Are Kids Being Paid To Start Fights?

Videos of kids attacking each other have been popping up online and some say they are also for sale on the street.   Apparently these are not videos of random brawls.  Adults may be paying children to start fights and even attack fellow students.  The fights are recorded and distributed as a form of entertainment.
The student, who requested that his identity not be revealed, said he was jumped while at school. He said he didn't know why, but he soon found out it was not a random attack. He said he was targeted by other students, including a close friend, who were doing it for money."Them kids are the one you target, the ones ain't got nothing to lose," the student said. "Especially growing up in Kansas City -- ain't that many jobs you can get. Ain't that many ways you can get money. They come offer you a proposition, and the only thing you got to do is beat that person up and they reward you with money."
