A Florida man is asking officers to oversee the spanking of his young daughter.
An officer was called to the home of a man who was trying to discipline his daughter after she said a lot of things to her sister. According to WLWT, a deputy felt that since it was legal to do this, there was no reason why he shouldn’t do it:
Although it may sound bizarre to some parents, the sheriff’s office has received several similar requests in the past. Undersheriff Noel Stephen said he has personally supervised approximately 12 spankings.
“It happens,” Stephen said. “It’s definitely not something we advertise to do, and even though law enforcement has been willing to help out in this situation, watching a parent discipline their child is something that’s done only when a deputy has no other calls to handle.
