A reader sent me a link to a Facebook post made by an Erika Burch from Cleveland, Texas. The post included disturbing pictures of a father dragging his small daughter by the hair as they shopped in Wal-Mart.
I’ve placed the pictures below for your viewing, although we have blacked out her face to protect the child. Unfortunately, the blackout prevents you from seeing the expression of pain on the little girl’s face. It’s heartbreaking.
This is what Burch wrote on her Facebook post along with the photos:
