMooACAC has posted a highlight reel of youthful biffo from Canberra’s parks, schools, buses, and bus interchanges.

It bears this description:

    “Some of the fights that happen around in Canberra that are caught on camera”

Looks like pretty standard schoolyard violence to me, as old as the ages. The difference now is all the little buggers recording it.

What’s Your opinion?

This is nothing new, and the fights look relatively tame compared to some that I remember from the schoolyard days.

And these kids are “our future”. ye gods. Are there more of them, or is it just these films and things mean more of us are seeing them?

Meh, I saw fights when I was a kid, the big thing was we didn’t have mobiles with Camera’s to record it (ah, who am I kidding we didn’t even have mobile phones).

The thing with the web is that anyone can post stuff up, and thanks to the speeds of the modern day internet finding, downloading and playing this stuff is easier than ever, I doubt that there are more fights than before, infact it may even be less as the odds are you lose, it’ll be posted up all over the web.

Maybe they should learn how to fight before embarrassing themselves by recording it.

Seriously though, this is so common now and it’s often a bully whose friends will record him (or her) beating the snot out of some poor kid. The definition of tough has certainly changed since I went to school.

I don’t think highlighting a story condones it or necessarily encourages it either. They didn’t look like they needed much encouragement, and as johnboy said, who hasn’t watched boys have their noses bloodied in the schoolyard?

Yeah, and highlighting it as a story in no way condones it or encourages it…
Nice one RiotAct. 😛

Just shining a light.

With a bit of luck at least one bully’s parents will be having a chat to their child tonight.

Yeah, awesome!

Send them all to Iraq.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier.

The Young British Soldier.

I haven’t watched the video but i can tell you some of the stuff i have seen in civic latley has been far far more than a little bit of school yard biffo. I saw one girl get lynched by 3 other kids male and female and it sure didn’t look like your average school yard scuffle there was no restraint and luckily a security guard stepped in because if he had not you could guarantee that somebody would have been leaving on a stretcher.

I think we all need to band together and pitch in to get these kids camera-phones with higher resolution.

Yee-eaah, biatches! That sh!t be illin’!

White trash at it’s finest.
