Being a parent is an awesome responsibility and when your children do something inappropriate, then it is a parent's responsibility to discipline them accordingly. Sometimes parents fail miserably and deserve to be punished themselves. Two teenage girls were brutally beaten with a cable wire by a man (apparently their father) after finding out the girls had posted a "twerk" video on Facebook.

Twerking is a type of dance move that involves a person moving and shaking their hips in a sexually provactive manner. Twerk is a kind of permutaion of the words twist and jerk. Should teenage girls be posting videos of themselves twerking on Facebook? Absolutely not. Should a responsible adult hold them accountable and discipline them for that type of behaviour? Absolutely. Is cruelly beating them with a cable wire an appropriate form of punishment? NO WAY!!!

I watched the video below and there is no doubt in my mind that what is happening to those girls is a violent form of physical abuse. I do not see it as discipline at all. The man is out of control and whipping them while they scream in a way that leaves no doubt to how much pain they are experiencing.

What is the point of that type of abuse? Beating a child into submission is not the same as disciplining them and teaching them valuable life lessons. Holy cow! As a society we do not beat the vilest of the vile in jail the way those girls were beat because it is considered a form of cruel or unusual punishment. It is the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Please be aware that both the footage and audio of this video is very disturbing.

I hope this helps to put him in jail or anger management and for them to learn that sometimes stupid desicions have horrible consequences.

i don't believe in beating them to death , usig a diffrent appouch to these issues is better, don't how long this man had to built up this much anger....where is the mom? when my son was small, and he did not do what he was suppose to do and get out of line, he would count beans, i would put alot in a jar dump them and told him i knew how many was there and to think how he can be a better person while he is counting, two to three tries and he learned about his consiquences, later about 7-10 i had to get more clever ideas but it worked.

where in the world did happend?In the USA, He should be investigated by the CPA

I can see disipling his daughters but to beat them with a cable wire is just brutal. There was a better way to handle that situation. He could take their phone, computer etc. from them. There are other punishments that he could of used. I believe in spankings but not in beatings. That is too harsh and the pain is unbearable. There is a difference between spankings and beatings and he chose to beat his daughters. He should be punished for what he did to them. That is cruel and he looked like he was inraged why he was beating them. He should be put in jail just long enough for him to think about what he has done to his daughters. That was crazy to watch. I felt like I was getting hit along with them!

Not sure what should be the punishment for the girls but the mom should tie dear old dad up spread eagled and tell the girls they have 10 minutes to beat him "anywhere" they want to, and hopefully it would be something "they" do not have.

Mike, I like your suggest but I would give the girls a half hour and I would make sure dear old dad is naked when they are beating him.
