Parents Trample Toddlers in Bloody Easter Egg Hunt Rampage in This State…
This will be known as the great Candy Riot of 2016. Connecticut liberals stormed the PEZ field during their annual Easter Egg Hunt all but yelling, Mine, Mine, Mine! They pushed children into the mud and left at least one toddler bloody. What kind of monstrous parents behave this way? This was an event for children – it was free to the public. More than a thousand people showed up and the adults didn’t even wait for the initial announcement to end before they descended on the field stealing all the eggs – over 9,000 of them. It was supposed to occur in three brackets and only for children… you had the toddler/little kids’ event, children probably from 6 to 8 and then the 9 to 12 year-olds. No adults were supposed to be any part of this. Of all the selfish, depraved behavior… and on Easter no less. Shameful.
From the Daily Mail:
An Easter egg hunt descended into chaos on Saturday after parents in Orange, Connecticut, stormed the field.
Children as young as four were trampled by adults in a rampage to steal buckets and grab as many of the 9,000 hidden eggs as possible from the third annual free event at the PEZ headquarters.
One four-year-old son was left ‘bloody’ on the sports field and a two-year-old girl was shoved into the mud, witnesses claimed.
A horrified parent described the scene as ‘an angry mob of chaos’ with ‘not one toddler hunting for eggs’ among the crowds of adults.
PEZ tried to make it right, offering free stuff after the event had devolved into chaos. But no one wanted to wait in long lines and the children were crying and traumatized. This was nothing more than an angry mob. This is what America is morphing into. ‘It was worse than being at Wal-Mart on Black Friday,’ parent Val McCormick wrote on the PEZ Facebook page on Saturday. She added: ‘My toddler that was standing with her brothers were shoved into the field and went with the flow. By that time it didn’t matter. I had to yell GO to my boys because it was like an angry mob of chaos. In the toddler field it was more of a greedy parent field. Not one toddler hunting for eggs. It was nuts. Way too many people and more than their staff could handle.’ Who behaves like this? ‘When it came time at like 10.30 am, the parents just bum-rushed that area,’ said West Haven resident Nicole Welch. ‘When my son left he had a broken basket and he was hysterically crying,’ Welch said. A grandparent wrote on Facebook: ‘My grandson ended up with a bloody from an ADULT in the 9-12 year old section knocking into him!!!!’ PEZ failed in controlling the situation. They should have had far more personnel there and security. People almost hit children as they madly drove out of the lot as well. PEZ tried to do a nice thing for children and the adults ruined it for everyone. This is so very un-American and very, very un-Christian.
