A Facebook post went viral Wednesday after the father of a 15-year-old girl decided her online activity was disrespectful, but itís bringing her a kind of fame she probably never imagined. Her punishment? Eight exploding, hollow-point rounds from a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol, straight into her laptop.

If Facebook disappered, the world would be a better place. That site is a sickness and turns men into teenage girls.

I saw this video earlier today.
It is well worth watching the entire 8 minutes.

I was with him up until he said she owes him for the laptop. I think he needs to back down from that part. He shot it, not her.

I guess my preference for 12 ga. slugs alternating with 00 buckshot would be overkill?

I mean, the laptop was still -- more or less -- in one piece!

I really like the video though. :)

2+ million hits — it has gone viral.

Note the comments. The emotional 15-YOs are attacking dad — the adults are applauding him.

That’s fantastic! I only wish he would have shown the exit wounds ;-)

While I was watching over 700 new comments were posted..I guess that’s what “going viral” is about.

AMEN to that! Not to mention the guy that started it, what's his name, is a big Obamabot.

He said she owes him the $130 for software.
And she can buy her own laptop.

In hindsight, I don’t agree with this father’s actions. He basically had a youtube outburst instead of a facebook one. Discipline should be kept in house. I don’t think public humiliation works. It’s sad how people do things on facebook, and now youtube, they probably disagree with after the fact.

Shooting the laptop is fine, but I don’t think going on youtube is the right thing to do, particularly after being furious over your daughter’s idiotic facebook outburst.

This could come back to haunt him. The girl may go to the police and say her dad is acting violently and shooting a gun and feeling threatened and unsafe.

He bought it and upgraded it, not her..........

Hey, it's his daughter so he can punish her for her stupidity in the way he sees fit.

Her remark about wiping her dads butt was done strictly to embarrass him and the whole family in a public forum.

Sounds like a spoiled brat, snotty and thinking she is so bad.

I raised 5 and none would have dared to do anything like that. They got jobs bought their own cars and after our insurance got dropped due to 2 fender benders, by the time the 3rd was ready for a car, he also had to have his own insurance....they worked their butts off to get what they wanted and at one time my daughter at the age of 16 had 2 jobs.

this guys daughter sounds like a spoiled brat. Let her be embarrassed in public....dad said he was going to post in on her facebook account, just as she posted her little rant on facebook...

I wouldn't have used a gun is the only difference with me...I didn't have a gun, but a sledge hammer would have worked well for me.....

All my son's know how to cook, cause I didn't want them to have to get married or starve to death....by 16-17 they all knew how to use the washing machine and dryer...

As adults they say they learned how to cook cause I wasn't too good at it....as little kids I didn't kick them out of the kitchen when I was cooking or baking, they got to help if they wanted. Too many mom's don't have the patience with little ones to show them how to fix things....I once got breakfast in bed, a piece of buttered toast and a pepsi. The oldest was probably about 8, then there was the 7 year old, 5 year old 2year old and a baby....

One of them is a freeper also... GG

You seem to have the same logic impairment he does. She doesn’t owe him for a laptop HE destroyed. Nor does she owe him for the software on it...or the bullets for that matter. He basically did EXACTLY the same thing she did. He had a temper tantrum on the internet.

Not going to happen. The police department applauds him.

And he’s all for her to have her little interview with social services, to show he’s taking care of her the way he should.

Wow!

Just Wow.

This father does not deserve the daughter he got. Makes one wonder how she failed to get the message. I hope it's not too late.

Perhaps the lesson might have been truly useful 8 or 9 years earlier. Yes, the "entitlement" mentality can bloom in families, too.

Regardless, I admire this Dad, and if the ACLU or other dysfunctional group gives him a hassle, I will kick in for his legal defence.

LOL! Oh really??? You tell that to the father! So what is she going to do, quit her job? Oh wait, the twit lives at home.......How many chores do you think she's going to have to perform before the repayment is fulfilled?

>I was with him up until he said she owes him for the laptop. I think he needs to back down from that part. He shot it, not her.

Well, to be fair the $130 he cited was for the software that he installed for her, and it would not be unreasonable to add in the labor, too.
(Also, from the tone of the video the laptop was not hers in the sense that she bought it; though it could have been hers in the sense someone gave it to her, it seems to me far more likely that it was “something dad provided for school and such.”)
