Teen Fight Video Goes Viral

Eight Florida Girls Have Been Arrested After Posting This Video:

ORLANDO, Fla., April 8 (UPI) -- Florida authorities say they arrested a group of teenagers who had planned to post a video of a beating on YouTube.

A gang of six girls allegedly pummeled another teenager while one of them recorded the incident on a video camera, apparently with plans to place it on YouTube for all to see.

The family of the victim told WFTV-TV, Orlando, the ambush was part of an alleged scheme to humiliate their daughter and cause her physical harm.

This video is everywhere right now. From coast to coast and around the world, news outlets are running the video or posting it on their websites. Why is everyone posting a teen fight video? The visuals are good for both ratings and web hits and the entire world is competing for eyeballs. Fight videos and 'fight clubs' have been increasing in number and popularity over the past several years but is it really international news when a few teenage girls get in a fight?

The mother that owns the house this took place in actually went on the news and was defending her daughters actions! Who cares if her daughter didn't throw a punch! She was there and it was in her house. Also, notice how none of the other parents are doing anything about it other than probably taking away i-pods and cell phones.
