MERIWETHER COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia mother is accused of forcing her 12-year-old son to kill his pet hamster because of a bad report card.

It happened last Thursday at the family’s home, said Meriwether County Sheriff Steve Witlock.

Investigators said Lynn Geter made her son use a hammer to kill the hamster.

Geter was arrested Friday following an interview with investigators.

She is charged with battery, cruelty to children and cruelty to animals.

Investigators said Geter also violated probation and remains in jail.

    …and angryton needs some medication too – how disturbing is your response? You typify the problem….too many people don’t have “normal” reactions to much anymore. They are too desensitized – what with all the crazy things in the daily news. This mother needs constant monitoring by Child Protective Services (although I wonder about them too and wish we had a better system…) and ought to be forced into mental counseling. Imagine the impact of her bahavior on this child??? This shows how out of control the good old USA is becoming – how far off the patch we’ve wained – all this sicko stuff going on…. IT’S NOT NORMAL PEOPLE. How are young ones supposed to know the difference between right and wrong anymore? WAKE UP PEOPLE …try harder with your kids – it’s a choice and an important one. And please expose these sick people whenever you can and handle them accordingly. I can only wonder what we are NOT finding out about things going on in peoples homes….

    You are right, it is not in the least bit funny. And I agree, that this mother is obviously not fit to carry out her role as a parent.

    However I am not so sure that things are becoming “worse and worse” or “more insane”. That would imply that things were actually better or less insane at some point in time, and I’m simply not so sure that was ever the case.
