  • I don't care what they were doing, that was abuse. That was absolutely horrible to watch, I wanted to throw up. And then to read the comments, all those people who think what he did was right. Absolutely disgusting.

    Took the words right out of my mouth wendy!

  • I would love to do the same thing to this sick, twisted fuck, this guy needs a beat down for this. That is child abuse plain and simple. The people on there defending this asshole need their heads examined.

  • "a bit too much" are you kidding?! Of course that is abuse! I don't care what those girls do not "discipline" like that. How can you even question whether that's abuse or not after watching that....especially the girls' reaction? I can tell you from experience that getting whipped like that is extremely painful and totally unnecessary. All it does it terrify the hell out of you and traumatize you.

  • I spank my kids but that on the video wasn't spanking, that was abusive beating. Kids that age shouldn't be spanked anyway.

  • And what the heck is "twerking?"
    Answer by AllAboutKeeley 36 minutes ago

    ^^^ I know- I had to look it up too. It's basically a sexual dance where you jiggle your butt- there's some You Tube videos but don't watch them with the kids near by.

  • okay, i'm going to be the 'devils advocate' here, (after i agree that this dad was abusive and went to far) but:

    1. it seems as though maybe he was set up by the girls?
    2. why would they post it on facebook? I'm sure they did not expect him to get support.
    3. why not take it to the police instead?
    4. we don't know the story behind this. maybe he went to far because he has caught the girls doing shit before? maybe they're wild girls who are going to end up pregnant or dead by their actions, and he lost it out of fear? honestly, we don't know that.

  • to most of us, yes. If you go read the comments on the video itself, or on the one of the dad being charged people agree with him.
