Three Fla. Day Care Employees Arrested After Walking Off the Job

Employees left more than a dozen children alone.


Just when you think you've heard it all, another ridiculous story surfaces. Three employees of a Florida day care center were arrested for leaving 13 children alone after walking off of the job for more than an hour. The owner of the business says the employees walked off because they were upset that a fellow employee had been fired for not having a proper child-care license. Michele Bell, Laqunda Hill and Laquanda King are all facing child-neglect charges. The oldest of the children was just 9 years old, while the youngest was 14 months old. In the words of Chris Rock, we don't advocate violence against these three, but we would understand.
