Orlando, Fla - Security cameras caught a strange case of child abuse in a car wash bay at the Magical Car Wash in Orlando. They show a woman spraying a toddler with a high pressure hose while another woman watches. The footage shows the toddler attempt to run away, but she is grabbed and pinned to the wall as she is prayed on the legs, back and even her face. The manager of the car wash didn’t see the abuse until she watched the footage, but she did hear the little girl crying after the incident. She als heard the woman state, “You’re going to learn to respect me. You don’t treat me bad. You don’t mistreat me; I’m your mother.” Footage also shows the girl being stripped naked, while the two women grabbed a towel and put her back in the car. Once investigators locate the women, they said the mother will likely face child abuse charges.
Here is another case in which I cannot wait to post a mugshot. Hopefully of both women. Listen, it is no secret that I have spawn. Lord knows that there have been numerous occasions when I have wanted to physically wring their necks. A smart mouth here, an attitude there, magic marker on the new furniture, a cat on fire…but I have never, ever actually followed through with any of those flash anger moments that had me grinning with the prospect of bopping them in the head with a stick.
It is why my father waited an hour before spanking my ass for shoving dog shit in another kids ear. It is that cool off period that kept him from crossing the fine line between corporal punishment and abuse. To spank because you love the kid, or hitting them because you are pissed. Though I just cannot imagine what the hell that little girl could have possibly done to have a high pressure sprayer applied to her skin. I am going with absolutely nothing she could have done would warrant that type of asshole retaliation.
It makes me sick, as if she was my kid, she would be having a great childhood. But she is not. And she is now on our site. Kinda sad.
Here is some video from WESH News Channel 2′s report. You have to love local reporters. Aside from the anger you may get watching the little girl get sprayed in the face by an idiot, you will probably get a good chuckle out of field reporter Kendra Oestreich’s demonstration of just how powerful a high pressure washer is…by spraying an empty, plastic garbage can.
Thanks for the arrest info. I have been busy adding some things to the site (like your new editing capabilities) so I didn’t get a chance to update the story. But as was posted, the mother was arrested. Her name is Nikki Ramirez and she is pregnant. The child was initially checked out after Nikki called police herself. It was a form of punishment for the kid throwing a tantrum. No injuries were visible and the child was left with her. Until she was arrested on Friday for child abuse. I’m too tired to type out everything, so check out this video from WESH News Channel 2:
