Dayton Public Schools officials fired a staff member for physically assaulting a nonverbal and autistic 3-year-old who attends Rosa Park Early Learning Center.
The employee in the video hit the child so hard it caused him to smack the ground then he proceeded to pick him up by his feet and carry him upside down.
The child’s parents notified authorities on August 21st and are demanding immediate action to take place. The boy’s father, Robert Tootle, claims when he went to pick his child up he wasn’t told the full story of what went down. but was later informed by Child Protective Services of the details seen in the video given to the family on Sept. 11. “It just made me mad,”
Tootle explained to WHIO TV 7. Tootle and Taneshia Lindsay, the boy’s mother, and their attorney, Michael Wright are trying to figure out why an arrest hasn’t been made yet. “They shouldn’t have sent him home pending investigation. He should have left that school in handcuffs,” Lindsay said.
