Footage of an all-out brawl at a vocational school in Quijing, Yunnan province has emerged online. The 30-second clip shows students stampeding through campus, armed with long poles and performing sucker kicks on their fellow classmates.
The fight was initially caused by a disagreement between two students studying architecture and sports last Friday afternoon, local news outlets report. This then escalated into a massive brawl when more student decided to join in on the fun.
Campus security were unable to contain the out of control fracas, so local police were eventually called in to settle things down. Despite what may appear to be a troupe of military personnel in the video, the military was not called in, those are just some military students looking to wreak some havoc.
When the pitchforks were finally lowered sometime around noon, three students were taken to the hospital for injuries sustained during the fight. One security guard was also attacked by students when he tried to intervene.
The relevant police and education departments are working together to investigate the fight. It’s also probably worth mentioning that the majority of these students were in fact minors, under 18 years of age.
On the bright side, at least no teachers got beat up. In March of this year, two middle school students were caught on camera attacking their teacher in a back alley.
Clearly, none of the above incidents show students demonstrating any respect for others, whether peers or teachers. And that’s something that has to change if these young people want to make something out of their lives in the future, instead of ending up in a South Korean prison.
