Image Courtesy - McMinnville Police(MCMINNVILLE, Ore.) -- Four Oregon adults are charged after a Facebook posting showed a video of two children fighting, with adult voices heard in the background egging them on.  Police in McMinnville, southwest of Portland, say someone from out of state recognized the neighborhood from the video and called to report the fight. 

Police identified the area and traced the fight to two children who lived there, along with the adults officers say forced the children to violently assault one another.  The two neighboring apartments in which all suspects and the children lived were searched and found to be filthy, with inadequate food for the children, who were taken into protective custody.

The adults were also taken into custody.  They were taken to the Yamhill County lockup awaiting arraignment on charges including criminal mistreatment, assault, reckless endangering, endangering the welfare of a minor, strangulation, coercion and menacing.
