Monster Teacher Hits Toddler Over 20 Times; Act Caught On Camera

As a loving and caring mother, there is nothing more heartbreaking or sickening than watching your little one get hit several times by someone you thought you could trust. This is what happened to Ryane Lamb after watching footage of a 49-year-old daycare worker beating her son.

Lamb’s two-year-old son, Amari Lamb, can be seen trying to struggle away from the daycare worker as she hit his leg more than 20 times with a plastic back scratcher. He was struck so forcefully that his tiny leg was covered in welts.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the daycare worker dragged him across the floor and threw him on top of a changing table before hitting him again. In the video, another daycare worker can be seen watching the beating, but does not do anything to protect the boy from getting hurt.

It turns out that the second daycare worker wasn’t any nicer, as she was caught in the same security footage beating an 18-month-old girl with a plastic bat.

Ryane Lamb and her mother immediately brought Amari to the hospital to be examined and filed a police report against the two daycare employees. According to reports, the daycare’s administrator immediately terminated the two employees upon watching said footage.

“I’m  glad I have recorders to catch things like this because you just never know,” said Octavia Manuel. Manuel has been working hand-in-hand with police officers in an attempt to bring justice to the little victims.

Manuel shares that the “49-year-old woman seen on video beating Amari was tearful and remorseful during her termination. She expressed a desire to speak with the child’s  mother and explain herself.  She was not given that opportunity.”

While the second woman simply left without an explanation and is being hunted down by authorities. The 49-year-old, who has been identified as Melissa Tate, pleaded “not guilty to endangering children and her bond was set at $100,000. She was also referred for a psychiatric evaluation.”
