Happy slapping
Schools Ban Camera Phones Amid 'Happy Slapping' Craze

(The Scotsman) Head teachers have banned children from using video phones to stop them slapping other pupils in the face and recording the attacks on their mobiles.

The violent new craze among teenagers – dubbed “happy slapping” – has been plaguing commuters on trains and buses in London.

The craze has involved groups of teenagers slapping strangers in the face while filming their reactions on mobile phones.

I guess kids are always coming up with a new way.

I always use mine to record friends doing stupid stuff as well.... No happy "slapping" however.

ha... ha... ha (sarcastically)
Kid's are just getting dumber every year. I hope the craze doesn't catch on here because the only reaction they'd be recording of me is their ass getting beat!

If it happened here in Yorkshire, there would be 2 hits, Me hitting him & Him hitting the floor, hard.

Banning camera phones because of this is stupid. The slapping is the problem, not the picture taking.


It does kind of sound like fun though.

Yeah! They should reaaallly try this in London - NOT! ..

The Slaps getting handed out in Ye Olde London Town normally end up with medics and resus be involved; not a little litigation and definately a meeting with the man with the long Wig! Yeah, and yah don't wanna get funky with him either most of them come from Yorkshire.

Respeck to the Bradford Massif - BoomAchaChaah .. one time!
