I'm trying hard to imagine myself growing up as a teenager and fighting with another individual in public, broad daylight and embarrassing myself.

However, rather than public fights being embarrassing these days, public fights among youth is the only acceptable means of handling conflict.

Some young people wait until there's a public event to fight! Public events where people have gathered to enjoy the summer, their families, their friends and the entertainment provided.

The ridiculous fight over the Memorial Day weekend  at Canalside is not only embarrassing but senseless. Additionally, along with their being a fight, one of the teens involved had a gun.

What are your thoughts regarding these types of incidents and what is the solution?
