Teen Fighting in Orangeville...Live on UTube.com

TORONTO — The strange phenomenon of students engaging in violent fights just so they can post videos of the clash on the Internet is something for parents to deal with, not Canadian lawmakers, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said Thursday.Orangeville District Secondary School in Orangeville, Ont., a small town north of Toronto, is the latest to have its students featured in fight videos posted on popular websites like youtube.com.“As parent, I think it is completely reprehensible,” McGuinty said.“The only word that comes to mind is it's sick for people to attack each other as some form of entertainment, either for themselves or for others to somehow, in some perverse sense, enjoy later.”

Wow.

This is sort of funny. Sort of.  It's a good thing that good old Dalton is going to stay out of it... it's completely a parental issue, not a legal one.
