I came across this video from a Dr. Phil show. Now, usually, I don't give Dr. Phil a second glance...can't stand him. But this video was so disturbing on so many levels...I couldn't look away. I am sickened by the behavior of this woman! In one clip she says they've tried everything - times outs, spankings etc. Hey lady...did you ever try LOVE?!?! Jesus Christ on a Cracker - what I wouldn't do to this woman, this grown ass bully, this waste of flesh.
This is one thing about a lot of organized religions - they seem to not frown upon child abuse. Period. Argue with me, if you will, but this kind of abuse is not an LDS exclusive thing this kind of abuse goes on in all kinds of homes of various faiths. It’s the mormon church though, that trumpets to the world in the press its holier-than-thou-proclamation for the family and holds up its members as better than “other faiths” as “forever families”.
(Some info from this blog)
It's of a woman named Jessica Beagley and she's a 'mom' of 6. She's married to Gary Beagley, an Anchorage patrol officer who was once a detective. They have six children; one of them, a seven-year-old boy, is a Russian adoptee. They are identified as members of the LDS Church; reference is made to a group photo of the family posing outside the LDS temple in Bountiful, Utah. According to RFM, Jessica was recently the stake-level Primary president.
The controversy came to a head during a November 17th episode of the Dr. Phil showed called “Mommy Confessions”. One of Bagley's other kids shot a video of Jennifer disciplining her seven-year-old Russian adoptee son, Kristoff. On the video, Jessica is observed to be verbally reproving Kristoff for having received three discipline cards in elementary school for throwing pencils, sword-fighting with another child, and acting out in another class, and then lying to Jessica about the in-school discipline.
Jessica seems to be much more troubled about the lying than the infraction itself. Although assertive, she's not particularly aggressive. Then she has Kristoff drink a small portion of hot sauce. She then continues to reprove him, then allows him to spit out the hot sauce. Then she directs him to take a cold shower; he can be heard crying while showering.
The video was taken by her 10 year old daughter of her adopted brother.
And here's the video on Dr. Phil
