Father of the Year
« on: June 27, 2019, 06:06:57 PM »
Wisconsin man allegedly punched and killed his 5-year-old son after he got angry the child had eaten his Father's Day cake, according to prosecutors.

Travis Stackhouse told police he punched the boy in the stomach and hit him in the face Friday because he was "upset that others were eating" his Father's Day cake, a criminal complaint stated.

I once ate a dessert out of the fridge my wife considered reserved for her and I heard about it for years.  I shudder to think what might have happened if I wasn't bigger (or if she had a gun).

...but you two want 'five minutes alone' with someone cruel to an animal.  

y'all make no sense to me... either you're cruel or your not.  there is a demand for consistency.

Point taken, Drew.  I wasn't going to make light of the situation but figured what the heck if Pitchy was going to...

The difference is the child, whether 5 years old or unborn, is innocent and defenseless, much like the dog.  The people that abuse dogs and children are not.

yes.... and the people who abide such behavior are either cruel, by either supporting or being apathetic, or, they aren't cruel and stand against it categorically be it a person or pet.

i've been plenty cruel in my life- i offer no excuse.  it haunts me worse at some times than others.  i tell myself 'at least it does' as opposed to it not.  maybe that makes a difference at some juncture.  maybe it doesn't.  i have a hard time killing even a bug nowadays... except yellow jackets.  yellow jackets are flying assholes and deserve to be killed categorically.  < bad attempt at humor.  i won't even harm them unless i need to.  it's good to know, i guess, the capacity is right there under the surface if needed.  some people claim they can't- i tell 'em "you just ain't been properly presented to know what you can and can't do".  the difference is whether or not they wanted to harm something or not.... not that it matters to the harmed.

Drew, I'm always grateful for the service of those like you and VolRage that have committed acts of violence so that people like me can pontificate on a chat site what I might do to someone who abandoned a dog.  Truth be told I probably wouldn't harm a hair on their low-IQ little head.   

But one of my biggest fears, 2nd only to having any harm come to my son, is that someone might break into my home and kill my goofy, lovable Husky just because he looks the part.  That's the main reason I've reinforced my doors, have an alarm system, and keep lights on in my house during the daytime.  If I were to find someone in my house that had harmed Maverick, I would do all I could to make the last minutes of their life miserable.

I think I'm the FOTY.

I picked up a suit today that I have to wear on my youngest boy's wedding day, which I've already paid for.

He's a Marine. Good on that. Sniper champion. Good on that. Great kid. Even better.


He's marrying a nurse. Awesome.

I offered a destination wedding in Hawaii or the Caribbean. Nope. I have to wear a suit in Lake Geneva, WI on July 5. F'ing July 5. Outdoor wedding on July friggin 5. 


Shoot me in the head.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

just on the 'count it makes sense to share it:  anger/rage is rarely a primary response.  it's fear, or shame, or something else that gets translated to rage so we can do something about 'it'.   it's damn hard, in some situations, to think it through.  rage is damn sure valuable- it makes mere mortals freaks of nature and capable of doing heinous things.  raging on an animal (one that can't really harm you) or a child is..... weak.  raging on something that can or is causing you harm? go for it.  

here is a story for you:  I was once in contact, and reloaded three times and have zero recollection of it.  the magazines were empty and i was the only one carrying that particular weapon that they fit.  I certainly recall firing, but i'll be damned, to this day, if i recall reloading... i've since added it to the memory, but not in a precise 'place' for lack of better explanation.  rage did that i'm pretty sure, but i'm pretty sure rage started life as being scared shitless.

@847badgerfan : congrats, Sir!!!! tell your son to wear his hogs tooth and not to forget it... that is the perfect time to challenge!!!

:D

I'm guessing the weather in Lake Geneva WI is warm?   Could be worse, you could have an outdoor wedding in Texas on July 5th.   

We hosted a friend's wedding in our backyard (years ago) in September, and it was steaming.   Everyone had a good time, but the late heat wave made it miserable.   

Good luck!

A guy here says hold my beer.

He punched his one month old son in the head after losing a video game.  Then he claims when he tried to comfort the baby he dropped him.  Finally called 911 when the baby was struggling but he died a couple of days later.
