A story that's been in the news here...two teens in neighboring towns had been having words with one another on Facebook. The two decided to square off and...ahem...settle their differences in person, each with a small group of friends in tow. Or so they thought. Details of the fight were posted on Facebook. The teen from Woburn took three friends in her car and drove to Melrose, where she was going to fight the teen from Melrose. Upon arrival, she arrived, she found a mob of people waiting for her (police say about 15 youths were waiting for the girls). Knowing that she had gotten herself in to a very bad situation, she turned around to flee. While leaving the scene, the mother of one of the teens in the 'mob' went running for her car, and was struck by the Woburn teen's car. The Woburn teen did not stop, and may face to hit-and-run charges. http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/local/BO133074/ Thoughts? Solving a problem with one's fists isn't a good idea, but as some folks have mentioned in other threads, you can't necessarily stop kids from fighting. I think the events would have had a very different outcome had the Woburn teen stopped the car.
