In as brutal a real-life lesson as a child can imagine, a daycare teacher in Forrest City, Arkansas, allegedly instructed children who attended the school to throw rocks at a three-year-old boy after the boy picked up rocks and threw them on the ground.
According to Fox13 Memphis, a female teacher who witnessed the incident at the Teach N Tend Daycare in Forrest City, Arkansas, said the brutal teacher had told the little boy to sit down, prompting him to allegedly pick up some rocks and throw them on the ground. The witness-teacher then saw the teacher who was admonishing the boy instruct the other children to throw rocks at the boy to teach him a lesson; at least six children reportedly obeyed.
You can hear the young child screaming on at least one of the videos which the witness teacher took of the incident. She told Fox13 Memphis that she quit her job and emailed the videos to police.
The police filed a report on April 26. The police officer watched the videos and wrote in a police report, “I observed approximately 6 toddlers throwing rocks at a white male toddler. The toddler is kneed down covering his face crying. A background voice says, ‘He’ll learn to stop, ok that’s enough.'”
The teacher who allegedly ordered the stone-throwing told investigators the kids threw rocks all the time; she said she didn’t remember letting someone throw rocks at another child. When a reporter from Fox13 Memphis interviewed the owner of the daycare, she said the woman who reported the incident to police was a “disgruntled employee.”
