In a shocking case heard at Plymouth Magistrates Court, UK, four women are being tried for goading two toddlers, a boy aged 2 and a girl aged 3, to
fight. They all have admitted the charges, but one women was known to have said to Police "I didn't see any harm in toughening them up. I done the
same with my own children."
Footage of four women goading toddlers to fight has "stunned" police and social services in Devon.
The seven-minute footage, filmed at a house by one woman, was shown in a case at Plymouth Magistrates' Court.
In the clip, a boy wearing a nappy was called a "wimp" for not hitting a girl back after she struck him in the face.
The boy, aged two, is seen crying after being punched in the face by the three-year-old girl and is told by one of the four women in the room "not to
be a wimp or a faggot" and to hit her back.
The four women, all from the same family, are heard laughing as the toddlers are urged to keep on fighting.

Well, there I was defending the UK in the thread about the recent UNICEF report and then this turns up on the news.
There is a serious issue, especially in low income families, of parent's obviously being either incapable or unwilling to properly care for and
educate their children on how to be well-behaved.
While this is not the norm by any stretch of the imagination, the fact that people are out there doing things like this, or as in another recent case,
raping and murdering a 2 year old girl is absolutely disgusting.
But what can be done? With a generation of "Chav" parent's bringing their kid's up to be Chav's, or worse yet, performing horrible act's of
cruelty on their own offspring, this is a troubling trend.
