The disturbing video of Bridgewater-Raritan High School students fighting has been taken down, but the Facebook page generating all the talk in town remains up. The person who created this fight club of sorts on March 14th however is still defiant and continuing to post on the public wall as the school tries to figure out who it is.
This morning saying the page administrator posted, “I would rather stay anonymous than be known as the idiot who gets caught.”
Then later in the day, “To all my haters I didn’t get caught so stay off my page of you don’t like it. Posting threats and making fun of me makes you just as bad as the bullies who push kids to commit suicide.”
Some students at the school are just hearing about the page and most disappointed with the negative attention..
The district currently is on spring break this week but the Superintendent did send home a letter to parents amid all of the media reports about the violent page.
“The administration responded quickly to these fights and knew the student identities well before the videos were posted; disciplinary action was taken in each case. As for the Facebook postings, the district has no legal jurisdiction,” said superintendent Michael Schilder also went on to acknowledge there has been a high volume of fights in the school in recent months — 12 since September with 7 of those just this month.
Meanwhile, the Bridgewater Police Department is also looking into the matter and that at this point the fights appear to be completely random and not organized for the sole purpose of posting to this BRHS fight page.
