    Question Caregiver Accused Of Abuse Won't Be Prosecuted

    Maybe I'm off base, but this just can't be good:

    Caregiver Accused Of Abuse Won't Be Prosecuted

    POSTED: 7:28 am EDT August 27, 2008
    UPDATED: 8:50 am EDT August 27, 2008

    FREDERICK, Md. -- The Frederick County grand jury has decided against indicting a fired YMCA caregiver accused of abusing a 2-year-old boy, meaning she will not be prosecuted.

    Amanda Markoe, 21, was initially charged by police with felony abuse. When prosecutors advised the boy's mother -- Rebecca King -- that they planned to pursue only a misdemeanor charge, they said King insisted the grand jury hear the case.

    The grand jury chose not to indict Markoe for either a felony or a misdemeanor.

    State's Attorney Charlie Smith on Monday released a video recording of the alleged abuse. In the recording, Markoe is seen grabbing the boy by the arm and lifting him off the floor. She is also seen forcefully placing him onto a chair and making kicking motions toward him.

    Betwixt here and there.


    "Care" givers like that give the rest of us a seriously bad name! That IS abuse, pure and simple, and needs to be handled accordingly.

    Saw the video on the news. That bitch deserves to have someone rough her up just like she did to that little kid. You should get what you give, I don't care about gender.
