Three employees of a Delaware child care center were accused of encouraging the kids in their care to fight each other — for sport! Find out all the shocking details.
Employees at the Hands of Our Future Daycare in Dover were trusted with the care of small children, and instead used their authority to force violence and harm.
Three child care workers, Tiana Harris, 19, Lisa Parker, 47, and Estefania Myers, 21, were caught on video taken by a cell phone camera allegedly telling two three-year-olds to fight each other for the adults’ entertainment, according to the Daily Mail.
In the footage, a toddlers voice is heard screaming out in pain, “he’s pinching me” while he tries to get away from the other little kid attacking him.
One of the workers is heard instructing, “no pinching, only punching,” as she brings him back to the designated fight zone.
“Clearly one of the children is crying and does not want to continue on and he is pushed back into the fray by one of the adults,” Dover Police Captain Tim Stump told KYW-TV.
The day care has been shut down with its license suspended, pending a hearing.
Although the video was taken in March, the three suspects were arrested on Aug. 20. The fight footage is considered evidence in the case and is not being showed to the public or parents.
