Crazy Talk


Just got the strangest unconfirmed report of a Devon employee finding
a young child duct taped to a tree near FM 2123.

All rumor so far.

Barry (from mobile)

Edit: Caught the story on Fox 4 but there's not a whole lot to it. Saw an interview with the High Sheriff. One arrest was made. The mugshot will probably be on tonight's news.

Edit 2: Fox 4 has the video up.

I can think of SO many parents who would LOVE to duct tape their child to a tree - but to REALLY DO IT? I can't wait till Fox 4 gets their hands on this story. It will be hillarious

It is true Fox 4 helicopter in Cottondale right now! I heard on the scanner that an arrest was made and I am still listening to the scanner to see if they give his name. What a dumb ass!

In my day, we just tied the scoundrels to the tree with a rope. There was no such thing as duct tape!

Now get off my lawn!

It was probably my brother in law duct taping my nephew to a tree - he is such a brat

Anonymous said...

I used to do that but I used chains so I knew he couldn't get free. No lasting ill affects to the kid either that I could ever see and next year when he's released from prison I'm as sure as I can be that he'll be a model citizen.

before too long there will probably be reports of two men in the same shoes as the kid in the big city of Alvord the way things keep goin...

They did give the name of the person arrested, (born in 1972) but I would'nt want to give that up because I would not feel right just in case I was wrong, in other words, I would'nt want people giving up my name just in case they did'nt know what they were talking about!!

After having made a recent trip to Noah's Ark pet store in Decatur, there are a NUMBER of kids I hope were the one duct taped to the tree. The better news if it had been one of the particular kids is that at least one of their irresponsible parents would, hopefully, spend some time in jail.

I remember one summer, a long time ago, throwing an old letter opener (a sharp, deadly instrument) at my sister. I was aiming squarely for her head. She slammed her bedroom door just in time. But the letter opener stuck, and you can still see the spot in the door to this day.

That was after she beat me with a hairbrush and tried to run over me in Dad's truck. I rolled under the fence. I knew she wouldn't drive thru it because Dad would have kicked her a$$ to hell and back. And before we could get it all sorted out, the cows would have gotten out and that would have been a big mess.

It all started when I wanted to watch Popeye (it was my day for TV choice, and she wanted to watch "Somethin' Else" on channel 8 and I wouldn't give in.) She was sixteen and I was seven. Well after that melodrama was over, I was watching Popeye, so I guess I could say I won.

If my Dad had found out about our shenanigans that day, we'd have both been roped (we only had masking tape in those days) to a tree, after having our arses busted with a leather belt, and left for no less than three days without water.

Ah, the rituals of summer; I remember them well.

They just sentenced the "Duct Tape Bandit" from KY to 10 years in the big house. Also wasn't a women recently found in a park duct taped to something? Something is up.

Get real 3:52 they can put it over the scanner for all the white trash Gladys Kravitz's of our part of the world but it violates some ethical standard to mention it here? Don't be silly.

The person charged w/the crime is Glenn Castille, charged with injury to a child with intent to do bodily injury. No bond has been set as of yet. It's on the sheriff's website.

Where was the mom? Channel 4 says that she was home and knew about the taping. She probably needs to go to jail too.

Why is this even news......

I'm guessing the time my Dad beat me with rolled up bailing wire out of the back of the pickup was no big deal. Or the time punched out my sister for not fixing him a Weller and Coke.

What a bunch of Nannystate wimps we have become.

Notice in the newscast that Barager says those responding to the call were the "folks from the Sheriff's Department"...not officers, men, men and women, but "folks". Guess you gotta talk small town when reporting in Decatur. C'mon, folks...quit duct taping your kids to trees.

OK I belive that that government has gone to far in the area of spanking our children. Sometimes they just need it. But duct taping a child to a tree is bad no matter how you put it.

We just give our kids money and let them blow!

Kids duct taped to trees, horse and buggies, druggies, trailer houses and a killer road.

Yep, that's 2123.

But it's better than crunched up Decatur.

I feel so sorry for those children -- duct taping them to objects seems to be the way these parents punished them all the time. I don't care how bad a child acts THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE punishment. Please pray for these children!

I can see it now, a background check required before you can purchase duct tape

I can't believe the insensitivity of most on this blog. These are young children, very young children!

It doesn't matter what they've done. This is not the answer.

10:59 what is the answer for disciplining bad kids, so they don't turn into thugs and learn to respect others, if u know please tell me, don't just say "that's not the answer".....

That's how you put a kid in time out that won't stay there

12:00 It is not about disciplining bad kids trying to lead them in the right direction, it is about how this parent chose to discipline these young, young children. I don't know that any of us have the right "disciplining" answer.....but 99% of us know right from wrong and this is wrong.

betty boop said...

I'm a firm believer in disciplining children on their BOTTOM when their behavior warrants it...not all children are the same, some need more spankings than others, some need none at all, and I believe parents should never discipline their children in anger. Obviously, most of us agree that duct taping your child to a tree is "not the answer". Along with discipline, a child should always know that they are loved by their parents.

Wow. 50 comments and no one's used the word "nigger" yet.

At dinner last night, I told my family about this story and told my kids I was mad because he had stolen my idea. They didn't think it was funny.

I don't know - I didn't raise mine that way. They weren't perfect, but never once did I think of duct taping them, tying them up - anything horrible like that. You?

Who says they're bad kids anyway?

Conservatie Republicans know how to disipline an unruly child. Go Repuglicans! This is nothing like John McCain went through as punishment. Nothing at all.
