It's not that I'm mad about him shooting the computer. Although that was quite creepy, that was probably an acceptable punishment. However, this stuttering attempt to shame his daughter though was the worst move he could have made aside from physical abuse.
There is so much money being spent in public schools for anti-bullying campaigns these days. Meanwhile is being the ultimate bully to his daughter by making it a gigantic public issue.
She is a kid. This will literally change her entire life, lol. Meanwhile, the dad is doing everything he can to avoid interviews and justify what he has done.
If that happened to me when I was a kid and all of my friends saw that, It's 50/50 suicide or run away. There was no reason to alienate his daughter and risk that type of shame and embarrassment for her.
It's maddening that there is even another side to the argument here when you consider the risk he took with his daughter and their relationship.
