“I’m Gonna Make it Hurt!” Cop Suspended After His Own Son Filmed Him Brutally Beating His Sister

Nassau County, FL — After having enough abuse doled out by his parents, both of whom are law enforcement officers, a brave little boy decided to take matters into his own hands and expose the beatings. The father, a Nassau County Sheriff’s deputy, has now been taken off patrol, and the mother, a corrections officer for Baker County, has been suspended after the boy posted a video to YouTube of the alleged abuse suffered by him and his sister.

The video was posted to YouTube in July. However, it was only recently noticed by the Nassau County Sheriff’s department. The video, titled “How no (sic) to discipline a child,” has since been removed from YouTube “for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”

However, parts of it were aired on several local news stations. It is hard to watch and shows a depressing scene as Deputy Troy Gill chases his children through a dilapidated home threatening to inflict serious bodily harm.

The video begins with the little boy narrating, saying, “this is what I have to deal with every day, guys.” The tirade apparently began after a demand for the boy’s sister to change her shirt.

The argument escalates to the point of Gill picking the toddler up off the ground by her arm and repeatedly beating her with a belt as she screams in agony.

The boy then tells the camera, “I haven’t gotten a spanking in a couple of years, guys. Because I listen.”

Although this author personally believes that the act of spanking teaches children that violence is okay in a loving relationship and is a causal factor in making children more aggressive later in life, the manner in which parents interact with their children is personal and private, and most assuredly no matter of the state.

That being said, however, causing grave physical harm to a child is child abuse, which appears to be the case in this video as Gill is clearly raging and acting out of anger — not discipline.

The video then records more screams and smacking sounds in another room. “Finally, she’s getting her butt beat,” the boy says, who apparently endured a similar fate at the girl’s age. “I was getting whoopings like that at the age of 2.”

“Go get your motherf**king shirt now,” Gill said in the video. “Imma whoop that motherf**king ass some more.” Smack, smack, smack, the deputy is heard brutally laying in to the small girl.

Gill can then be heard screaming as he threatens more painful violence against the small girl, “If I get to f**king two and you don’t have a shirt on, I’m beating your f**king ass some more — and I promise you, I’m going to make it hurt.”

According to the Florida Times-Union, Department of Children and Families spokesman John Harrell confirmed the agency is investigating the case. He declined to release additional details, citing state confidentiality laws.

Deputy Gill has been reassigned from patrol to jail duties while the Florida Department of Children and Families investigates whether he broke any laws, according to Sheriff Bill Leeper.

“We have removed the deputy from his patrol responsibilities and referred it to DCF to investigate and determine if any laws have been violated. Once their investigation is complete we will refer it our internal affairs for review.”

  • Find a loving married couple to become adoptive parents for both children right now. I grew up in a similar environment. Get these kids away from this punk forever.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      A loving, married couple, huh? No creepy subtext there!

      • You are one screwed up chick, Jenna. Yes, a heterosexual married couple who read their Bible, pray, raise their children in faith and obey the Lord God. Yes, that exactly.

        • Leave the bible and lord god stuff outta that. Those kids don’t need any of that.

          • The Word of God is precisely what those kids need. We all need it. Its the truth, and Jesus tells us that “the truth will set you free.” It does. It expands the mind and fosters understanding of what is good and what is evil. He is real. All of it is real.

          • https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6c61a31fa9f56dd5d1cc1e1a6bc52bf7e58050e2dc5408fde0d070560ff79a85.jpg
            I had religion force-fed to me as a child. It’s nothing but control by fear. My understanding today of what is good and what is evil did not come from your bible.

          • Brett Rapley

            Hey dispshit. do one you stupid twat. God has fuck all to do with this. He’s abusing a child or are you just fucking blind. If your so called god is all sweetness and light, then why the fuck does this sort of thing happen, and do not tell me that it’s to teach ANYONE a lesson in life. Stop reading from a 2000 year old stupid piece of shit book and get a life.

          • Kippereaca

            The make believe God stands by all the time as children are abused and killed, and people say he is mercyfull and loving. I don’t believe whenever I read of another child killed or abused. Sorry just my beliefs. I was brought up in a large religious home, where spanking was the norm. I also raised two children as a single father without beating them, the youngest with ADHD, and they both grew up without contact with the police and became loving, respectful and honourable adults. It can be done, it just takes parental involvement, and not relying on others to raise your children, such as teachers.

