Social Media / Snapchat FAIL!  NJ Daycare Workers are Arrested for Child Abuse after Staging a Toddler “Fight Club” ~ Snapchat Clips were Saved and Turned over to Prosecutors Social Media is all fun and… Scroll down to read more!

Social Media is all fun and nice… until your posts are admitted as evidence against you in a criminal prosecution.

Two (2) women, 22 y/o Erika Kenny and 28 y/o Chanese White, both (until recently) employed as teacher assistants at Lightbridge Academy Daycare Center in Cranford, New Jersey and neither of which I could find pictures of online, were arrested on Monday, August 31st, 2015 for allegedly staging a toddler “fight club” at the daycare center where they worked, inciting a dozen or so children aged four to six (4 – 6) to shove and hit each other, according to authorities.

The pair allegedly staged the fights on at least one day in August, but it is Kenny who is accused of recording on her cell phone and then sending a ten (10) second video clip of the children fighting from her cell phone to a group of her friends on Snapchat.

Apparently Kenny felt safe in publishing the video to her friends as the Snapchat app destroys content shortly after it is posted, but she failed to consider that some of her friends may have more sense than her, which at least one (1) did, saving the video clip and turning it over to prosecutors.

Both women have been charged with child abuse but Kenny was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.   Why?  Probably because Kenny can be heard on the clip referencing the preschoolers and kindergartners hitting and shoving each other to the ground as “Fight Club” and quoting from the movie.

None of the children suffered serious injuries, both women have been fired from the daycare center, White faces eighteen (18) months in prison and Kenny is looking at five (5) years.  Memo to the Folks:  Forgetting the danger involved to the kids, this is an excellent example of a) piss poor decision making in regard to the “use” of social media and b) proof positive that social media snafus can happen in any of a number of ways.  Please watch my Webisode on Social Media and the Law (you can click on the YouTube link below) and always remember that not only can “anything that you say be used against you” but that the same holds true for anything that you post….

Social Media:  It’s all fun and nice until it’s introduced into evidence against you in Court.  Please read “Haber’s Rules of Social Media # 1 – 5” by clicking here.
