Online fight videos trouble educators

As videos of fights involving students attract viewers on YouTube and other Internet sites, some educators are concerned the trend could increase school violence. "Kids are looking for their 15 megabytes of fame," said Parry Aftab, executive director of the Internet safety group WiredSafety.org. "Kids' popularity is measured by how many hits they get, how many people visit their sites." The Dallas Morning News/The Associated Press
