So Im getting it that when you say he shot her laptop you mean her computer as opposed to any kind of euphemism -

Well, I do a lot of shooting, reloading, own my own range, own a gun or two, have a carry permit, etc. and I'll be the first to say that I believe he is lacking self control and lacking quality parenting skills. I see a lot of support for this guy's jackass move. While I am sure there are lots of parents that feel this way, obviously there are more appropriate ways to handle a whiny spoiled daughter who thinks she's working too hard...

Seems to me like a waste, shooting a perfectly good laptop, when he could've just wiped it. Just because the software or the layer 8 (user) is fucked up doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the hardware.

Or he could have donated it, or whatever. But, no, he had to show his daughter how much he loathed her by publicly degrading her, then committing a senseless act of violence on a proxy. (Sorry, I just came off a psychology reading jag a couple of months ago, please add salt grains at will, but there's a whole thing about people who hate someone so they do violent things to their possessions and pets, it's usually a prelude to domestic violence or worse.) But whatever, now the whole world knows he's a psycho, HAH ha.

I can understand the destruction of a working electronics device as a publicity stunt, where the free advertising is worth more than the value of the thing (for example: the "Will it Blend?" blendtec guys that put a brand new $600 working iPhone in a blender in Sept. 2007, followed by outraged screeching from Apple fans). The youtube video views and page views were worth the $600 for them. But destroying working things just to be a dick is wasteful.

Maybe we'll find in a week that this video is some viral publicity campaign for a new TV show about a rebellious teenage daughter... sigh... cue the laugh track.

I was a very happy young vandal, so destroying things for thrills is never wasteful.
I'm not really a proper reporter, due to the chronic lack of discipline, negligible attention span, and a certain juvenile difficulty taking serious things seriously.

But then Mr. "Don't Complain In Public About Family Issues" would not have been made famous for airing his families problems.

Every teenager complains about not getting paid for doing chores. Partents blowing off their complaints and not paying them inspire them to get a job and get paid for their labor later. Duh. He would have given her a more valuable lesson by keeping his cakehole and wallet shut.

Now what father never buys things for their daughter? What father would never say a word to their daughter?

That wouldn't be a father at all.

Parent 101: At the terrible two stage of child development simply do absolutely nothing. Yah right. There would be many parents losing their kids to child services in that case.
