Greg Horn, the man who was videotaped beating his daughters with a video cable for recording themselves twerking for Facebook, has now been indicted. According to ABC 22 in Dayton, Horn, 35, has been charged with child endangerment and corporal punishment.

The mother of the two girls, ages 12 and 14, helped bring about his arrest. When the girls got home from visiting their father, she noticed deep welts and open wounds on their thighs and she called the police. Because of the seriousness of the girls' injuries, a corporal punishment charge has been added. Though it was initially reported the girls were punished because they were caught making a video of themselves twerking for Facebook, the girls told the police they were being punished for trying to sneak out of the house. The ABC report notes this incident happened in the first week of Child Abuse Awareness Month.

It should be noted this isn't Horn's first brush with the law for harming children. In October 2012, he was arrested and charged with child endangerment. Horn will appear in court for arraignment April 16.

    Good for him for beating those girls like that he should be in jail!

    • SMH

      So what you are saying then is that he should have let his children behave inappropriately and potentially end up in a situation where they get raped or worse? Their mother is the one that should be in jail for not giving them another whooping when she found out the reason they got it in the first place. She is another enabler who will act surprised when her daughters grow up to be whores. That’s where they were headed until the father intervened, but now that he is locked up, they are free to be sluts with no fear of punishment. Get a clue. SMH.

        Violence breeds violence!! There are other ways of parenting that requires you to be involved their life more with communication, knowing all their friends, taking them to events, getting them involved in extra activities to keep them busy, showing them you are proud of them & you love them, etc… Not just lazy parenting by abusing them or putting fear into them, that is the easy way out. Lazy parenting!! Children need their parents undivided attention or they will look for it elsewhere. Not only did he abuse his children physically but also emotionally embarrassing them by putting a video up for the world to see. That is like the old days where they take you to the town square & whip you with a whip. Why would you want to punish your child the same way the white man did to their slaves, leaving open whelps all over their body. This is absolutely lazy parenting!! Would he rather be punished in the same way or spend time in a jail cell. What do people think you learn a lesson from? If bank robbers only got beat up for stealing 100’s of thousands of dollars don’t you think they would take that beating over spending years in prison? There would be a lot more bank robbers out there for sure.

        • SMH

          Well if verbal communication worked they wouldnt be making a twerking video for facebook would they? SMFH. If a child doesnt fear their parent the kid usually ends up having no morals and their attempted video proved just that. Its truly sad when people like you make excuses for up and coming sluts. They were out of line and their father did the right thing. If parents were still able to discipline their kids then we would have so many sluts walking this earth today. I will remember the names of those girls, and 8-10 years from now when we find out that they are either strippers or prostitutes, ask yourself again if the father did the wrong thing.

          • JustMyThoughtsToday

            I didn’t say he should have done nothing. I saying what he did was wrong & lazy parenting. there are better ways of parenting that require a whole lot of work.

  • http://twitter.com/ItzRoni Roni Clark

    I am so glad they got him!! He is an ANIMAL! A BEAST!! He needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!!

    • SMH

      You are a fool. What business does a 12 and 14 year old have sexualizing themselves on the internet for the world to see? The father should have given them 30 seconds each. With the mother supporting them, lets see how long it takes before they are either on a pole or a teen mother. In time they would have appreciated their father, but punishing another black man for being a father seems to be the norm these days. Cant wait for those girls to disgrace their mother. We all know its coming. Good luck to the father <3

      • RMfag

        You are an even bigger fool. These girls have welts.

        • SMH

          Well, the next time they consider behaving in any slutty manor those welts should bring them back to reality. If the father did nothing and they posted their video to FB got “likes” and men wanting to meet them to see how well they can “twerk”, where do you think they would have ended up in the next 2-3 years? Probably 15 and pregnant or in a ditch once the men interested are done with their “performances”. I cant stand enablers, and with their father behind bars they are free to be sluts at 12 and 14. Now there is something to be proud of. Hope they twerk their hearts out. SMH.

          • RMfag

            Who said I was an enabler.
            Then again beatings is the only thing your post-slavery mind can respond to.
            What type of mindset is he setting for them? What type of environment are they in? Has he showed them what their futures could become not being quality women?
            Doesnt matter, now the whole world knows they twerk on cam.

        It was the father.

        Maybe you got beaten too hard.

    • Alibaba

      I agree with you too.

  • ThetruthRuth

    If the mother was doing a good job parenting, then he wouldn’t need to punish them for posting such a morally depleting video. He may have been a bit extreme in his punishment but at least he was trying to correct a very bad behaviour.

    • yada

      Of course its the mothers fault, she wasn’t their but shes completely responsible, right? You can blame a women for not raising a kid right, which is just sexist in it self, because it doesnt just take the mother to parent a child, both are needed, and clearly the mother did what was best when she found out. Plus if you read the text it says the girls were punished for try to leave the house, not for twerking.

      • Thisis me

        You mad? lol

        • yada

          No, are you?

        • RMfag

          I guess you must have been beaten within an inch of your life.

          • http://twitter.com/aachild africanamericanchild

            RMfag, since you haven’t been spanked as a child, then why are you coming on here to push buttons. I am an african american child, never spanked but I know that my father and mother will spank me which I don’t want. That teaches me consequences. I just think that all kids need to know that you can’t do and have everything and the police and hospitals and mortuaries will be waiting for kids who turn into adults who don’t understand that bad choices can lead to pain.
            RMfag, don’t get offended at everything everyone writes. You would do better on a site with fairies and pixie dust.

      • PrettyDew

        I bet the mother only reported him because he left her! She did him a favour because now he can, with a clear conscience completely move on with his new family and forget about these lost putas.

        • yada

          When you assume stuff 99% of the time its wrong!!

