Wow… talk about one heck of a punishment!
Per a report out of Georgia, a fed up mom forced her 11-year-old son to strip naked at school after he was caught bullying a female classmate for the second time this academic year.
According to Sgt. Dana Pierce of the Cobb County Police Department, Joyce Sweetheart Cole was booked on November 1 for child cruelty charges after she enacted the intense and controversial punishment. The strict mom was later released on $5,000 dollars bail.
While Joyce had warned her son she’d “embarrass” him if he ever acted up again, staff at the school never expected her to humiliate him in such a drastic way.
“The meeting ends and the parent stripped the 11-year-old of his clothing and sent him on out to her car in the parking lot. The school’s staff, including several teachers, went to the 11-year-old’s aid, trying to clothe and cover him so he could avoid being embarrassed.”
How awful. We can’t even begin to imagine the young boy’s humiliation!
To make matters even worse, Cole was spotted smacking her son on the back of the head before instructing him to walk home nude:
“Just prior to arriving at their apartment complex, she again told him to get out of the car and he was told to walk home, into the apartment complex, without clothes on.”
Yeah, we think it’s safe to say Joyce took things too far…
Although — her son probably won’t be a bully again anytime soon!
So, what do YOU think of this punishment?
