And, don't be so sure you can freely spank in FL. This father wasn't taking any chances:
Florida father asks police to supervise daughter's spanking - Parents - TODAY.com
One of the articles I read said that he was, in fact , detained until police arrived.

That's strange, a paddle is fine but the switch that football player used isn't? Who determines this? Do they have a "what can I hit my kids with" committee? Confusing to have a violent act supervised by a police officer isn't it?

"I'm about to hit my kid officer, and I need you to come over and watch me so I stay within the beating law"

It reminds me of the old law that you can beat your wife as long as the object you beat her with was shorter than a ruler. We are weirdos.

On the kid who trashed everything: Early detection of mental illness will prevent more mass shootings in the future. I say we start pouring more money into mental health.
I'd like to know the ending to the story though, maybe his friends dared him to do it and now he's in the special club! High five!

This was absolutely unacceptable behavior. The very sad thing is that more than likely, if this child continues down this road in life, he could take it to a very different level, and become dangerous to others. He apparently has no sense of right or wrong, and is just indiscriminately wreaking havoc. With that mind-set that anger could possibly be carried over into him inflicting physical harm to someone. In the video he assumes a defensive stance to one of the people trying to stop him.

I'm curious of the back story to this little delinquent.

It didn't look like that kid had development issues he was just being a BRAT. He knew what he was doing. I'm glad that guy grabbed him and walked him out of the store but how many of us would do that. If I saw a kid doing that I wouldn't touch him out of fear of being sued for everything I own.

If that BRAT doesn't straighten up we will probably see him on the news in a few years or on that TV where the troubled kids go to jail for the day.. scared straight..

I'm glad to know the store clerk physically removed him from the store. How much do you want to bet that, when they did so, the parent, probably some welfare recipient (of any potential race, understand you), screamed "don't you touch my kid?"

True that. Heck, as a cashier at a discount store, I'd done it myself. They can threaten to sue or whatever all they want, but I'm doing it. Someone has to be willing to take a stand against this--if the parents would stop screaming "don't touch my kid" and handle the problem themselves, others wouldn't have to.

Kid should be institutionalized and given shock treatment.

I watched the video. What a tragedy of failed contraception.

my mother would have water boarded me if I did something like this. I hope the cashier doesn't get sued. You can't touch people.
