    Just walked in the house and on the Today Show they had this guy who was posted here on TS.com shooting his daughters computer. They now have a voting section on that matter. www.today.com They on the show think it was to harsh. I still say he did the right thing if it wasn't a staged event. Go and cast your own vote on the matter. Thought you all would like to know.

    Darn, it was 74% approved when I voted in favor of shooting it, this morning. I don't think Today cares one way or the other, its the controversy that makes people watch and ratings go up, and that is what they care about most.

    The people on the TODAY SHOW wanted him arrested for what he did. They thought it was bad for the kid. WELL the kid asked for it.

    From the first time I saw this I thought it was great. My own daughter has pulled some stunts like this on Facebook. Wish I would have thought to do that to her laptop.

    Shoulda used a 12ga. Would have made a bigger impact. I wonder if there are any traps that will throw a laptop? Can you imagine a whole squad shooting at a flying laptop at the same time? How cool would that be?

    He might have a job that requires him to be away from home, and the discipline was left to his ex or the step mother, and when he found out, he blew a gasket

    And a laptop

    This is and will continue to be what has to be done when you can not spank or whip(on the butt) you kids for bad behavier.

    It is not about the children, it is about right and wrong and punishment for wrong and praise for good.

    I am a firm beleiver in "Children should be seen and not heard".

    Spare the rod spoil the child.

    Just try spanking a teenager and you will soon learn what the inside of a prison cell looks like.

    I have seen some Lincoln hand throwers with the red spring that can throw three clay birds really well. It could probably fling a laptop if you took the battery out of it.

    I think if it was my daughter I would have wanted to sit her down and go over life and how much what she wrote realy hurt and why does she feel this way and told her to look around at world at what she has not doesn,t have but thats me, I just don,t think this is going to work at all . just my view

    .........that's my view too copper. It's pretty hard for daddy to raise a kid to be a responsible adult when daddy behaves like a spoiled child himself.
