      • There is a big difference between spanking a child and leaving bruises!A Spanking should not leave bruises!You also do not duck tape childs mouth shut.

  2. I am so sorry for the horrible treatment this child received at the hands of her mother. It would be nice to see these child abusers on a public registry just like sex offenders.

  3. Its been said she ran from Oklahoma for CPS issues and the ones she lived with knew this…. . Guess in time everyone will know. Sad…its not over… I believe theres a special place in hell for those who harm children or animals… Karma!

  5. It is very sad John that you stand up for this woman with out knowing the full story. Shame on Jolene for allowing Sherena to live in her home, but even worse is Jolene joined in on the beatings. I pray for Memphis and this poor little girl. May both these monsters rot in hell
