If you thought that the not so secret fight clubs in prison were in poor taste, then you must have been appalled by the not so secret fight club at an elementary school. However a not so secret fight club at a day care is even more revolting.
We take you to New Jersey where two day care employees staged a fight club for young preschool children. Erica Kenny, 22, and Chanese White, 28, forced tots at the Lightbridge Academy in Cranford, N.J. to brawl against one another and even recorded video of the mini melees.
“Approximately a dozen boys and girls at the day care center can be seen in the video clips shoving each other to the ground and attempting to strike each other,” Union County Assistant Prosecutor Michael Sheets said.
Sheets also said that video evidence shows that the fights occurred on at least one day in mid-August, but they’re investigating if there was other incidents.
“In the video clips, Kenny can be heard referencing the activity as ‘Fight Club’ — quoting from the book and movie of the same name in encouraging the children to engage each other physically,” prosecutors say.
Management at the day care and prosecutors insist that none of the kids were injured at the Tyke Fight Club.
On August 17, the school sent parents an email that downplayed the incident. The message stated that employees “allowed, and at times, encouraged the children in the Khaki Kangaroo and Brown Bear classrooms to push and shove each other on the playground.” Everyone on the streets knows to steer clear of Khaki Kangaroo and Brown Bear rooms.
Kenny, a teacher’s aide, and White, a teacher, have both been fired and are facing criminal charges of fourth-degree child abuse. Kenny was also charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child. Third-degree crimes carry a maximum penalty of five years in state prison. Fourth-degree crimes carry a maximum 18-month sentence.
This seems like such a abhorrent thing to do to young, impressionable children. Not to mention it is boring as fuck. No offense to little kids, but they have zero strength and have the motor skills of Jello. No 4-year-old is throwing a blood-splattering haymaker and then incapacitating their victim by administering a vicious armbar. I wouldn’t even pay $99.99 to watch Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao dance around and hug, so why the fuck would you go to jail to see preschoolers do the same? And while it may appear that they are beating the snot out of each other, that snot was going to come out of their germ-riddled noses whether they got hit in the face or not.
Seems like the staffers broke a plethora of Fight Club rules. Not only did they break the first and second rule of Fight Club by talking about Tyke Fight Club, but they uploaded videos of the tot tussles to Snapchat. Plus they broke the fourth rule of Fight Club, only two guys to a fight, by having several children engage in fisticuffs in a battle royale.
I wonder if these despicable asswipes really got into the premise and devised their own set of rules for Tyke Fight Club
1st RULE: You do not talk about Tyke Fight Club to your mommy.
2nd RULE: You do not talk about Tyke Fight Club to your daddy.
3rd RULE: If someone says “Wah” or is crying for their mommy the fight is over.
4th RULE: Only children who know how to walk can fight.
5th RULE: No fights after snack time, Aiden puked up his PB&J Uncrustable last week after getting walloped in the tummy by Madson and it was a bitch to remove the vomit stains from the Toy Story carpet.
6th RULE: No blankies, no stuffed animals are allowed during the fight.
7th RULE: Fights will go on as long as they have to or until it’s nap time.
8th RULE: If this is your first day at Tyke Fight Club, you HAVE to fight.
