    ORDDU: It's a scary world out there. There is physical abuse behind so many closed doors that it's now spilling out into public places--even Disney World! How terrible to know that there are so many indecent individuals around, today, who think nothing of becoming physically abusive to others.

    ORWEN: I know what you mean, Orddu. I hate physical abuse, too.

    ORGOCH: Oh, fer the love of Pete's Dragon! Just look at them two hippo-crits blabber on 'bout the evils a physical abuse--when that's all I git from both of 'em when nobody's around! Why, just last night--

    Re: At the Magic Kingdom Woman arrested for Child Abuse

    So sad for the poor kid...initially when I read this I thought pc america strikes again, when a light spanking is viewed as child abuse...but punching and kicking, that's uncalled for anywhere...poor kid is prolly traumatized for life, and may get beat worse afterwords if the mother takes out her frustrations on the poor child.

    edit: sorry after rereading a todller is not the appropriate age range for spankings...

    I hope they take that child away from her. I'm trying to imagine how I would have handled that if it had happened in front of me. I can't stand to see a little kid get beat. I probably would have wound up getting hit by this b*&# myself - I don't think I could have just stood there an watched. Everybody disciplines their children differently but that is just cruel. I hope there are enough people willing to testify to what they saw.

    I've heard of lots of awful parent behavior towards kids in the Disney Parks. But kicking someone in the gut who's still basically a baby is a big WTF.

    ORDDU: Especially having this happen on the heals of Casey Anthony's recent trial, I'm surprised the woman would dare take such horrible actions in public.

    ORWEN: Or was it the verdict of that trial that made her think it was okay?

    ORGOCH: Got a torture chamber fer that dang so called 'mom'?
