Its not abuse

Scumbag parents all over the US will be pleased to know that they can now shave their child's head and have their genitalia pierced, then claim it was done to "save the child" without having to face criminal punishment. Especially if they do it in Naples Florida, and are lucky enough to have the same dumb ass jury that a 39-year-old woman, whose name is being withheld to protect her daughter's identity,did.

But, that lucky desision only works if you are the one ordering the piercing, not the piercer as Tammy Meredith (who did the piercing at the mothers request) was.

A woman who had her 13-year-old daughter's genitalia pierced to make it uncomfortable for her to have sex was acquitted of aggravated child abuse on Thursday.

The girl, now 16, had testified that her mother asked a friend in 2004 to shave the girl's head to make her unattractive to boys and later held her down for the piercing.

A jury deliberated for about three hours before deciding the mother's actions didn't involve punishment or malicious intent, or cause permanent damage or disfigurement.

Seriously folks, this mother did this because her daughter was having sex with her boyfriend, and she wanted to take a little anger out. Not on the boyfriend of course, but on the child.
