This doesn’t have much to do with MMA, but then again we’re FIGHT linkers, and it sounds like there were some interesting fights going on down in Texas:
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – Seven employees at a state-run home for the mentally disabled have been suspended for allegedly staging a “fight club” among residents.
Corpus Christi Police Captain Tim Wilson says the fight clubs were uncovered when someone gave an off-duty police officer a cell phone containing videos of fights at the Corpus Christi State School.
Wilson says the videos show mentally disabled adult clients punching, shoving, and striking each other while the employees watch.
Wilson calls the abuse “appalling.” He says police expect to file charges against several employees by the end of the week.
How these employees managed to keep this shit on the downlow for any amount of time is beyond me. Everyone knows retards can’t keep secrets for shit. From personal experience I know that the second a police officer asks them any questions they’ll totally break down and rat you out.
On the positive side, this is just another step forward for Texas, where they really are breaking boundaries in the equal treatment of mentally disabled persons. Not only can retarded people get executed, but they’re now allowed to fight as well! Plus I’m sure all this involved gambling, so I’m glad to see they were involved in that as well. Nothing feels worse than being excluded from normal people things.
