Well, that didn’t take long! It is obvious that most of society and more importantly, the law, will not tolerate folks beating their children like it’s the 60s or 70s anymore.
On Wednesday, we reported on the viral video of a father seen beating his daughters for making a video of themselves “twerking”–the dirty dancing move that requires twirling and gyrating the hips and butt in a sexual maneuver. The father and his daughters have now been identified and the father has been charged with child endangerment and corporal punishment, according to the Daily Mail.
The footage is of 35-year-old Greg Horn of Dayton, Ohio, and his 12 and 14-year-old daughters. According to the report, the girls intended to post the video of themselves twerking on their Facebook page, but that was not why the beating ensued. The girls said they were being beaten for sneaking out of the house.
The girls had been visiting their dad at his home, but once they returned to their mother’s home and she saw the welts and “open wounds,” she alerted police. Horn is set to be arraigned on April 16.
Watch the report. The man has now become the poster child for Child Abuse Awareness month.
