Formal Charges Filed Against Daycare Workers Who Terrified Children at Daycare
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on an incident in which daycare workers videos another employee scaring the children by putting on a terrifying Halloween mask and screamed at the children as well as chased them.
This was apparently their form of either having a good time or dealing out corporal punishment. Whatever it was, it was completely uncalled for and extremely disturbing that people thought that this was a good idea
The video, which was apparently captured on Tuesday, October 4th, shows a number of employees from ‘Lil’ Blessings Daycare’ gathering around a group of extremely young children while they are eating their snack. The toddlers are shocked when one of the staff members enters the room wearing a “Scream” Halloween mask and starts screaming in their faces while traumatizing them. The children cry and scream in terror.
The masked childcare worker carefully round the table, pausing at each kid individually for maximum horror.
The worker keeps going even though it’s clear the children are clearly being terrorized and traumatized. You can even hear at least one other employee laughing at the incident.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s office announced felony and misdemeanor charges against the following five employees:
Sierra McCandless – 3 counts felony child abuse
Oci-Anna Kilburn – 3 counts felony child abuse
Jennifer Newman – 3 counts felony child abuse
Shyenne Mills – 3 counts felony child abuse
Traci Hutson – failure to report abuse by mandatory reporter & and simple assault
“It appears to us they were using the mask for behavior modification,” said Monroe County Sheriff Kevin Crook. “They can’t use corporal punishment, so we think they were using the mask to try to scare the kids into doing what they were supposed to be doing.”
I hope that every single one of these people end up spending a long time behind bars, because they certainly deserve it for abusing these children like this.
