Children Forced to Fight?

LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Disturbing video of older people encouraging little kids to fight and it's published online.
LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Disturbing video of older people encouraging little kids to fight and it's published online. Reporter Brittney Johnson from our sister station,  has more on the investigation happening in Little Rock. We want to warn you the video is tough to watch. Just a few seconds into this video clip, It's clear this is more than children playing. Voices in the background hurl curse words threats and racial slurs at these small children, forcing them to fight.
You can hear crying and see one trying to escape. But, someone older brings him back while voices call out for another boy to beat him.

We sent the Department Of Human Services these clips of cell phone recordings of the video posted on facebook.
 Despite the video quality the content alone is enough to launch an investigation. DHS called the child abuse hotline but to  to move forward they need more details.  Little Rock police are forwarding the fight video to juvenile detectives.  Investigators hope to recognize clues see to identify who is behind the camera.

Little Rock police say the video rises to the level of child endangerment.  DHS says it's clear some corrective measures would need to be taken if they found out where this happened.
