Students Face Charges in Youtube Fight Fallout
Middle school students in Green Bay, Wisconsin are facing fines and suspensions tonight after posting their school yard fight on Youtube.com earlier this week.
At least four students have been suspended at Franklin Middle School, for involvement with the incident and up to six students have been ticketed by police for disorderly conduct.
Several fight scenes coming out of Franklin Middle School have been recorded and posted – in one fight, two students punch each other in the school bathroom while other watch, laugh, and videotape with their cell phones.
This is just one incidence amongst many in a recent trend of posting fights and harassment on Youtube.
Check out the clip below for an in-depth description and brief footage from the fights.
Discuss what is appropriate/inappropriate for posting on youtube. Make sure to mention that your school name should never be tagged or mentioned.
