Arresting Them for What?

Seriously, What Would Tyler Durden Do?

If the first rule of Fight Club is not to talk about Fight Club, rule number two should be "Do not have Fight Club in public."
Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said Thursday that 10 Fairview students, all boys, have been ticketed on suspicion of public brawling. Police think they were part of a club of friends that regularly met near the South Boulder Recreation Center for public "street fighting."
Huntley cited, "First and foremost, we're concerned about injuries to kids. This was not supervised wrestling or boxing. ...This was basically street-fighting for fun."

Boulder Valley School District spokesman Briggs Gamblin said, "The administrators are working to figure out who's involved and how to stop it. The feeling is there's several others they need to find."

Fairview High principal Donald Stensrud: "It's a blood sport. It is so antithetical to what we want our young men and women to do, and what we teach them to do."

Whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Is this not America?

If two willing individuals want to fight for fun, who is "the man" to intervene? It's ok for MMA, WWE, WBF and all these other sanctioned acronyms to put on fights, but not consenting individuals? It's these big business corporations that run this country pissed off that they aren't getting a cut, and they are using the PD and school district as their enforcers.

Randy Marsh would like a word with you people.
