NEW YORK (PIX11)- Trouble at a Manhattan high school makes the news again.

On Thursday, not one, but two fights between girls marred the school day at Murray Bergtraum High School.

Students left their classes to watch this one, which was captured on a cell phone.

Classmates say the girl fight was messy and included a lot of hair pulling.

Police were called to both fights, no serious injuries were reported.

There have been a string of similar incidents at the school in recent years.

In 2010, students rioted over a bathroom ban causing a fight involving students and safety officers.

That incident led to a police sergeant being punched in the face.

    This is NOT the first fight caught on tape of girls fighting. There are many websites that show videos of young teens fighting on school grounds. Why should it be such a shock now? Is it because where the school is and what is is near? I live in a town where many videos of teens fighting in or around school surface on Facebook and you don't see them on the news. This is a problem that town face all across the country not just in New York. In the town I live in there is a precinct down the block from the school and the fighting occurs just as much as this school in New York.

    I don't like to see anyone fight but girls need to learn to defend themselves if they have to.
    Girls are always throwing hay-makers and pulling hair, that's just plain silly. Take up jiu jitsu or muay thai if you really want to kick butt. These girls look like amateurs. I guess school is really boring for them to fight between classes.

    Its a shame having to see my school on the news. I hate that that's the reputation that we are giving to other people. Not everyone in our school is like this.

  • Yo the wish

    I live 2 blocks from the school. The police are around the neighborhood when school let's out. This is due to numerous fights outside the school between these students. The staff of school are more interested in sports at the school then teaching these trouble makers how to behave.
