lack of warmth: I am sure he already felt bad about the incident,
dickfreckle: Gotta tell you, in my 38 years of voracious reading this is the first time I've heard "frogmarch."
rocky_howard: Sorry, the Atari was a fad. A cheap, bad, ugly fad.
log_jammin: More: stupid, lessons, doorhandles
hasty ambush: "When Iraq is costing each household about $100 a month, you're paying a price for this war." - Barack Obama March 2008"Applying that same standard to means-tested welfare spending reveals that welfare will cost each household $560 per month in 2009 and $638 per month in 2010."
CutBoard: whidbey: Good. People need to realize that vigilantism is bullshiat, and I love it when the idiot who doesn't respect the rule of law is the one who gets punched in the nuts.I can only hope that you get to the age when you learn the difference between right and wrong.
Kevin72: . Enjoy your sequester, someone has to pay for the borrowing that financed the Iraq.
dittybopper: darthaegis:The guy didn't dole out punishment. No one is arguing that he intentionally hurt the kid, not even the kid's parents. He merely returned him to his parents. The kid got a bruise in the process. Big farkin' deal.
GAT_00: This may come as a surprise to you, but you don't get to assault a kid just because they did something bad.
GoldSpider: To the people here who are calling this guy a criminal, how do YOU think this kid's behavior is best corrected?
ktybear: If your so called 'real crime' is declining how come this?
doglover: HaywoodJablonski: rocky_howard: Here come the apologists, but have you noticed that the increase of crime is inversely related to how much we beat our kids?Kids need a good beating. Not sadistic abuse, of course, but a good smack every once in a while. No emotion or anger behind it, just slap.9/10Crime is down.Beatings are down.That's because of the decrease in pirates.
vrax: HaywoodJablonski: TerminalEchoes: GAT_00: This may come as a surprise to you, but you don't get to assault a kid just because they did something bad.Which is pretty much why our country is circling the drain now.Do you own and use a passport? I'm guessing not. The USA is the greatest nation in the world by a large marginSorry, I was pretty bummed when I came back from Sweden.
ktybear: the ha ha guy: rocky_howard: Here come the apologists, but have you noticed that the increase of crime is inversely related to how much we beat our kids?[i.imgur.com image 538x1030]/Clearly the decrease is because the government has been defunding programs against child abuseIf your so called 'real crime' is declining how come this?[upload.wikimedia.org image 350x234]
vrax: Kid didn't deserve to get hurt. Kid did deserve to be held accountable for his behavior. If that were here in the US and I knew where the kid lived, which it seems the old man did, I'd have called the cops and had them deal with the little shiat.
UltimaCS: "During the incident, David had accidentally pushed the lad's face into the door handle at his family's home in Darwen, Lancs, the court heard."Yeah, I'm sure the cops didn't believe him either when he "accidentally" shoved his wife down a flight of stairs.
PaLarkin: The brat's dad called the cops on the old man. So he must think what the kid did was ok.Since the brat's dad thinks it's ok to throw rocks at the windows of other peoples' homes, he shouldn't mind if other people throw rocks at the windows of his home.Many kids today aren't raised with the understanding they will be punished if they do something wrong. So it should be no surprise there are so many of them getting involved in crimes from vandalism to murder.If I did something like that and the guy frogmarched me home, my dad would have made sure I was punished. That punishment would have involved a belt. If I had broken a window, my parents would have taken any money I had and put it toward replacing the guy's window. I knew this when I was a kid so that's why I never went around trying to break windows in people's homes.
