Man confronts nanny after catching her on camera ‘hitting crying young boy in the FACE with a tablet’ [Video]

I’m a firm believer in discipline… spanking has its place. This is not that at all – this is outright abuse and this woman was caught in the act. This child looks like he is one or two, if that. She yanked the child out of Kohl’s by the hair. Then after she puts him in his car seat, she reaches behind the crying child and gets her tablet, then hits the child deliberately in the face with it. The child puts his hands to his face crying harder and you can almost feel how much that hurt. I didn’t see any blood, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t any. This woman is a monster.

From the Daily Mail:

A California woman was arrested after a video was posted on YouTube that showed her striking a young, crying child in the face with what appeared to be a iPad-like tablet.

Yvonne Camargo, 39, of Victorville, was arrested on suspicion of willful cruelty to a child on April 3 but it is unknown as to if she was charged.

The video was filmed April 1 in a parking lot after a man identifying as Edward Moneyhanz on Youtube saw the woman ‘pulling this kid by his hair out of the khols store’, according to the posting’s description.

The woman can be seen wiping the young boy’s face as he cries. She loads him into the back seat of a Chevrolet sedan, where he continues to cry.

She then reaches behind him, grabs the tablet and hits him in the face. The boy screams and grabs his face with his hands.

The woman is oblivious to the fact that she is being filmed until the cameraman and another woman begin asking her what she’s doing.

‘Hey, why are you hitting that kid like that?’ the man asks. ‘Why are you hitting that little baby?’

The woman off camera says that Camargo could go to jail before questioning her actions.

‘Hitting a f****** innocent kid that can’t protect themselves,’ she says. ‘How do you feel hitting a kid?’

Camargo does not respond, but instead gets into her car and the cameraman gets a shot of the license plate so she can later be identified.

If this was my nanny, she wouldn’t just be fired, I’d file charges. She was in jail, but no word if charges were filed. I can’t imagine hurting a child like this no matter how much they were crying or how big a fit was being thrown. Her problem is she was caught on camera by someone who confronted her. She didn’t have much to say. The video was posted on YouTube and it led to her arrest. This is just criminal and you just know she’ll do it again. There should be a blacklist for nannies like this, so others can be warned. Because it is a very small step from abuse like this to killing a child and the parents are tragically the last to know when it is too late.
