https://blog.seattlepi.com/hottopics/archives/237420.asp This was in my news paper today. This is a shortened version of the article (couldn't find the one I read online). It also mentioned in my newspaper that she also punishes him by forcing exercise. Her husband is a police officer, but aparently he is not being investigated, & none of her 5 children have been removed from her custody. Do you think she deserves the child abuse charge? It's only a misdameaner child abuse charge, I believe, and she wouldn't lose her kids over it. Personally, I think she deserves the charges. It's cruel to force exercise. cold showers, hot sauce, and soap in your child's mouth. There's much more humane and effective forms of disipline IMHO. She need's to learn that it's not okay -- and hopfully this will show her that some of her forms of discipline are not okay. -- Plus. This is what she did on video, on national television, to her child. If she's willing to treat her 7 year old like that on national TV .. what is she doing behind closed doors?