          • Kippereaca, it is good to hear of your children and their success as adults. I can tell you love them. Like you, I hate that there is harm to children in this world, and used to wonder how a so-called loving God would allow such a thing. I understand now that it is His desire for us that we live in peace, and that we have a living relationship with Him in every aspect of our lives. Regrettably, mankind chooses to follow its own desires. We choose to disregard the Lord God. We reject His ways, His Truth. We reject Jesus and His sacrifice for our salvation. So we create sin. We create war, we create hate, lies and death, even to children.

            I am sorry that you rejected Him. How lonely that must be in this physical life, and what a consequence in the next. Again, it is choices we make that creates our sorrows and regrets.

          • JohnZ

            You can shove your word of god where the sun doesn’t shine.

          • My goodness, JohnZ. That was downright unfriendly. Not that one soul on earth cares. Try again. Do better this time. Seriously dude, do you think that was original? I had one leftist chick on this very page tell me that I was 10 pounds of shit in a five pound sack. Its not original, but its better than your “sun don’t shine” comment. Try again. Put more hate into it. If you are going to burn in hell, you might as well hate God with gusto, with real burning hatred. So stand up, be a man, and fight with all you have to give. Rip into me. Let’s see your absolute very worst attack.

        • sunnync

          The bible does not say anything about its OK to beat your kids like this. You can teach your child right from wrong and give discipline without abusing them. This is a small toddler being beaten for not putting a shirt on. We must not be reading the same Bible because my God is loving, compassionate and merciful. He would never condone hurting your children in his name!

          • sunshine_bear

            #truthtoman didn’t say it was ok to beat those kids either,where did you read that?

          • Some people can’t read, Sunshine. But thanks for tightening him/her/it up. The sad thing is that there are so many people like that.

          • Gary Fleshman

            Yep, the bible sanctions child abuse…

            Proverbs 23:13-14 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
            Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
            Exodus 21:15 Whoever strikes his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death.
            Exodus 21:17 Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.
            Leviticus 20:9 Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death. Because they have cursed their father or mother, their blood will be on their own head.
            Matthew 15:4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’

            And that is all Old Testament, translated through so many different hands that it truthfully cannot be verified as what was intended to be said. Here’s a link ( one of many, btw) that spells out the issue at hand. .:https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/reasons-humanists-reject-bible/

            What the fuck are you twats going on about ? It has fuck all to do with god you bunch of idiots. It’s pure and simple child abuse, he should be jailed or have someone beat his fucking arse the same way, am sure he won’t like having his ass beaten like that.

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          Keep talking, kook. You’re certainly not making me look like the screwed-up one!

          • You are correct, Kitty. You make yourself look screwed up just fine. “Kook” 🙂 But regardless of what I say or do not say, the Truth is still the Truth. It is fundamental, and it originates from the Creator of all things. He does love, and He wants His children to be with Him. There is a war between the Lord God and Lucifer, who seeks to blind mankind to the truth. He hates us because the Lord God calls us His “masterpiece.” Lucifer was cast out for his pride and his contempt to the Lord God. I believe you do want the truth. I have reviewed your Discus comments. You are smart. But smart can be deceived as easily as any other. If you want the Truth, just ask Him. He will give you an opportunity to decide. I promise. He is faithful.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Even the Devil does God’s will, dear… unless you care to argue against God’s omnipotence. Who are we to dip our beaks in the business of God and the Devil? You can’t turn your life and your heart from Lucifer and continue to look for him around every corner. It doesn’t work that way. Also, I’m right with the God of My Heart and am in no way shopping for what you’re selling. I love God and God loves me, but neither of us really like it when people watch… ya dig?

          • Satan does not execute the Will of God. Lucifer has free will, just as we do. Lucifer can only execute within the limits allowed by God, just as we do. I did not turn “from” evil as much as I turned “to” whoever this God was. He taught me, raised me up, did many wonders in my life as beacons that remind me of His presence and authority. He saved me, I did not desire it. A great evil manifested itself before me, and I knew that it was decision time. So I turned to Him, and said “If you are real, I will follow you because it will be insane to do otherwise”. Not poetic, but base-metal sincere. And I pursued Him. I had to know. And He poured wisdom in to me. Knowledge began to rise within me. Clarity. And when my wisdom was sufficient to bear fruit, the reality of the world snapped into perfect focus. I understand the battle, the lies, the tactics of the enemy and the methods of the Lord God. It is a trial, Miss Cat. It is indeed a great test with a greater reward. And I know that you are interested in these things. I sense that you desire that which is available, but there is only one path to that which you seek. Until you take that path, you will dwell within the tent of lies created by Lucifer. There is no middle way. Even that is deception.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            I think religion and genitals have a lot in common. It’s bad taste to show off either in public without having been specifically asked by anyone to see that.

