Jail Employees Forced Inmates to Listen to “Baby Shark” While Handcuffed Against The Wall
Three former jail employees are now facing charges after allegedly forcing some inmates to repeatedly listen to “Baby Shark”.
County Jail detention officers identified as Christian Miles and Gregory Butler as well as their supervisor Christopher Hendershott are now facing criminal charges after using “Baby Shark” song to punish some inmates.
Miles and Buttler reported handcuffed the inmates standing against the wall and played the popular song Baby Shark for as long as two hours on repeat. The dance craze has been played repeatedly through a computer and forced the inmates to listen to it.
Oklahoma County district attorney David Prater described the act of the policemen as cruel and inhumane. He said that the playing the song on repeat causes undue emotional stress to the inmates.
The court records said that at least two of the inmates experienced sleep disruption due to the punishment as many claims listening to the song while handcuffed wasn’t a bad punishment.
Lieutenant Hendershott also admitted that he failed to supervise and discipline the involved officers properly.
“Baby Shark” has been one of the most popular dance crazes in various countries all around the world. The song starts with “Baby shark, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo,” which captured the interest of young children.
