    The part where she reportedly beat the feet with a 2x4 is sadisticly humorous.

    Wonder what present they gave her for Mother's Day?

    Certainly not unique to West Virginia.
    We had a similar case here several years ago when I was the assistant city editor. Not quite as a bizarre. There was no forcing the kids to gorge themselves and then consume their own vomit.
    But the case was more severe, since one of the younger kids, a foster kid, died.
    I'm trying to recall the details.
    The mother had her gaggle of kids, stepkids and foster kids with her in the mini van. One young girl, 3- or 4, was crying about wanting to go to McDonalds. Mother told daughter, 16, to sit on crying foster daughter. Foster daughter smothered.

    If I'm 16 and my mother's abusing me and making me eat my vomit, I'm whipping some ass -- mother, or not.

    It's just old-school parenting. You can't coddle kids.

    It's not just for breakfast anymore.