          • Hugh Culliton

            LOL!!!

          • Who’s the evil one? In your bible, satan killed only 10 people. Your god killed over 2 million. That is, if you believe all that. Me, I think it’s just a book of fairy tales that humanity started taking way too seriously. It’s a tool used by the wealthy and powerful to keep control over the masses.

          • It is true that the Lord God sent the Hebrews against many nations of people in the Mid-East with specific instructions to exterminate those nations. Every man, woman, pregnant woman, child, dog, cat, horse, cow and pig. There is an extremely important reason for that, MUnit. In fact, knowledge of why opens the door to understanding exactly what is happening in the world today. I could tell you, but you will enjoy the discoveries much more if you seek the answers yourself. As for Satan killing 10 people, I do not know where you get that information, other than maybe from the Book of Job. But you can be certain that Lucifer seeks to destroy every living human being on earth. That is his plan, and it is coming to a head quite soon.

            Now, start looking for the answers as to why the Lord God commanded the extermination of the various tribes specified in the Holy Bible. Those reasons are extremely pertinent today, answer fundamental questions that are key to understanding the world today, and will leave you with “Wow! Unbelievable” on your lips. But its all true, and it is the absolute reality of today.

            Ask the Lord God to show you the truth. Just ask Him. I did. I was a god-hating anti-christian beast of a man until I stood face to face with evil. Then I knew that I was in over my head and immediately turned to Him and said “If you are real, I will follow You.” And He showed me. He’s real. You want completion in your soul? He is the Way.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Wow, man. Unbelievable! That is just ten pounds of crazy in a five pound bag. It must have taken some work to get it all in there – color me impressed.

            That is key word here is “fundamental”. The bible was never meant to be taken literally word for word. Jesus spoke in parables to help the uneducated people of his time better understand what he was teaching them. The Bible was written over 3000 years ago and people lived very different lives than we do. By now we should know beating a child is not right and that violence does not solve anything. Violence just spawns more violence. This world needs more empathy and compassion for others. Jesus was not a man of wrath, he was a man of love and faith. Yet such horrific acts have been done in the name of God because people felt entitled to do them after picking over certain verses in the Bible. That was never how it was intended to be used.

          • Sunny, why are you commenting to me? We do not have a discussion, and you drag in comments that pertain to nothing. You obviously want to rag on the Lord God and use any possible mention of Him to go on and on about Him in complete ignorance. You have no understanding of who He is or what He is about. You constantly repeat the same old, tired, empty anti-christ rubbish that I have heard from people just like you all my life. Beating a child is a crime, you idiot. Don’t tell me what Jesus did or did not do. They lived different lives 3000 years ago? Hardly. They still lied, cheated, stole, killed babies, were adulterers, homosexuals and hated God. No difference AT ALL. Jesus spoke in parables because parables apply across a broad spectrum of human circumstances, not because some people, such as you, are ignorant. Human beings have not changed since time began. No one advocates beating a child. Where are you getting these ideas?

            Yes, the Bible is meant to be taken literally. Who do you think you are to denigrate the Word of God? Clearly you do not read it, and you spout off ignorant comments continuously.

      If that’s the case, then we’d love to see the video of you shrieking like a six year old girl for 10 minutes while someone 6-7 times your size suspends you by your arm and wails on you with a strap of leather…for making a mess.

      • billdeserthills

        The video is only a minute+ long
        My parents used to beat me & my brother with a strap and it was a good thing they did too
        they probably woulda got callouses if they hadn’t been using that belt

        • REALConservative

          The ORIGINAL video is 10 minutes long.

          Tell me about your parents beating you with a “strap” for being messy.