          • PrettyDew

            Yada, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada…. you just mad because you probably one of those bad mothers who supports teenage girls future in slut-bucketdom, and give out condoms to 14 years old like they’re candy AND that’s a PRESUMPTION YADA!!!

          • yada

            Assumption, wrong again, I actually just graduated from college, no kids at all!!!!

          • PrettyDew

            Impressive, Paul Mitchell got another one! Did you really expect me to know who the scrub-brush you are?!??! Get over that Certificatedotcom and don’t burn your client’s scalp, graduate!!

            N.B. No kids for you is a good thing keep it that way, goat.

          • yada

            You are never ending with the assumptions, I see with you its actually 100% wrong. Funny, but still so wrong!!!

          • yada

            Wow, the assumptions is never ending, it looks like with you its actually 100% wrong!!!

        • RMfag

          And not because he daughters were abused on camera.

          • Samantha

            your both are crazy. I hope you don’t have any kids. I’ve raised a college student and respectable woman. When you have then post a comment. She got her behind spanked is she needed it.

          • RMfag

            Who spanked you for that grammar?
            The abuse was over the top and he should have handled those issues better as a father.

    • RMfag

      And now they dont have a father. Smart idea!

  • ayochaser

    Not the best move but I’d prolly be pissed if I had a 12 y.o. daughter twerking for facebook but then again its not that serious

    • yada

      I would be pissed but I would do what he did, plus they were punished for twerking, they were punished for trying to leave the house.

  • NegRican24

    I knew this was coming now let’s get a petition going to get him off this hook because he doesn’t deserve to be on it. If more parents were there to discipline and guide their kids in the right way these kids/teens wouldn’t have as many issues as they do.

    • RMfag

      Oh please, most kids in the system got their butts beat more than ones outside the system.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Scminka Ola Rhodes

      This comment section that black people love using violence against their children, more than any other race on earth. So if violence against children works why are so many black people in jail? or suffering from mental illness and drug abuse? Riddle me that BatMan.

  • Thisis me

    Yes punish the man for discipline. They could have been out arresting a rapist or child molester the REAL animals.

    • Nene

      Thank you. Those be the type of people they let off. This world is crazy right now, we are in the last days. The bible said in the end of days what is wrong will be right and what is right will be wrong.

      • Thisis me

        That is so true. It’s crazy how everything just switches to the opposite. Like people just turn rotten inside.

      • RMfag

        That was abuse- maybe if he was a real father they wouldnt have even thinking of making it.

        • beebee

          please most of those hits hit the floor….teenagers do what they can get away with..i bet they dont do it again

          • yada

            I bet they will, and next time much worse. Its just a false premise to assume that just because a kid is beat that the issue would stop, next time they just wont get caught. A whooping never stopped me from doing what I wanted to do (and my mothers beat downs was no joke), just like the death penalty or the fear of jail doesn’t stop someone from killing or committing a crime. Respect is what it take, not fear and violence. And seriously if beatings worked then the black community should be great, but were not, so maybe other forms is needed.

          • RMfag

            Best comment of the thread.
            Most blacks got their behinds beat, yet we have the worse crime rates.
            Maybe no violence is the answer.

          • yada

            Thank you, I just never understood what was wrong with punishment and talking to your child. I would complete pick my kids brain if I saw them disrespecting themselves by twerking like little sluts. I seriously think its lazy to beat your child because it last for like a few minutes tops and the issue is never corrected, the kid just makes sure they dont get caught next time. Plus I have two cousin that use to get their asses whooped so bad, I mean BAD, and they both have been shoot numerous times from gang activity (luckily still alive) and in and out of jail, one is still locked up for attempted murder charges, so you cant tell me that it works, because I’ve seen first hand that it has the potential to utterly mess a kid up and completely lose all self worth.

          • yada

            Thats why I call beating your child lazy parenting, because it takes more of your time to punish your child which is the right way to do it. Someone earlier said something very interesting, for instance if you take an inmate and gave them the option of going to jail for a week or getting beat down, im sure they would pick the beat down. But for parents it takes a lot to monitor your child’s activity (which you should be doing anyway) by stopping them from doing things they love. Beating your kid only creates kids/ adults that also result to violence when mad and its just not the way, plus what do we see in the black community, violent and agressive people that usually resort to violence when disrespected in some way.

            the folks who moms did not beat them the ones acting stupid in public and not thinking we got two generations of the stupidest black folks ever out here

          • RMfag

            Not true, the most ratchet always had a belt on their behinds and not much else. Violence and cursing and ratchetness is all they know and understand.

          • Ray C

            There is a difference in discipline and being ratchet. Parenting is hard work just like anything else in life. Some people are always looking for the easy way. Some people thnk it’s just a simple as sending to school to learn and beating them at home when they don’t do right. We have a society now that wants everything to be easy and “microwave simple.” You can’t just let your kids run wild, not teach discipline, and show little involvement then when they get in trouble try to beat them back to step one. You have to be doing the little things all the time. And when they get out of line you have to mix up their punishments.

          • RMfag

            I mostly agree with your comments.

          • Anabelle Whitepaws

            That’s a completely false statement.

            TRUE!

          • devin dodson

            That can be felt the same way other children of other races call their parents of their name are the smartest out here not. It’s how your raised who’s at the head of your household reflects what type of people they turn out to be black/white js.

          • Samantha

            I see misinformed like her. Crow a clue.

          • RMfag

            I have enough thx.

