This is absolutely horrific; authorities say 9-year-old Savannah Hardin died after being forced to run for three hours as punishment for having lied to her grandmother about eating candy bars.

I'm speechless that anyone could consider

Is this some kind of 'spare the rod, spoil the child' mentality that's caught on recently? This isn't the first time I've heard about some excessive & uncalled for 'discipline' of children.

I hope that whomever is guilty of forcing this on this poor child gets life.