          • billdeserthills

            We got beat because when I got bored I would annoy my brother, he would annoy Mom/Dad and after
            it went on long enough (for them) then the strap would make an appearance. The beating never lasted 10 minutes though, but my Mom once had to break down my bedroom door and that one was an epic beating

      • Alex Feinman

        This was a spanking – The fact that we can’t do it anymore is why our kids are entitled, spoiled argumentative goofballs. There will be no injuries and the kid will get over it in 10 minutes. . . . “If that’s the case, then unga bunga love to bork duhh ooven you shrieking like a boo hoo girl for fruh fruhs while someone 6-7 bla bla dud suspends you by your arm . . . “

        • No, she won’t. She is in her early formative years and she will grow up beaten down and afraid. She will be filled with internalized hostility toward men, and she will marry one. Then the sh|t storm begins all over again. If I saw anyone doing that to a small child (she is 2, right?), I would stop them cold. And then I would summon the police. It is violent, cruel and extreme. Corporal punishment is acceptable, but cruelty is not.

        • REALConservative

          I’m so sorry I responded to your other post before I saw this bit of idiocy that you posted.

        • Hugh Culliton

          If corporal punishment is the extent of your repertoire for raising your children, I recommend you take some parenting classes. Of course, the cynically callous tone of your comment indicates that you’re not the kind of person who likes to challenge their preconceptions.

          • Alex Feinman

            Corporal punishment – Give ma break, The nuns in catholic school were worse then this. Gym teachers were far worse then this. You might have an argument if there were any bruises or injuries – No mention of that – probably because there were none and if they mentioned that, then liberals couldn’t get as upset and this wouldn’t be news.

      • Alex Feinman

        This is not abuse – Take it from someone who has known abuse first hand . . .

        • REALConservative

          It is abuse; take it from someone who was beat with anything their step-mother could get their hands on.

          Children should be spanked when needed, but NO child should ever be handled that way by a parent who is clearly out of control and whipping a child for 10 minutes over making a MESS.

          A child who posted the things that boy posted is a child who does not believe there is love in that house, and I know that environment with stark recollection.

        • Perhaps your abuse was worse – or different. What is happening in that house is abuse. Those kids are being terrorized. Abuse comes in many forms. Physical, verbal, emotional… Looks like that kid is enduring all three.

          • Alex Feinman

            Dear god . . . so much to endure. Give me a break.

        • Hugh Culliton

          According to Canadian law, “Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation and emotional abuse.”

          Take it from someone who’s spent almost 20 years teaching at-risk teens: this might not be the same as the abuse you suffered, but it’s still very, very much child abuse.

        “Hitting is not okay in the military.”
        While true for the F-35, everywhere else as long as it’s a target authorized by command and in accordance with international law and one’s ROE. Then it’s OK to hit! 😉 LOL /s I’m being flippant – I completely agree with you.

        • Hugh Culliton

          Please see my comment above to STFU. You mention very serious incidents, though I don’t agree that military service necessarily conditions personnel to domestic abuse. Wounded Knee was genocide. Iraq was an illegal war of aggression launched for shockingly mendacious and fraudulent reasons. Sadly, your list is far longer than these incidents.

          WRT My Lai, remember that the CO, Lt. Cally was court marshaled, convicted, and served a prison sentence for his men’s actions that day. As well, remember that it was other military personnel – WO1 Thompson’s helicopter crew who stopped the murder by threatening to machine-gun Cally’s platoon.

          • quadeddie

            And I’m just restricting those examples to the US military. If we use world-wide militaries, the bodies stack from here to the moon.

    • Rogue cops cost us money

      It is power hungry brutality.

    • Hugh Culliton

      Obviously you know utterly nothing about military service. The structure of your argument is founded on baseless clichés.

  • Kountry Bumpkin

    According to the information I found in 2010 FL Sheriff’s Patrol Officers made $54,050.00 annually, you can assume it’s even more today. FL Correctional Officers make $28,007.20 as a trainee officer and $30,807.92 to $45,033.83 as a certified officer yet these SS members live in a trailer park ghetto apparently.

  • I feel sorry for the boy who made the video. He got his daddy suspended and shown for the monster he is. All over TV and the internet. Daddy Dearest will no doubt blame it all on the little boy. That poor kid is toast.

    • sunnync

      Yes he exposed his abusive father but he may have saved his little Sister’s life. If he went to such a desperate measure to expose his Father, you know he felt they were in danger. He probably knew that his father was respected in the community as a cop and that one would take his abuse claims seriously. So he got video proof. If the Father got fired, then you know there was criminal abuse going on! Hopefully Child Protective Services will not allow unsupervised visits with the kids and the father or he will lose complete custody of them. He has no business being around kids.

