An 11-year-old girl's angry, profanity-laced online video rants are drawing widespread attention for their shocking content.
The girl, who calls herself "Jessi Slaughter," in one video tells her critics that she will "put a Glock (pistol) in their mouths and make a brain slushy," The Early Show reports. In another, she starts crying and says she "has been having emotional breakdowns."
"It's very sad that an 11 yr old needs to go to this length to feel connected to somebody, and we have to worry about that in the long-term for her," child psychologist Dr. Jennifer Hartstein says on The Early Show.
