Where is here generally? And what kind of fight/crime. The later makes a BIG difference. My town does have flash mob/swarm attacks by boredbored M School students during the spring and summer. Those always make the papers. The 2 am street robberies however are so common that the local news barely blinks. If you give me a general area, that is in the US, I can perhaps give you links to sources that are objective vs the news. In the US the FBI UCR code listings are a good starting point.
