‘Drunk’ mother slammed daughter into wall repeatedly after she incorrectly read Bible verses: report

Published

on

A Middletown, Pennsylvania girl under the age of 13 was beaten by her mother and kicked out of her home after her mother told her that she incorrectly recited Bible verses.

Police announced Thursday that they are filing aggravated assault against a child, strangulation and terroristic threats against Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, 41, PennLive reported. The young girl told police that the mother had been drunk for three days and she had called family members for help. None of the family members would answer the calls, however. Shortly after, the girl’s mother told the girl to kneel in the bathroom.

The victim told police that she begged her mother, “please don’t hit me. I don’t want to get on my knees.” The mother was allegedly enraged and yelled at the girl “to get on her f*cking knees,” according to police. The mother then ordered the girl to repeat Bible verses verbatim.

“What did God tell the man to do with his son?” Shoffner asked her daughter.

The girl said, “God said to forgive his son.”

Shoffner said the answer was, “God told the man to kill his son.” She then allegedly grabbed the girl by the hair and slammed her into the wall. Each incorrect answer garnered the same result for a total of five times, police said.

At one point, Shoffner told her, “I’m gonna kill you (expletive),” and began to strangle the girl.

Fearing for her life, the girl bit her mother’s arm and shoulder. At that point, the mother told the girl to “leave and don’t ever come back.”

She took a phone, coat and shoes and ran. She called her father who then drove her to the police station.

This isn’t the first time, however. Police responded to a domestic dispute Feb. 10 after neighbors reported hearing banging and arguing. No one answered the door when police knocked and as police began pounding and demanding she “open up.” A half-naked Shoffner then leaned out of a second-floor window and screamed obscenities at the officers. According to police reports, she told officers if they came through her door she “got something for us.”

There was no victim at the scene once officers were able to make their way inside, however. She was ultimately charged with open lewdness and disorderly conduct.

This article first appeared in Salon.

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night.

Published

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.

"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.

Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son

Published

on

In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.

Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.