          • Ray C

            We have the worst crime rates because we’ve let our households get out of control. I doubt if you did a study you’d find much difference between the home life of violent whites and violent blacks. What’s the excuse for non-blacks who commit violence and were never beat? Not beatings alone won’t create a perfect. No one consequence will fix a problem in any area of life. Most of these kids out there committing crimes or getting loose and wild online are probably being allowed to run wild with very little structure at home. No one is even taking time to tell them right and wrong on even the smallest little details. Kids have changed probably because parents have changed. Too many parents today just don’t want to put in the hard work it takes. Being a parent is kind like watching these shows where the try to save a bar, restaurant, or business from closing. There are so many little small things that make a big impact over a few years time that many would never think of.

          • rachet

            Thank you! Plantation mentality.. and he had the nerve to tape it. I remember seeing this video when it first came out, and I thought to myself if those were my girls, I would have pressed charges.. kudos to their mother!

          • Anabelle Whitepaws

            What? My WHITE HUSBAND grew getting his A$$ beat by his White Father. It has NOTHING to do with race.
            Also… you’ve gotta come better than just a mere ‘we have the worse crime rates’. Statistics please.
            BTW… we haven’t the most crime rate nor do we hold the majority of people on welfare. Get it together and speak it correctly because your post makes you sound ignorant.

          • Trutysayer

            Well you do realise that is absolutely now evidence that it doesn’t work. I could easily argue that things could be worse within the black communities.

          • Ray C

            It might have never stopped you, but I’m sure it stopped you from doing at least a few things. At least it taught you just not to run wild with it. There are a lot of things I parents didn’t want us to do we kept finding ways to do, but at least many of us have a little more sense and got in a little less trouble than kids with parents who were less strict or let them do whatever with no discipline. It’s not just about beatings. There is more to it than that. It’s rare you find a parent who is doing everything perfect, but beating their kids is the only problem. It’s all about how you use it as a tool and if you’re just beating kids just for the sake of beating. If you’re disciplining and teaching that’s one thing. If you think kids are supposed to be like dogs and just sit in their rooms and never make a noise or get in any trouble that is something else. You might be a special case, but you’d be the only person I’ve ever met that got whoopings for anything that never tried to change their behavior whatsoever for what they were getting a whooping for or at least thought twice about doing the same thing the same way again. Kids these days are running the show.

          • What?

            Preach!

          • RMfag

            I bet they will do whatever they want since their fathers are behind bars.
            And most of those hit them, stop justifying it.

        • Samantha

          Real Father? your a silly itch that must not have kids. I don’t care how real a parent you are your kids are going to test you. If he wasn’t a father he would not have cared one and two they would not have been visiting him. He can discipline them now or the law will do it for him later.

          • RMfag

            Welp he sure passed that test.
            Not only do his daughters know what his limit is but they now know how to get over. Congrats.

        • Ray C

          I think he did possibly go overboard with it. I don’t see a problem whooping your children for making twerking videos. I’m not sure if he’d ever seen them doing it and told them no to and they continually acted like he was just running his mouth or not

        • Anabelle Whitepaws

          GTFOH with that BS…

    • Sara

      Are you serious?! PLEASE do some research. Beating your kids with a cable cord is NOT discipline. That is abuse. Discipline is teaching them not to do wrong in the first place.

      • LeGioNoFZioN

        get over yourself, sometimes in certain circurcumstances, that is exactly what you need to do. If your children have no fear of you, you have no control over them. You don’t need to beat them excessively or frequently, but some behaviours deserve a beating.

        • cafelucia

          controlling thru fear does not work. “you have no control if they dont fear you” You sound like a classic abuser.

          • LeGioNoFZioN

            sound like is not the same as being. My family is west indian and my father rarely had to beat us. but one of my siblings was a classic rebel and would never listen and sometimes he needed a beating. saying a child never needs a beating is the same as saying kids always need to be beat, it is child abuse. a parent should know their child, and discipline according the the level of disobedience.

          • RMfag

            And who is checking for the west indies?

          • LeGioNoFZioN

            what you mean ? I’m not saying the west indies is perfect, many do go overboard, but the converse is no better and that is my argument

          • RMfag

            Many go overboard, thats the point. To the point where not much progress is made.
            And Im pretty sure these girls got azz-whoopings to this point before, I didnt hear any crying.

          • yada

            Those girls looked very familiar to getting beat, they assumed the position and everything, and took turns! Clearly it doesnt work because if that was the case it would only take a few until its corrected, but no, these girls were 12 & 14, sounds like bad parenting to me.

          • Ray C

            Well you’re not at their house 24-7, so you don’t know. You don’t know what other things he’s stop them from doing. And just because you accept your punishment when you get caught, doesn’t mean you did something without caring about punishment and will do it again. He over did it. He should have shown more control, but the mere fact he was going to give them a whooping was not the main problem

          • Ray C

            I completely disagree with you. There are different degrees and types of fear. If you clean your room because you think your parents won’t let you play with your toys, that’s fear. You fear losing something you love. In relationships and as parents you do things to make the other person happen out of fear of loss of connection. Kids are not adults. Kids don’t think like adults. In their earlier years they just need to do what you tell them because you’re the parent and they’re child. They don’t need to understand it. Now you shouldn’t scared to lose your life if you get in trouble. People say it’s about respect. Your kids have a lifetime to learn to respect you. I don’t think your child is going to respect you anymore if you put them in timeout or don’t let them go somewhere as punishment. Aren’t you in fact doing the same thing? They’re not doing right because they respect you. They’re doing right because they want something or don’t want to be without something not because they simply respect your opinion over their own. It’s not until they get older that they’re going to see you were right and they were wrong.

        • RMfag

          That was over the top.

        • Brianna

          He left scars and bruising on them. Beat them until their bloody and bruised? That alone normally causes for an outcry from the public, why so different now? Do we tell rape victims they deserved to be raped because they had on a certain outfit? Do we excuse men who beat their girlfriends and wives because they feel the women should be doing their womanly duties? A lot of this seems sexist driven to me. If you all watch “Beyond Scared Straight” you’d see aggressive punishment DOES NOT WORK! When has aggressive punishment ever worked in society or the planet?

