When the child chucked the cookie jar at the employee it was all she could handle.belt spanking

An employee at a dollar store in Georgia was arrested after she whipped an 8 year-old boy who threw a cookie jar at her.
Online Athens reported:

A dollar store employee has been arrested for simple battery after whipping a customer’s child with a belt.

WMAZ-TV (http://on.wmaz.com/WGbiFw ) reports surveillance cameras inside a Wrightsville dollar store recorded an 8-year-old boy running around the store and eventually throwing a cookie jar at 39-year-old Emilia Graciela Bell.

Authorities say Bell took off her belt, chased the boy down and spanked him behind the counter.

The boy’s father called police and Bell was taken into custody. Police said she was free on bond Friday.

    she should sue the father for bringing his spoiled brat into the store.

    Please take it to a jury trial I am sitting on…..she’d walk in a freaking HEARTBEAT.

    Using a belt was a little much. I received my share of much deserved spankings growing up, but never with anything but my dad’s hand. Parents today don’t seem interested in controlling their little brats. If either one of our sons behaved like that, they would have received a whoppin’ from me or their father and made to apologize to the employee and anyone else who witnessed such disgusting behavior. If the object thrown was damaged in any way, they would have had to pay for it out of their meager allowance.

  • bigkahuna

    While it was probably overboard to whip the kid…the parent should have thanked them not called police.

    Got it. Assault and battery on an 8 year is now OK.

    What is wrong with you people? An 8 year for God’s sake. And how do you know the 8 year old even is in touch enough to know right from wrong?

    You do know that sometimes ill behaved children are not capable of knowing the difference, right?

  • AlphaDog

    She should have beat the dad with the belt.

  • zip

    Charge the parents for the kid ransacking the place and physical harm to the clerk. Isn’t ‘throwing’ something at someone an assault? Better the kid learn now.
    The parents are to blame for not ‘raising’ their kid to be respectful and courteous!
    A lower standard of carnal living.

  • GrammarDiva

    JHarp, you’re kidding, right? Or are you being sarcastic? I can’t tell.

    Unless the kid was mentally handicapped in any way, he should have known right from wrong. And if he didn’t, it’s the parent’s fault. I might not have spanked the kid, but I’d have gotten ahold of him and made sure he knew, and the parent, too.

    I got spanked when I was a kid. Not with a belt, but with my dad’s hand. He only had to do that once or twice and I figured out right from wrong VERY quickly.

  • Franklin Amman

    jharp,

    Your entertainment value today has been great.

    Pls keep it up. Public schooling has done wonders for you.

    LOL,

  • Granny

    I’m sorry. I don’t condone taking a belt to my own children (not a one of them is or was a mannerless juvenile delinquent), never mind somebody else’s child.

    I would never have allowed my child to run the store in the first place, but if I had done so I absolutely would have pressed charges against anyone who whipped my child. After I got done beating them myself.

    The Dollar Store employee should have simply asked the father to leave when the child first became out of control and called the police if he didn’t.

  • Smarty

    Maybe the dad needs to tell us about how well he was supervising his kid- or was he smoking crack outside of the store?

  • RealMc

    Thanks #9 February 2, 2013 at 4:15 pm GrammarDiva

    and for the readers here:

    Jharp is the “timeout” type no doubt. Can’t DARE let little Johnny have any kind of responsibility for his actions, after all, it’s not HIS fault he’s a little hellion, he’s just a product of the failure of society as a whole…….right…..yeah, right.

    Wait a few years, we’ll see the product of what I often refer to as “the time out generation”…..more “occupy” unwashed dregs no doubt.

    Whip his arse I say, and if it takes a belt, fine and it can most definitely be accomplished without being “Assault and battery on an 8 year old”. I know. I am the product of that “horrid” type of upbringing and so are my kids.

    And as “luck” would have it we are all productive, self sufficient, tax-paying, law-abiding members of our society today.

    And for the record, I ain’t had to have my arse whipped in a long time. I do understand there are consequences to ones actions and that responsibility lays with the one undertaking such actions………at least since I was 8. Kindergarten back in the day used to teach that.

