An Arkansas day care provider directed children to throw rocks at a boy for disobeying her, according to cell phone video of the incident.
Another employee went to Forest City police April 26 to report the incident, which she recorded on video and shared with officers, reported WHBQ-TV.
The woman told police that she and some co-workers were outside Teach N Tend Daycare with children when another employee told the child to sit down.
Instead, the 4-year-old picked up some rocks and threw them to the ground.
The employee then told children to throw rocks at the boy to teach him a lesson — and the video shows several children following her order.
“I observed approximately 6 toddlers throwing rocks at a white male toddler,” wrote an officer. “The toddler is kneed down covering his face crying. A background voice says, ‘He’ll learn to stop, ok that’s enough.'”
Police questioned the employee, who said children threw rocks all the time.
She told officers that she did not recall allowing children to throw rocks at another child.
The woman has not been arrested or charged, and the incident remains under investigation.

We’ll be learning bad stuff about Donald Trump for years
The media may not have to quit their addiction to President Donald Trump anytime soon.
The nature of presidential record-keeping, and Trump's habit of ripping up documents and making enemies of his staffers, should ensure a steady flow of shocking news about the Trump administration long after he finally leaves the White House, wrote journalist Timothy Noah for The Atlantic.
Trump baffled by vaccine hold-up because he has the ’emotional make-up of a small child’: CNN
Reporting on a planned White House task force meeting on Tuesday where FDA head Steven Hahn is expected to provide an update on the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, CNN's John Harwood said officials in the government are having to fend off a pestering Donald Trump.
According to CNN's Jim Sciutto, Trump is "upset" that the vaccine hasn't been released to the public yet because he doesn't understand the complexity of the massive public health project and why the FDA hasn't approved the vaccine's release.
"This is not the first time we've been concerned about the president interfering, perhaps with an eye towards politics, to the scientific questions about vaccine approval. What do we know?" Sciutto asked.
