Toddler Fight Club

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Imagine being able to be magically whisked away to Delaware1, home of Vice President Joe Biden, the country’s longest-running license plate style, and for a brief period, a Toddler Fight Club. Yes, while under the care of defendants Tiana Harris, Estefania Myers, and Lisa Parker, a group of 3- and 4-year olds in day care were apparently made to fight one another.

This was no simple horseplay either, as it appears that rule #3 of Toddler Fight Club was “No pinching, only punching”. But what of rules #1 and #2? As friend-of-the-site Chris DiNoia noted when he shared this story, the problem with Toddler Fight Club is you just can’t stop the kids from blabbing about Toddler Fight Club. That’s rule #1 (and #2) for any fight club.

Still, it’s not clear exactly how these horrible women were caught. Apparently, one of them was foolish enough to record a video of their crimes with her cell phone.2 Police now have that video, and are using it as evidence in the case against the women. Even more than how they got caught, I’d like to know how this got started. If there were just one adult involved, you could blame it on some sort of psychosis. But for three people to do this, well, how did that conversation go, exactly?

One of the many, many reasons I don’t run a day care center is because this story just makes me laugh. Of course, if you read the title of this post and didn’t at least chuckle3, you may be on the wrong site.
