LATimes - Three Delaware day-care workers are accused of urging two 3-year-old toddlers to fight each other while the adults egged them on — and videotaped it, police said. “No pinching, only punching,” one of the adults allegedly coaches the children. It’s the story that is setting the Internet on fire Tuesday, along with “toddler fight club” headlines. The suspects have been charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment and conspiracy. They were identified as Tiana Harris, 19, and Lisa Parker, 47, both of Dover; and Estefania Myers, 21, of Felton. “One of the kids involved ran over to one of the adults for protection, but she turned him around back into the fight.”The children “were just wailing on each other,” Stump said in an interview on NBC10, WCAU. “I mean punching, slapping, pinching, throwing each other into tables.” The video allegedly shows the adults urging the kids to duke it out, with fists. The video is not being made public at this time, authorities say, because it’s evidence.Police say that one of the children can be heard in the video saying “He’s pinching me!,” according to CBS Philly. One of the day-care workers allegedly responds, “No pinching, only punching,” the TV station report.
Listen I’m not going to be a contrarian just for the hell of it and say that this is okay. I would be furious if this was my kid being forced to cockfight at daycare. But at the same time I’ve never been in a fight. Legit never been in one. I’m the perfect alpha male in every regard except that. Great looking. Funny. Rich. Athletic. Huge dick. But I’ve just never been in a scrap. I’m kind of a pussy in that regard. Like I’ll talk somebody into a pretzel, but the second they say “why don’t we just figure this out outside, I’m always like “nah I’m cool…just joking”. What’s my point? Well maybe if I was forced to brawl as a kid I wouldn’t be so scared to fight now. I’d be a lover and a fighter. The complete alpha male. So I guess what I’m saying is maybe there is a method to this daycare’s madness. Maybe they are making boys into men after all.
