Albany High Student Fight Posted on YouTube

A video of the fight, which took place Tuesday or Wednesday, was posted on YouTube, then subsequently removed.

Several parents reached out to Albany Patch this week with questions about a fight between female students earlier this week that was posted on YouTube then later removed. 

The video, entitled "minnie was going wild," was posted May 30 by a user calling him- or herself "teetee andreson." It received nearly 400 views before it was taken down.

A message from YouTube remained in its place: "This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube's Terms of Service."

The fight, and video, resulted in numerous posts by students on Twitter.

"That was ... ridiculous," wrote one student. A friend replied, "not to be mean but i died when i watched it."

Another Twitter user said the fight took place in a hallway at .

Parents said the fight took place Tuesday or Wednesday.

A parent familiar with the case said a senior girl was attacked after leaving her class on the third floor. The assailant's "gang" reportedly recorded the fight, and stopped other students from interrupting it. 

The victim received injuries to her head and face, and, according to parents, was taken away from school by ambulance. 

"Light needs to be shed on AHS and the administration that turns a blind eye to bullying/beatings by the students," the parent wrote. "AHS has had problems with accepting that bullying actually happens on campus."

In May, another parent reached out to Albany Patch about a fight at that left her child injured. She expressed frustration about the response by school officials, and said it had been difficult to get information about her child's case from the school district. 

Administrators are limited about what they can say about such circumstances due to confidentiality laws involving minors.

Albany Patch has requested additional information about Tuesday's fight from officials and the .

@JW...it saddens me that the only thing you can debate is the fact that I called it a fight - another confirmation that my words about AHS’s prejudices are true. What about minority student who have been attacked? Explain WHY AHS does not take action to this degree? For this Albany reporter to call these kids her "gang" is slander. These people (including parents) don't even know the story yet have so much to say. The students being called gang members and being bundled into this girl being attacked by "ONE" student are also victims. Do these people realize if this were a gang situation, the victim would have been jumped and beat severely. To my knowledge 6 out of the 7 kids live in Albany and at least 5 of the kids were friendly with both the attacker and the victim. I respect the student who posted (named Student) the truth - this attack was over the victim dating the attacker's boyfriend and that no other students were involved in this. The student who posted this said she/he is friends with both girls, which clearly shows that she/he is not taking sides but rather stating facts. Did the victim deserve to get beat up because she does inappropriate things with another girl’s boyfriend - NO absolutely not. The problem I have is with the way this story is written and the way AHS is blaming other students. AHS will leap through hoops for Caucasian students who are victimized but will take minimal action to protect Black and Hispanic students. It’s disgusting!

@s.rochelle....thank you! We are not saying the attack is right but what we are saying is this child, her family, AHS, the District and the police are milking this situation. The fact that the 6 other students who were suspended are all minorities (3 black males, 1 hispanic female, 1 hispanic/white female, 1 black/asian female), tells a story about AHS's discrimination. They are purposely lumping these kids into this fight. I heard this story was on the news. WTH is really going on here!

AHS talks about "equality" "diversity" and "Protecting students" but little has been done to protect Hispanics and blacks. I am a student at AHS and have seen all the racism that goes on there. A lot of teachers and administrators discriminat against the minorities. The white students at AHS always get treated better and this goes to show how AHS picks and chooses its battle and who they want to help. I seen this fight as I was walking down the hall and she didn't attack get attacked from behind. This was a high school fight and high school fights go on at every school but this is the fight AHS decides to send mass emails to parents and students, go to news stations to tell how a WHITE girl gets "attacked" and all this was done because she is white. I have many white friends and family do I'm not being racist nor discriminating against whites. I am stating the truth about AHS.

Playing the victim to the highest degree? She IS the victim. How do you know what is biased in this story? Do you know each girl involved? We have a girl who was attacked by another. She did not appear to fight back. If she expresses her anger, using WORDS, not violence, then she is the combative one? It would seem you do condone fighting.
