NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Parents at a Staten Island school were upset and demanding action Thursday, after a viral video showed a father encouraging his son to punch another boy.
As CBS 2’s Sonia Rincon reported, the video showed fifth grade fists flying outside the schoolyard at P.S. 60 the Alice Austen School, at 55 Merrill Ave. in the Bulls Head section of Staten Island. A father can be seen and heard directing his son to fight harder.
The fight happened back on May 14, and the video has since been pulled from social media. But as of Thursday, it was still being hosted on the Staten Island Advance website, and it was still making parents cringe.
