Fight Club at home for the mentally disabled

Postby Amazinz » Wed Mar 11, 2009 2:40 pm

Staff at Corpus Christi State School, a home for mentally disabled people, were suspended for organizing a "fight club" involving the folks who lived there.

Corpus Christi Police Captain Tim Wilson says the fight clubs were uncovered when someone gave an off-duty police officer a cell phone containing videos of fights at the Corpus Christi State School

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

How was this not discovered when the clients exhibited bruises? Fights usually leave marks.

Yea, this is quite more than anything I could handle watching. I have some family members who have some problems so this hits kinda close to home for me. If I was the parent or close relative of one of these kids I would be searching for some personal justice. I wouldn't wait for the courts

Not that it makes it ok or anything, I read "kids" so I clicked the links and both links say "adults".

Hopefully those that organized this thing get what they deserve. :-t
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

That makes me feel a "tad" bit better. But the truth is most of those "adults" are really "kids" mentally, so it's about the same. It's just sad
