Same here. Except it was my mom who was tied to the pole. She had to support us kids and put herself through school or whatever your favorite "I'm only stripping because ____________" story is.

Bet the kid doesn't wander off without telling his dad where he is going ever again.  Or maybe now that he knows that his dad essentially has no teeth when it comes to enforcing punishments, maybe he will.

There is ALWAYS someone on the Internet that endorses the child abuse.  *Always*.

Recently in Indiana we had a case where a coach made kids do "crab walks" on hands and feet on a hot track as punishment for missing a practice.  This resulted in second degree burns.  Half of the comments were in favor of the coach.

My Dad forced me to spell words correctly.  Over and over and over.  It was horrible.

No poles, but occasional zaps from a cattle prod.

I hope the kid and his dad live to a very old age and the kid winds up caring for his elderly, alzheimery dad and ties him to a pole out back to keep him from wandering. Bet the dad will never wander again!

I wouldn't touch this story with a 30-foot pole.

If he was still there, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Second degree burns when crab walking would be almost inpossible to distinguish from kids that just scuffed their hands crab walking.  He probably should have stopped if someone blistered, but maybe people didn't care because it's not much of an injury?

" a group of Jehovah's Witnesses tied up around his ankle..."
I read that part twice and still don't understand pole dancing in Florida.

And there will always be someone on the internet to complain about how we are cruel in punishing the precious snowflakes when they do wrong and we should give them hugs and candy when they break the rules.  *Always*

Bullshiat. I didn't say "hugs" and candy," I said don't offer a punishment that causes 2nd degree burns.  Plonk.  Goodbye.

Leaving him there to be attacked by wild Jehovah's witnesses? That's just plain mean. I bet they made him read the Watchtower over and over.

During school hours? What a dick.

Him being found by the Jehovah's Witnesses made this story lulzy.

Because you know this just reinforced their beliefs about everyone who isn't them.
