Meet 27 y/o Whitney White of Houston, TX. That’s her booking photo below….
Whitney was arrested on Monday, August 7th, 2017 for 2 counts of “causing bodily injury to a child” (or what I – FL – would call “Child Abuse”).
The investigation reportedly began sometime in July, 2017 after the child was observed with bruises on his face, welts on his body and a cut on his arm. When confronted Whitney allegedly told police that she was frustrated with her son because he refused to study his school work. She reportedly claimed that facial bruising was caused by “a” slap to the face after the boy had told her “no”, which she took as a “sign of disrespect”, and that welts on his arms occurred after she had hit him “too forceful” with a belt.
But Whitney’s problems were compounded when her son reported to police that his mother had used a Taser on him in November, 2016, allegedly saying that “I was five years old when the defendant tased [tasered] me on my arm because I got in trouble at school. From zero to 10, it hurt 10.”
Right about now you should be wondering how Whitney could be charged with the uncorroborated statement of a child for something that had allegedly occurred almost a year earlier… and the answer is simple: She admitted it.
Whitney reportedly confirmed her son’s taser allegation, telling the police that she was frustrated because her son wasn’t achieving the learning outcomes that she wanted for him and that “When I tried to talk with him about it, he didn’t want to discuss it, and he was running away from me, [so] I picked it up and tased [tasered] him with it.” Whitney also reportedly told investigators that her “anger management class told me not to tase[r] him but we didn’t go into what else to do”.
Now that Whitney has been charged (that’s her below in Court) her now 6 y/o, together with his weeks-old sibling, have been taken into temporary custody of Child Protective Services pending placement with a responsible relative.
Whitney has reportedly been permitted to have supervised contact with her infant child because she is still breast-feeding.
Memo to the Folks: I am not going to tell you how to parent (if you can’t distinguish between responsible discipline and child abuse then you, like Whitney, deserve what you get) but I will say this…
