This is why I hope to god I never have a girl. Guy with no criminal record who looks like Joe Everyman is now behind bars for just trying to be a good dad. You honestly can’t win. I mean what would you do in this situation? Just sit there and let these two punks Eiffel Tower your daughter? Obviously you got to point a gun at them, pistol whip your daughter and threaten to kill these kids if they ever hang out with her again. No other choice. And the worst part is now that he’s in jail you know Little Lucy is going to end up on the business end of a bukkake with nobody there to stop it. Shit ain’t right.
