Girls beat down a girl in school and record it: get nabbed by the POeLice

What if it were a consensual fight? is that illegal too?

Girls Who Videotaped School Fight Face Charges


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Not only was a teenage girl the victim of a planned attack outside the South Brunswick High School gym, the attacker also arranged to have it recorded and put on the Internet for the world, and her classmates, to see, authorities say.

South Brunswick police say not only was the attack a crime, so was putting it on various video-sharing Web sites. As a result, authorities have charged two teenage girls with harassment. One was already facing an assault charge for allegedly starting the fight.

Police said the girls, ages 14 and 16, staged the attack, then used the video of it to repeatedly harass their victim, whose age was not released.

The names of the girls charged were withheld by police because the are minors.

South Brunswick Detective Jim Ryan said police were notified about the Dec. 11 incident by the parents of the girl who was assaulted when her parents saw video of the fight on the Web.

"It was brutal,'' Ryan said of the video, which was described to him by another officer. "Luckily the female victim only received minor injuries.''

Ryan said the 16-year-old who started the fight was charged with assault and with harassment. A week later the 14-year-old who filmed it using her cell phone was charged with harassment and with "possessing a remotely activated recording device on schools grounds.''

"She e-mailed it to numerous other friends, then posted it on everything from YouTube to Google video to MySpace,'' Ryan said.

Police said all three Web-sharing providers were cooperative in taking down the video, but that it had reappeared several times.

Ryan said that using a cell phone on school grounds without the permission of school officials is technically a crime.

However, he said police only recommend charging someone with the statute when the cell phone is used to commit a crime, such as harassment.

Media experts worry that the charges against the girls for distributing images of the fight could be used to stem legitimate citizen journalism.

It could have implications for media organizations that film something on the street or publish or broadcast images submitted by people with cell phones, said Guy Baehr, assistant director of Rutgers University's Journalism Resources Institute.

"It just seems like kind of a stretch,'' he said. "If you follow that reasoning, you could infringe on a person's First Amendment rights.''

A call to South Brunswick High School Principal Timothy Matheney was not returned on Wednesday.

The case is being prosecuted by Middlesex County. A spokeswoman for Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said Wednesday she had no knowledge of the case.

They should send the tough girls to a detention center so they can see what being tough is all about. If that was my child I would kick her a*s. Totally disgusting.

Poor girl who was attacked

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
