Yakima Kids are Filming Their Fights — and It’s Disgusting [VIDEOS, POLL]

I stumbled across a video on YouTube simply labeled "Yakima Fights." My curiosity got the best of me so I clicked on it to see two people at Franklin Park, along with a few friendly bystanders, waiting to see a fight. What threw me off was how cordial they all were, especially the fighters, toward each other. I, honestly, was thinking I'd see a fake, choreographed fight, but what I got instead where real punches thrown to the face and ribs, headlocks and more that I would expect to see in a UFC ring, not in a public setting.

From that video, many others were suggested on the same topic -- non-sanctioned fights out in public in Yakima, and many of the videos included kids as young as middle-school age.

Veterans Memorial At Tahoma Cemetery Made Me Proud & Sad [PHOTOS]

We have freedom. It makes me happy to say that. However, freedom isn't always free. It comes with a price most of the time. Our United States military have fought to keep us free. We honored them on Monday, Memorial Day, at the Tahoma Cemetery. The ceremony did not leave a dry eye in the area. I started crying when the WWII veteran sang the National Anthem. There were lots of people to honor our military there. It made me proud that they came.
