They were just too busy being videographers to help

CINCINNATI-A Taft High School student has been suspended for 80 days after a videotaped fight with another girl, in May, was posted on YouTube. The fight broke out just before a sophomore English class May 20, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer's Eileen Kelley.
It's clear that multiple people were recording the fight with cell phones, according to Kelley, who reports the victim was repeatedly punched in the face, kicked, and knocked through a row of chairs before being struck aside the head. She escaped with bruises and abrasions according to Kelley (see here).
The attacker will miss the first 80 days of the 2008-09 school year, but the suspension could be reduced to 45 days if the student enrolls in an anger-management program.
