So far, the woman in the video below isn’t facing any charges. As hard as it is to believe, this mom is treading water while authorities investigate. She might not be charged.
The video she posted of brutally shaming her young son because he voted for Trump in a school mock election went viral. It spurred an outcry on social media. It spurred an investigation by Texas authorities.
Here’s the video, in case you haven’t seen it. Warning, this is disturbing:
MOM: Since you voted for Donald Trump, you can get your sh** and get out. The suit case is packed by the door. Yeah, been packed since 10 this morning. Bye. And get your sign so when the people see you outside they know why you’re standing out there.
And it just gets worse from there as the young boy dissolves into hysterics.
Breitbart reported the mother is probably off the hook as her actions violated no laws and are not considered a crime:
The poor boy is crying hysterically but she leads him to the street curb with his suitcase and the sign saying he had been kicked out and why.
The video has gone viral and received over 10 million views in 24 hours after Friday, reported KHOU TV in Houston.
The YouTube video has received over 870, 650 shares as of Sunday morning.
The boy is now in the possession of Child Protective Services after the video came to the attention of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department.
KHOU reported that a detective said that the mother has apologized for the video but also said she was just joking.
Law enforcement authorities were reported to say that the video is disturbing but her actions are not a crime under the penal statutes.
In what world is this not abuse? It’s hard to believe a parent could mentally abuse a young child in such a way.
