A Louisiana father is facing cruelty charges after allegedly locking his son in a horse stable overnight.
“Local news outlets report that 71-year-old Douglas Oneal of Baker was arrested Monday. Detectives say he locked his 13-year-old son in the trailer Sunday night for almost 12 hours to punish him for being disrespectful to him and his girlfriend.
Detectives also found horse feces inside the metal trailer, along with a Bible and a makeshift bed made of saddles and a plastic bag that smelled of urine.
Oneal’s arrest report says he told deputies that whipping his son was no longer working, “so he had to do something else” to teach his son a lesson. It’s unclear if the man has an attorney.”
Ah good old Baker, Louisiana. Never been but this sounds about right. Locked in a horse stable huh? That’s a new one. Don’t hate it though. That 13 year old bastard was immune to those whippings so naturally you have to take the next step. This is the modern day equivalent of counting to 10 after asking your kid nicely. Lock em in a horse stable filled with horse shit and a Bible and they’ll find their way in life. Wish my dad did that to me, now I’m just shit. Closest thing I got to a horse with my dad was shopping at the Polo outlets. For real this kids got to treat his old man with some spect’. Dude granted him life at 58 and whether it was a horrible accident or not the fact of the matter is he’s alive today because of it. Not sure if they know about Aretha Franklin out there but where I come from she’s a force to be reckoned with. I’m sad to say that while I genuinely want to wish a happy ending for this man and his son, I kind of want the kid to act up again. I’m just dying to know what this old man can think of next. I want to learn about a sick dimension of punishment my feeble mind can’t even begin to imagine. It’s like real life ‘Saw’ which had me hooked for at least two sequels. You know what they say, you can lead your son to a horse stable filled with shit but you can’t make him not be a complete piece of horse shit.
