Facebook Video Shows Woman Apparently Taunting Brawling Kids

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A disturbing Facebook video, apparently filmed Tuesday in Killeen, seems to show an adult woman, possibly a mom, forcing her son to fight, even after he's hurt.

Now the Killeen Police Department, (KPD), is getting phone calls from across the country.

"let's go!" two young boys are heard shouting as they circle around each other, preparing for a fight.

A woman, described in the title of the video as one of their moms, is heard saying,  "Square it up equally."

She sets the ground rules and says to a group of kids watching, "If any of you all try to jump in, it's going to get nasty. I'll tell you that right now."

The children filming the brawl on a cell phone cheer and egg the opposing kid on.

One says, "C'mom, hurry up, Superman punch him!"

Then the woman is also heard taunting someone, possibly her son's challenger.

"You came to this property to fight, now you want to sit here and back down?" she says.

She tells her son, "Get your hands ready, get it up, get it up, keep 'em up, keep 'em up."

Then, he takes multiple punches to the face, and the woman says, "Do not turn your back, turn that [expletive] up."

So the boys continue to go at it, until the boy being coached by the woman lets out a cry and steps away, but she is seen in the video basically saying it's not over yet.

She steps toward them in an apparent effort to bring the sparring boys closer together.

"Bring it up, bring it up, put your hands up, take it up."

He keeps fighting for about 15 more seconds, but then he grabs his nose and screams again, running toward the woman.

But she apparently wasn't there to shelter or console him.

She says she wants him to keep going, but he doesn't seem to want to. 

She is seen on camera saying, "You have got to fight, right now."

He immediately yells back, "I can't!"

The kid filming the fight on his phone then says, "This is going on Facebook."

Within the first 24 hours, the video got about 15 thousand shares on Facebook.

KPD received several calls from concerned citizens, even outside the state.

Carroll Smith with KPD said, "Unfortunately, we don't want to comment on a case that we really don't know about yet. We just received it today, it has been assigned to a detective, and there's a lot of things they need to do to investigate what really went on."

After all, the video comes to an end shortly after the boy tells his the woman he can't fight anymore, begging the question of what exactly happened next.

The video was removed from Facebook Wednesday.
