#1 I guess his point was that a laptop doesn't hold up well against gunfire.

#3 That's a good dad, cares about his daughter. I bet she got the point!

#4 She is lucky.
Mom, Dad + stepmom, teenagerish. About the 'help', inexcusable. I am only five years in and if I find myself sitting, I have forgotten to do something and still put smiles on my kids faces after a 9-5. Dad was right, itsa good dad. Seriously, by the time she gets out and then checks her status, that will be waiting. Pleases and thank you's.
Personally, I would have grabbed the hooligan tool. No, don't correct my accent on this one.

#5 Would have worked better if he'd shown the laptop on to that post his daughter made. As is I got the impression he had a dead laptop (he is an IT guy after all) and shot it, saying it was hers.

#6 He said it was HER laptop, then he destroyed it. Is that legal, even if she is your kid, and deserves it?

#7 Who bought it, Glenmore?

#8 Doesn't matter who bought it once it's given to her and called HERS. Now the internet connection was almost certainly not her own and probably should have been shut off a long time ago. Depending on local laws and just how her father accessed her Facebook account he might be on the wrong side of the law there too (IANAL) - though if so, that doesn't make the law right, it just makes it the law.

#9 Is that legal
Yes, as long as she is legally a minor*. While the ACLU may claim children have adult 'rights' [but strangely should never suffer 'adult' punishments for crimes committed and convicted], they are treated as a separate class from adults by the legal system. Now children are covered by 'human' rights which should not be confused with 'civil' rights. They may overlap at times, but its a bit of Three Card Monty when advocates start playing the linguistic game.
Now as to discharging a firearm in town or metro area, that might be a separate issue. That's how things like this usually are handled.
* Courts have processed appeals of emancipation by minors who seek independence from their parents. Then the kid is usually responsible to show that they can support themselves without the parents or the state providing resources. Not to be confused with various Congressional actions to extend dependent adult childhood to 23+ [see:Obamacare].

#10 Good for Daddy, a bit extreme, but good.

#11 Then let her produce a copy of the receipt with signed-over ownership.
Is it her room? Her car?
And if farcebook can be loaded up by sum gn'tottn' hat wrn' no care for no gn'shootn' law duude, then maybe there is no such thing as right of privacy - or ownership of material - on that deal.

#12 Need more MEN like him around this country. That's one family the Nanny-state hasn't taken!

Here's the way to go:
Saiga 12. There are lots of others like it in the "Alley Cleaner" class. Some with shorter barrels. Try not to drool on it, please.
