Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, District Attorney David Prater has charged two former detention officers and their supervisor with cruelty to a prisoner and conspiracy. Prater says the three forced inmates to listen to the song "Baby Shark" for extended periods of time. "It was unfortunate that I could not find a felony statute to fit this fact scenario," Prater said. "I would have preferred filing a felony on this behavior."

      “The inmates was forced to stand the entire time, hands cuffed behind them and secured to the wall, the investigation found.”

      That’s the problem. The song is just the hook for the story.
