    love the link to his response too.
    apparently NOT an abusive psychotic, gun wielding murder topping off his kids, their friends and other random people that some people have claimed him to be.

    I just read the link and honestly, how can anyone deduce that he isn't 'psychotic' from that response?? He can talk his way around it until the cows come home, but at the end of the day, actions speak louder than words - and his actions were a bit, erm, crazy.

    I found this comment particularly ignorant:

    My daughter isn't hurt, emotionally scarred, or otherwise damaged
    If I was his daughter, I certainly wouldn't be admitting if I WAS hurt. And who knows if she's emotionally damaged

    You can go to his fb page and he updated it again and I cant believe people called CPS and the police on him here is where he talks about it.

    For those that feel the need to keep calling the police and CPS. lol

    Apparently both the local police and the department of social services are OK with it. Yes they came. Of course they came. They received enough "Oh my god he's going to kill his daughter" comments that they had to. I knew that the moment it went viral.. it was too late and it was inevitable. I'm only surprised it took as long as it did to be honest.

    The police by the way said "Kudos, Sir" and most of them made their kids watch it. I actually had a "thank you" from an entire detectives squad. And another police officer is using it in a positive manner in his presentation for the school system. How's about those apples? Didn't expect THAT when you called the cops did you?

    The kind lady from Child Protective Services looked all through the house, the yard, and found ours to be a healthy home. She saw the unloaded guns in their rack with the magazines removed and stored separately and safely. Funny thing: The case officer asked to see "the gun".... "Umm, sir, may I see the actual..umm.. weapon used for the video?" She wasn't at all scared of me but I could tell she doesn't like guns as a general rule. To each their own though. She was comfortable that I was adhering to NC gun safety regulations for the protection of minors, and that's all she needed. But of course if you want to continue, I'm just going to leave a pot of coffee on for the next officers who come by. (Digress: Maybe I can get Krispy Kreme to sponsor me with lifetime donuts? Oh God that would be heaven. Dunkin? Crap... KK all the way....)

    She asked if I minded if she interviewed my daughter privately but that I didn't have to agree. I let her meet in private and then she and I met for about an hour and a half. At the end of the day, no I'm not losing my kids, no one's in danger of being ripped from our home that I know of, and I actually got to spend some time with the nice lady and learn some cool parenting tips that I didn't know.. I use them on my 8 year old son, but not on my fifteen year old daughter.. but now I will! There were a few things I thought she was "too old" for, but after talking to the case worker, I feel like it's worth a shot to try them. Maybe I'll sell those secrets in my next book! (Seriously? You just got mad didn't you? I'm kidding. Besides, that would still only give me two pages of material- one parent tip page and one page on handgun selection techniques appropriate for different electronic destructive purposes.)

    Well.. since I can't STOP the phone from ringing, I'll just turn it off for the weekend, let everything go to voicemail, and those who know me can email me. lol. Y'all have a great weekend!

    Dangerous people, narcissists, sociopaths etc can all also be charming, witty, intelligent and alluring. Not that I think this man is, but he seems to appeal to some. Just wanted to say that charming does not always equal safe.

    I think what he did what not good parenting at all. I also doubt that the police found it funny or said it was good like he seems to think they did.

    I don't believe this for a second. I was terrified of my parents and the consequences of doing something wrong.

    I have also been a self-sufficient, law-abiding citizen since I moved out of home over 12 years ago.

    Not to say kids should have the sh!t beat out of them or be "scared" of their parents. But they should definately be scared of consequences of their actions.


    WooHoo! Another iphone!

    Who's not to say she's just putting up a brave front or considering this is coming from the dad that she is fine.

    You're one America, I've seen many Americans on facebook calling him a loony. As for him not being a psychotic, I just saw a nutter doing some fast talking.

    Wow that's scary the police actually condoned his behaviour. Clearly CP is a lot more thorough here as well. I don't think he would have lost his kids here but more would have happened than a tokenistic walk thru.

    Thank god I live in Australia. It's insane over there. As for his daughter not being effected, she's hardly going to admit that is she? I had a crazy parent like her, one that went OTT all the time and I was scared sh*tless. I would never had stood up to her and told her the effect it was having on me, much less CP.

    Actually its not I know 2 people that work in child care and what they have seen parents get away with is sad CPS over there would have yanked these kids from the home if the parents did that.