      • Connie997

        I am worried for the kid as I didn’t see anywhere where the children were removed pending an investigation. Thst kid is in serious danger!!

        • Gordon Klock

          I concurr, that poor kid is in serious danger, & social services is more likely to ignore all this, or ‘conveniently’ ‘drop the ball’ at some point, when supposedly protecting the kid from his own parents..(usually, they only seem to go after decent parents, & leave the abusive ones alone to continue their abuses, & as paranoid as all this may well sound, it seems to happen way too often)…

      • Carmel Jones

        Neither does the mom but she will take parenting classes and get them.

  • sunnync

    Understand he is doing this to a Toddler for not putting a shirt on. I know parents can get frustrated and angry with their little ones but that is no excuse for beating a toddler this way. I am proud of the son for protecting and standing up for himself and his sister. Without much proof Child Protective services will not seriously investigate a family. Especially if the abuser is in law enforcement. This poor kid risked his own safety to protect his little sister from the abuse he had to live with. I hope they never have to see their abuser again!

        That could very well be an older two or three year old! Are you excusing this man for beating a young girl like that even if she is seven or eight??? Disgusting!!

        • Drake

          When both videos are referenced and there is no toddler in these videos where is that info being pulled from? Eye witness? full report? I’m seeing reacting to written words of site. IF it’s the case it was seen then of course it’s bad but I haven’t seen it with my own eyes. The kid in both videos easily chest height I have never seen a 2 or 3 y/o in videos looking more like an 8 y/o. Don’t mistake what I say as to excuse this guy but when I watch the same video as everyone else I don’t see a 2 or 3 y/o out of any of the local stories just in words and the kid saying he started getting beat at 2. I’m just tired of BS stories and massive lack of journalistic integrity with so many saying w/e as truth MSM being the worst of them all. But if a story matches what you want to see and hear you just stop thinking and believe it all? I don’t like alot of LE but it doesn’t mean I’m going to stop doing my due diligence on every story. Can you say the same?

        • Lisa Spears

          BEATING? that’s a spanking, not a beating. Parents have the right to discipline their children. Or do you want to raise them? WHo will teach the children consequences? The government? Oh they will, it’s called prison.

          • Hugh Culliton

            So according to you, beating a little kid with a weapon because they won’t put on a shirt is a perfectly normal. “That’ll learn ’em up good!” right?

            Your logic’s is as fucked-up as your parenting skills are absent.

          • BC1755

            Go drink some sour milk. Maybe get yourself some permanent birth control. The world has enough violent assholes.

          • vanni9283

            Do they have the right to injure or harm their children in the name of “discipline”???

          • Connie997

            You are a sick woman if you think that is a spanking. Disgusted.

          • shimbaru

            Spanking is with a naked hand, striking a child with a closed fist or a weapon of any type is assault, also child abuse. In my state this man would be in a jail cell, not guarding one.

          • thebluecrab

            Hitting a child teaches nothing; it is addressing the wrong end–parenting is a privilege and teaching begins at the other end of the anatomy.,

          • Hugh Culliton

            I’m putting that up in my classroom!

        • shimbaru

      • Jan Camden

        It’s a 3-year-old. Did you even read?

        • Drake

          I watched the videos AND read it. Where did it say 3y/o because again only thing I see is. “I was getting whoopings like that at the age of 2.” the boy said on camera. Is this what your using? See what I’m saying your not even actually thinking just letting the words of the story be 100% truth in how you see it. It’s disturbing considering after reading then watching then reading again I didn’t see a toddler in the videos.

        • Kippereaca

          I have a problem with any discussion of age in this video, as the girl’s does not appear to be mentioned anywhere although at one point a news report calls her a toddler. The only age mentioned was the boy’s comment about being spanked like that at the age of two. My big problem with calling the girl a toddler, is when you see her getting hit in the 2nd video her height makes her appear to be tall enough to be between a 6 year old and a 9 year old. You is far too tall to be only a toddler.
          As far as the mother is concerned it appears as if she is standing in the background as the girl is beaten. If it is not the mother then it is another adult, and in that case the police should be investigating to find out who it was, as that person did not stop the apparent abuse. If it is another person besides either of the parents, then that person should be charged in some way for not stepping in and stopping the abuse. Whoever it is in the background whether the mother or somebody else, when the charges eventually get laid as they should hopefully, that person should be charged as an accessory to the assault.

