Children are willingly taking part in fights in front of the camera and putting their films on the internet.
The amateur videos show images of teenagers clashing - often on school grounds - as spectators stand by laughing. Other films show vicious bullying, often involving girls.
The websites that host the clips class them as entertainment and allow users to rate the violence and gore.
The children's charity NSPCC has called for a clampdown on this new form of happy slapping.
A spokesman for the charity said he is worried the films will exacerbate the problems of bullying and violence between youngsters.
He said the charity is calling for the websites that host the clips to be regulated.
From: bbc.co.uk 'Tackling the scourge of knife crime'
The fatal stabbing of young footballer Kiyan Prince outside his London school put the issue of carrying knives firmly back in the headlines. BBC News takes a look at the numerous attempts to tackle knife crime.
For years, legislation to combat the scourge of crime involving knives has exercised politicians and presented a challenge for several governments.
Back in 1988, when the Conservatives were in charge, the Criminal Justice Act created an offence of carrying something with a blade or point in a public place without good reason with a maximum penalty of two years in prison.
That piece of legislation made an exception for folding pocket knives of less than three inches.
It also created an offence of having a knife or bladed weapon at school with a maximum sentence of up to four years in jail.

Did you know that eight out of ten of us are bullied? It can happen to anyone. Stars like Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, Jo from S Club 7, and former England football captain Gary Lineker were all bullied at school. Here at KrimeKids, we’re determined to stamp bullying out.
What is bullying?
Bullying usually starts when people pick on someone because they are different. This can be anything from hair colour, skin colour and size to what you wear or how you’re doing at school. That’s why bullying is so stupid, coz everyone is different. After all wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same?
Bullying can happen in many different ways. If someone hits you, picks on you or calls you names, this is bullying. The latest craze amongst bullies is called “Happy Slapping”. This is where kids are attacked and these attacks are filmed using a mobile phone. “Happy Slapping” is against the law. If it happens to you, or anyone else, tell an adult immediately. The mobile phones can be used as evidence.
KrimeKids believe in helping others and helping yourself. If you are being bullied, or you know some who is, here’s some Do’s and Donts.
There are lots of people who can help you. Talk to your family or a teacher. There are also some organisations that can offer you advice on how to deal with these bullies.

What happened to
the man who stole a Calendar?
There are plans to build a huge new animal park just outside Bristol. The National Wildlife Conservation Park will create whole ecosystems for their animals to live in. Visitors to the park will be able to drive around in Jeeps to see animals like Lions, Pythons and Manatees in what they say will be a realistic environment. The £50 million project should be open in 2011.
Although some people say that this is a good idea, others believe that it is not fair on the animals to keep them in captivity. They believe that animals should have the same rights as humans. Here are the arguments for and against.
What do you think. Do you believe that the new park and Zoo’s in general are a good idea? Or do you feel strongly that Wildlife should be just that, Wild?
Go to the FORUM and join the debate.
Captivity – being a captive, or a prisoner.
Ecosystem – A system made up of a group of animals, plants and bacteria.
Manatee – A marine mammal with a paddle shaped tail. It is found in Florida and the Caribbean. Endangered. Experts believe that this mammal could be extinct in 10 years.
It is still legal for your parents to smack you as long as it doesn’t leave a mark. But the UK’s Children’s commissioners, adults chosen to protect your rights, say that all smacking should be banned. They think that smacking children is the same as assault, which is illegal.
But the Government say that parents should still be able to decide how they discipline you and that includes the right to lightly smack you if they think you deserve it.
Do you think that smacking should be made illegal in Britain?
