WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A schoolyard brawl isn’t news, until it hits YouTube allowing the whole world to access the girl fight at Laney High School. Brooke Glisson’s mom Emily says her daughter is the victim of the fight and she doesn’t want her daughter’s future destroyed by someone else’s recklessness.

“Things like this that get on YouTube, when you got to look for a job or look to go to college and somebody Google’s that,” said Emily Carder. “Once it’s online that’s going to affect you. What you do today in school and what you do in high school today will affect you in the future.”

Carder says she is concerned about her daughter Brooke now that a video of a schoolyard fight involving her daughter was posted on YouTube. Carder says Brooke was attacked by the other girl in the video and wanted no part in the fight. She says the other girl called “TT” instigated the altercation first by calling Brooke names. Then, Carder says TT threw a drink which she says was soda on Brooke before the fight even started.

“The video that’s on YouTube doesn’t show that part,” says Carder. “It only shows the part where my daughter is being grabbed by the hair and thrown on the ground.”

Carder says the other girl has continued to harass Brooke online since the fight happened and she’s worried about what “TT” could do next.

“She has sent messages to my daughter saying that she’s ready for round two,” said Carder. “That she enjoyed how my daughter squirmed under her fist when she was beating her.”

Carder says to her this is the obvious work of a bully. She says she thinks teenagers resort to fighting because of what they see on television but she thinks some kids may need a reality check.

“You never lay your hand on somebody or something like that,” said Carder. “There’s no excuse for it. None.”

Carder says the Brooke was given three days suspension and the other girl was given five days. She says her family will not tolerate the abuse her daughter suffered and they plan to take legal action.

I go to laney and saw the fight and theyre both trash. T.T. has been kicked out of multiple schools and brookes boyfriend sucker punched some dude for no apparent reason a couple weeks ago then continued to call him profanities. Theyl both grow up to be unsuccessful people who contribute nothing and I’m sure this is the first of many times both will be on the news for something negative

This is news worthy. but, it should be against the law to post on YouTube. That is what is wrong. Kids think if they make YouTube they have made it in the world. I think it is a shame. Kids look up to this trash. And most of the time you will see them on CNN, etc. That is what is wrong. It should be on the news that they are in jail and charges have been brought against them. but, what is so bad is the parents will pay the price, with lawyers, etc.. The kids will be stars. That is what needs to change.

Don’t fret…WWAY was actually late at getting the news on this Rocky Balboa type event.
The fight video is scheduled to be on Tosh.o and America’s Funniest Videos in the Spring, and may even find a spot on American Idol with options for the 2 girls to have a career in film and TV because, even the loser gets a piece of the pie on American Idol.
All of this takes the pressure off of Saffo and both Berger’s…wouldn’t you all agree?
If this type of entertainment is what you like….then have at it:

Hey here’s a brilliant idea. We have all four of our children in karate to teach them to defend themselves. Try putting your kids in self defense classes and you would be amazed at how they can take care of themselves. TT would have been taken down by any of my kids.

Why should something that happened in a public place be illegal to post on YouTube? The video in no way hurt anyone or violated any rights. Why should anyone be arrested or go to court? This was simply 2 girls having a fight. It happens. The only problem I see is the overreaction of some parents, and them wanting to take it into the legal system.