        • yada

          I wound never want my child to fear me, respect me yes, but never fear me, I want my child to feel comfortable with approaching me in every situation, and if they fear you they wont. They would go to the outside world before you and thats not acceptable. Fear was needed for slaves also, do you want to raise slaves or children that can grow up to respect everyone without the use of violence. Like seriously, what wrong with putting a kid on punishment for a week and only allowing them to do things that they hate which is specific to each child. The only time i see myself putting my hands on my future child is if they hit me or someone else, then its on. But not this situation, if I saw my daughters twerking I would put them on punishment, talk to them, and if that doesnt work seek out professional help, but this is just not the way, it does more harm then good and these girls will only grow up to hate their dad.

      • JustMyThoughtsToday

        I agree with you 100%
        Children now-a-days are overexposed to adult content that their parents are watching, listening to, etc… But instead of paying attention to their children or being aware of their children’s environment & continually monitoring it they just beat them when they repeat what they are exposed to. This is just lazy parenting. Violence breeds violence!! There are other ways of parenting that requires you to be involved their life more with communication, knowing all their friends, taking them to events, getting them involved in extra activities to keep them busy, changing the radio station to something “kid friendly”, reward good behavior by showing them you are proud of them & you love them, etc… Not just lazy parenting by abusing them or putting fear into them, that is the easy way out. Lazy parenting!! Children need their parent’s undivided attention or they will look for it elsewhere.

        Not only did he abuse his children physically but also emotionally, embarrassing them by putting a video up for the world to see. That is like the old days where they take you to the town square & whip you with a whip. Why would you want to punish your child the same way the white man did to their slaves, leaving open whelps all over their body. This is absolutely lazy parenting!! Would he rather be punished in the same way or spend time in a jail cell? What do people think you learn a lesson from? If bank robbers only got beat up for stealing 100’s of thousands of dollars, don’t you think they would take that beating over spending years in prison? There would be a lot more bank robbers out there for sure.

      The way he “punished” those kids was beyond disgusting!

If bank robbers only got beat up for stealing 100’s of thousands of dollars, don’t you think they would take that beating over spending years in prison? There would be a lot more bank robbers out there for sure.

          I can only semi-agree with you. I agree that the problem is lazy parenting,but I don’t think physical discipline should be completely ruled out. Kids are overexposed I agree. There is no way a 9 year old girl can’t recite something they have to recite in school or church, but they know all the word to Mirah Carey’s “Touch My Body.” There are too many parents these days who think some of the small things like that are too old fashion. They let their kids listen to anything. They let them see any kind of movie. They pay no attention to who their friends are. But the problem is these same experts who correctly tell us that beating kids is not the main ingredient to success are the same ones telling us that kids have almost equal deciding power to their parents. They’re the same ones telling us never to make kids do anything.

          • JustMyThoughtsToday

            I don’t have to beat my kids nor do I let them have equal decision power. It is just common sense & hard work, really. I do what makes sense to me not what everyone is saying. My daughter is 7 & the only music she knows is the Disney channel (satellite radio). She doesn’t know one Hip hop song, or sexual in-your-window pop song. My kids don’t fear me they respect me. I give them the same respect they give me & they are great children.

            I had friends in highschool that did the most ridiculous things in or out of school, including excessing drinking & drug use. I simply declined their offers & they were fine with it. Peer pressure is real, but it doesn’t HAVE to control you.
            Also, radio stations that are kid-friendly are non-existent. Sex sells, so the radio will play ANYTHING related to sex. Why is it that my 11 year old brother is eager to “eat pussy”? He tells me this, & I’m ashamed that my parents continually buy him rated M games & the ability to use a headset on xbox & listen to Lil’Wayne, Drake, Terminator, or whoever the puck is famous for advocating sex at a young age. Family Guy & South Park should only be seen by adults, yet I hear of & SEE young children (4-8 years old) watching it…& their parents are fully aware.
            Believe what you want, but this generation is clear lazy parenting. I just happened not to conform to “social norms” my middle-high school & (now) college years.

      Children now-a-days are overexposed to adult content that their parents are watching, listening to, etc… But instead of paying attention to their children or being aware of their children’s environment & continually monitoring it they just beat them when they repeat what they are exposed to. This is just lazy parenting. Violence breeds violence!! There are other ways of parenting that requires you to be involved their life more with communication, knowing all their friends, taking them to events, getting them involved in extra activities to keep them busy, changing the radio station to something “kid friendly”, reward good behavior by showing them you are proud of them & you love them, etc… Not just lazy parenting by abusing them or putting fear into them, that is the easy way out. Lazy parenting!! Children need their parent’s undivided attention or they will look for it elsewhere.

      Not only did he abuse his children physically but also emotionally, embarrassing them by putting a video up for the world to see.

    wow….. smh whatever happened to spare the rod spoil the child, and who comes to their defense later when they are off into some crime… then people ask “where are the parents” oh he’s locked up for chastising his children for every bit of 15 seconds a piece (equaling to 30 seconds) . Every child is different and there are various forms or punishment. I feel for the dad. He disciplined his kids out of love. Showing them their are consequences for their actions. Now lets think what if those girls didn’t get the appropriate discipline or no discipline at all go out and get into some trouble (and it’s easy to do so) then what? The parent is held accountable again, or his kids get into something that father nor mother cant get them out of, and when the Law beats you… oh… 15 to 30 seconds is minuscule to any amount of time of incarceration and being labeled which effects you productivity in life… smh WOW!

