    Just spoke to a friend who is a high school teacher and she said her concern with a public shaming like this by a pus that it leaves a child a target for bullies. Hadn't even thought of that but it's a good point.

    What Shoopuf said!!!

    What a nutter.

    I have no idea whether she's a spoiled brat, has no boundaries, or what...but I have no doubt about where she learned how to throw her tantrums - and in what format - from. This video makes it plain as day.

    This bloke is expecting a teenager to be more mature than he had the capacity to be. So she wrote a rant about her parents of FB? He hacked her FB account, stole her post, aired it in public, uploaded it to YouTube, and destroyed her property - and is going to punish her for the 'privilege'. *I* was intimidated at the end of that video - can you imagine how a 15 year old girl who has to go on living with him would feel?

    Honestly, I'm disgusting and totally appalled...I can't believe anybody would think that this was in any way good parenting, appropriate behaviour, or going to do anything except terrorise a child who has obviously been stripped of her voice and her right to air her grievances.
    Couldn't have said it better.

    I would at the least, not speak to them again, and at the most, would run away and never see them again.

    Not to mention what will probably result in a display of this ridiculous behaviour across America. And next time it might not be a laptop getting shot, it might be HER.
    Really? You seriously think he is going to shoot his daughter?

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I genuinely think someone who whips out a gun to shoot a computer isn't far off waving one at a person and possibly shooting them.

    Yep. I think he would be capable of it for sure.

    Yes, I seriously think he would be capable of shooting a human being, possibly his daughter, possibly his wife, possibly a stranger on the street...he's clearly heavy handed with his weapon and has no qualms using it to incite fear in someone.

    Tbh I think it was ridiculous. IMO there are much more intelligent ways to discipline a child/teen.

    A question to those that approve of this father's actions...

    A married couple have a fight. The woman then gets on FB/a forum/other social network and calls him a jerk and has a vent about him. He then gets a gun and shoots up her computer for disrespecting him.

    Would this still be ok?
