|Li Zhengqin in Court|
The nine-year-old son, known as Xiaohu suffered from more than 150 wounds on his body in April after he was whipped first with a scratching rake then a skipping rope because, according to the mother, he lied about his academic grading and cheated in a school exam.
Surprisingly, the child's biological mother, Zhang, who is also Li Zhengqin's cousin supprts her cousin and wrote a note to that effect urging the authorities to drop all criminal charges against her cousin. She also wishes Xiaohu could go back to live with Li in Nanjing so his life could return to normal.
As a child I also received so many beatings to make me fall in line too. But this beating, is way over the top to be nomal, even here in Nigeria.
Maybe she deserves to go to jail.
