Explicit Picture Leads Father To Stun Man

An angry father is accused of using a stun gun on a 23 year old man who sent his 17 year old daughter an explicit cell phone picture.

William Atwood Sr., 45, was charged Wednesday with multiple felonies in connection with the case.

Authorities say Atwood lured Justin Moore to his home, ordered him to strip down to his boxer shorts, and tied him up and tased him with a stun gun before turning him over to a sheriff's deputy.

Some questions:
-If you have a daughter, how would you react to this scenario?
-If you are a daughter and your father did this, would emotions would this elicit in you?
-Is there something right about the father's anger?
-What type of punishment should the father get for his actions?
-If Justin Moore admitted to sending the picture to an underage teen, why is he not undergoing any punishment?
-If more fathers did things like this would young men behave themselves and act more like men?

I wouldn't convict the father if I were on the jury. Good for him.

I strongly support this man. If it were my daughter I'd do the same thing.

I think that there is definitely something right about the sentiment of this father's feelings. I also think that if men acted like men and fathers did not abdicate their role as father, these type of things would be less prevalent. With that being said, I hope I wouldn't respond in the same way as this father did, but I would hope that I would have every ounce of anger he had.

What is extremely disappointing to me is that this guy gets off the hook for sending the picture but the father is facing felony charges. Although, two wrongs don't make a right- the father still broke the law.
