I keep asking myself - WHAT WAS SHE THINKING???

HOW in the hell do you get to that kind of conclusion - what depravity in her life led her to think this was an acceptable way to discipline her child???

Okay. I dared to open the article and read the caption below the photograph and scanned some article quickly (without exposing myself to details.)

The mother has been charged one count each of animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.

Child Protective Services were notified---who in turn notified the police.

The boy and his siblings are in DEFACS custody.

Thank God they took her children away from her!

This is pretty white-black clear matter. I don't think, anyone is going to justify the mother's behaviour.
She is quite a dumb ass.

I was about 15 when I killed a fish for a christmas dinner, first time in my life. I had to psych myself to do that. It was also my last time...

What next, the family dog? This mother is really twisted. I'm glad the children have been taken away.

Here's another link w/ some interesting comments of people who know the mom and are defending.

"She took the gerbil (yes, gerbil not hamster) out of the boy's room as punishment for not doing his school homework. The family cat got to the gerbil and killed it."

"The animal involved was a gerbil, not a hamster as reported. The 13 year old, soon to be 14 years not 12 years old as reported, did not bring home a report card, the teacher called Lynn at work and told her about his poor performance. Lynn has had many conferences and worked diligently over the years with this child's teachers to help him be a good student and a good human being. These are facts: Lynn is a mother who is very much involved with her children. She has helped the 13 year old with homework for years. He has had lots of extra toutoring after school and during the summers. He has even had special toutoring at Sylvan Learning Center in LaGrange. He is a child that has problems telling the truth. Some of us encourage our children not to spend time with him, because he lies so much."

"I agree that reports like this should NOT be taken lightly and the FACTS need to be found out...BUT I know Lynn and have worked with this kid (in a classroom atmosphere as a teacher) and I doubt HIGHLY that the alligations are true. This kid had major issues, I saw her as a loving and patient mom who struggled and worried over his behavior alot. In knowing the kid too, I felt sorry for the parents and thanked God I had normal kids."

I'm not sure what to think now, but hopefully the truth will come out.

Very interesting comments, I guess we will all have to wait for some semblance of truth. The one comment by a "teacher" had many grammatical errors, which I find strange. Sad story indeed.

Wtf is up with these parents? That punishment is very disturbing. Worse then the dad who had the kid destroy his Xbox.
