A horrifying video has emerged showing a daycare teacher instructing six of her students, all 4 years old, to throw rocks at a classmate to “teach him a lesson.” A woman was outside when she noticed a teacher telling one of the children to sit on the ground before telling the other kids to pelt him with rocks.

The incident at a daycare in Forrest City, Arkansas, according to a report by Fox 13, began after a 4-year-old picked up a handful of rocks and threw them on the ground, which was allegedly witnessed by the teacher.
To teach the child a lesson, the Teach N Tend Daycare teacher made the male child sit on the ground and then told the other students to hurl rocks at the boy.
The children listened to the teacher, and the video shows at least a half-dozen children hitting the kid with rocks.
When a woman saw what was occurring, she began filming the incident. The footage was provided to law enforcement.
“I observed approximately 6 toddlers throwing rocks at a white male toddler,” said an excerpt from the police report. “The toddler kneed down covering his face and crying. A background voice says, ‘He’ll learn to stop, ok that’s enough.’”
While speaking with police, the teacher told investigators that the children threw rocks all the time, but didn’t recall allowing any students to throw rocks at another child.
