CHICAGO, Ill. – Should a child be able to say ‘No’ to having ear and body piercings? Or can a parent make that decision and force the child, using choke holds and physical restraint, to get it done?

Facebook user Pretty Ricky posted the video online with the caption, “This lil girl nearly lost her dammm mind when I was trying to Pierce her ears yall gotta watch this till the end.” The video has since been removed from Facebook, but is now going viral on YouTube.