    So, “jharp”, keep on harping and Have a Nice Day……and you damned straight she’d walk, in a New York minute!!!

  • wtd

    From the WMAZ link:

    “The boy’s mother and sister, who were also in the store, did not witness the spanking, according to the chief.”

    The child’s mother AND father were in the store and apparently permitted that child’s unruly behavior to proceed unabated.

  • Sasja

    At 8 years, a child should know right from wrong. If not, it’s the parents who are at fault.

  • http://holgerawakens.blogspot.com Holger Awakens

    Breaking: Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has announced legislation she will introduce on Monday that would ban the manufacture and sale of belts exceeding the length of 45 inches and exceeding a width of 2.5 inches. Feinstein was quoted as saying, “Belt violence will not go away on its own. We need to act.”

  • Sasja

    We also had time outs, but back then you had to stand facing the wall to think about why you received the spanking.

  • http://none.com mrburns

    One of Jharp’s children appear before the court : Yes I drove that car all around the town and ran down the officer that tried to stop me, but it’s Ok because I didnt think that was wrong. Jharp will tell you that . And I just went poopy here on this big raised chair, and thats OK too because jharp never taught me about toilets and such . I am just a big happy 16 year old doing whatever I want, so screw you and dont you dare touch me or jharp will sue your ass. The jharp generation – subhuman and proud of it.

  • Chas

    The kid could grow up to be an OWSer throwing molotov cocktails at cops in the street, so Holder’s Just Us Department will file a civil rights suit against the store clerk.

    And you know he wasn’t how? Got it. You have no idea.

    And if a stranger took a belt to my 8 year old he’d be lucky if all he got was arrested.

  • bigkahuna

    JHarpon and on

    First the brat had it coming and second it was a belt for gods sake not a club.

    third the father should be beaten or whipped followed up by you. Its you pathetic lazy @ss liberals who are sucking the life out of this country.

    We have 47% of the country who are time outters….they do nothing and expect everything for free. Its always what can you give me not what can I earn ?

    If I knew it was your kid….unlikely since you are a flaming idiot too stupid to breed… I would warn him his father was a moron and tell him to run as far away as he can to get away from such a douche. You should be locked up for child abuse for breeding if so. Go play in traffic.

  • Sasja

    How about a 6-year-old child with a pacifier held between his teeth, screaming as loud as he can because mommy won’t let him have a candy bar. We were unfortunate enough to witness that at a local grocery store. Mommy just let him scream for awhile, then relented and bought him the candy. Maybe that was jharp. What was more disgusting was seeing a kid that big (and he was not skinny) sucking on a pacifier.

    I will let my neighbors, parents of an 8 year old autistic boy who struggles with what is right and what is wrong, that is their fault that their son behaves badly at times.

    What is wrong with you people?

    You don’t touch another persons child in anger unless serious safety concearns exist. That being said, I would have tore my childs ass up. Then again, they know that which is why they don’t pull that crap.

    No way in heck is an adult stranger whippin my kid. A teacher or a principal, ok, but not some store employee. If I were on my best behavior I’d have called the cops, if not they would have had to.

  • jharp

    What was needed was for the 8 year to be packing heat.

    And trained to use on anyone who might try to assault him, right?

    Or arm the dollar store employee so he can “stand his ground” and not be assaulted by an 8 year with a cookie jar, right?

    Just blow the kids brains out. That’ll teach him a lesson.

  • NoResolution

    I wonder what else the 8 year old throws at his mom?

    Whipping..Big deal you wusses. I was whipped as a child in the 50’s and I learned some manners. Just a spanking..Not like Iran where they stone or whip you to death. We are Rome 200 AD and the Huns (Barbarians) are at the gate and we’re worrying about this?

  • bigkahuna

    I was kidding Jharp.
    I was glad to see someone actually stand up and discipline the kid since he was in public in a store and being brat.

    I see its ok for Obama to tell us all what to eat, drink, smoke, shoot or buy ( health insurance) but its horrible for a store clerk to discipline a 8 year old brat who’s parent wasnt do their job….

