Fight Breaks Out at East St. Louis Food Stamp Office

The accusation that someone cut in line at an East St. Louis food stamp office led to an all out brawl. fight

The fight, which was quickly posted on YouTube, shows at least four women punching and wrestling one another.

CBS Chicago reports:

At one point, the video shows two women grabbing each other while a third punches one of them on the back of the head. At another point, a woman walks across the office and punches another person in the face.

 Security officers struggled to end the chaos. It took them several minutes to separate the group and restore order. Some of the people involved in the fight initially refused to leave.The incident happened at the Illinois Department of Human Services office in East St. Louis, reportedly only a few blocks from the police station there.

The fight lasted for approximately three minutes before it was broken up.

“It`s just been cool, everybody standing in line, doing what they do, trying to get their stamps, trying to get, you know, whatever they`re trying to get. It`s never been like this in there,”Detria Graves told KTVI, the FOX affiliate in St. Louis.

A spokeswoman with the State Department of Human Services in Springfield said the staff was unaware of the video, which probably means that the police will review the video to determine if there are additional arrests to be made.

  1. It’s quite humerous that there are so many negative conotations referenced to black americans with food stamps. Yes, they absolutely showed out, but if you are following the increase in food stamp filings & activity, they have raised almost 70% in the republican counties & states. The face of welfare has changed. There is no excuse of poor behavior & it’s solely a reflection of that individuals character.

  2. The fight between the women didn’t change anything. Went home and their condition remain the same. Pure entertainment -Black on Black crime. Welfare is another word for farewel. Drugged out, lost hope, no culture, names spelled backward, sagging (niggas) pants, gold teeth, tattoos all over the body. Wow! The joke – HAHAHAHA . Blame U.

  9. Have we no shame anymore people. Is this the level we have sunk to. Is it only me or does anyone else think that some folks in the black community has sunk to an all time low which not only makes them look stupid but it also reflects on the WHOLE black community and makes us all look stupid. Cant the media find some better black folks to represent us there are quite a few of us out there

  10. …And the 1st is coming around again in four (4) days!

  11. White folks love this. They love to show black folks acting a fool and being violent. White folks aren’t perfect either but they are the ones who control the media. Black people we can do better. Stop feeding into the negative stereotypes they have for us. I heard that they ran this story of Fox News. You know their viewers love to see this…anything negative about black folks and their ratings go up!

  12. Damnnnnnnn My upbringing with morals, values and spirituality with a great educational school system was not bad afterall! WOW!!!

  17. WHY DOSE THIS MAKE HEADLINES? THERE ARE OTHER STORIES THAT ARE MORE IMPORTANT!!!!

  18. Yeah, blame everybody but the culprits. Sorry, trifling, ignorant folk acting a public fool, but somehow, someone else is responsible for their vile behavior. As long as they’re not held accountable, they’ll be making the same wacky, irresponsible decisions from their deathbeds.

  19. Its nuffin. To say all I can do is smfh

  20. There r going to make use look bad we can't stop freedom of the press.

  21. Really people? Really? Really?

  22. Destitute:
    They are crazy people, but they are STILL MY PEOPLE.
    It’s interesting you make this observation about Black People; but at least we are not always in the news killing massive amounts of people in movie theaters; killing babies in a school; kidnapping young girls and impregnating them while their wives watch.
    So, I have to thank your WHITE a***s for highlighting the exact mental pictures the world loves to see of WHITE TRASH. So, sit in your room in your trailer and think of some addition witty things to say.
    JACKASS!

  23. Old Cajun the same way we feel about Pale_Face Trash for 400 years… So keep work so my people can eat like we feed your fore_father for free You Pale-Face Inbreed Demon Pay more taxes Cajun???

  24. This shows how these black trash feel about the hard working taxpayers. They are never satisfied with the freebies they get. Get off of your big black rear end and go to work.

  25. wow it not that serious.

  26. Some folks just don,t know how to act ,who needs jerry springer,when you have fools like this just waiting to make complete asses of themselves

  27. Chickenbleep youtube taking this down! What are they afraid of? Showing black women in a bad light?

    • @ Mallory, Why? What's Funny? Children's Eyes & Ears Were Assaulted & They Were Very Disrespected & Disregarded. May I Ask Again, What Was Funny? JustAsking"

  28. Once again black folks taking something to hood! Level! SAD!

  29. Seriously, what has happened to the black community? Folks can't even get their food stamps in peace. All that fighting and cursing going on in front of babies and children. Over heard someone saying: 'Beat her a55.' This is foolishness. I wonder what they are teaching their kids.

    • they are doing what the white man has instill in them and they don't even know it.

    • LaRahn Guthrie, stop it! Time for black folks, to man up! Some things may be provoked, but after all, ALL, is said and done, life is about choices. I am saddened by weak folks acting like animals. We need to stop.

  30. Once again I have to thank Your Black Asses for highlighting the exact mental pictures the world loves to see of black folks— namely welfare recipients brawling and acting a fool for a handout. I have no words except there is not doubt that whoever they can identify will definitely be arrested. They will work day and night solving this great crime. Can’t waste opportunities to capture more of us in the penal system….

    • Destitute you are absolutely right.However it is imperative that we learn to do for self.We are under attack on all fronts,family,jobs,health you name it.This country has given and will continue to nothing but grief because we allow it.Our miseducation is turning out to be our downfall and we are not even aware of it and keep going to the government for handouts.Only this time the entire economy is gone and just like last hired, first fired.it will be the same thing would the famine comes from our economic collapse.
