...by the welts and bruises we leave on our children:
A Roseville man whipped his 10-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son with a belt and a cord for changing the television from a Christian channel... Stanley C. Ogbonna, 37, was charged Friday by summons with two counts of malicious punishment of a child, a gross misdemeanor, and ordered to appear in court on April 28. According to the charges: On Dec. 13, a social worker at the children's school told police about marks discovered on a female student's arm. The complaint listed "large welts on her right forearm, as well as bruises and marks on her left arm, right shoulder and behind her ear." The girl told the officer that her father struck her several times with a belt and a cord for changing the TV channel in their apartment.... A day later, Ogbonna told police that he became angry after noticing that the TV was no longer on a Christian channel.