    • Nene

      Agreed. Now let it would have been them sneaking out the house then getting caught up in something they butts can’t get out of. If they keep it up they are going to wish they dad was there to beat they butts.

      • yada

        There are much better ways to discipline your child, what he did is absolute abuse and he should be punished. To me putting your hands on your child is lazy and disrespectful to the kid because you could simply take things away from them which is way more effective. When I was young, I would pray for a whooping over being on punishment and having to be locked in a house all day just reading, no TV!!! It was torture! This is just lazy parenting to me, because it does way more harm then correcting the issue and its not like a whooping even stops anything, just like the death penalty doesnt stop people from committing murder. You need to teach your kid how to respect you, not fear you.

        • http://twitter.com/the_great__one Jafar Martin

          the EFF r u talking about?? Are u insane?!? If two YOUNG teens had the gall to try & sneak out of their FATHER’s house then how many fu*ks do u suppose they give about being banned from tv. & fb & such??? seriously? Media is all around us these days. They would get access to the internet or whatever else they’d like. While I do admit the punishment appeared harsh. it was over very quickly. & if these “soft” punishments were as effective as u claim…then our penal system would be splendidly effective….no shortage of murderers, thieves, rapists, con artists, drug dealers etc here in this country….But I digress, All I’m saying is there is nothing wrong w/ tough love & discipline. We have kids out here shooting people & robbing others..no values etc. & the first thing that gets said is “it starts in the home….the parents” No that’s not lazy parenting…that’s active parenting. For the mother to have these girls’ father arrested for disciplining them when they were wrong sends a very foul message. & further corroborates my most recent theory regarding the imbalance between men & women in families. I thought that was disgraceful. His anger shows he loves his daughters. Abuse would be not acknowledging them…Not contributing…not giving AF.

    So the viscous cycle continues. Sad how ironic it is that in trying to prevent his girls from becoming statistics he himself became one.People never take time to evaluate a situation holistically all we ever focus on is the “train wreck”. Just think of how many times this man may have tried to discipline them in a more socially acceptable manner. Honestly i’m not a parent, but when you have reached your wits end with wayward children what can you do? Is allowing your children at 12 and 14 yrs old to begin taking birth control and roam the streets freely really an option? I believe this man was extremely fed up, and though he hurt these girls physically it will pale in comparison to the emotional pain they will face if they continue to try to experience life before they are mentally capable of handling the consequences!

    • RMfag

        I never made any assumptions! I simply posed a few thought provoking questions to the parents out there ,and gave my opinion at the closing of my comment. No matter how incriminating something looks I believe everyone deserves to have all of the facts present before being.publicly condemned and wether those facts prove to be justication or incriminatiion for this man is not what is most important what is important Is that these children will recieve the proper Intervention hopefully for their behavior as well as their parents!

    • Maria

      Contraceptives are better than abortions, that’s for sure. I’m seeing more middle schoolers pregnant than ever before. Prevention of pregnancy works better than teaching abstinence, because the media is teaching us that sex is awesome & that sex means love.
      Don’t believe me? Tune into the popular radio station near you for 5 minutes.

      • Guest

        It certainly is , point well taken, In my opinion the only thing the media should be teaching a child is Current Events Iit is the parents job to instill a strong set of values in the child !there is a popular saying “Whatever is done in the dark will come to the light!” There is no form of contraception that will 100% prevent Herpes or any skin to skin contact sti! Children at that age have very little impulse control! My fear is that by offering contraception tbis early young girls may mistake it for a remedy for all consequences!

      So, the fact that these little girls were sexualizing themselves for the world to see on an international medium; isn’t that serious? That thinking is what’s wrong with society today. Children are much too sexualized. There are no boundaries presented by many of these parents of today; and not just the ratchet ones. How much do you want to bet that they probably not above average ( maybe even average) on the academic level? I teach middle school, in a 100% Black setting; and I just today I had 7th graders going down the line naming types of alcohol. These same kids don’t know how to write a complete sentence, that is grammatically-correct, with no misspelled words, etc. Ask them what subject-verb agreement is; or even more simple, the difference between a noun and an adjective. They can’t tell you. They also can’t tell you very much when it comes to math, as most aren’t proficient in subtraction, multiplication, or division. I can’t speak for the previous schools they came from. I can speak for the way myself and many others bend over backwards, stay late, come early, set conferences (for which many parents don’t show up). Yet, the skill levels remain the same.
      It all starts at home. Heck, I received a complaint from a parent that I was communicating with her too much. Yet, her child has maintained an F; all year. The worse part, is that he is actually one who isn’t below level, academically.
      I’m not condoning abuse. There is a difference between corporal punishment and abuse. But at least this dad was trying to do what he know how to create consequences for their actions.
      I observe 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls letting boys touch their privates; or trying to coerce the boy to do sexual activities with thems. I witness boys disrespecting girls to their faces by saying inappropiate things to them or giving them inappropiate names, based on their body parts. This is on a daily. Tell me how this kind of thing is not a problem. If a grown woman wants to sexualize and demean her value by posting twerk videos, let her. We are talking about children, whse parents are supposed to protect them.

    • SMH

      Sorry, I am a black woman and I agree with the father 100%. If more of these young women had fathers that gave a sh*t, then maybe we would see less trash roaming the streets and the internet. Its a shame that this man is being punished for being a father.

      • Wepo1

        I do have problem with what he did!

        I was just pointing out the irony of the situation!

        You know the lack of black fathers and the overwhelming amount of black baby mamas in the black community!

        If he goes to jail it’s because of his own stupidity because he recorded that isht and he used a cord!

        He overreacted because at the age those g!rls are they should known their boundaries and for them to be doing something he is against shows his poor parenting!

        He will be punished and to see a black man being punished for disciplining his children is ironic!

