What is it about South Florida airports that makes people want to bash the brains out of their fellow man and woman?
A two-tier brawl broke out Sunday afternoon in the American Airlines terminal of the Miami International Airport, with seven people involved. A witness told Local 10 News that the brutal fight started over seats available on a flight.
One person was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, though it’s not clear which person in the video was charged.
“The victim did not want to press any charges. However, one person was arrested for disorderly conduct,” a Miami-Dade Police spokesperson told the Miami Herald. “The victim was treated by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue for minor injuries and released on the scene.”
The brouhaha was captured on video and shared by director Billy Corben, who stated that it took place “outside Urban Decay at Gate D14.”

In one of the brawls, a man is seen repeatedly pummeling another person, over and over again.
“You’re going to f*cking kill him! Stop it,” a bystander is heard calling out.
Another video captured what appeared to be Round 2, or possibly an earlier round — given that the combatants seemed drained of energy, the odds would be on it being a second go round.

Just last month, a vicious “all-out brawl” took place at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, where two women got into a brutal fight after one of them was escorted from a plane along with a friend for allegedly refusing to wear masks.
The other woman was among the frustrated passengers forced to de-board the flight that was delayed over the incident. Despite Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies being on the scene, the two went at it after an exchange of words.

The woman removed had reportedly taunted the other woman to hit her, and before you knew it, hair was being pulled and punches were flying.
As for Sunday’s incident, one social media user tweeted the obvious: “Yelling ‘stop it!’ repeatedly did not, in fact, stop it.”
Here’s a sampling of other responses to the sad spectacle from Twitter, with a theme being the “Urban Decay” sign:
The Urban Decay sign 🤣

This video is 90 seconds long and zero cops show up.

Look how many stood idly by… No better than livestock!
It’s a piss-poor culture that is solely dependent on others.

Airports, fast food restaurants, schools, street corners… this same scene is repeated everywhere and the bizarre thing is WHY??
Can someone explain these strange, senseless, mindless mob fights??

If you ever see me get beaten up, please put down the damn phone and help me.

Dozens of people filming and only a few willing to step in and even attempt to stop the fight. This is where we fail ourselves.

Seems like a safe place to fight. They all went through security, so they shouldn’t have weapons.