      • sunnync

        It really does not matter what age the girl is. You do not beat children like that. His police department had enough evidence of child abuse to fire him. They would not do that over a simple butt spanking. Stop making excuses for the abuser.

        • Drake

          I have a problem with the author and how it was written. So stating one thing and it being another isn’t good especially since MSM and FB seem to want to crack down on any and all alternative news. This gives reason. Even when we keep proving and showing MSM is lying nonstop. You say the age doesn’t matter but making false statements in the piece is? If they do have evidence they better do way more than fire him. You said they had enough to fire him but it says he wasn’t fired that he was reassigned to the jail while the investigation is ongoing…… hmmm that’s pretty odd that we somehow are reading two different things in one piece.

      • Brett Rapley

        Dipshit, a 3 year old is a toddler you dick. THAT is abuse of a child, Fucking cop or not, and that bitch of a wife needs a good slapping for letting this happen in the first place. It’s about time you fucking idiots in America did something about this shit.

        • Hugh Culliton

          Perhaps the reason she’s “letting” it happen is because the child isn’t the only one being abused and the wife too is already getting “a good slapping” on a regular basis – probably to divert beatings from the children. I teach and work with a lot of kids from abusive homes – trust me: it can be very complicated and difficult to leave such abuse.

      • Hugh Culliton

        Your point?

      • Hugh Culliton

        Your point?

      • April Michelle Wilson

        yes im my day this was called discipline now its abuse if more kids were punished for wrong doing with a good old fashioned ass whoopin there wouldn’t be near as many snowflakes in the world.

        • angelwind

          Translated as: “If my parents could abuse me just fine, why can’t we violently beat our next generation of kids?”

          Did you miss the link where there’s studies that shows spankings lead to more violent adults later in life?

          Your post just proves the point.

          • meatwad_SSuppet

            What spanking means is this. The parent has no brains to find or use the correct words, so they resort to the show of force.

        • vanni9283

          Hi, Deputy Troy

        • Two Americas

          Apparently there is a link between being abused as a child and being a bully as an adult, as evidenced by your use of the term “snowflake.”

        • meatwad_SSuppet

          Says a chunk of cold coal.

    • Hugh Culliton

      Nothing, NOTHING a kids does can ever justify such abuse. This man is a violent and abusive control freak who, in addition to never being allowed near children unsupervised, should be banned from possessing a firearm or being a police officer.

  • David Hall

    The low life POS would have your kids taken away and you in jail if he saw you doing that to a kid. But, they will do nothing to him as he has a badge to get away with anything. After all it is Florida, land of psycho’s and a corrupt low life cop too. That is total abuse when you beat a kid with a belt with anger such as he displayed. For not changing a shirt, what the hell would he do for something really serious?. The kids need to be taken and lose his job and charged with child abuse. But, we all know that is not going to happen!.

  • Samantha Anderson

    Oh God he is spanking his little brat, yeah its a little too much but the lib media is taking too far.

    • Connie997

      He is not spanking anyone. He is BEATING a young child. There is a big difference and if you have children, maybe you will be the next Youtube star since you think that is it okay to beat a defenseless child. Sickening.

    • Damn, how do you know she is a brat? Just judge that little 2 yr old, Samantha. You tell her, girl. ALL 2 yr olds are brats. They have to be raised, not beaten. I am one hard core dude, but babies are awesome. They are beautiful and funny and smart. Its us adults that suck. We think we are Kings, or that we know everything, or that we are better than others. Kids learn most of their evil ways from us. And all of us need to treat each other with a lot more respect and courtesy. Look at the world— WE ARE IT. If we change, we change the world and to hell with government. But on these forums, we are awful to each other. So I want to apologize for insulting anyone, even Cats vag. I will continue to win every engagement, but I will be polite about it. If we do not make this change, then we are the pathetic ones.

  • Samantha Anderson

    I am more concerned about the messy house what a wreck I bet these people are slobs.

  • Dan Quixoté

    I hate that his badge granted him privilege to evade any meaningful consequences. If that were any of us outside their armed gang of state-sanctioned thugs, we would have been immediately caged and the children put in “protective custody”. But he gets the benefit of his unimpugned freedom and continued employment, plus the full protection of an entire police force. A badge continues to be a license to abuse those least able to defend themselves.

