Police say she was observed by customers and employees at a store on Broad Street, dragging a small child around by a backpack leash. The child had visible marks on the neck from the dragging. Best(worst) part? The whole thing was caught on video! Alabama child dragging is part of the culture I suppose? The video is below.

  1. Child dragging part of the culture? Because of one stupid woman IN THE WHOLE STATE dragging her kid with a leash?!? I’ve seen a LOT of parents with kids on leashes at Disneyworld with Yankee accents.

    It is not an Alabama thing-but thanks for slamming us with your condescending snip. A parent who puts a leash on their kid is beyond my comprehension so I’m not surprised when one drags the kid around–regardless of where they are from.

  2. You don’t know this woman at all. You don’t know if they were playing; you don’t know the person who decided to put this on youtube; you don’t know what happened before or after this clip. This is a moment in her life. Who are you to condemn her?
