    Never charge a cell phone in a closet

    Man pulls gun on teen he found in stepdaughter's closet, makes her do squats as punishment

    The kid says he was just in the closet charging his cell phone. The father escorted him out of the house with a gun at his head. I can certainly see this happening.

    A man comes home from work early and opens his closet to find a naked man in there. He says, "Who in the heck are you and what are you doing in my closet?" the guy replies, "Pest control, doing a moth inspection." Husband replies, "Where are your clothes?" and the guy replies, "Dang, those jokers are fast!!! Your infestation is much worse than I thought!!!"

    These dummies finding boys in daughters rooms are NOT doing us any favors.

    Note to all potential dummy's with teen age daughters:


    Once its discovered that you have a young boy posing no immediate threat to safety, simply tell them to git.

    They don't need to be shot, escorted out at gunpoint, etc etc.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    That's real good punishment, doing squats will get her in better shape for "phone charging."

    I may have drug him through the house by one foot and assisted him out the door and down the steps, but certainly no need for a firearm in this case. Although there's another case in Georgia where a man came home and found a boy in the shower with his stepdaughter and he roughed him up a bit and got arrested for battery. Even the teenage boy and his parents said they didn't think the man should have been arrested.

    The bottom line is it seems in America today if you find a teenage boy doing inappropriate things with your teenage daughter in your home, you are supposed to say "Oh, excuse me, please let me know when you are through and I will give you a ride home."

    I'm slightly concerned about the line "there has been a string [of] similar incidents around the country." Kind of sounds like an anti angle of attack.

    In MSM reporting, they are all anti angles of attack.

    I'd have never placed a gun to the kid's head, BUT, I'd mention to him that I wanted him to meet "Stanley, the 28 Oz Framing hammer, or "Louie" the baseball bat. ..........I'm also beginning to think there's a HUGE market for return of the Chastity belt. I'm on a roll here, and thinking, "MAYBE I should lock the closet door, and leave the kid in there until he pees and poops his nikkers, then use his cell phone to call his mommy and daddy so they can come pick him up, and let HIM do the 'splainin.

    Is it any wonder why this country is in the downhill spiral it's in?

    When I was a teenager if I had been caught in the shower by a girls dad, I would have gotten a beat down by him and an even worse one from my dad!

    Unless the intruder was posing some sort of threat, was indicating he was blowing sideways with aggression, etc. Otherwise, you're absolutely correct. Bringing deadly force to bear in a non-deadly-force situation? Bad juju, and the GJ should see it that way if things go ugly.

    Gun to head think not. Is kid going to meet his maker? No, but I will not dispel that illusion.

    When I was growing up... If you were dumb enough to be in a similar situation and dumb enough to get caught by her dad you'd get 2 whoopins. One from him and one from your own for not being a gentleman to begin with. But a gun to the head? I think not!

    When I was a kid, that situation required a double-barrel shotgun and a trip to the magistrate for a wedding license and quick marriage.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.
