Debate Question: 13 year old cutting 3 year old hair
A 13- year old went in a McDonald's and picked a random child to cut their hair. The child was a 3 year old and the 13 year old took a pair of scissors and cut the child's hair.. The 13 year old was in court and the judge ordered the mom to cut her hair to reduce her 276 hour community service by 150 hours if her mom cut her hair, the mom agreed. The mom cut her child's hair with the satisfaction of the 3 year old mothers support. Now the 13 year old mother is filing a complaint against the judge saying that "a eye for an eye isn't how a child should be taught right from wrong". She said the punishment was too harsh (30 days in detention, pay damages to the child, and 276 hours community service). The 13 year old also admitted during a hearing to threatening a teenager with rape and mutilation over a period of 8 months. One person said that this 13 year old is a bully and her mom is blind to this fact and having threaten another teen for 8 months she has bigger problems than her hair cut.... Thoughts?
Do you think the mom should file a complaint against the judge?
Do you think the 13 year old might have some issues that either her mom is covering up or not able to face facts about?
