bilby commented on the word fight club
"Authorities say vivid video footage captured on cellphone cameras shows staffers goading young mentally disabled male residents of the institution into physical altercations, then shoving them at each other until fights ensued.
'Workers were staging fight clubs with the residents for their own entertainment. It's awful abuse -- some of the worst I've seen in over 30 years,' Corpus Christi police Capt. Tim Wilson said, according to the newspaper. 'I've heard of isolated incidents before, but what's most appalling is that it's obvious this is organized.'"
