Teacher Lifts Kid By Ears

Two kindergarten teachers suspected of mistreating pupils have been detained by local police in the city of Wenling, East China's Zhejiang Province Thursday, according to the official Sina Weibo account of the city's public security bureau.

A photo posted online Wednesday by a Weibo user and parent named "Jiangjiang" shows a screaming, bawling boy being lifted off the ground by a smiling teacher pulling on his ears.

The photo, which was taken about one month ago, has triggered public outrage.

Police in Wenling said Yan Yanhong, the 21-year-old teacher, had been detained for provocative and disturbing behavior. The other teacher who took the photo, surnamed Tong, was given a 7-day administrative detention.

Yan's personal blog contained other photos showing her mistreating children, including taping a child's mouth shut, putting pupils in trash bins, striping off their pants while dancing and forcing the children to kiss each other.

Yan, who had been working for the kindergarten for two years, told the local Wenling Daily that she was just playing with the children.

"I thought it was fun, so I pulled his ears and asked my coworker to take a photo. The 5-year-old boy was quite naughty and after the ear-pulling he didn't make any mistakes the rest of the day," Yan said.

Words do not escape me however. I would love to have that kid smiling up on my shoulders as I lift her by her ears.

"It was fun," I would sat when arrested.

That would certainly wipe that disgusting smile off her stupid face.

She has no teeth either. Maybe she got picked on a lot and became a teacher to exact revenge? Lots of child abusers come from being abused, ask any cop, catholic, or political figure.
