A Staten Island nanny made national news this week, and it was not for her stellar job performance.
Mamura Nasirova, 52, was arrested Wednesday and charged with endangering a child after a hidden camera captured video of her slapping a 5-month-old baby girl left in her care, reports ABC News.
The video was captured when the baby’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roman Mardakhaev, became suspicious that something was going on. They set up a secret “nanny cam” inside their home in Grasmere on January 28, and the child’s mother viewed the abuse over a live feed and rushed home to confront the nanny. They showed the video to investigators, who still hold the nanny on $1,000 bail.
A neighbor said this was not the first time the nanny had been abusive, and that she had seen the woman dragging the child around before.
“I seen her one time, she just dragged them along. I said, ‘Don’t drag them like that.’ She said, ‘They don’t listen, you have to let them know who the boss is.'” Margaret Meekins said.
“You have to have the evidence, and there it is. There it is,” another neighbor said.
“The kids are too young to tell her, we are being slapped around. They’re too young,” Meekins said.
It is not known if the neighbor reported her concerns previously.
The video naturally has people talking.

I couldn’t finish watching. I’m a mom and this breaks my heart. I rather be broke than trust my children with nannies. Imagine she was getting paid to do that! I hope she rots in jail!

What a monster. You can almost measure the intolerance in her by the way her back literally enters into the slap and returns to its former position.. A real human barbarian. Parents please be careful.
Some people are suggesting, the nanny get a taste of her own medicine:
Poor little baby and the little girl on the sofa will remember that for longer, would love to give her a taste of her own medicine but no these sick fuckers are protected in prison then given a new identity to protect them?????? what about protecting the children what if they can’t afford to move house and they are stuck in a place where she knows where they are makes me sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
