I would have to do what I could to protect that poor girl. I wouldn't look to fight with any of those animals who were punching and kicking her.

    I just can't fathom having that much anger towards anyone where I could punch them over and over and kick them and STOMP on them. Do these kids have consciences? They can't. They simply can't. I won't even watch the video because I know it will make me sick.

    Nothing, and I mean nothing, even remotely resembling this ever occurred when I was in middle or high school. Thank goodness I grew up in a small town with decent human beings.
    It just keeps getting worse....
    You really should read the article I posted from the Seattle Times.....

    Hmm. I grew up outside of a town of 2,500. About twelve miles away was a small city of 40,000.

    By the time I was 15 I'd been on the wrong end of two knives, one broken bottle, and one pistol. My best friend had been shot dead at 14 by another 14yo. I couldn't have told you how many fights I'd been in, let alone how many I'd seen. I'd been beaten half to death by a gang of six guys. I'd seen people cut up. I carried a knife and kept a pistol in my car. Someone was stabbed or shot about every other week, usually someone in the 18-30 year old category but sometimes younger teenagers.

    I don't know why it was like that during that time period. It isn't now, it's as peaceful a small town as any Mayberry RFD fantasy... other than the serial killer thing last year. For some reason during the 70's it was freaking Dodge City though. I wish I knew the reason, because I lost some people I cared about during that period. One probable factor is that the place was awash in drugs during the 70's, but I don't think that was the whole story.

    Not all bad stuff happens in cities.

    Pffttt... that's not small town. The town I went to high school in had a population of 600. THAT is a small town. Damn city-folk

    I see someone else addressed this.
    Yep, but thanks anyway. The last couple Seinfeld's were about this, and I thought from that that they should have intervened. My bad!

    Kind of wondered about that one myself. No excuse in the age of the cell phone.

    The only one hitting and kicking her was another 15 year old girl. No one else attacked her in any way. She was covering her face and head after she fell down and was never unconscious etc.

    You mite actually know what happened and not react to the hype.
