Child Abuse? I don’t think so

The other day I posted a video of a father shooting up his daughters laptop. Now the wowsers are all up in arms accusing the father of child abuse:

The above video of Tommy Jordan shooting his daughter’s laptop in retaliation for a nasty Facebook post about her parents has gone viral, with over 22 million views in five days. Mary Champagne excoriates the dad:

One does not have to demand respect through fear, maintain leadership by crushing opposition, or convince oneself that iron fisted authority is an expression of love. There are many examples of fathers who garner respect and obedience from their children through authoritative rather than coercive parenting. These are not laissez faire, “hippy”, disengaged parents who abdicate responsibility for limit setting and leadership. But they achieve the balance of raising healthy and capable children while still having their love and respect as they reach adulthood.

Elizabeth Wilson goes further:

If a husband shot a .45 into a wife’s computer, I have no doubt it would be considered an act of domestic violence.  But there seems to be a lot of support for the father out there.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
