Mother, Hot Sauce, and Jail?

There as a woman on Dr. Phil last year who submitted home video footage to the show so she could get help in disciplining her child. Well she pleaded not guilty to a child abuse  charge after that footage aired on the show which showed her forcing her 7-year-old son to drink peppery hot sauce after he misbehaved. She also made him take a cold shower as a punishment. It’s only hot sauce, and they shouldn’t be making such a big deal about this, but still, that doesn’t sound like a woman who should be taking care of children. What makes this a little worse is that the child was adopted fro Russia, which could make this case more complicated. Russian adoption authorities have been watching this case closely and if the woman is found guilty, the young boy (and his twin brother who was also adopted by the family) could be sent back to Russia. It’s sad to think that because of hot sauce, these two boys would have to leave the country. And what did they do to deserve that? Not a thing. Leave me comments and let me know what you think about this


  1. If you think that it is "only hot sauce, and they shouldn't be making such a big deal out of this," I think that we should make you drink hot sauce. Hot sauce contains capsaicin and other capsaicinoids which create a sensation of intense pain in large quantities; it's why hot sauce "burns" your mouth. Forcing an individual to drink hot sauce is a lot like forcing an individual to drink boiling water. It's going to hurt like holy hell - almost as bad as justice hurts child abusers.

  2. Alright, I see what you are saying. I shouldn't have said that it wasn't a big deal because it is, it's child abuse.
