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.
The school opened in 1970 and is home to about 360 people, according to the Web site of the state Department of Aging and Disability Services.
First off, Fight Club is one of my favorite movies of all time. It pisses me off every time I see it on TV my cable box says its only a two star flick. That's bull shit! The movie rocks.
Now its quite obvious in the story above that someone broke the first rule of fight club. But that's what you get when you let retards into the fight club. And in retards, I mean the guys working the fight club. Because the mentally handicap love to fight. That is why they are born with retard strength. They are like superheros, but don't know it.
But I'm just wondering how involved these guys that work there were about this. Did they bet on the fights? Did they train them? Did the participate in random violent attacks like in the movie? My guess is that two of the residents just got into a fight and the people there were just egging them along. I really don't believe that there was a handicap fight club. However, this would make a great sequel to Fight Club.
