Women encouraging toddlers to fight

It's a shocking story. Four women were in court the other day, on child cruelty charges, after film was found showing the women goading toddlers into fighting with each other.

In one scene, a three year old girl punches a two year old boy in the face. As he walks away crying, he is called 'a wimp, and a faggot' for not fighting back.

You cna read detail on the story over on the BBC website.

Even after arrest, the women appeared not to understand what they were doing was wrong, saying:
"I didn't see any harm in toughening them up. I done the same with my own children."

When you read such things you do really wonder about some people. What kind of family could they have grown up in themselves, that allows them to see no harm in these actions?
