Nowadays a never ending supply of gruesome street fighting can be seen plastered everywhere; online, DVD’s, cell phones and posters of crazy fight scenes. And yes, many of these street fights are dominated by teenagers, fights involving young school going boys and girls. They may be simply brawls in the school yard or tough street bouts; just ask a teenager what’s the latest rave in the street fight world and the answer will be in the tip of their tongue!
Technology has advanced a lot; a fact well known and say,’ misused’ by teenagers. There have been many instances when a school hatred end up in a promise for a fight, and soon in front of their pals they beat the crap out of each other, cheered on by friends and instead of quelling the bashings, the kids start videotaping the fight. They no longer have to be a spectator, sitting quietly in their respective rooms and watching professional underground street fighters slugging each other. No, they want to be a part of this crazy world where pardon and second chance is rarely heard.
Some opine that certain websites draw the teens to crave for aggression and challenges even more where even young boys and girls are seen bashing each other in the streets. There is also the so called ‘Happy Slapping’ video where kids are seen knocking the crap out of unsuspecting victims, the clips of the attacks are then sent in real time to their friends. These street fights are all so crazy, no rules, no one to stop the fight and they just love it!
It’s not just the WWF, wrestle mania that the youngsters are looking for. Many street fights are spontaneous ones and when people are fighting they just simply forget where exactly they are and also that they may get seriously hurt too. All caution flies away when they are out in the streets, kicking and knocking each other as if there’s no end. Maybe the teens crave for this kind of spontaneity, not staged Hollywood movies. It’s such a passion for them and for some it’s a hobby to catch these street fights anyway that they can, passing on to their friends, giving nicknames to the fighters turning them into heroes.
The illegal aspect to the street fight also seems to fuel them to go after the crazy street fights even more. There’s the fear and also the excitement of being caught, the underground and secretive side to it attracting the youngsters. It’s that time when caution flies out the window and passion takes control of their judgment.
Street fights of teens have also led to deaths too. Some street fights are so crazy; it’s quite shocking indeed. There are many unrecorded street fights of teenagers, many hidden due to its linkage with criminal activities, but then some videotaped street fights of young kids are available where they just kick and stomp fallen fighters, limp less body being dragged away leaving trails of real blood on the sidewalks, kids howling in pain after dislocating their wrists, blood oozing out their broken nose and the list goes on. It’s really crazy the way teens crave for these kinds of fights!
