Jamaica Police detain woman seen beating child in video

Jamaica Observer: The police confirmed yesterday that they had detained a woman who was seen in a video circulated on social media beating her daughter mercilessly with a machete.

Hours after the video began circulating on social media, the constabulary’s Corporate Communication Unit reported that the mother was taken into custody.

“We are aware of a disturbing video being circulated on social media of a suspected child being abused by an adult. We are investigating,” the CCU said in a text message.

But yesterday when the Jamaica Observer contacted the CCU, officials there were unable to confirm if the mother was charged. The CCU said that both mother and daughter were being interviewed.

According to the CCU, the incident took place last November in Bath, St Thomas.

The video sparked outrage on social media yesterday.

“Madness this! Real abuse to little girl, yoh,” said Cardo Allen.

“I am so disturbed by this video,” stated Julien Edwards, while Tiana Apostolidis asked: “Is that a machete?”

    This is why violence is so high in the Caribbean in teens, this is a level of abuse that this child is facing just in this one incident we can seen. Things need to change back home not ok at all. She could have easily kill this girl or dismember her. She should be put in jail for a long time.

      No one isn’t saying that she can’t discipline her child. It’s the way she’s doing it and the object used to get it done. Put yourself in that child place. Would you like it if your mother would have disciplined you in that manner? Just saying!!!

    Circulating is a audio which gives clues as to why the mother was so angry and that child has been groomed into sayig the the things she did.
    Find and arrest the Pedophile involved with the child to…….thats where the Devil lies.
    However the mother was totally wrong to beat her daughter with a machete even though no blood was drawn 🙁

      Everyone should find out WHY the mother did what she did FIRST.
      The child was saying things to a gentlemen that was inappropriate.
      The child got caught.
      The mother disciplined HER child, probably the way she was disciplined.
      Doesn’t make it the right way for THIS child but maybe the way the mother knows.

      Some child need more than TALKING to…

    That’s right they need protection and guidance…….
    and after being groomed for sex and physically abused,
    a psychologist, not a good beating with a machete by your mother in her drawers and half naked in public.

    When she becomes a grown woman exposures of this kind may (or may not but then who knows) lead her to suffer from low self esteem and accepting of being physically abused by men or even sexually promiscuous and not knowing how to value herself or a good man under the right circumstances and in the right way…….SHES 12 and the man in his encouraging her to be the way she is needs LOCKING UP !!!
