That is child abuse, The center should be closed until the investagion is complete. To Protect all the children. It reminds me of a case where a boyfriend of a woman poured black pepper down a childs throat, causing his death. That is not punishment, it is a horrible criminal act. Child protection needs to take this seriously and act strong and close the doors. As a single parent that struggled to pay every bill, I rather find another day care then have my children in a unsafe place. If my children had that happen to them I would have to take a baseball bat to the person and show them what real punishment was like. what a POS to do such a thing. Why did they not call the parents instead?

This was not punishment, it was cruelty. I will bet it was not the policy of the institution but the brain child of a worker there! Should be strung out and fed the stuff in a proportionately larger dose to understand the results.

They would have been better off spanking the kids. But by golly, heaven forbids any physical contacts
on these spoiled kids today!!!
In plain words, there is no discipline in kids today.

Eddie,
If a child is going to be spanked it should be done by parents not daycare providers. Parents pay for these people to take care of their kids while they are at work. The daycare has a choice whether or not they want to continue providing care. I hope justice is served for these heartless people who have no regard for children at all. Crimes against children deserve more then some prison time and probation. Stone em, give em a few lashings....