    People are mad because he got arrested? So you can’t beat your girlfriend but you can beat your daughters and leave wounds and welts to so called teach a lesson? Sexist black community.
    This is less about being concerned about these girls future but more about how we view black girls and black women.
    The fact that these girls were presumed future strippers and rachets really lets me understand how you all have internalized negative stereotypes about black women. When white society accuses a black man for being a thug for having tattoos and wearing certain clothing we cry injustice, prejudice racism and generalizations. I’ve yet to see videos of white girls persecuted for doing things their community and whites applauded physical violence and abuse towards their women as a form of discipline. Black womena re viewed as unattractive unruly and subhuman so violence and abuse in the excuse of trying to “civilize” us makes it seems as it is warranted. It’s like story about the football player killing his child’s mother. The first thing people did was empathize with him and say well it’s something she had to do”. So many videos of black girls being abused comes the same responses “It’s something they did or they deserved it”. Male patriarchy and sexism really has driven some black women away from her own community and has a lot of black women to be angry and resentful. It’s like trying to get away from oppression only to step into it again.

    • http://twitter.com/therealShanika slappin Obama haters

      Teenagers of all races need discipline- not just Blacks. All teenage girls can become sluts if you let them. No one is being stereotypical, in my opinion: if you are posting twerk videos on YouTube and sneaking out of the house, people are going to associate that with sex(ual behavior). What do you think they were sneaking out to do? Really? I, as a parent, sympathize with the father simply because I know how difficult it is to see your child(ren) headed down the wrong path. I also understand how exhausting disciplining your child(ren) can be when you’ve tried everything that you can think of. When a child is born, both parents sign what I consider to be a contractual obligation to be held responsible for said child until emancipation.

      • Brianna

        Teach our black daughters and kids that violence is the only way we want to show them we love them? How ironic, black people sure can be hypocritical with our fight violence with violence solution. So there’s no other way to discipline our children? So when all fails beat the crap out of them until they get scars and wounds, sounds a lot like the slave days doesn’t it? So what happens when you beat the hell out of them and they still turn out rebellious and out of control? Anymore excuses?

        “black” sluts are just caught more often because of stereotypes.

They are open with their parents, “because it’s just a phase”, so they feel safer.

          I’m not assuming…I am deducing based off ur own statements. But that’s neither here nor there. I think this entire situation could have been approached in a diff manner. But to lock a man up for disciplining his children for DISRESPECTING themselves & their father is absurd..for you to applaud the incarceration of a black man by a black woman for being outraged by his daughter’s dangerous & irresponsible behavior is equally absurd. What exactly do u think this action will accomplish?? Do u think it will improve his approach to parenting that you find so egregious?? Or does it undermine his authority as a father as far as his children are concerned. And as far as ur argument about violence…some violent act are unnecessary while others are very much called for. In case you are unaware…violence is a part of life. & I am not only referring to violence from human to human….but in all aspects of life. Bc u happen to place a value on it that paints a neg light on the subj does not discount it’s place in the world. & lastly I mentioned several questions besides “wtf r u talking about” in my initial response that u never bothered to address…If we’re going to have a discussion or debate over a topic…lets address all points.

  • yada

    Plus it literally says that the initial report about the girls being disciplined for twerking is WRONG, they got whooped because they tried to snick out the house. And still why bet them over twerking, if my daughters were acting like this then a serious conversation and intervention is needed to curb this behavior, not a beat down because its clear that a lack of self respect is present which is a result from bad parenting in the first place. Plus we tell our daughter not to act a certain way but allow our sons to be completely disgusting hoes, but im sure because they are guys they cant be hoes, right?

    All of you who think these two girls deserved that are sadly mistaken. That man physically abused those girls. Those girls will be scarred for life. I hope he is prosecuted to the fleet extent.

  • Baroness

    So when I was 14 I had a watch party for Boys in the Hood on a school day with a mixed group. My folks found out moms lay me across that bed bare bottom and took a belt to me, still have the welt mark on my left thigh. Did she deserve to go to jail at the time I thought worse she of happen to her but the answer is no, she was protecting her own. In her mind anything could of happened I could have been raped and killed or one of my friends could have been, somethings could have been broken, could have set my entire family up for a robbery later on down the line (this was in D.C. mid nineties), but she did what she thought would be a sure deterrent from me making that mistake of taking my safety and that of my family lightly again. At 14 things seem innocent and harmless and at 35 ( my moms was 32 ) you know differently and you try to impart that into you kids by any means neccesary. I bet lil shawty won’t twerk nothing else on youtube, I still don’t have watch parties.

    This country has so many problems & this is what & who they decide to attack first, SMH. He disciplined his daughters & he is wrong, if they would’ve been in the streets committing crimes everyone would’ve asking “where are their parents?” What does this country really want from us parents?

      Children who arent dumb-ess then again that may be too much.

    It’s so sad how so many black people are defending this man and saying this girl deserves it. This is why so many African Americans have issues, its like its normal to be abused in yoir community. I’ve met so many African American women that have told me that they’ve been physically beat by their boyfriends and ex’s yet they defend them still. And they have the scars to show them, im sure you animals on this site would defend your african American men that literally act like animals and quote frankly are. That why there’s so much black on black crime in the states, you animals are so uncivilized. This video made me cry, these black girls have probably been abused their whole life and will most likely be abusers too. you women defending him would probably stay with your worthless men if they sexually abused your child too, and say my daughters probably came onto him first, thats why you guys are such failure baby mommas and hardly ever wives.

  • Lala

    I would rather get locked up for ‘disciplining’ my child than let them disrespect themselves and disrespect me!! And when I get out, oh, when I get out…..