    I see how it works now…

    Liberals get to decide everything and klnow best. What a total joke.

    I hate belts on children. She used a belt, so she wouldn’t hurt her hand or be accused of laying a hand on the child. I would have taken her belt and beat her backside with it, and if she gave me any lip, I would have bust hers.

  • Rich

    Lots of wrongs here.
    Cops should have not pressed charges or been involved.

    Parents of the kid are obviously making child rearing mistakes daily.

    Employee should not have touched the kid.
    The kid doesn’t know right from wrong and is one the path to be an inmate somewhere.
    Finally the news media should publish the names of all involved since all have behaved badly and a public shaming is called for.

  • Moanne

  • Big Al

    Yeah well, she shouldn’t have touched the kid….she should have gone to town on the father.

    This crap all started back in the early sixties with all the Dr Spock stuff. Seems that our society has been going downhill ever since. A “beating” does not have to be abusive and to equate it with abuse means the battle is lost. children need to be corrected and sometimes it isn’t easy but done with love and consistency it will result in a better citizen.

  • Granny

    #44 Big Al –

    Except that a STRANGER is NOT a parent. Whether or not to use corporal punishment on a child, which is illegal in some states these days, is rightfully the parent’s decision. There isn’t a single soul here who would not be absolutely LIVID if some stranger walked up to their child and beat him with a belt.

  • Amalgamated Cliff Divers, Local 157

    She should have called the police, and pressed charges for assault. He!!, schools do it all the time for a lot less. It’s the only way to deal with these types of problems.

    Parents, if you have a misbehaving child, it’s best to no unleash your child on the general public.

  • myohmy

    She should charge that boy with assault.

  • jharp

    #46 and #47

    She should have shot him as she was clearly within her rights to do to stop an assault. Or the 8 year old should have shot her for assaulting him with the belt.

    Too bad they weren’t both armed. This would have been settled long ago. Shootout at the dollar store. Just what we need.

  • Sasja

    I guess I have to be more precise because jharp is too stupid to realize I was not talking about some poor child who is autistic. (You know, he does this to get attention and to be contrary).

  • Sarah

    Jharp, if the kid has some sort of disability, I expect the parents to keep their kid glued to their side and remove them from the store if they have a melt down.

    Since they allowed the kid free reign, they shouldn’t be surprised if someone else steps in to do what they should have done years ago.

    I witnessed a similar incident in the parking lot of Mid Rivers Mall. A lady was taking a belt to a kid who appeared to be about 8 years old. My friend said “this is child abuse, I will put a stop to this now”. I said, “this is none of our business, please stay out of it” but he didnt listen. When he approached the mother and started speaking his mind, she took the belt and started whipping him. You should have seen the look on his face while he was running for his life. Bottom line, spare the rod spoil the child.

  • John03

    If something like that had happened to me as a child my I wouldn’t want my Dad to find out. He wouldn’t have called the cops but would have finished the job right for the store clerk.

  • Patty

    No matter how unruly, this was not her child and she should have gotten on the P.A. and called for the father of the child to take control of his child.

    The state has taken parents rights to discipline their children away …that being said, strangers should not be spanking or using a belt on someone’s else child period ,even if child is behaving like brat.

  • thescribbler

    When I was growing up, I am 51, my parents didn’t need to raise a belt or their hand to me. All I needed was “the look”. I perfected it when raising my son and have used it on many a child in my day. Hell, I use it on adults…. They have laws for pets, you are suppose to have them under your control at all times. Seems to me that’s the least a person can do with their children, have control of them. Not only for the safety of everyone around them, but for the children themselves. I don’t think that the clerk should have ‘whipped’ the child, but I can see how maybe it was the last straw for her and she reacted before thinking.

  • dries

    I recall seeing this at the window, or the door of a NYC store – “Unattended children will be sold as slaves.”

    Parents out to be made responsible for bad behavior of their spawn too.

  • Patty

    The boy’s mother and sister, who were also in the store, did not witness the spanking, according to the chief.

    The chief says Bell was immediately arrested and admitted to investigators what she did.

