There is no actual video, it is a news report.

Mom Leaves Blind Boy on Side of Road
AP
LIVINGSTON, La. (May 18) - The mother and aunt of a legally blind 10-year-old boy were booked on cruelty charges after briefly leaving him on the side of a highway because he was misbehaving, a sheriff's spokesman said.

A driver reported seeing someone pick up a child from the side of Interstate 12 on Wednesday about 40 miles east of Baton Rouge and put him in a van. Authorities feared they were dealing with a kidnapping, said Jason Ard, the Livingston Parish sheriff's spokesman.

Investigators found the boy had actually been dropped off as punishment. The van traveled a short distance down the highway before the mother got out and retrieved him, Ard said. It was unclear exactly how long the child was out of the car but Ard said Friday it was probably only a few minutes.

Deputies booked the mother, Christine Cole, 32, and the aunt, Judy Chamberlain, 33, with second-degree cruelty to a child, Ard said.

The boy, whose name was not released, was placed in state custody.

Unfortunatly, hundreds - if not thousands - of incidents like these happen daily. We need more advocates for children , more education for adults and swifter, harsher punishment for those who would harm the innocents!

I used to see kids while teaching that never stood much of a chance to be in a stable, loving, supportive, or somewhat normal home. It broke my heart. Their family situations were so bad that it is difficult for me to comprehend what it must be like for them to actually live it. That is the reality. A lot of the problem is economic but the parents' circumstances stem from their lack of ability or interest to better themselves when they had the opportunity. It's a mess.
