just being kids, being followers. I thought I was showing them this is not what you do. You do not steal people’s stuff-what they work hard for. I know how that feels, I’ve had my house broken into.”
Clearing we all got some sea, sand and soul searching ya think?
It’s reported that the eldest (13 year old) boy reported that the mom whipped them with an RCA extension cord-leaving them with bruises and scars.
District Attorney Hillar Moore released the following statement about the incident:
“Parents have the right and obligation to discipline and teach their children. We often time see children who have no parental authority or discipline which eventually results in delinquency and criminal acts. We need more parents who discipline their children. Surely you would expect a parent to discipline a child who is burglarizing other people’s homes as this could be a deadly encounter for the child. The degree of physical discipline will be reviewed. The law does not allow excessive pain or cruelty but does allow physical parental discipline. I only have the short synopsis which does indicate that the discipline resulted in marks on the child’s body and possibly an open wound. I will review all of the reports; meet with the DCFS office and review any history of this mother and her children to get a better picture of the entire family dynamics before making a decision. In the meantime my office is working with the juvenile court to ensure the speedy release of the mother under conditions satisfactory to the court.”
On the bright side, a GoFundMe and Plumfund account was set up to assist mom for expenses needed to get the boys something more constructive to do with their time and energy this summer while school is out.
Like I mentioned in this Young Jeezy article a while ago, this debate can go on and on as, chastising and punishing methods vary in conjunction with new laws meaning something altogether different for something that is traditionally a norm in many households—just as sure as her name is “Schaquana” and not “Susan.”
