Father shoots daughter
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A North Carolina father taught his teen a lesson in tough love when he unloaded his pistol into the girl's laptop after she posted a lengthy critique of her parents on Facebook.
To top it off, he videotaped the shooting and put the video on her Facebook page.
Tommy Jordan's post had already been shared hundreds of times by Thursday afternoon. The video shows Jordan sitting in a lawn chair with a cigarette, reading a copy of his 15-year-old daughter's post.
"This is for my daughter Hannah, and more importantly for all her friends on Facebook who thought her little rebellious post was cute," he said.
Jordan explains that his daughter had previously been grounded for writing a similar post on Facebook, and said he found the most recent post while repairing her laptop.
"I would have thought with a father that worked in IT for a living, you'd have better sense than to do it again," he said. "Since you want to hide it from everyone, I'm gonna share it with everybody."
In the expletive-filled post, the daughter rails against her parents for making her do chores, accusing them of treating her like a "slave" and demanding she be paid for all the work she does around the house.
"Pay you, seriously? Pay you for chores that you're supposed to do around the house?" Jordan responded.
The frustrated father goes on to explain that his daughter's chores are nothing compared to the work he did at her age to put himself through college while working.
"Your responsibilities include waking up on time and getting on the bus," he said.
"I don't know how to say how disappointed I am in you, and how disrespectful you were to every single adult in your life," Jordan said. "I'm gonna put a stop to it, I'm gonna put a stop to it right now."
That's when the video gets really interesting.
Just after the 7-minute mark the camera shifts to show the girl's laptop on the ground, and the father fires nine shots into the computer with his pistol.
"Just for the record, whenever you're not grounded, whatever year that happens to be, you can have a new laptop when you buy a new laptop," he said. "Hope you've enjoyed your little fiasco on Facebook, hope it was worth all this."
