Yeah, as I said, [quote=“IanMcLoud, post:15, topic:40349”]
(Yes, encouraging fighting is obviously bad.)

That being said, a “proxy” with no ability or strength is not an equivalent. A Google image search for “victims of child abuse” will help with illustrating the difference between scratches that fade in 5 minutes and scars that last a lifetime.
This incident is a “meh” as far as the lives of these kids go. Kids fight each other and generally learn from it. Adults should not film child-fights or cheer them on, but turning a blind eye is SOMETIMES OK. Following up and using a fight as a teachable moment (@bcsizemo) is certainly a good idea as well.
Edit: changed “sometimes” to “SOMETIMES”
