White Trash Wednesday: Florida Mother Brands Kids So She Won’t Lose Them

Here’s your weekly holy shit no way, oh wait they live in Florida so that makes sense story.

According to this site, a Florida mother is accused of branding her 5 and 7 year old children by “burning a stick with a lighter and then touching their arms with it.”

The 23-year old Southwest Florida woman, Kayla R. Oxenham, allegedly told her kids she was burning them so that they “could have ice cream and to identify both [of them] as hers.”

This really isn’t that big of a deal. There’s little doubt that both kids would have gotten tattoos within the next couple of years anyways. I’m also pretty sure that most children in Florida look the same, so the identifying marks were a great, permanent way to make sure they don’t get lost in the shuffle. This is a much better idea than simply remembering what color their hair is, or what clothes they were wearing.

But…I suppose that meth makes people do some pretty dumb shit.