  • Alex Feinman

    The fact that they’re making a big deal out of this is the reason why our kids are such spoiled, entitled little confused goofballs.That was a spanking . . . There will be no injuries – It wasn’t over the top and the kid will get over it in 10 minutes.. Modern discipline f****ng is a joke . . . Give kids praise when in they once in a hundred, do the right thing.

    • Hugh Culliton

      ” The fact that they’re making a big deal out of this is the reason why our kids are such spoiled, entitled little confused goofballs…Give kids praise when in they once in a hundred, do the right thing.”

      As I unpack those comments, I can see that you seem to be working through a lot of anger and some serious childhood issues, as you speak of children in such hateful and negative ways. Make peace with your personal demons before you visit them on your own children.

      • Alex Feinman

        And you are probably of those liberal parents who’s children constantly talk back, argue endlessly and misbehave. You can have your “time outs” and “that’s 1, That’s 2, that’s 3 ” baloney. I speak of “some” children in negative ways because they are spoiled little brats – and it’s their media emasculated parent’s fault. There’s a difference between a spanking and abuse.

        • Hugh Culliton

          You are free to believe what you may about my boys, they’re both men of character and make me proud to be their father every day. We never had to spank either of them, though I have no problem with parents who do. As well, I agree that there’s a difference between spanking and abuse. However, what’s shown in the video meets the legal definition of abuse.

          If I understand your argument, you’re saying that the only way to effectively change a child’s behavior or ensure that they are respectful, is through corporal punishment. I completely disagree with this notion. I’ve taught high school for going on 20 years, specializing in students with severe behavior problems or other mental/emotional health/behavior issues. I have never experienced any situation with any student where hitting them would be useful. Never.

          Question: If there were a sure-fire discipline tool as effective as you think CP is, would you use it or stick to CP? What, ultimately is your objective?

  • Hill Billy

    He’s got deputy of the year written all over him.

  • Drake

    In all honesty the spanking showed in the clips he wasn’t winding up, throwing weight, twisting his waist into the swings, but as the stations said they withheld the worst parts. I’m one of those that likes seeing LE get what they deserve too when they’re pieces of garbage. WTF though FTP, she has to be in the Guinness book of world records for biggest toddler EVER. That isn’t a toddler by ANY means, the person writing this obviously has ZERO children.

    Telling your parents no after being told you would get whooped if you didn’t listen, you would get your a$$ whooped when I was a kid. As far as the screaming SERIOUSLY?!?! I have never seen a kid sit in silence getting spanked, have you? I also rarely see a kid not throw a tantrum or fit if they get stuff taken away as punishment. My oldest screamed that loud when she got grounded from her tablet, tv and phone because she was caught lying. Just like seeing a kid ~5-6 tell his mom “Fu*# u mom” right behind me at toys’r’us because she wouldn’t buy him a toy and she didn’t say a word or do anything and still bought the little brat something.

    There is a medium you have to reach and know not to punish/spank out of anger. Regardless if it’s an everyday thing then something needs to be done for sure. Just imagine what he does to anyone on the job. The sad part is alot of LE families are this way, stress of job, no proper coping mechanisms or something thought i read somewhere they’re 3 times more likely to commit domestic violence.

    • sunnync

      Drake stop trying to make excuses for this child’s abuser. The worse parts of the video were withheld and the abuse was bad enough for the police department to fire him. They would not fire him over just a typical spanking. Just because you got whooped as a kid does not make this OK. There are ways to punish kids without beating them.

      • Drake

        So stating my opinion of what I saw with my eyes and what I read is excuses? No, it’s a matter of opinion but since my opinion differs it’s excuses not a difference of opinion? Where did I say I got whooped?? I didn’t it, I think you need to really practice at increasing your reading comprehension. Yet here you are stating they fired him when they didn’t. Am I lambasting you for that lie? No, but you’re doing so because of my opinion? Just as you stated it doesn’t matter the age of the child in the other post, not understanding the ramifications of what gov’t, FB and MSM is trying to do to alternative sites. You’re obviously mistaken on where I stand on LE. I say this because as usual people tend to go to extremes, and if someone isn’t on the same level of extreme then they are treated as if they’re on the opposing end. Instead of a simple difference of how quick a person has a knee jerk reaction until more comes out on it. I will wait myself unlike you, is that what you have a real problem with?

