80 children from schools in 3 rival towns met up to have a big fight....

I find this scary and shocking... they showed some of the weapons confiscated on the TV and it's so lucky this was cancelled... someone would definitely have got hurt/killed
Why are you scared of heights?
Many people are scared of heights.
It's not the height that bothers me. It's the impact that terrifies me.

Crazy kids. :/

They shouldn't be using the internet to plan IRL battles, they should be using the internet to plan LAN parties! D:

But in all seriousness, that is quite tragic that 80 people planned to have a 'battle' using weapons and shit. Great that the police showed up and stopped it.

Guess they wanted to pwn IRL but most would fail...

Sounds fun icon_biggrin.gif I remember when I was 9-10 at my school the kids from different classes had wars sometimes, we threw rocks and wooden sticks at each other, no one was injured icon_razz.gif

i hate people


who is to blame? all of the above. Parents, School Officials, the dumb ass's themselves, really I don't see how out of 80 kids not one of them blabbed. I bet they did but the patents/school officials just let it slide.

WHAT?! GOOD THING IT WAS STOPPED?! It's terrible! Ugh.. you realize what? If all of them had killed each other.. wait wait, hold on..

Go figure or read my elaboration on what I said: If these kids = dumb shits for doing that, and dumb = bad thing, and bad things = need to get rid off, then why not let them kill each other?

i-i-i'm sorry .. b-but Devon ..... LOL.

"C'mon Jimmay, we gun be takin em on up on dem moores aye. Ya das right, jus near da ol cider mill!!!"

I've been to Devon countless times since my family live there, and i could never imagine this happening there. But then again, i guess i've only seen a small portion of the place. So yeah, that's quite disturbing.

Whereas, if this had happen in London i'd just be like "just another day ..".

Ah ... 80 of them ... lol




P.S - LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! NO WAAAAAY!!!!

SHOULD HAVE BEEN 80 18+ year olds


They would be unstoppable at first, you can easily own a police officer or any law enforcement

Then they call the riot police and you're screwed

18 year olds would've used more things than sticks. Now that would be something awesome to see on a rooftop.

And this is the shit that pisses me off, they should have just let them fight. I mean the more that die the less chavs and morons there are on this planet. Not like they were helping society.....

Seriously how epic would it be if they actually fought? You can garuntee some punk would videotape it and post it on youtube for all to enjoy.

A 3-way grudge melee match involving school kids....doesn't get any more entertaining than that tbh.
