Today at a gas station at 16/73 intersection, I witnessed an ugly scene. I approached the van next to my car to get the squeegie, when I was passed by an obviously agitated man. He went around his van, drug an 8-year-old boy out of the van, pulled him across the parking lot up to the concrete retaining wall, and proceeded to berate the boy in public. Meanwhile, non-concerned mom sat in the van (with a younger obviously frightened boy), and talked on the phone.
School is out, and the morons are taking their children for rides in Denver. I have the plate, and wish that the sheriff had arrived before they drove away. btw, when they got back to the van, the mom accused the boy of lying. Did he? I have no idea. But I know I witnessed very bad and unproductive parenting. A kid that scared will lie to avoid the abuse. The kid obviously expected to get hit. Only reason he didn't imo, is that I made sure they knew I was watching. Unfortunately, the only thing that will be accomplished by this dad's "discipline" is to raise two young men every bit as socially stupid as he is. Mom should be ashamed of herself, too. Honestly, is this our small-town values on display?They could afford a very nice car, so I suspect what they value is not their children....