    Sterling said after consulting with other law enforcement leaders, they charged Bell with simple battery. She was taken to jail and bonded out Friday morning, he said.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And where were they when boy was running down the isles and throwing cookie jars.

    Btw, I was in the dollar store the other day and 3 young boys were there alone. The smallest of the three fell on the floor very hard he was running through the store. I said, oh, sweetie, are you hurt, he just looked at me an smiled and I say, please don’t run, you could get hurt.

    Well, they were in the check out and the little boy kept smiling at me. He stopped running through the store. Another woman said to him, where is his mother, I need to talk to her.

    I think some kids just need to be instructed as to be yelled at all the time. Many parents yell at their children in place of speaking to them in a voice and tone simple words.

  • Old Fan

    Take the child away from the Parents – that is the Democratic Partisan way. The Parents appear to be completely unfit to raise the child, unless of course they are being judged by the Public Teachers Union. Then the boy’s behavior seems on par for the course, perfectly acceptable say for a child living in Chicago.

  • bigkahuna

    Charge the idiot father for failure to control his spawn.

    Typical liberal moron voter…Blame the clerk. or in other cases..the gun

    Typical common sense conservative: Blame the kid, parent or in other cases…the criminal.

    The mindset is vastly different.

    Liberals are pantywaists and basically have ruined the greatest country on earth.

  • Ember George

    Wrightsville, GA…my backyard. Down here in GA we believe in a belt on the butt, a peach switch on the tail, a trip to the woodshed, and pinching their heads off. Not abusive but real discipline. Nothing makes a child face reality like having to go get the belt, pick out the switch, or face your buddies after some posterior adjustment.

    That daddy will have his ears lit on fire my the good folks of Wrightsville. And I’d bet you some southern fried chicken that kid (and his sorry daddy) is a terror to the school system. Folks want the world to treat there little crumb-snatchers like they’re royalty and then wonder why they end up in prison. DUH. You never raised them!

  • LK

    Folks, the kid did not get whipped with a belt. That photo is just a prop. That being said, JHARP, stop trying to make excuses for that kid. He misbehaved and got a spanking. It should have been the parents who administered it, but he got his spanking anyway.

  • stuck in nm

    She should claim self defense lol there was a whole shelf of merchandise he could throw and they carry knives too. The parents should be charged for neglect. I feel bad for the cashier I had a kid go to our salad bar and stick his hand in the pudding his parents didn’t do a thing. Druggies SMH.

    @ #25 jharp-“I will let my neighbors, parents of an 8 year old autistic boy who struggles with what is right and what is wrong, that is their fault that their son behaves badly at times. What is wrong with you people?”

    jfart, I was eating out with my family and my wife’s collegue with hers. Her son was autistic. When my kids were acting up, I told them to stop or I’d take them to the bathroom. They stopped immediately. Her “autistic” son asked me what’d I do in the bathroom, so I told him that I was going to take my belt off & beat them with it. His eyes popped out of his head. You should have seen the look of fear on his face. That’s when his mom told us that she never whips her kids. That whole meal he just kept looking at me. I kept looking at him too; kinda letting him know I’d beat his ass if she let me. He acted fine the whole night. Surprise.

    Back in my day, we didn’t have all these pseudo names like HDD, ADD or autistic. It was simply called a being a brat. Yep, the belt worked then and it works even today.

  • jony101

    in texas in the 1970’s I would have got a whipping at the store, then at home my dad would have gave me another whipping, my mom would also gave me another whipping. I learn early on to behave in public.
    Things where so much simpler back then. No mass shootings in schools etc.

  • gene read

    I went through child abuse as a kid. Every Saturday my Dad forced me to stand in the backyard while he threw things at me. All I had to defend myself was a stick of wood that had the name Louisville Slugger on it. He would throw it at me and out of defense, I would try to hit him back. He always won because I could never hit him back. I always seemed to hit it over the fence. I had to see a child psychologist and he told me this: “your Dad did nothing wrong, what he did was called baseball” I don’t think I will ever be the same. Is this thing legal?
