Daycare 'fight club' caught on camera — and now this mom is suing

A mother is suing a child care center after she claims her 4-year-old son was encouraged to fight another child in a “fight club”-style scenario. Nicole Merseal said her then 10-year-old son filmed video of his 4-year-old brother being repeatedly punched at Adventure Learning Centre in St Louis, Mo., in December 2016, FOX 2 reports.

Merseal claims that the day care centre organized a “fight club”, according to court documents. Video shows one child with a Hulk fist, a large green glove, on his right hand, punching another boy as he lies on the ground. A circle has formed around them, as adults, along with other children, watch.

Merseal told ABC News her 4-year-old was “very afraid” and had trouble understanding why his best friends were beating him up. “He just doesn’t understand why they punched him in the face,” Merseal said. “I don’t know any parent that could watch their children go through this and not be upset.” 
She added that the day that on which the event happened was her son’s birthday.

  1. It said that the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office “declined to prosecute.”..... yeah he needs to be brought up on charges of child endangerment himself along with those day care attendents… What other crimes against children has that POS declined to prosecute?
