We don't need to make this an attack on working parents.

The problem is with child abusers. These people are likely to be around children, somewhere, at some point in time, either their own children, or niece or nephew, or child in a Sunday school class, or neighbor they're babysitting for a couple hours, or whatever.

Or do you posters who"blame the parent for working" think a parent should NEVER leave their child with anyone else their entire childhood?

If you guys want to have a discussion on the moral ins and outs of two working parents vs. stay at home, please do so in the appropriate forums. Let’s stay on topic here.

I wonder if the daycare is now reviewing footage from her classroom to see what other incidents happened.
Yeah, another one is in trouble for causing fingernail puncture wounds on a 4-year-old girl and carrying her by the foot and dropping her on a cot.

Probably been doing this for years. That woman is mammoth. She could’ve killed that child.

Yes.
Yes, they would be absolutely morally wrong.

Instead of putting people's heads on stakes, how about if we made sure people got a reasonable wage and reasonable working conditions and we did more to make sure people's lives were better.

I don't think, in most cases, people have an inherent violence towards other people, or children. As much as they snap due to being stressed out by other things happening in their lives.

Do not send any children that you love to daycare. If you don't love them enough to stay at home and enjoy your time with them what makes you think a stranger is going to love them enough to? They don't make enough money to do more than the bare necessities.

I saw that video and immediately wondered what her bowling handicap was.

The kind of person who snaps, and their way of dealing with it is to throw a kid like a bag and, then bow up, to a pre-schooler, because of stress? No moral defense can be made for such a person.

From a legal and, intellectual standpoint, a perpetrator may, in many cases be offered a second chance to be of some other use to society. There can be justification to spank or strike a child... what really set off the alarm was the way this ...person... bowed up to a child the same way a bouncer treats a drunk or the way cops frequently treat black people. To act -that way- towards a child, after feloniously assaulting them, is permanently inexcusable.
