Oh, grow up!

Look, if you tie your kid up with duct tape because he won't root for your favorite football squadron, the police are going to send you to bed without your supper.

This is such BS. Ok, there is alleged "other" incidents, but knowing how the family courts work, I am not ready to condem the man.

But women need to learn that just because they have the power to get the court to punish men for being men, doesn't mean they should. This is nothing. This is healthy father son behavior and I find it insulting that a man is being punished for being a dad.

Damn nation of weaklings.

Silly.
Dumb.

And legal. I don't care if the guy SuperGlued a miniskirt on the boy.

"I wouldn't agree with what he did, but legally a parent can restrain a child," she said. "I have no proof of emotional damage. ... I have to follow the law." -- The DA explaining why they didn't pursue felony charges.

Yep. Which makes me wonder why the dufus pled guilty to the Disorderly Conduct charge, unless there was something else going on as well.

Worshipping the actions of a bunch of men prancing about on a football field is ridiculous, but I'll by-Gawd defend it as being as legal as to worship superior Beings. How is duct-taping a 7 year old into a jersey worse than taking your 2 year old girl in to have her ears pierced?

Gawdamnit, this is football you are talking about. We kill people over the Alabama/Auburn game down here, what this man did was child's play. Heh.
