A St. Louis mother is accused of encouraging her children to fight each other on cell phone-recording that was posted on Facebook, Fox 2 News St. Louis reports. A friend of the mother saw the posting and called Fox 2 soon after.
She asked not to be identified, but spoke to the television station on Tuesday.
“It’s just sickening and I feel like there should be some kind of criminal action taken,” she told us. “I couldn’t even watch the whole video. I had to stop it and look again. It was sad.”
In the video, two children are violently fight each other. However, one of the children is clearing getting the upper hand and asking that the attack stop. That plea didn’t seem to make the mother break up the fight. In fact, she egged the children on and offered suggestions on how they can better attack each other.
“Got some action! Got some action!” the woman can be heard yelling as she shoots the video. “Y’all better ball up some fists!”
