Man Sentenced to Jail After Teasing Disabled Girl | ABC News - Yahoo!
Good punishment, or gone too far?
This guy is totally a disgusting slimy jerk. And i'm sick over what he's teaching his kids. But I think jail for this is too much actually. Though I kind of want to slap him upside the head..... And wish i could hug this little girl.
He threatened to kill the mother which is what he officially got the jail time for. I still think it was a little bit much but I'm betting there were plenty of other incidences that didn't make the article.
What a douche. And he's raising kids. So scary.
That story made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Disgusting. The threat is what got him the jail time and I bet he deserved it.
That makes me ill! And he is raising a child? That is terrifying. That the child has a knife and has already made threats of violence says that he is training his son to end up in jail just like him. It makes me wonder if there is a way for the state to intervene with his own child since he is obviously being raised in a violent climate.
Yes jail time is appropriate. He stalked, harassed, threatened, bullied, and so much more. You can go to jail for bullying, threatening, stalking etc.
From the article:
Bailey, she said, "was swinging a tow chain on his porch, saying he was going to choke me until I stopped twitching. I sent my kids with my mother-in-law to leave with them. My husband called the sheriff."
Stalking is a term commonly used to refer to unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person. Stalking behaviors are related to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them. The word stalking is used, with some differing meanings, in psychology and psychiatry and also in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offense. ref
Of course, jail time is completely appropriate. Teasing IS NOT the correct word used for this behavior.
He was not teasing, he was harrassing and threatening. He deserves every punishment he got
I agree he deserves it. scum.
This is just so sad. Breaks my heart to think that a grown man with children himself would mock an innocent little girl with obvious disabilities. Regardless of his dislike for her family, the taunting on the video is just sick. I'm appalled.