        If and when it comes out that this guy is proven to be a steaming pile of crap which I’m pretty sure will be the case. That’s when I will have the body of evidence to really speak my mind, not just on someone saying, “we withheld video because it was bad.” Considering the news says this kind of stuff all the time. “Guy had a gun but police are withholding evidence until investigation is over”, guy doesn’t end up having gun. “Guy was “charging” officer, video comes out and he wasn’t etc, etc, etc. In the end when it all comes out a definitive judgement of the events can be made of which most of the time LE are lying sacks that won’t cross that thin blue line. They will also use a union to protect them from even raping underage girls, and murdering innocents, this is something most of us know.

    Let’s please not go nazi state and talk about removing children from the home and shit. Jesus… All the research says it is detrimental for the health of the child. take the guy out of the home. 🙂

  • Guy

    So you all mutton headed liberals that are okay with this, just thinking that a little discipline is in order, no big deal, the little girl deserving it for her infraction to daddy’s rules, and mom just going along with it, because why upset the apple cart !?

    Let me clue you dumb schmucks in on something. When she grows up and starts behaving exactly like her parents taught her to be, and uses the same techniques and manner of speaking, to her own children, then as is now. Will all you be okay with that too ? Or perhaps she will become a teacher, and one day fly’s off and gives your son or daughter a wack, along with a good tongue lashing. for some infraction of the rules in her classroom, what about then, are you all just going to say they deserved it, no big deal ? Or will you all come out then, ready to burn the school down, sueing her and everyone else you can get your hands on, while telling every one who will listen, that you just can’t understand why teachers, parents and good common decent folk act that way !

    Just look in the mirror jerk, you will get youre answer, maybe then, you will start to see why cops, act the way they do, and it’s not all about the badage either !

  • Steve Cox

    Pretty standard course of action for cops isn’t it? I used to play a game with a cop who illegally put his own child on a leg monitor and bragged about torturing her. I knew nothing about the guy in real life so I couldn’t do anything about it except stop associating. I remember the day that one cop threw that 13 year old girl in class, guy I played with said he would have done more.

  • Gary Fleshman

    Yep, the bible sanctions child abuse…

    Proverbs 23:13-14 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
    Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
    Exodus 21:15 Whoever strikes his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death.
    Exodus 21:17 Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.
    Leviticus 20:9 Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death. Because they have cursed their father or mother, their blood will be on their own head.
    Matthew 15:4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’

    Sounds like you need to kill your kids…

    This does not surprise me at all. There have been many cases of cops abusing their wives and children, after all the lot of them are psychopathic creeps. People who abuse their children are given a pass as long as they quote some religious bull shit from a book of fairy tales.

    As for those two pigs, obviously suffering from mental illness brought about by religious nonsense, they both need to be removed from their jobs and sent to prison, where they can proselytize to other criminals all they want.

    No excuse, no matter how much religious bull shit any one dares to quote. Shove where the sun doesn’t shine!

  • Candace Sturtevant

    I believe in the criteria for #SadisticPersonalityDisorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 3, which was investigated as a new disorder in that book. It was not realized as a disorder because it was too gender specific towards males. I lived with a person with this disorder from 22 to 30. Living under an abusers control, whether a person is 3 years or 22 years or any age, is a scary thing. This video is proof of that. as my stomach turns over to a sick feeling inside, that I will never be safe, I will never fully trust a man, I will live in fear of being beat down because I am nothing. It pains me so to hear the lack of control in the cops voice. I am glad not to see it all as, that was enough to know that man does not deserve a family because he is akin to the devil himself.. I hear a total lack of compassion in his voice, I see his brute force over someone weaker than him, and I say: that he deserves to be cussed at and whipped with a belt by #ArnoldSchwarzenegger #TheRock and #GodsWrath a hundred times over.

    It would be better to learn of #SelfDefeatingPersonalityDisorder, than blame the mother. I didn’t hear her brutalizing anyone. She is probably brutalized herself, but the video doesn’t show that.

    Finally, I see the man has a large abdominal cavity, that could be ascites from alcohol consumption, or it could be too many donuts. Whatever the cause of the man’s rage against life; the fact that it is against his own flesh and blood is the worst. He obviously hates himself; or why else would a person beat someone up, who is half of his flesh and blood. Why? #SadisticPersonalityDisorder Read ’em and weep. I weep at heartunes I wish these kids get a way better dad immediately. He certainly has some mental illness issues, and one of them could be alcoholism. I in know way have to guess; although, that he is an abuser of the worse kind=a child abuser. All about the POWER. God’s gonna cut him down. I pray for that.
