Just released videos of the alleged “fight club” at a Texas institution for people with disabilities show residents forced to fight as employees laughed and encouraged the brutal behavior.
Authorities first discovered the cell phone videos in March which uncovered overnight fights at the Corpus Christi State School in Corpus Christi, Texas, which police now say went on nearly every night for over a year.
Residents say they were threatened and told not to tell anyone, even their parents, about the fights.
A judge recently ordered the videos to be released to an attorney who is representing a former resident in a lawsuit against the state of Texas.
Since the videos were discovered, six former employees at the facility have been indicted, reports ABC News. To read more and to see the videos click here.
