As a parent, my kids have done some really stupid things.  In fact, as I write this, there was a mild injury when they were playing on the stairs, which is totally against the rules.  I got mad, thought about spanking them, but I didn't.  I talked to them, told them what they did wrong, and then explained how badly they could get hurt.

An 11-year-old from Flint created a Facebook profile claiming that he went to Mott College and worked at Aeropostale.  The video shows that he also had a few phones in his pocket, not sure if they were stolen or borrowed, and his parents said that he is not performing well as a 5th grader.

I won't say that I have never spanked my kids, but I will say that I have never beaten my kids.  Yes, there is a difference.  Now again I will warn you that this video is horrifying!  No matter what my kids do, I would never video tape anyone beating them while my wife smoked a cigarette with the other kids in the room, as we all swore like sailors.

We do have more information, but Flint Police have asked us not to share details about this investigation.  Do you think that this child deserved this abuse?  Do you think his parents were out of line?  Do you think the police should get involved?  Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.

We felt it best to remove any link to the video since it reveals the identity of the victim, but the video will likely be edited and aired by your favorite local news affiliate.
