Adults encourage little girls to fight each other in disgusting YouTube clip (VIDEO)
I was completly outraged when I recently heard about this YouTube video showing two young girls (who look no older than 6 or 7) being forced to fight in a New York City park. Why would anyone actually want to encourage kids to physically fight?
Police are now investigating the horrific video that shows these two children being egged on to hit each other. The two start off pushing, then slapping, and even pulling each other's hair with a group of teens in the background cheering them on. This video literally left me sick to my stomach.

At one point, one of the girls begins to cry and tries to walk away. "I'm not playing. It's not funny." she said in tears. How sad! The NYPD is currently reviewing the footage to find out who recorded and posted the video, and who the teens that provoked this fight were. It is still unclear if these teenagers where older siblings of the two girls, friends or possibly even parents. Throughout the fight they where shouting things like: "Whoop her ass" or "Punch her harder." Could you believe it?
We also don't know where exactly in N.Y.C. this fight took place. Investigators are assuming that it most likely occurred either in Manhattan or in the Bronx based on the double-long bus spotted in the background because these type of buses don't normally run in any of the other boroughs.
I have to admit this video practically brought me to tears. I can't wrap my head around why anyone would want to encourage two young children to physically fight. Not to mention, just think about the damaging effects this will have on kids in the long run. Whenever they find themselves in a conflicting situation they are going to automatically retreat to violence. Instead of learning and understanding how to express their anger or frustrations in a constructive manner, they'll be quick to take to physical means. I'm really looking forward to the day when I can turn on the news and hear fewer stories about children being bullied or placed in these kinds of violent situations. I also hope that police are able to identify the people behind this heartbreaking video.
