Staff at Corpus Christi State School, a home for mentally disabled people, were suspended for organizing a "fight club" involving the folks who lived there. The workers will likely be charged with abuse. From the Associated Press:
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.`Fight club' bouts probed at home for the retarded (Thanks, Gil Kaufman!)
Wilson says the videos show mentally disabled adult clients punching, shoving, and striking each other while the employees watch.
