Toddler fight club: Three female daycare workers charged with making 3-year-olds beat up each other

DELAWARE - Three Delaware daycare workers face felony charges after forcing toddlers to fight each other while recording the brutality on a camera phone, The Smoking Gun reports (http://bit.ly/PTHZjE).

When police obtained the cell phone video, they watched Tiana Harris, 19, Lisa Parker, 47, and Esetefania Myers, 21, all employees at Hands of Our Future Daycare,  encouraging two three-year-olds to pinch and punch each other in March of 2012.

Police said one child could be heard crying, saying, "He's pinching me," and a daycare worker responds, "No pinching, only punching."

The three women were arrested Monday and charged with Assault, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Reckless Endangering and Conspiracy for the incident.

The police arranged a meeting with parents Monday night to answer questions and make new day care arrangements, according to a WKRC report.

Police haven't released the video because it is evidence in a continuing investigation, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Each suspect was released on a $10,000 bond and their preliminary hearing is set for Friday morning.
