Five kindergarten teachers have been arrested over a viral video showing them scary little children wearing Halloween masks

Five daycare workers have been arrested and charged with criminal charges after a video showing them scary little children wearing Halloween masks went viral on the internet.

Parents and others were outraged by the video, which shows a worker wearing a scary mask scaring young children. At one point in the two-minute video, she chased one of the terrified children.

The video went viral with millions of views. It was taken on October 4th at Lil’ Blessings Daycare in the town of Hamilton, Mississippi.

Sheriff Kevin Crook of Monroe County, Mississippi said that four of the workers faced three counts of child abuse and a fifth worker was charged with two misdemeanors, including aggravated assault against a minor.

The owner of the center has not been charged and she said she was unaware of the incident until it happened. She also said this type of behavior will not be tolerated at the center and that four staff members have been fired over the incident.

Some of the parents defended the daycare despite their objections to what happened in the video.

“Was the situation that happened terrible? Absolutely,” Kimberly Smith told the Associated Press.

“But if this daycare is closed and others who are still here are slandered, absolutely not,” she added.

Another parent pointed out that it is the only daycare in the unincorporated community of Hamilton and it would be a real hardship for many parents to close it prematurely.

“A lot of people say, ‘Close it. Close it,’ but I don’t think they’re thinking about the impact that could have,” Chas Allen told the Monroe Journal.

But others were not so forgiving.

“I hope you enjoy prison,” said Katelyn Johnson, one of the mothers of one affected child. She said her 2-year-old son still has trouble sleeping at night and is showing signs of trauma.

“And I hope you realize what you’ve done. It’s serious, and it’s not a joke, and it’s not something to laugh about,” she concluded.

Here’s a local news report on the charges:
