You don't see anything wrong with some one FORCING another human being to KILL another living creature? Really?
You do realize that she made him kill his pet because he got a bad grade right? You do realize that this IS a very emotionally abusive thing to do,
You do realize that if we do not step in and help this boy, he very easily could become a very disturbed individual....
So let me ask you this... Since you have no problem with this mom forcing her son to kill his pet by smashing it with a hammer, because he got a bad
grade... What happens if we do not step in? Would it still be OK if she handed him a gun and forced him to kill a human? Or is that different? I guess
different animals have different values to you?
If we do nothing,What is the next punishment? Tell me? What is the next step up if forcing him to kill his hamster does not work? Does he then have to
be forced to kill a dog or cat? And if that does not work? Does he have to kill a person?
Where do you think we should draw the line?
Let's face it. Abuse is abuse, and this lady comited abuse on both the animal and her child. If she is capable of forcing her son to do this, she is
capable of a lot worse.
YOU are wrong. It is just that simple. You are wrong. This kid needed help and I am so glad he is getting it.
