    Sounds crazy but until facts come out shouldnt pass judgement. Also a family matter general public shouldnt know, as if she is innocent this will tar her for a very long time.

    I`m thinking she didn`t do it. I read the comments her friends posted and they ring more true than the so called "facts"

    "I`m thinking she didn`t do it. I read the comments her friends posted and they ring more true than the so called "facts" "

    As a child who grew up with an abusive mother, I can tell you these types of moms are very good at putting out a `kind` face. Everyone would constantly tell me how sweet and loving my mom was. She treated all our guests as if they were angels. However, once they would leave, the panic would come because I knew we would be punished for whatever `bad` behavior we were `guilty` of that day.
    Also, nearly EVERY murderer or rapist is described by their love ones as the sort of people they could never imagine comitting such a horrible crime. Everyone says that. Humans are exceptionally good at hiding the truth.

    I don`t get what all the hubub is about. The hamster, admittedly, was very bad at math.

    My mom made me kill a rooster that had gotten out of its pen and attacked one of our puppies. She saw the rooster attacking the puppy, so she did the most rational thing a mom would do... She picked up a log and threw it at the rooster crushing it. When I came home from school, there was the rooster flapping his one good wing around the front yard. Mom told me to go put the rooster out of its misery. Of course the axe was rusty and dull. It was horrible, I`d never killed anything before. It took me four swings to finish the job. It was something out of a horror movie. I am permanently scarred. Thanks Mom.

    Good God... Reading this, it seems like the kid had been doing bad in school for a while. According to some people the kid already had some professional help with his studies. How hard is it for people to realize that your kid might not be a rocket scientist and that Ds and Cs might be the best he/she can do? This is something I hate about American parents. Their kid has to be the best in school or the kid might not even be worth feeding, let alone loving.

    This woman seems to be bat**** crazy and needs to be kept away from her children.

    Welcome to the internet jayme21! Just got here eh?
    Lets see, mom`s already on probation & has violated, heck! It`s obvious the hamster committed suicide then!
    SHE should be beaten to death with a hammer. Let a convicted mass-murderer do it as a reward for good behaviour! For heaven`s sake get her kids FAR away from her.

    Moneo is "most sad about the animal" because Moneo has never been on the child`s end (or observed) of a child abuse situation like this. Yes. drat the kid. Hamsters are more important.

    I really wish IAB would put warnings when the link takes you to things like this.

    I dislike haplessly clicking on things that take me to stories of animal abuse or mistreatment.

    Killing something is no punishment.

    The mother deserves jail. Taking it out on the hamster is not the right way to go.

    People like her make me sick.

    Animal abuse can get people years in jail where I live. Now add Child Abuse... she`s in trouble.

    They contacted social services over scratches on his neck?

    How badly does a Hamster Scratch for someone to call social services without talking to the child first?

    "They contacted social services over scratches on his neck?

    Um I think the scratches might have been from the mother - probably from holding him still and forcing him to kill the hamster? Unless I read something wrong, I don`t think a hamster would be able to scratch someones neck that bad.

    Also: This lady is a nut. That is all.

    "just what was he going to have to do if he failed his next report card? Beat his sister to death?"

    Well, he better not fail then. I think this a great way to motivate the little ADD bastard to do his homework.

    ... what? I`m kidding! I heart hamtaro, honest.

    Everytime I think I can`t be shocked anymore, someone pulls it out of the bag. What the woman put her child through (never mind the hamster) is beyond barbaric.

    I can`t believe this.
    Horrible. As a parent myself I could never force a child to do something like this, let alone, my own.
    Poor kid.
