    MEMPHIS, TN -
    (WMC) - Police say a young boy was beaten for his bad grades by his own mother.

    The six-year-old ended up at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital after Memphis police say his mother, Latasha Green, badly beat him. According to police, the abuse was discovered at school after the child appeared sluggish and kept vomiting.

    Police say the victim told them he was beaten for getting an "N," which means Needs Improvement, on his report card.

    The child was taken to Le Bonheur where doctors discovered the boy had cuts, a cracked skull, and damage to his pancreas. Police say he was kicked, punched, and hit in the face.

    Green is charged with aggravated child abuse.

    The "excuse" is bull. That woman beat that child because she could.... and because she enjoyed the feeling of POWER it gave her. The "N" was simply "another" excuse in what I'm POSITIVE is a long list of excuses.

    I hope he has some options for a caretaker though.. that foster care system is no bed of roses. I would rather see them get the mother the help she needs to get her head right then to see the kids thrown into the system. Hope there are some family members that can kick in and help out.
