Hi Friends, I hope I did the right thing I was in the store last night and this lady just kept yelling and hitting her little boy he looked to be about 3 or 4 years old he was in a shoping cart and he kept reaching for things as they will do and the mother just kept slapping him across the head. She hit him so hard she almost knocked him out of the cart. She ask me what the hell I was looking at and I said a lady making a ass of herself. She called me a few names and kept right on shopping. I don't know why but I stayed close by and watched her I took a picture of her on my phone. And the next thing I see is this boys noise bleeding she had hit in right across has face so hard his noise was bleeding at that point I lost it and told her if she hits that boy again that I would show her want it feels like. She told me to mind my own buss. and fu------- off. So I felt the best thing I could do is call the police on this lady they came took down what I said and they talked to the child call the EMS for the boy. And took the lady away. The boy was crying for his mommy. At that point I felt bad and now I wonder if I did the right thing. I have sean things like this before where the child was abused . This happened to my oldest daughter with a lady hitting her child in a food store and it turned out she was a child abuser and had been reported meny times for hitting her child and she ended up going to jail but in this case the child will never walk again do to the mom kicking the child in the lower spine. This is sick how in gods name can a mother do that to there own child. I would die for my children. Anyway I hope that this boy will be ok and that his mom is not someone who does this on a everyday bases but even one time is to much. I can only pray that deep down she is a good mom. I am sure if it goes to court I will then know if it was the right thing to do I guess I just did not want to take a chance on that boys life and just do nothing.
