Daily Outrage: Mom arrested for cheering daughter in school fight 

WHAT: Florida mother April Newcomb, 39, stood on the sidelines urging her daughter on during a planned high school fight between two girls. The bout can be seen on multiple YouTube videos and Newcomb has now been arrested for child abuse.

HOW COME: The videos were filmed by attendees of the planned grudge fight, which occurred in a vacant field near Palmetto High School. Most teens present came prepared to record the fisticuffs.

CHEERLEADING: Newcomb can be heard on the videos yelling to her child, “Don’t [expletive] stop. Punch her in the [expletive] body.” Later she reportedly told police, “Of course we were both wrong … I understand where y’all are coming from.”
