I came across a very disturbing newscast the other day regarding a trend in middle schools and high schools in California and other parts of the country. It’s about a trend called “scooping.” It basically amounts to sexual assault, although it seems to be treated as if it were just a harmless game.
Scooping is when a boy comes up behind a girl and quickly shoves his hands up the front of her shirt, grabbing her breasts, then runs away (Urban Dictionary). Watch the video below for details of one incident at a California middle school.
