Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - There are many violent videos being posted of people across the Queen City getting into street fights.

Many people said the video is hard to watch because it shows very violent fights. That's not all. Not only are the witnesses not stopping the fights but they are also cheering them on, encouraging kicking, punching and even bloodshed.

Each month, you can find several videos like these posted online, often by anonymous people. The majority of the video uncovered by Eyewitness News appear to have been shot on the city's east side.

It's proof that the street battles continue, despite a massive effort to stop the violence. Anti-Violence Activist Arlee Daniels talked to Channel 7.

"We're either going to talk about it or were going to do something about it and we can't afford to talk about it anymore because it doesn't appear to be getting any better," Daniels said.

Daniels goes on to say that residents in the area will continue to fight against this violence, encouraging people to stop the brawls instead of rooting the people on.
