Dad accused of using dog shock collar on his kids

Dad accused of using dog shock collar on his kids: "SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A father was accused of using a dog shock collar on his four children. Salem Police Lt. Dave Okada said the 41-year-old man was jailed Tuesday on charges of criminal mistreatment. He said the father acknowledged putting the electronic dog collar on his four children and shocking all of them at least once.

According to Okada, the father didn't do it as a punishment. Rather, he thought it was funny."


Admit it, we have all thought it may be a good idea. Yes, I'm kidding but can anyone else read between the lines in this story? The kids want to try it. One gets shocked and jumps around yelling. The next one begs, "I want to try it, I want to try it." They are having a great time. So the kids return to Mom's and excitedly relate the hilarity. Mom is horrified and calls the police in effort to "protect" the children. Getting even with her despicable, miserable X is completely secondary to the safety of the children. But how sweetly secondary it is!
