What is Wrong With People?

Generally speaking, I have very little use for people. They seem selfish and self-centered. I know this because we can smell our own.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A baby sitter who police say was caught on camera swatting, slapping and kicking a boy allegedly told an investigator she did it out of anger at his parents.

Police say that 53-year-old Jeannine Marie Campbell has been charged with battery on a child. She was arrested earlier this week and remains jailed on $75,000 bail.

It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.

Authorities say the boy’s parents told them they noticed a black eye on one of their two children about eight weeks ago, and Campbell couldn’t explain what happened.

They installed a hidden camera.

Authorities say the parents reported the abuse after watching the video.

The arrest report says she told an investigator she knew about the video, was mad at the parents and took it out on the child.

When I read the article, I thought that a 53 year old should know better. Once I saw the video, I didn’t care. An almost “senior citizen” gets angry and takes it out on a tiny child? Death by steamroller seems like an appropriate response.

KTLA Video Link Here. I don’t even know if the video has audio. It was turned down when I first saw it, and it was bad enough just seeing the abuse.
