‘More!’ Spectators Cheer as Teen Girls Brawl in Woods

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - One of the girls is calling it the culmination of teen bullying. But whatever one wants to call it, it’s clear the video is shocking. Not just for the violence it features, but also for the goading and celebration heard in the background.

The video was reportedly taken last week, and features two Seattle-area teen girls brutally beating each other in a wooded area as friends cheer.

“Oh, (expletive), that was a good hit to the (expletive) temple! Dude, that must’ve hurt!” one spectator is heard saying.

“Yeah, one-punch knockout! That’s what I say!” said another.

The video was posted on YouTube, but was later removed. KOMO-TV has excerpts, and reports on the incident:
