    Disturbing video shows high school cheerleaders screaming as they’re forced to do spl

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.76f5508cbe34


    Five high school officials in Denver were put*on administrative leave this week amid a*police investigation into several disturbing videos of*teenage*cheerleaders wailing in pain while apparently being forced to perform leg splits.

    The controversy that has engulfed East High School not even one week into the school year stems from pre-season practices organized by newly hired coach Ozell Williams, a*Guinness World Record holder*and former contestant on the NBC reality series*“America’s Got Talent.”

    The allegations involve at least eight young girls, according to*Denver’s NBC affiliate, KUSA. In one clip obtained by the station, a 13-year-old incoming freshman shrieks “please stop” nine times during a span of 24 seconds.

    [Warning: This video may upset*some viewers.]

    Jail. Real consequences time.

    A kid screams for you to stop, you stop. No matter how ridiculous you think they're being. Kick her off the squad if you think she's not dedicated enough. Jesus Christ.

    My husband was incensed watching that. I am not sue happy, but if that happened to my kid I'd be lawyering up.

    They damaged that girl's ligaments.

    I remember having stuff like that done when I was taking karate classes as a kid. It was all about "sucking it up" I got tired of the classes after a year or so because I was miserable
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    How anyone would think that is acceptable is infuriating!

    The videos, shot on a cell phone by two of the cheer team members, were sent anonymously to 9Wants to Know in August.
    Somebody thought it was messed up and wanted others to know

    I saw it on the ten o'clock news last night. The girl was beet red, crying copiously, and in agony. I think "torture" is a more accurate designation of the activity than the word "training".
