Kiddie City Childcare Center in Vicksburg, MS is under fire after a nine year-old boy bullied and terrorized a room full of infants and toddlers.
Disturbing surveillance video of the young boy running rampant at the daycare center show him punch one little girl multiple times and then choking another child, patting her back as she cries in pain.
In another scene the young boy is shown violently shaking another young child and he even does what appears to be high kicks to the bodies of one child.
When asked about the child, Vinia Dolley, the boy’s aunt replied:
He bad. He fight but he don’t fight little babies. He do also have a problem. He take medicine every day and he just a normal child.
Jamie Williams, the 29 father of one of the little girls in the video, says his daughter came home for about a week with injuries, including a busted lip and a bite mark on her chin.
Williams told WLBT Thursday he got upset when daycare workers couldn’t give an explanation as to why his 1-year-old daughter was injured at the daycare Monday.
That’s when he slapped the child he thought was responsible. Police say it was the wrong kid and he was later arrested and charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor.
“I understand why Jamie Williams would be upset. However, even if he had attacked the nine year-old he still would have been arrested and it would have been just as wrong as him attacking the six year-old,” says Armstrong.
She’s charged with two counts of contributing to the neglect of a minor because she is in the room (or nearby) as all of the violence occurs.
“This nine year-old child, he was allowed to pretty much run rough shot over that entire room for a period of 15 to 20 minutes. All his actions went unnoticed,” says Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong.
The childcare center is still under investigation. The disposition of the 9 year old boy shown beating the kids in the Kiddie City video is unknown. His case is being handled through Warren County Youth Court.
