Motivating the kid to get his butt to school is not big deal. But this is why he should be in jail...

He was also convicted on one count of child endangerment for allowing his daughter, 2, and son, 3, to wander freely about his trailer park, wearing dirty diapers.</I

He also displayed a wooden paddle he had split on the boy's buttocks.

Hope he gets his buttocks split real good in jail.

I agree with you, Crawl_Space. This fvckwad needs some discipline.
 
2003-05-20 11:24:05 AM
I hope he gets sued by foster parents of america for perpetuating the "evil step-parent" stereotype.

Who are these people?

My Gawd! What is going on in Farkistan today?!? First there was the lady who rubbed hot fries in the eyes of a five year old child who accidentally spilled ice cream on her... then there was the father who went drag racing with his small child in the back seat... Now this assaht! Is this abused/assaulted kids day on Fark?

"Jailarity" is getting really old.
 
2003-05-20 02:38:51 PM
Moody, who lives in Brazoria County south of Houston, caught the attention of police last year after he punished the 8-year-old for missing the school bus by walking behind the boy on the five-mile journey to the school, repeatedly using the stun gun on him.

Jurors asked to try the stun gun out during the trial, and returned their verdicts a few hours later.


Try it out? "Here you go. Go nuts. Just make sure that you have a verdict when you are done playing."

Every college kid needs a stun gun to bring to parties. It's soooo funny to watch people stun themselves when they are drunk.
 
2003-05-20 02:39:38 PM
Every day is abused/assaulted kids day on Fark.

Agree.

If I could get my hands on this guy in private I would show him lots of uses for his stun gun. farking sadistic scum.
 
2003-05-20 02:39:59 PM
I'm all for discipline but this coont goes way too far.
 
2003-05-20 02:42:23 PM
Everyone knows you can't use a stungun on children! Pepper spray works much better.
 
2003-05-20 02:42:41 PM
I bet the kid never missed the bus again...
 
2003-05-20 02:42:56 PM
Frankly, I'm stunned by this
 
2003-05-20 02:43:00 PM
"where he's going, he'll be the pie."

wander freely about his trailer park, wearing dirty diapers


I'm shocked. Wait, no, his son was.
 
2003-05-20 02:43:32 PM
Where was the Mother? I have three children and do agree that sometimes a little more than a speach is needed. But if someone broke a paddle on one of my childrens asses or zapped them you would have to pry my hands from their throat.
 
2003-05-20 02:43:35 PM
Dad......I so miss you.

Q: How do you make a dumbass redneck child abuser say "Woof"?

A: Douse him with gasoline and use his stun gun on him.
 
2003-05-20 02:44:02 PM
I like how the jury tested it on themselves, then convicted a few hours later.

what a fvcktard.
 
2003-05-20 02:44:04 PM
"Motivating the kid to get his butt to school is not big deal. "

Oh, yeah, using a stun gun on an 8-year-old for missing the bus is perfectly acceptable.
/Sarcasm

I hope like hell you don't have any children , GEAH. You would be a danger to them.

Git yer beeehind to skool booy!
 
2003-05-20 02:44:12 PM
This is really old news, actually.
 
2003-05-20 02:44:38 PM
I think it's cool that the jurors asked to try out the stun gun. At least they showed interest in the case.

go texas
 
2003-05-20 02:44:38 PM

"He was also convicted on one count of child endangerment for allowing his daughter, 2, and son, 3, to wander freely about his trailer park..."


And then people on Fark wonder why God is always sending floods and tornadoes to trailer parks ? Why, it's just a good ole spring cleanin' !

 
2003-05-20 02:44:42 PM
The use of "jailarity ensues" was completely unncessary and detracted from a funny headline. C+
 
2003-05-20 02:44:44 PM
Goddamn, he should have used a cattle prod like every other respectable rural Texan. It's like a rite of passage for children where I grew up.

How do you think this story makes the stun gun industry fat cats feel? Apparently you can hit an 8 year old boy with it several times while he's walking 5 miles. How exactly is that going to stop a 300 lb adult attacker? "Ouch, I've been stung by a bee! Mommy!" That can't have a good effect on stun gun confidence.
 