    • RMfag

      And youll be back in jail.
      Do you know today that some kids actually pop a cap in their parents behinds?
      You better stop playing with todays youth.

      • http://twitter.com/the_great__one Jafar Martin

        you sound silly. & in fact speak to my point. If a child does not fear and/or respect their parents to the degree that ur saying they will shoot them then the order of things is out of balance. No child should presume to threaten or bully their elders…stop it.

        • RMfag

          Kids shouldnt be playing with their elders or being disrespectful. Thats my point.
          But you really do have to realize that today’s generation is way different than all of the last ones. Children either fear their parents too much or they dont care too much.

          Them old ways are ending fast.

      • DIVADCR

        And this makes more sense than what LaLa was stating how? Now there’s a murder charge and life or death row! Moreover kids better stop playing with their parents., all thats required is food, housing, and clothing and since we know they left the vid on to tape, all thats required is the bare minimum which is what they would get no designer anything, no electronics anything, mom calls up needing extra no, twerk it out!

  • MAG

    Beating the girls with the cable was extreme, however I do believe they deserved to get a beating. More kids now-a-days need to get beatings. Maybe the world will end up with a lesser amount of “ho’s and whores”. It’s just sad he chose to beat them with a cable. But, we have to keep in mind the way of the world now, he could have slapped them and still been indicted for child abuse. You can no longer touch your children without it being a crime. Now these girls will continue to twerk and upload videos to facebook (or sneak out of the house).

    • RMfag

      Im a h0 and I got more beatings than most.
      He should have put more focus into raising young ladies for future quality son in laws than trying to beat them senseless.

  • DarlingNicky Clyde

    I have not seen the video as it has already been removed. I will say this: I applaud this man. Even though the mother and him appear to be separated, he clearly cares about his daughters. What father wouldn’t go batsh!t crazy upon seeing his 12 & 14 year old twerking and dancing suggestively on the internet. I am sure the comments on their twerking video sent him to the moon as well. Listen, my mother was from the south. She was what you call high yella and looked Latino…but she sure as hell beat my @zz like she was a black sharecropper lol. And I got beatings with a belt for anything I might have done wrong. Yes I had welts…but I am a better person for it today. Would I use these same tactics for my children when I have them? More than likely not. I would probably use it as a last resort…not all children need to be spanked. Not all punishments should be with a belt. But I am just imagining what went through this man’s mind when he saw his girls dropping it low and sweeping the floor with it…and remember those comments lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chase.mac.56 Chase Mac

    one minute black men don’t care and the next they care too much . I saw the video and those girls got off lightly IMHO

  • dlea10

    there is a difference between SPANKING and BEATING! and many parents just don’t know how to tell the two apart.

  • kimaras31

    Reading this one is a little different. Deep welps and open wounds, and with a video cable. Thats a bit much. I mean I do beleive he was being a dad. No father should sit back and watch his 12 and 14 year old pretty much audition for Video Hoe, sneaking out of the house and other things. He could have do the same thing with a belt. He was being a dad, he just went to the extreme. I dont think he should be chargered.

  • iHM

    …I just saw the video for the first time. That’s it? That looks like a normal whooping that any kid would get. They were just all extra and crying like little babies about it. Bet they weren’t crying like 4 year olds when they were wiggling their butts in a camera to try to turn men on sexually. Disgusting tramps deserved all of that lame lil whooping AND some. But the lawmakers are encouraging this kind of s|ut female behavior and will punish the father for teaching his child the consequences of doing wrong. That’s why places like my country (Iran) hate the idea of adopting the Western / American culture. We don’t want it to be like that in our countries, so we go to extremes to keep these backwards values out. I hope this case is thrown out of jail. Father is allowed to discipline daughter. It was just an extension cord after all, not something that could really damage them.

  • Lex

    Now, I think that it is good that he actually was IN his daughter’s life to punish them. Sadly, Most kids do not have that. I am grateful to be 16 going on 17 and having BOTH my parents in the same household. There’s more boundaries and order and I watch what I say and do. More importantly, there’s respect. But think about it, you do not need to whip your kids with cords and wires to the point of welts and open wounds. There is a distinct difference between punishment/negative reinforcement and beating your kid like our ancestors were once beaten. When you hit a kid like that, it does nothing but make the kid want to go against the parent even more, trust me, I know. And you don’t want to instill fear in a child because that will make them not want to talk to you about anything.. that’s why some kids don’t have a relationship with their parents, because their parents would rather beat the truth/words out of them, instead of talking to them. One thing I want to say is..You should never hit your kids while you’re angry. You shouldn’t beat your kids while you have other things going on. You’ll take all the anger out on them and that man was clearly angry. The spanking ended up being more aggressive than it should have been, you could clearly see he was putting all his strength into it. I agree, What they did was terrible and it could have attracted negative attention from God knows who…, but tell me… what is more negative than beating your daughters and posting it for the world to see? It should have never been posted to begin with.

