SPARTANBURG, SC – A South Carolina woman was arrested after she hit her young son after he made a Mother’s Day card for his grandmother but not for her.

Police were called to a home on Thursday where Tracey Murphy told them that her daughter, 30-year-old Shontrell Murphy, hit her 6-year-old son repeatedly in the head.

She added that when she asked her daughter why she hit the boy, Shontrell responded “because she could.”

Shontrell explained to police that she was simply disciplining her son, who she said had behavioral issues, and that she did not believe she did anything wrong.

However, Shontrell’s daughter told police that the real reason why her mother smacked her brother around was because he had made a Mother’s Day card for their grandmother, but not one for Shontrell.

The daughter said her mother found the card and ripped it up when she realized it was not for her. According to the girl, her mother then repeatedly hit the boy in the head “hard.” The children added that their mom regularly hit them and that they were afraid of her.

Officers verified seeing a torn, handmade card on the floor and arrested Shontrell on a charge of cruelty to children. She has since been released from the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

Her son was taken to the hospital to be checked out and later released.

  • What a bitch

  • I have a hunch as to why you didnt get a Mother’s day card. Just a hunch.

  • Rebelclown

    Sad thing is she’ll probably get her kids back. Some people shouldn’t have children.

  • Diva of Destruction

    Classy lady. I’d love to kick her in her va jay jay.

  • Old Man Metal

    There’s a really good reason you didn’t get a Mother’s Day card, bitch.

    “her son, who she said had behavioral issues” Maybe, I dunno, because she keeps hitting him in the fucking head?

  • When I click on your page, it keeps telling me I have a virus and I need to download a virus cleaner

  • Jealousy issues

  • Mobile?

  • And that’s how your bitch ass ended up cardless in the first place.

  • yes

  • I really cant figure what makes people treat there children so terriable

  • Aerysta

    Probably got another beating as soon as she got home. Does the bitch wonder why he didn’t make her one?

  • Hmmmm maybe just maybe that’s why you didn’t get a card

  • IronWoobie

    If you abuse your children, you probably shouldn’t expect a Mother’s Day card.

    A Motherfucker’s Day card, maybe, but not a Mother’s Day card.

    I hope she loses custody of her kids before she kills one of them.


    This reminds of the bitch that stabbed her baby daddy to death a few years ago, because she only got flowers and a card for Mother’s Day card, and not some more expensive gift. She’s since been ACQUITTED. Unbelievable. I don’t how she pulled that one off.

  • Bitch, you know why you didn’t get a Mother’s Day Card. BECAUSE YOU’RE NO MOTHER, MOTHERFUCKER!

  • William Dean Luke

    Someone needs to slap the dust off this bitch’s brain..WITH A BRICK.

  • Buffettgirl

    I wonder if Grandma is raising him? It makes perfect sense if she is… Poor little guy.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Uhm… Uh… Well… Uhm… Can’t imagine why that terrible child didn’t make a card for his, ah… mother.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Any card he might have made for her would have led to the same behavior. Angry crazy is illogical crazy in motion, but with a micro reason that takes it just a little further.

  • AlabamDeb

    Poor lil feller. No doubt this was not the first ‘head whoopin’ he got and if he has to stay with this bitch, won’t be the last. “Because I can”…probably accompanied with a neck roll. Sounds like she needs her head thumped a few times. Preferably with a brick.

  • Thanks. I’ll look… advertiser probably using a crappy ad.

  • It’s called MOTHER’S Day not incubator’s day

  • Leslie Mashmann

    Probably his grandma cared for him, while his so called mother beat on him. Total bitch – next time she may kill one of them.

  • Fuck this bitch with an iron stick! Kid’ll B traumatized 4 life because of her.

  • Valkyrie Ziege

    ; This is why black men are so messed up. Thanks mom.

  • measyou

    I hope she is after this

  • Guess the ho never stopped to consider why he did this.

  • Rae Lin

    Nothing and no one is safe around black people. Not little old ladies… not dogs… not even their own kids! 🙁

  • Sejanus

    On ‘Dirty Fat Cunt Day’ I bet he remembers her

  • Taster’sChoice

    Link please. Sounds delicious (in a DD sort of way.) lol

  • Taster’sChoice

    That’s one possible explanation. I tend to lean toward the lack of a father figure in the home, more.

  • Delaney3030

    I had that happen once on mobile. Last week

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    A good grandmother is worth her weight in gold.

  • Ann Roh

    You know those poor kids got the shit beat out of them when this dumb bitch got out of jail.

  • Valkyrie Ziege

    ; Exactly, and 70% of black homes are without any positive father figure, and the ersatz father figure they have is always some religious leader, full of bronze-age superstitions, and usually abusing all those vulnerable women, and children.

    What an awful name — Shontrell — sounds like a company that produces cheap kitchen items that are sold on tv — or a girl’s group that just isn’t any good at singing. Seriously, the boy probably made the card for his grandma because she’s the one raising him.
