A recently posted video demonstrates just how far Western civilization has fallen in recent years.
It depicts a group of California parents brawling tooth and nail — allegedly over a boyfriend — outside a public high school where they gathered to pick up their kids.

The incident occurred Wednesday at Tahquitz High school in Hemet, which is located in the San Jacinto Valley in Riverside County.
The dispute that sparked the brawl had allegedly been brewing for some time, but erupted at what had to be the worst possible moment.
“It’s horrible to hear something like that that’s happening at your student’s school,” a parent told CBS Los Angeles affiliate Channel 2 News. “That’s not a good example at all.”
The parents are depicted kicking one another, throwing punches and pulling hair in what could be described as a no holds barred mixed martial arts tag team contest in which all rules of decency — as well as sportsmanship — were tossed out the window.
“Think about it before you do it in front of your kids. It’s one thing behind closed doors. It’s another thing when there are no kids around but when you are there with kids, it’s just not an example you want to set,” mother Amber Pifundi told the station.
Several of the parents reportedly reside at the same apartment complex where the dispute allegedly arose.
“They say this, they say that. This one gets on Twitter, and calls the other girl a … it’s a bunch of girls fighting over [expletive] boys,” said a neighbor.
School officials were saddened over the display, which happened on the final day of the school year, according to a district spokesperson.
Local residents said it’s behavior like this that gives the city a bad reputation.
“I moved here without knowing about the city and we’ve only been here a year and we’re already leaving,” said a resident.
No arrests were made over the fracas, and local law enforcement weren’t even notified until Friday night.