  • David Alassane

    Don’t yall realize that this is a
    legacy from SLAVERY??!!?? Why on earth would you perpetuate that legacy. And
    some wonder WHY there is so much Domestic Abuse in the Black community! DA*N! I
    will NEVER Beat my daughters it’s a PUNCH B**CH that hits little girls! I
    encourage my wife to talk to them and my daughters are both in high school
    straight A’s and B’s and respectful per their teachers. No violence necessary;
    because that’s what it is. I hope that Punk goes to jail and has someone twice
    his size do to him, what he thought was ok to do to his own flesh and blood! I
    can’t believe all the woman on here that think this is Ok. Sad! Reminds me of a
    room of black people sitting up in the stands cheering while our little ones
    are attached by their own people. So DA*N SAD! Please break the cycle that we
    are animals and need to be hit. I’m sure everyone that comments, would tell you
    they’re intelligent, yet you don’t know how to discuss with a child about the
    error of their ways? You have to hit them? Sounds mentally unstable to me and
    then if the daughters get with men that beat them, you want to get upset, when
    that’s all you’ve shown them that they’re worth a BEATING! There are so many
    areas in Africa where the children are disciplined with words and not beatings,
    this is passed down from white people who were so evil they wanted you to feel
    less than nothing! And we wonder why so many of our children have self-esteem
    problems when we tell them they are WORTH a BEATING! Remember when you were
    young, all young people do things that are wrong. Talk to your children, it
    shows your own ignorance when you know NOTHING BUT VIOLENCE to solve a
    situation. Anything you do to your own children that you claim to love that you
    would be put in jail for if you did it to a stranger is ABUSE. PLEASE RISE UP,
    stop being stupid and saying “I turned out ok” Let’s rise as a people and implement
    the term “You Learn Better, You Do Better” Please break this disgusting cycle
    of slave masters!

    Whoever thinks that whipping a child with a cord is okay should read this:

    I came from an era you got whip with a switch as soon as you got out the tub “WET!!” My sister and cousins got whip with just about anything.We all turn out fine. We thought twice before doing it again.

  • nurs-ing1on1

    If you never have been beated by a parent, boy our one lucky sob. if you haven’t been there you don’t have a clue. I was the victim for 10 yrs.

    ARRESTING A FATHER FOR CORRECTING HIS KIDS, THAT IS A SHAME. I PRAISE THOSE BELT, WIRES, KNOCKS ON MY HEAD, DIRTY SLAPS, AND EVEN PUNISHMENT IN FORM OF EXCISES. I AM 29 AND I LIVE A GOOD LIFE.

  • Ray C

    I do think parents bare some blame on things like this. They’re not
    turning off the radio, tv, and youtube. They don’t start at any early
    age changing the radio off certain types of rap, r&b, pop, and rock
    music when kids get in the car. They’re allowing their kicks to believe
    too much in the “thug life” or “wild girl” lifestyle.

    I also agree some with Tommy Sotomayor. As a kid, I always wish my dad would only beat azz on da second offense.
    I do agree that you have to get down to the root cause. I agree with
    Tommy that we overbeat our kids in the black community because I think
    you need to have balance. Pick your battles. Sometimes when they think
    they’re in trouble, don’t come down too hard on em. Mix it up with
    different forms of punishment. If you always go to one thing they get
    over it or used to it like medicine.

    But these kids are getting too out of hand thinking they’re some kind of thug or thinking they’re some kind of twerk junt. Most of them are faking a life they know nothing about, and too often we think it’s cute when we see lil 7 year olds trying to twerk. We think it’s cute to tell lil kids to cuss and act like gangstas. IT’s not.

  • http://www.facebook.com/michelle.mcdowell.1232 Michelle McDowell

    This man took it way overboard. This video disgust me and most of the comments on her make me sick. Please don’t twist the word of God saying how it’s ok to abuse children like this because it is not!!!! Do you not know that anger is just like murder? What does that tell you? Why not learn how to discipline your child in the correct manner chill first do not be filled with anger and then try and discipline your child that is when you can take it overboard. How is abuse Love?? There is nothing wrong with spanking your child but abusing your child is wrong!!!

  • Anabelle Whitepaws

    Unbelievable!

  • devin dodson

    Just sad and these are the young ladies we have to look forward to be our wives twerking showing everything GOD gave them instead of saving it for their husband doing it the right way. I’m 17 and yes I look and laugh and more than likely give some dab but you would never meet my mom she’s not having that brain over beauty, beauty is a bonus lol don’t get me wrong there’s a WHOLE LOT OF SMART BEAUTIFUL WOMEN not twerking and she has may attention long term js. Yeah he went to the extreme if he wasn’t in their life they would blame the twerking on one house families we see he’s there maybe not in the correct way of handling HOT & READY TEENAGE GIRLS THAT’S ABOUT THAT LIFE SAD ALL THE WAY AROUND

    • devin dodson

      I bet their working on their routine smh

    • DIVADCR

      The way you phrased this incident and your thoughts on it are commendable, in this day and age of electronics people need to understand there are also risks with placing one’s self in this type of situation, those girls knew better otherwise they would not have been sneaky in attempting to make the video in the first place, yes maybe the father handled it too strongly but if these two were doing this, lied about the reason, then one must wonder what else they had been up to prior to this to set him off in such a way if indeed the other charge were in referance to these two, with all of the information required to go on these websites, they could have easily been snatched up by a child preditor, or worse things happening to them., its scary to think about. and i agree whether they’re together or not parents need to discuss the raising efforts of their children, what is allowable and not, and respect each others feelings and thoughts as long as they are reasonable., because possibility exist that the twerking video may have been fine in moms eyes, so an agreement needed to be reached on those open subjects, and parents stop using the world to raise your kids. And for those who don’t know what twerking is, its a grinding suggestive dance!

    Did you people that support him not see how this man beat his children?
    A slavemaster would have been proud. That’s a lot of anger and hate to
    take out on children. I wonder if it was those kids that he endangered
    back in October? Bet he was violent to the mother, too. Either way,
    he should never be around children again. For those of you who were
    beaten, or beat your kids like that, nothing I say will change your
    situation, or your views. Maybe this is why there is so much aggression
    and violence amongst people in general. Brutality in the home is not
    good. I feel so sorry for these little girls and very, very lucky not to
    have a father like this.

  • ChooseyNKC

    Mom and dad don’t get along. Dad laid down the law, mom didn’t like it and called the cops. Parents need to work together. I can bet you this much, mom is going to wish she had discipline in her home soon enough.
