so my sister allowed her 7 yr old to go to the park alone with his younger brother. He was beat up by an 11 yr old because he wouldn't go home and get a liter so the 11 yr old could smoke a ciggarette..He was punched in the stomach to the point of not being able to breath..he's always terrorizing all the little kids in the neighborhood and his parents won't do a thing..He beat up a little 5 yr old girl with a 2 x4..My sister called and pressed charges on the kid and now she has to testify and so does the her 7 yr old..My question is do you think my sister can get in trouble as well for not supervising her kids while at the park?? To me it makes her just as responsible for what happened to her kid as it is the parents of the 11 yr old.Answer Question

Personally i think both parents are at fault, more the 11 yrs old then your sister. I would NEVER allow my 7 yrs old go to the park alone with another little one. Pressing charges was the right thing to do but your sister needs to able to answer the questions about why the children were at the park w/o supervision.
I think your sister also should get other parents to back her up with the problems they are having with this 11 yr old child.
