More then likely ..down the road..the Miami Police will be locking this child up.. where worse things then that will happen to him.. all you have to do is read the news to see that the father was probably at wits end ..with him.. Other parents have locked their kids in closets.. drown them.. shot them etc... And this kid..was pretty much safe.. In a public area.. Kind of a kin to taking a person down town and putting them in the stocks for a day... I'm betting that it served as a deterent to bad conduct..back in it's day.. TO be literally put on Public reproof.

It's bad enough that the kid was chained to the pole but even worse when the Father left him there and went shopping.
The article is dated today but I am guessing this happened on Saturday.
Take a look at the weather report for Miami on May 11th.

The facts of this situation will shortly be misrepresented, most likely by HmmmWhorshipingMomster, to make this somehow a crime committed by a JW and, thus, representative of each and every JW on the planet - like the situation with Ariel Castro, a man who was not a JW.

The father looks like he just got right off the boat.

He was probably fried. And most likely not very responsible to start off with.

Perhaps, both can now get the help they need.

The article said that this occurred on Sunday.

I missed that.
Thank you for the correction.
So then, check out Sundays weather report. It should be almost identical to Saturday.
We are in tropical storm season and this weekend was pretty ugly.

I think it ended up here by roboblogger because a JW rescued him.

I agree...what difference does it make what religion they were?
It was BAD what that father did, if he was the same religion I was, I would say the same NO matter what!

Could JW's do that? If you say yes, I have a hard time believing that, because it seems most JW's defend ALL JW's no matter what they do!

Would it make a difference if the father and son were Jehovah's Witnesses? If so, why?

So not true. We help each other to stay on the narrow road. If we see our brother taking a wrong path, we let him know. When someone shows they are set on doing bad, we refuse to have anything to do with that person. And we get criticized for what the world calls "shunning" them. If someone repents and determines to get back on the narrow path, we welcome them back and help them again.

.
. To you.. It might.. I fully believe that no matter what religion one is.. there are those that will do wrong.. And the difference is the JW's will deny that the person was ever a witness.. Rather then admit it..

. Yet.. when someone points the so called JW's to that narrow path and tells them what they need to do to stay on it..the so called ones on here throw a hissy fit and call them names..

You let the one know who is taking a "wrong path," or you report him to the elders? How do you know that someone is set on doing bad? Do you get to sit in on the judicial committee meetings where three elders make that determination? You refuse to have anything to do with a person whom the ELDERS deem to be an unrepentant sinner. This may or may not be true. JWs don't act on their own.

Also, YOU have no input on welcoming back a "repentant" one. That, again, is something that is determined by the elders. When THEY decide that the person is sufficiently repentant, THEY tell you that you can now "welcome them back." YOU don't have any input whatsoever.

Why are making it seem as if individual JWs can actually use their own consciences in these matters? They can't. If they do, and they don't follow what the elders TELL them to do, they risk being shunned themselves.
