    Some of the beatings I received would make you cringe, but having my hair cut has always been one of the most unforgivable acts.

    I agree with reasonable punishment. But not with cutting off a young woman's hair against her will.
    I'm so sorry that happened to you.

    Sounds like the two teens are a bit.. different.. or something..why on earth at that age would you find cutting a little kids hair amusing or clever? How.. weird.. not very socially normal behavior is it?
    However, If some kids did that to my toddler id have to say something to them for sure. They are old enough to know better. I wouldn't take their parents to court though!!
    As for the sentence.. of cutting the girls hair.. I agree with it. It makes as much sense to me as this winding up being delt with by the law. Hopefully the girls have learnt their lesson. How blardy stupid do you get?
    But really.. why can't people just shout at each other and be done with it :what:

    I watched the video and it seems that the detention, community service AND her hair cut, were a combined sentence for cutting the 3yo hair, PLUS for the harassing phonecalls she made.

    So I assume the sentences have been split like:
    Her haircut was the punishment for what she did to the 3yo girl.
    The community service and the 30 days detention is in relation to the harassing phonecalls.

    In what world does anyone think it's okay to just cut some random persons hair.

    That's just not on.

    I agree with the judge.

    Some random teenage girl put scissors near my 3 year old and i'd find it hard not to smack the smart **** bully *****.

    They are 11 and 13 NOT 4 or 5, thry deserve what they get.

    Agreed! Thank god they 'only' cut her hair, and didnt permanently disfigure her!

    Yes well, as a previous poster said... Only in America lol

    But aside from that, yes, if my child cut the hair off a 3 year old, id most certainly be getting the scissors and going chop chop to my daughters hair to teach her a lesson!

    You know.. The lesson that says Do unto others...

    Meh. Cutting hair is hardly a horrible punishment for cutting someone elses hair against their will. It's a very light punishment tbh, and hair will grow back. She could even have a hairdresser fix it hours later and look relatively fine.

    Yes, nobody likes a bad haircut... but jeez, it's cut hair. It's not like her mother scooped out her eyeballs and stomped on them in the courtroom as punishment. She cut her hair. Just like this teenager had done to someone else. Since she seems to lack empathy, maybe she was given a chance to feel how her "victim" felt (though, that said, I can't understand why you'd take someone to court for cutting your kids hair... I think I'd just go blow off steam on BH about it... lol).
