Okemah, OK — Two daycare workers in Oklahoma are facing child abuse charges after they were caught on tape feeding habanero hot sauce to a 13-month-old boy, then laughing at him as he cried in pain.

Rosie Hicks, 49, and Tracy Owens, 36, were arrested after Department of Human Services workers informed police that they had received a report of a boy being abused at the Muscogee Creek Nation Child Development Center.

Investigators were able to retrieve surveillance video from the day care that captured the two workers intentionally putting  habanero sauce into a child’s lunch and then feeding it to him as he sat in a high chair. Shortly after the boy starts eating, he begins crying from the pain while Hicks can be seen laughing.

After both women were brought in to be interviewed by police, Owens would admit that she bought the bottle of habanero hot sauce at the request of Hicks and watched as her co-worker put some of the hot sauce into the boy’s lunch before Owens put the plate in front of the boy.

Rosie Hicks would admit to giving the boy the hot sauce and laughing while he cried, saying she knew it was wrong but that she did it “because of the stress she was under at work.” She also admitted to making the boy fall while he was holding on to a table and didn’t apologize afterwards or help him get up.

Both Tracey Owens and Rosie Hicks were arrested and charged with felony child abuse. Owens was released on $10,000 bail and Hicks was released on $20,000 bail.

    First off: I hope they get an uncapped bottle of motherfucking hot sauce up their cooters while everyone laughs & they are hanged by their legs.

    Second: I betcha the kid wasn’t Mexican or Indian. That shit wouldn’t have fazed (sp??) them one bit.

  • CT

     That is the EXACT same place I was thinking. 

  • CT

    Stupid fucking bitch – let me catch someone being a dick like that to my kid and jail is going to be the least of their worries.  It takes a totally worthless twat to pick on a 13 month old kid.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    How much does anyone want to bet that the necklace around her neck is a crucifix? 

  • annagg

    Why was that kid singled out, i wonder? I wonder if he was a little monster, ir if they hated his mother or father? It is just stupid and mean.

    We gave our kids dill pickle and green olives and lemon wedges around that age to see what they would do.

  • newstarshipsmell ™

    Well, considering her accomplice is wearing a JESUS DREAM TEAM t-shirt, I’d say the crucifix bet is a safe one.

  • annagg

    My youngest ate the lemon, my two oldest loved the green olives and my middle child ate flamin hot cheetos when she was that age, and loved them. But i didnt give them to her, she was at my friends house and sneaked them.

  • sugarpie

    Ignorent bitches.  If it were my kid, I would be the one on DD for some personal justice. 

  • What kind of assholes sit around and come up with doing this shit, all to get a cackle. I’d like to smear some of that stuff in their eyes.

  • Wow, had that been my nephew….Oooh!  They would have drank a few gallons of Habanero sauce and castor oil.

    Low-life scumbag douche-nozzels.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    My oldest nephew loved tart and sour fruits like lemons and limes when he was a toddler and, of all things, raw onions and minced fresh garlic. I think it’s because they don’t have a highly developed sense of taste at those ages. He hasn’t eaten anything like that since about three.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I would think one would be busy all day taking care of several children and babies, too busy for shit like this.

  • Athena

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with experimenting like that.  American parents seem to be afraid of flavor as it pertains to their children.  My child eats anything I’m eating that she’s interested in, and this has included (small amounts) of horseradish, Chinese mustard, etc.  If she doesn’t like it, she doesn’t take another bite.

    The difference is, I never offer it maliciously.  But there’s nothing wrong with raising a child with some spice.

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    “Owens would admit that she bought the bottle of habanero hot sauce at the request of Hicks”

    At what point does one not ask himself or herself that by doing this, only trouble will result.

  • Valerie

    I have heard of that “punishment” used on children before, I can’t believe anyone would do that to a child. The worst I have done was used “bite medicine” on my 3 year old (a tiny amount of vinegar that she was allowed to immediately spit out). It took two doses and she never bit again. My 2 year old son loves spicy stuff, so he would probably eat it willingly.

  •  Years ago, my mom rubbed Bengay in her eye by mistake (of course). She was sort of in pain, but not really, and so it made it kind of funny…..Just kind of “to cold” to open her eye……………she laughed too, so that made it okay..These bitches are just trying to be cruel and unusual. Bitter cows!

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess she’s not on Jesus’s dream team.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    More like Jesus’s nightmare team.  From what I’ve read in the Bible, he did not like people who hurt children.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Big ol bullies. Pick on someone YOUR OWN size!

  • fiendgrl

    Ugh, my kids went to that daycare when I was slumming in Okemah. Bitches!

  • kimbev69

    My daughter loves everything she gets a rash from carrots and tomatoe sauce but loves them so much we just have to changer her quickly after she goes #2 lol

    <—– my little gangster

  • kimbev69

    My hubby insisted on a daycare in the church he used to belong to, after the first month the woman in charge argued with me over diapers i knew she was trouble, anyway show up to take her early and she is covered in hard crusty chex cereal dried up on her little leggings scratching into her legs, final straw finally to convince hubby to change he went to pick livy up after they called saying she has 102.6 fever, he got there and she was burning up, he asked if they gave her meds they insisted i never gave them any, he went to the nirses office where they found our still sealed box, so it was the 2nd time, cps considered it medical neglect since febrile seizures run in my family and they were made aware

  • ultracreep

    Honestly, tales like these were why I stayed home with my children, even though it was a fairly severe financial hardship to do so. I just couldn’t trust other people with my little ones.  (p.s. I know some people have absolutely no choice but to use daycare and I hope they managed to find good ones.)

  • ultracreep

     Agreed. I was started on “trying” bits of pepper at 2 or 3. They were only touched to my tongue though, not force fed to me. If they really want it, give them a bit and see, but no use forcing it on them.

  • ultracreep

     Me and my son both got a face rash from tomatoes and citrus fruit, but luckily we outgrew it.

  • ultracreep

     omg…I looooove flamin’ hot cheetos. A child after my own heart.

  • onlyme356

    What a fucking bitch! Someone needs to stick that bottle of hot sauce right into her ass!! This makes me so mad, if it were my child, I would have kicked her ass. A couple of days in jail would be so worth it.

  • As someone who worked with female prisoners I know for a fact these women will be prison bitches. Even the cold blooded murderers in prison hate child abusers. I, for one, am happy these woman get to be on the receiving end of some prison lovin.

  • neenaP

    He is 13 months he cant much of a monster hes still a baby . 

  • Lena60

    I agree with you Athena, unfortunately these  cruel bitches did this , to hurt the baby, not because they were concerned with him having a variety in food choices.

  • BluExtacy

    Heidi loves spicy food like omg

  • They should be made to douche with the habanero sauce.

  • sherrdbw

    That’s what I was thinking. Put some hot sauce in their eyes and then sit around, point and laugh at them. We’ll see how funny those two sadistic, fucking bitches think it is then. 

  • sherrdbw

    I’ve noticed that putting hot sauce in a child’s mouth for punishment isn’t that uncommon. I guess people think that it is an OK punishment since it is only temporary and doesn’t leave marks. And it’s apparently funny.

  • RydoLarsson

    should tie them up and force feed them horse cum and laugh at them while they cry

  • kimbev69

    Huh i wonder if she gets the red cheeks from certain foods