2003-05-20 02:44:51 PM
MODS- can we get spellchecker built in? It's obvious that I can not spell or type for shiat today..
 
2003-05-20 02:45:57 PM
jurors wanted it, wonder what they found?

2 years seems a little extreme to me too. oh well :/
 
2003-05-20 02:46:44 PM
Ok, all I'm saying is that we consider universal sterilization. That's all I'm saying.

We sterilize every male at birth (I'm assuming this is possible) and make the reversal procedure free and easy to get. All they have to do is walk into any hospital at any age and ask for it, and the government will pay for it. We'd also need a constitutional amendment guaranteeing everyone the right to have this procedure at no charge.

Asshats like this gentlemen didn't want kids in the first place, but he was too stupid to wrap it up and now look what's happened. I assure you, this guy will never make time in his busy day to have the procedure reversed.
 
2003-05-20 02:46:53 PM
Walking 5 miles to school from your home in the trailer park - good to see the "American Dream" is alive and well in Texas.
 
2003-05-20 02:47:23 PM
Only 100,000 volts? Pfft... If he'd used the 300k or 500k, now THAT would be a problem.

I wonder if he has an air taser?
 
2003-05-20 02:47:34 PM
Muhgcee How about "Asshattery ensues"? Oh wait, that's even older and suckier.

*scratches head*

In this case I think it's safe to say that "Prison Rape" ensues...
 
2003-05-20 02:47:59 PM

Ouch. So the jury really tried this thing out on themselves in the jury room?

 
2003-05-20 02:49:28 PM
Some people just don't deserve to live.
 
2003-05-20 02:49:40 PM
Enave- that would be great but they weren't his children or at least the girl wasn't the article states that it was his step-daughter.
 
2003-05-20 02:50:00 PM
I, like others on this thread, am all for disaplining children. I got my butt spanked a few times in my life, and I think I turned out better for it. But there is a HUGE difference between spanking and a stun gun. Holy crapoli! If I were the mother I 'd beat this guy senseless.

What an asshat, I hope he gets raped in prison.
 
2003-05-20 02:50:15 PM
"Jurors asked to try the stun gun out during the trial, and returned their verdicts a few hours later."

OK, who did they try it out on? If the tried it out on themselves then who's the bigger dumb@$$?

A bad bee sting? Does this assbeef know what a bad bee sting feels like? Does he know what it feels like to an eight year-old child? Over and over again? Welcome to Deliverance Penitentiary, jerkoff. Bubba will make sure you enjoy your stay.

Nothing further, your Honor.

Police arrested Moody after he demonstrated the device on television news reports while wearing a cap that read "Marriage: the Leading Cause of Divorce." He also displayed a wooden paddle he had split on the boy's buttocks.

now why in the hell would you go on TV and show people weapons you used to commit crimes. this guy obviously isn't the brightest guy, but c'mon. most child abusers, even while being some of the lowest scum on the food chain, at least have the sense to deny it.
 
2003-05-20 02:52:07 PM
These are a much better learning tool. Not enough voltage to knock an 8 year old out, but plenty to give them a nice jump and leave the prodded limb numb for 2-3 minutes. It's also convenient, 3 feet long so you don't have to get up from your chair or down from your horse to give the little monster his learning. Also the whip-like prod extension makes an excruciating switch if the batteries are dead. My grandfather's favorite.
 
2003-05-20 02:52:48 PM
I'll bet the kid missed the bus on purpose, the little snot.
 
2003-05-20 02:53:30 PM
"Jurors asked to try the stun gun out during the trial, and returned their verdicts a few hours later."

Ever used one? They are quite intimidating. Sometimes police officers volunteer to get hit by one of those, or a tazer (the kind with the wires that shoot out) for a demonstration class... Few, if any, ever repeat the mistake.
 
2003-05-20 02:54:11 PM
Wow, that's a long headline... surprised they also didn't cram in "Duke Sucks" and "".

Nah, make it something that requires classes, licensing, and a credit check. You don't get a free car and license when you turn 16, why should you get a free child just because you can fark?
 
2003-05-20 02:55:12 PM
Umm. "".
