Kindergarten teachers punished children by terrorizing them with Scream horror masks and filmed them

The case comes from the town of Hamilton, in the state of Mississippi, in the USA, where the four women were arrested by the police. To frame the same videos that were shot with the cell phone.

Four US kindergarten teachers have been accused of child abuse after discovering that to punish the little ones they frightened them by wearing Halloween masks similar to those of the character of the serial killer in the horror films “Scream”. The case comes from the town of Hamilton, in the state of Mississippi, in the USA, where the four women were arrested by the police last Wednesday.

Yesterday the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the three will go to trial on three counts each, along with their manager who must answer, however, for minor offenses related to the lack of surveillance. The owner of the nursery, who is not indicted, said she knew nothing of their methods and that the four employees have already been fired in light of the videos that frame them.

In fact, the case came to light thanks to some videos, recorded with a telephone by the same teachers, which were then shared on social networks at the beginning of October. The videos, shot between September and October, show the teachers wearing scary masks and screaming at the children who have not cleaned up or have not “done well”. In the videos we see the very frightened little ones crying, screaming, shaking or trying to escape while they are inside the kindergarten.

In one of the videos, a masked educator is seen approaching the faces of preschoolers and screaming inches from the faces of the terrified and crying children telling them that they had misbehaved. There are also children who cover their eyes and ears and tremble, others screaming and crying in despair.

“As a father and as a person who has great compassion for those who cannot defend themselves, I admit it has been very difficult to watch these videos,” said Monroe County Sheriff Kevin Crook who led the investigation. “It made my stomach ache to think of the terror those children were enduring,” he added, saying he was very upset by the videos.
