    Parents aren't allowed to punish their children properly anymore.

    If you spank them, you are a physical abuser.

    If you yell at them, you are an emotional abuser.

    If you don't do anything, you are considered a neglect parent.

    You can't win.

    Damn it, if ONLY the attacker had been beaten more she would never have done this.

    It's not just kids.

    My station's media league softball team got into a bench-clearing brawl last night.

    Some people are assholes.

    I would bet that physical punishment in response to transgression is more prevalent in the attacker's family culture.

    I'm curious as to what happened leading up to that rampage. I've only seen something close to similar once, and it was a scenario in which a player was being hacked all game without the whistle being blown. He finally got taken down from behind by one player and ended up crashing into another player, with all three of them landing on the ground.

    The guy who was getting hacked all game got up and kicked the wrong guy in the ribs, breaking three of them. He was sent off, the player with the broken ribs was given a yellow card, and the broken-ribs kid's coach was also sent off after he went berserk and threatened to beat up the 16-year-old rib kicker.

    There was a teammate of the beaten girl within 10 feet to the right when the beating occurred. Never saw her again in the picture.

    Another teammate came over to watch, and wait for the fatass mom to do something.

    Everything looked sloth-like... the soccer, helping out the fallen teammate... much more disturbing than the beatdown.
