Mom livestreams daughter's beating

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A video live-streamed on Facebook shows a Georgia woman beating and cursing at her teenage daughter for posting provocative pictures online.

A later post that appears to be written by the mother, who has not been charged, says "I love my daughter with all my heart." But she says her daughter won't "disrespect me."

Savannah police say the daughter told them she feels safe in the home. Police spokesman Sonny Cohrs says there are no charges at this time, but he says the case has been referred to the state's child welfare department.

A spokeswoman for that agency, Susan Boatwright, would neither confirm nor deny involvement in the case, citing privacy laws.
