So now you have kids that would be doing the right thing acting a fool because they are so fed up and want to take that rage out on anyone for no reason. They plain just don't give a %$&!. That's my take on the situation across the country in 2011 and beyond if things don't change.
You may be onto something. It seems to be happening all around the country unfortunately.

All I read and hear about is people wanting "respect". These same people who want respect are the same ones unwilling to extend it to others, let alone respecting themselves.

Was the shooting that occurred at this event linked to this specific incident???

I watched this video several times and other than a little vertigo.. I couldnt tell who was fighting who. It also looked like most of the victims excaped unscathed.. not to mention alot of cell phone voyeurs standing around. My point is.. this appeared to be more rough housing among aquaintances for kicks and video..than a full blown brawl. If these guys (and gals) were actually brawlin...I am sure a knife or a gun would have been drawn and there would have been bloodshed

That being said.. I do agree that some of the youth of today are getting more wild than in the past..but I am sure every generation says that about the prior. You had movies that imitated the the wild nature of our youth for every generation.......'West Side Story', 'The Outsiders' , 'Grease', 'The Warriors' , 'Boys N the Hood', 'Colors', 'Fast and the Furious' and the list goes on and on....
