WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE
Last week a passenger shot a video of a New York City subway fight between two women over a seat. They posted it on Youtube and the video has now gone viral, with over 800,000 views.
What’s unfortunate, is when you watch this disturbing video you will see the mom forgets about her infant during her heated rage. As she engages in this ridiculous fight, the passengers yell, “baby, baby, baby!” as the stroller rolls away. It also seems as though pepper spray may have been used during the confrontation, but she failed to protect her child from that as well.
Some reports suggest the women began fighting over a seat. Seriously? Is this how low we have become as humans? It is embarrassing to see the anger in them both over something as trivial as seating on a train. But in reality, is this over just a seat or is the economic stress taking a toll on us all?
The fighting and violence seem to be at an all-time high across the country. Is there more to it than the eye can see? Are people at their breaking point for other reasons?
It is surprising that nearly 1 million people have seen the video so quickly. Are they watching for fun or in amazement and disgust?
