A mother who hιt her child with a belt and her hands in a school parking lot was arrested by
police on Tuesday.
The girl told police that this is not the first time her mother had abυsed her.
According to the girl, her mother picked her up from Bishop Dunne Catholic School in Texas and a verbal confrontation between them quickly escalated to slαpping.
FOX 4 reports that the girl went back into the school and called 911 on her mother.
Shannetta Robinson says she was upset that her daughter missed her tutoring class.
Police say the girl told them she spotted a belt when she got in her mother’s car. Then, according to the daughter, Robinson “began to hιt the girl with the leather portion of the belt causing pain.”
The mother also allegedly told the girl that “she was grounded and that she could not use her cell phone, play sports or go outside.”
The girl suffered minor injuries, including “a cυt on her right temple and her left and right eye showed bloοd clots,” according to the affidavit.
After the incident the girl was placed in Child Protective Services.
Robinson, who took over half an hour to get back to the school after being contacted by officers, said she whιpped the child because “she was tired of dealing with the girl.”
The girl told police that her mother had also “taken all her furniture out of her bedroom and made her sleep on the floor as punishment.”
What do you think about this incident? Should the mother have been arrested?
