This behavior should be discouraged by parents, but arresting this woman (who is a single mother, according to another report) would leave her daughter in likely a much worse situation than she is in now.
Those girls probably walked away with no more than some light bruises and pulled hair. I understand it's dangerous to have situations like this escalate, but c'mon. I've seen siblings do worse than this to each other.
Do women spend a lot of time encouraging fighting?
I wondered about that yesterday when I was sitting in an accident and emergency to get seen about being ill myself and these guys who'd been in some big bust up came in, they had a female friend or family member with them, in around the same age, they all were maybe early to mid twenties, if even that, and it seemed like she had played a role in the violence or at least was talking up the whole thing in an excited manner which the two males were not.
It reminded me of something a cousin told me one time about how he believed that women spark most fights and had sparked most of the fights he'd even been witness to.
Thoughts about that?
With reference to my earlier point I'm still not convinced that prison time actually influences anti-social behaviour or prevents its reoccurence.
