    TX: Parents blacken 7-year-olds eye, beat him in head with high heels for bad behavi

    http://www.khou.com/news/local/HPD--...200915291.html

    A 7-year-old boy suffered horrific abuse at the hands of his father and stepmother for getting in trouble at school. His parents gave him black eyes and beat him in the head with high-heeled shoes as a form of punishment, according to the Houston Police Department.
    The boys father, Christopher Burrell, and his stepmother, Savannah Johnson, were both charged with felony injury to a child.
    I fell horrible for this boy and his sister.

    Poor child. He was also beat with a ruler and the ever dreaded weapon of choice? The extension cord.

    The poor sister. She didn't feel safe in her home. Witnessed drug use, and had to see her brother beaten.

    Too bad adults can't experience the sort of "discipline" they recognize as punishment for their crime.
