      Memphis, TN

Please support this petition to get the state to permanently close down the doors to Kiddie City Childcare and learning center in Vicksburg, MS. After a horrific video went viral on the web showing a 9 year old child beating and kicking innocent babies with staff in their presence, this business has no BUSINESS being open, period. NO child should have to deal with this regardless of anything else going on. We have to put the needs of our children first and everybody knows they demand a wealth of attention. Parents taking their kids to a daycare center to be taken care of and this is the end result. Imagine if this center didnt have cameras recording? How many of those babies are traumautized and the parents cant understand why they are in fear at home? Children are our future, we cannot let them down, especially not to the hands of such violence when bullying is a major problem in our society. We will stand UP against this type of violence.


Although this petition states to close this particular business down, the overall goal of this petition is to advocate change for laws governing daycare centers and to prevent such actions from happening going forward. All daycenters should be required to have recording monitoring systems installed before a license is issued and in cases like these, where such blatentent abuse is noted, the license should be revoked, PERMANENTLY.

      This update keeps the supporters abreast of issues going on with this daycare center. As of right, per KTLA5, Vicksburg police are saying the child responsible for these acts will not be charged nor will the owner of the daycare center since she wasnt there. It is also reported that no action can be taken against the 9 year old because of state juvenile laws in Mississippi which require you to be 10 years old to be charged as a juvenile with a crime.
