According to WKYC, a Utah woman was arrested after she pulled two of her son’s teeth in a Walmart restroom.
Prosecutors said that the 47-year-old woman bought a bottle of hand sanitizer and an pair of needle-nose pliers from the store, before taking her 7-year-old son to the bathroom (in the store) and yanking two of those bad boys out.
When the boy’s older brother heard the child screaming, he got him out of the bathroom. Reports say that one tooth was pretty loose but the other was only kind of loose. No anesthetic was used.
Police arrested and charged the woman with felony child abuse.
Back when I was a 10 year old kid, I got hit in the face with a baseball bat playing catcher with no mask, I needed 20 stitches, and kept telling the parents I was alright as I chased down the kid that hit me with the bat. A couple weeks later, I removed these stitches myself. Fuck it.
My parents’ generation talks about ripping teeth out like that not because it’s funny, but that’s how you did it. Times have changed.
The kid will be alright, and is anyone surprised this happened at Walmart?
