A school principal in Florida has been cleared of wrongdoing after a viral video showed her spanking a six-year-old girl with a paddle for damaging a computer. Prosecutors said that the punishment did not cause harm or amount to child abuse, as the mother Fabiola Rivera has consented to the punishment of her daughter, was present, and did not raise any objection in the video that she filmed. Earlier, police cleared the principal after watching the viral video. Ms Carter was placed on administrative leave while the Clewiston Police Department investigated the allegations of abuse. Corporal punishment is still legal in several Florida counties but it is banned in Hendry in the southern part of the state. Sheriff Whidden was sworn in earlier this year, for his fourth term, as the Hendry County Sheriff.

A video of a Florida school principal using a paddle to spank a 6-year-old student has sparked outrage online. In the graphic video, shot by the child's mother on her mobile phone last month, we see the student bent over a chair, crying, while she is paddled three times by principal Melissa Carter of Central Elementary School in Clewiston, Florida. Ms Carter is now under investigation by the Hendry County school board and the local sheriff's office. Corporal punishment - paddling, spanking, or other forms of physical punishment - is not permitted in Hendry County schools. But while physical discipline has been outlawed in US military training centres, juvenile detention facilities and as punishment for a crime, slapping or spanking a child remains legal in 19 states across the country.
We were surprised to learn that the message behind this ad is "exactly what it claims to be," according to Michael Cousin, modern marketer at digital media company Star Moose. At the time this ad ran, which Cousin guesses was in the s, there was very little regulation of advertising, so advertisers really just relied on self-regulation.
