Boxing in the halls of Mervo
Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School in Baltimore has been the site of several arson fires in recent weeks, with instructional time severely disrupted amid the constant evacuations. Some Mervo parents I've talked to said the school was out of control last spring, too. To judge the veracity of that claim, look no further than YouTube.
The video broadcasting site contains two videos under the headline "Mervo Boxing," showing kids literally boxing in the halls of the school as a crowd looks on and girls scream. I'm posting the tamer one here. (The other involves repeated use of the "n" word and several other obscenities.) Another obscenity-laced video on YouTube shows boys "freestylin'" during a fire evacuation.
