Horrible Mom Beats Son Because He Made Mother’s Day Card for Grandma Instead

Meet POS Shontrell Murphy, age 30, from Spartanburg, South Carolina. She’s posing for this mugshot because she recently beat her six year old son, violently slapping him multiple times in the head. Why? Because her young son gave a Mother’s Day card to her mother, his grandmother, instead of to her.

Shontrell Murphy is no Mother of the Year

So here’s what happened.

Spartanburg police officers responded to a disturbance call at a home this past Thursday evening. There they found a woman with two children, a girl and a boy, and the boy was crying. The woman said she was their grandmother and that her daughter, the children’s mother, had slapped the crying child multiple times on the head. Then, the boy’s sister told police that their mother was angry because her brother had made a Mother’s Day card for their grandmother and not their mother. Police saw a handmade Mother’s Day card ripped up at the scene.

When the police questioned the children’s mother, Shontrell Murphy, she admitted to “smacking the child” but didn’t believe she hit the child in a “hard or violent manner.” The children however reportedly told the police their mother hits them all the time in a violent manner and they are afraid of her.

Stupidly jealous and violent “mother” Shontrell Murphy, has been arrested and charged with cruelty to children. With a mom like this, is it any wonder this little kid makes a Mother’s Day card for his grandma instead?

    Sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad. How many times are similar scenes occurring each and every day. I think more than we would care to admit. What happened?

    Some says it’s nature such that there are those who are born that way, mean and cruel. Others argue that it’s nurture. Individuals are born okay, but along the way they are maltreated and abused themselves. So, these become abusers and criminals themselves. Me, I’m of the nature-nurture school.

    That is, that there are those who by their very nature can endure more than others of similar circumstance and not succumb to them. I’ve personally known a few people who had mean and cruel times growing up, yet are some of the most delightful people you would ever want to meet. Others I’ve known had all the breaks, yet their lives were an utter disaster.

    It’s so sad for the children. They can’t understand. They’re vulnerable to what adults hand out to them. “Why don’t they like me?” “What did I do that they treat me so?” “I must be bad for them to treat me so.” Such notions and thoughts can run through their little minds. Unless there’s some corrective along the way, they carry this into their teenage and adult years. Is it any wonder some of them turn to illicit affairs or drugs to cope with the pain?

    As for the mother, who knows what’s taken place in her life. I know that this isn’t the first time I’ve heard of or witnessed in public such an incident. About all I can do is pray that this family might receive some much needed, evidently, intervention to put them on a better path for all. We know that a boy’s relationship with his mother is a significant indicator of how he might treat women later on. Lord, have mercy.
