Apparently, Todd Marcum failed to get this message. Todd thought it would be “funny” to shock his 4 kids, all under the age of 10. While I agree it sounds funny, I am sure there are some sort of rules against it. (Here’s a pic of Todd).
I guess this all happened when Todd’s wife was at work. He shocked each kid and then chased them around threatening to do it again. Unfortunately, these kids failed to see the humor in this fun game and one of the little rats called the mom. She came home, got the story, and then called the po-po on her old man.
The truth is, this is despicable behavior. Water boarding is way funnier and much more age appropriate. Plus, the dog collar just doesn’t put out the kind of voltage you need to really have a good time. Too bad Todd didn’t have a Taser. Then he could have zapped them and watched them flop on the ground for awhile.
What’s interesting to me is that no one has a problem electrocuting a defenseless dog but if you do it to a kid, everyone screams “abuse”. Ask the dog how he feels about having his nads shrunk every time he gets jolted for walking too far off of the beaten path.
Todd was charged with four first-degree criminal mistreatment charges and is currently in jail. When he gets out and gets home, he is probably gonna get an a** whippin’ from Mrs. Marcum. You would think she would know what kind of sense of humor her husband has since they have a 9 year old. My guess is that he is not allowed to watch the kids anymore. Of course, that might have been his master plan all along.
Now, before all of you dads run out and buy a shock collar so you too can get out of watching the kids, realize that it is illegal. Again, I would suggest using government approved torture so you can at least use that excuse when you go to court. “But your Honor, Dick Cheney said we could do it!” Of course, if you get a “Barry” judge, your goose is cooked.
I hope the Kate + 8 husband doesn’t find out about this. He will be ordering shock collars for the whole gaggle of kids.
Jon, just be sure to get a large one for your shrew wife and give her double the voltage. Maybe that will shut her the hell up for at least a brief period of time. By the way, good luck with your new girlfriend (who is way hotter than your crazy, narcissistic wife. What the hell is going on with her hair, anyway?)
