How was Beka abused in Beka Lamb?

She got beaten one time and got a cut on her face, but she deserved it because she lied, and in the Caribbean getting a few "Good Claps" like Beka got is nothing really. ___________ I would say that being beaten is abuse, whether you did anything wrong as a trigger or not... and no matter where you live. Even if a certain society accepts abuse, it doesn't mean it *isn't* abuse. but she was not that bad to get beaten

Cooking tools are everything, so be sure your knife is good and sharp. Run the knife the length of the leg (the best you can) and then cut downward into serving pieces. ALWAYS cut at a right angle to the bone, slicing towards it (the idea being that one is slicing across the grain of the meat).
