Sad story. I can't understand why the father decided the teen took too long to do his homework. There shouldn't be a time restriction on homework. Sounds like the father is a control freak. My suggestion would be to tie the father to a pole and repeat the same method of punishment. After the physical punishment, attach a hefty fine to this man's jail time. I would be curious to know if the wife remains with this man. My concern & questions: will the teen grow up to be a healthy, happy adult? Will the teen repeat this type of abuse?

I'm assuming they are going to tie the father up and beat him with a 2x4 till it breaks, right?

Hi Lifez2short! Gosh, no child deserves to be beaten like that! I sure hope that it would be the last and I hope he will recover from that trauma psychologically, because bruises may heal but scars in the heart cut the deepest. I hope that the father will be punsihed and put in jail for a long time. Take care and have a nice day. :)

That boy is luck to be able to get up and call the police after a beating with a 2 by 4. I am glad the girl had the guts to go down and untie him.
