Unlicensed Daycare Worker Accused of Abuse (Demo)

Uuuurgh.  People who abuse children are the WORST!!
A home daycare, known to be untidy and overrun with upwards of 15 children or more, has been shut down by the Maryland Department of Education Office of Childcare after Johnathan Cummings or Lanham was arrested on January 7th for abusing a 2 year old child in the care of this unlicensed daycare, located in Upper Marlboro.  According to news reports and the police, a witness captured a video of Johnathan Cummings kicking a two year old and alerted parents; Cummings later admitted to the assault.  Well duh.  What I want to know is who in the hot-ham-sandwiches (probably his Mama) let him “work” with small children?  He has a freakin criminal record.  Cummings was arrested on criminal charged for burglary and plead to misdemeanor charges related to alcohol in 2009.  Most recently, he has 12 active traffic related cases.  
Johnathan Cummings Record
From Prince George’s Police, “Cummings is charged with physical child abuse and second degree assault. Cummings, who admitted to kicking the child, has been released on a $35,000 bond.
