Some very disturbing photographs began going viral on Monday night after they were posted to Facebook by a whistleblower who came upon them in one of her social media feeds and felt compelled to share them so that the culprits could be exposed. The suspects responsible for the upsetting images are a pair of Navy nurses who posted a horrifying Snapchat video. Viewers were livid when they saw what the nurses did to newborn babies, unbeknownst to the infants’ parents.
A pair of military nurses from Naval Hospital Jacksonville has been caught doing the unthinkable to newborn babies. In now-viral screenshots posted by Facebook user Denisa Shellito, the nurses can be seen giving a baby the middle finger, labeling it a “mini Satan,” and making another infant dance to rap music.
“I’m just sharing someone’s post in hopes that these childish girls get reprimanded and lose their jobs,” Shellito wrote on Facebook. Then, she pasted the following status on her page:
“A girl I went to high school with is a navy nurse and this is how her and her shitty friend treat the babies that have just been born. My blood is literally boiling and I want to snitch bc that is someone’s child. The first pic is her friend who is making the baby dance and she’s playing rap music in the background. I’m LIVID and I’m snitching bc she should get fired from her job but idk how to go about it. Pissed isn’t even the words.”
“They work at the naval hospital in Jacksonville, FL. Call, email, do whatever it takes to get through to administration!!” added Shellito. Another Facebook user named Michaela Callahan was able to identify the nurses as Allyson Jeanette Thompson and Joanie Barrett.
Shellito’s post was shared 100,000 times in just the first few hours. Shortly after the disturbing images surfaced on Monday night, Naval Hospital Jacksonville released a statement from the Commanding Officer, which read:
“We are aware of a video / photo posted online. It’s outrageous, unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and cannot be tolerated. We have identified the staff members involved. They have been removed from patient care and they will be handled by the legal system and military justice. We’re in the process of notifying the patient’s parents.”
Thompson and Barrett should be dishonorably discharged from the military. Furthermore, they should never be allowed to practice medicine again. Frankly, these women shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near children at all. They knew what they were doing was wrong, which is precisely why they posted their disturbing videos to Snapchat, where they thought the content would disappear forever. Luckily, they were wrong, and now, the whole world knows the truth.
