NEW YORK (MYFOXNY)-Video shared on social media shows a dad apparently ordering his son to fight another boy outside a New York City school. The fight happened two weeks ago and since then this video has been shared over and over again on Facebook and other social networking sites. Neither of the two boys involved was injured. But the fact that a parent is seen egging on his 11-year-old son to fight has outraged many.
The fight took place right outside the campus of the Alice Austen School P.S. 60 in the Bullshead section of Staten Island after school hours two weeks ago. The kids watching the brawl had their phones out. Video of the incident quickly spread online to members of the school community.
The Department of Education said the school's principal met with the 5th grade student who threw the punches and his father on Tuesday. That student is now facing disciplinary action.
But as the video continues to spread, parents tell us they're worried kids will get the wrong idea.
