There are some things that are undeniably evil. And beating on a defenseless old woman is one them.
As a father, I understand being frustrated with people who don't do what you want. I'm trying to explain something to a child and I get angry. He's crying because he wants to jam a knife in a socket, or walk off the edge of a high platform in the park, or dive headfirst behind the highest part of our couch and crash to the floor, possibly breaking his neck.
It could be frustrating dealing with someone who is constantly trying to hurt themselves. But at the end of the day, I remember that he's just a kid and am I really any better? I say I want to look like Zac Efron, but my love for Tostitos Lime and Oreos seem to contradict that want.
And this frustrated caregiver is clearly terrible at their job as she lets her emotions get the best of her and disgustingly beats on the woman she's supposed to help.
Memorial Village Police in Houston, Texas immediately put a warrant out for the arrest of Brenda Floyd, a caregiver who was caught on camera beating Alzheimer's patient Dorothy Bratten.
Sadly, Bratten cannot speak for herself and was being terrorized by Floyd for feeding a dog "people food."
Bratten's family saw that her body was covered in bruises and feared for the worst. So they set up a hidden camera in her home and the video footage confirmed their worst fears: the caretaker was beating on her.
Police originally released the video online in hopes of tracking down Floyd. The story soon went viral and people started calling in from all over.
"We have had people calling from across the state who know Ms. Floyd and have had contact with her. The story has obviously gone viral. We have received inquiries from as far away as the United Kingdom," said Memorial Villages Assistant Police Chief Ray Schultz - whas11
Thankfully, the caregiver is in custody and it doesn't look like she's going to be put in a position of power where can abuse people like that again. (h/t whas11)
