Hot Sauce Poured In Eyes; Teenager Tortured For Breaking A Plate
A teenager in Utah had hot sauce poured in his eyes by his mother and her friend after he broke a plate, and now his mother faces multiple child abuse charges. Robin Willette Rumsey, 38, and her friend, Krista Jean Miller, 33, were arrested Tuesday on multiple felony child abuse and endangerment charges. In addition to having hot sauce poured in his eyes, the teen was also forced to smoke marijuana, force-fed hard alcohol, duct-taped to a chair and left in an unlit basement for hours on end.

"This is not discipline that any child should have to go through," West Valley Police Sgt. Jason Hauer told the Associated Press. "It's definitely abuse."
Authorities say Rumsey and Miller began abusing the child two years ago. The investigation started six months ago, and began uncovering stories like the hot sauce poured in his eyes. There were also several incidents in 2011 where the women broke glass on the floor and forced the boy to lie down in it.
Marsha Christensen, who is Jean Miller's mother, told reporters that Miller left an abusive relationship to live with Rumsey. When asked whether or not she believed the allegations that her daughter took hot sauce and poured it in the teen's eyes, Christensen was adamant in her denial.
"No, she was not raised this way," she said.
She believes the allegations are false and were made up by the boy's father because of a bitter custody battle with Rumsey.
While hot sauce poured in the eyes is a horrific punishment to inflict on a child, that doesn't stop Internet pranksters from doing it at home. The results are predictably painful:
