CHICAGO (CN) - Employees of an afterschool program forced little kids to fight and videotaped the fights on cell phones, two mothers claim in court.
The mothers sued Kidz Express, its president Duane Ehresman, executive director Douglas Lowe, and their employees Octavia Dillon and Rajai Moore, in Cook County Court.
Dillon and Moore forced the kids to fight and filmed it at Kidz Express, an afterschool program on the West Side of Chicago, the mothers say in the complaint.

Dillon and Moore "forced and required the minor plaintiff children, Melanie Currin, Keith Currin, Kale Currin and Asharee West, to engage in fighting amongst themselves and others, including the defendant Rajai Moore's sister, India Moore and his brother, Keith Moore," the complaint states.
This was on Oct. 13 and 14, 2011, according to the complaint.
"During the course of said fighting, the defendants, Octavia Dillon and Rajai Moore, made videos of the fighting using a cell phone," the complaint states.
Terrified residents at a Corpus Christi, Texas, state school for the mentally disabled were forced to be part of a brutal "fight club" operated by night shift employees, who made videos of the sessions with their cell phones, the newly released videos show.
One resident is seen on the video trying to run away from his attacker and a large group of employees and residents tracking him through the halls. When cornered, he wails and moans and tells the employees, "I will behave."

In any case, a really good reason to know where your children are,
and know who they are with. Anything short of that, you can expect trouble,
