Legalizing Spanking

Legalizing Spanking

Kansas lawmakers proposes a bill that would allow parents, teachers and caretakers to spank children hard enough to leave marks.
(KSNW)  Kansas lawmakers will soon consider a bill legalizing spanking.

The bill introduced by Wichita Democrat Gail Finney would allow parents or anyone a parent has given permission to punish a child with up to ten forceful open palmed swats against the clothed buttocks of a child.

McPherson Deputy County Attorney Britt Colle first introduced the idea to Representative Gail Finney.

Colle has prosecuted hundreds of child abuse cases saying some of the cases are discipline and the law should make that clear.
