A Baton Rogue, Louisiana, was arrested after she admitted to whipping her sons as punishment for breaking into a house.
Schaquana Spears told WBRZ after bonding out of jail that she thought she did the right thing when she whipped her three sons. Her 13-year-old reportedly told detectives that his mother struck him with an RCA cord repeatedly. The teen had cuts on his arms and marks on various parts of his body. His brothers, ages 10 and 2, were also injured.
“They’re just being kids, being followers,” Spears told the station of her decision to discipline her kids. “I thought I was showing them this is not what you do. You do not steal people’s stuff, what they work hard for. I know how that feels, I’ve had my house broken into.”
