    He made a stupid mistake as all children do and took a beating and was humiliated for it, I wonder how they feel about their stupid mistake .. I just want to grab him up and run away. 🙁

  4. This is just insane that was in no way shape or form abuse. I got whipped just like that when I was a child and I had done something wrong. I actually know the child and he is a great and wonderful kid however that discipline was quite necessary to make sure he understands the seriousness of lying, gangs, and street activity. Kudos to the parent and godparents for nipping a problem in the butt ahead of time!!! There needs to be more discipline just as this to stop all of the youth gang activity going on in the world today. When I was younger teachers and parents still practiced this form of disciplinary action and it was not considered abuse and back then there was not as much crime because of it.

  5. What a bunch of retards, and the tramp In that pic looks like a hairless teen wolf

    Looks like a whole lot of people are not agreeing with your way of thinking. You can go to multiple places where information like this article are posted and the majority are outraged, as am I because I have a copy of that video, at what took place. How about parents learn to be parents? How about teaching the boy right from wrong by example? When I was a kid and I was wrong, yes I got spanked. But 60 times with a belt? Not even close.

    Sandra, the problem is the taunting and humiliation done to this boy. I'm not a against a whipping but honestly how can he learn from that episode! Especially, the "boyfriend" heckling the whole time. It was ugly!

  12. R u seious??? The boy.was whooped over 60 times. He was bullied by 3 grown adults. Why did all 3 of them have to gang up on him? To get their point across? I hope they stay in prison.for a long time. That was just sicken.

  14. sandra the other problem I have with your post is that it sates you work in Child care. if you dont think that what happened to that boy is abuse then your a fool I certainly would not allow you to watch my child and I think anyone who does have you watching their child needs to think twice about it,

  24. This wasn't discipline, this was abuse. There Not teaching him anything. There breaking him. I just pray someone can build this baby back up before it's to late. All acting so ignorant, cursing, and mocking him on top of the beating. There was no love or trying to teach him right from wrong. Someone else needs to raise the kids because they don't know how! They deserve all they get!!
