  1. #1 Dad Chains Fat Daughter To Bed. 
    Father accused of chaining daughter

    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
    A Las Vegas father remains jailed after his arrest on charges that he physically abused his teenage daughter because he thought she was overweight.

    Clark County jail records showed that 53-year-old Robert Blue is due today in a Las Vegas court on charges of felony child abuse and endangerment and false imprisonment with a deadly weapon.

    Authorities said that Blue was arrested Wednesday after he was accused of beating his 15-year-old daughter and chaining her to a bed.

    An arrest report alleged that the girl's parents put locks on their refrigerator and pantry doors. The report said that Blue chained the girl for two days because he thought she had been sneaking food into her room.
    I'll need to see a pic of the daughter before passing judgement here. :D

    Yeah, I'd have to know more to totally judge the dad. It's wrong to chain her to the bed, regardless, but if he'd tried repeatedly to get her help and her health was at stake, I can see why he may have chosen to take desperate measures.

    I know that some fat children in the U.K. have been removed from their homes by social services. There's a lot of pressure here through the schools to blame parents for overweight kids. Sometimes that's probably warranted but not with a teenager.

    On and off for two days, Blue's 15-year-old daughter was chained to her bed. She was found beaten and in tears -- all because Blue thought she was overweight, according to a police report.

    Blue, 53, was also arrested for beating his daughter with a wooden stick and kicking her, police said
    Blue said he was upset because his daughter weighs around 165 pounds, and Blue wanted her to weigh between 140 and 145 pounds, explaining that was her fighting weight in mixed martial arts.

    Nothing funny here. Beating a child and chaining her to a bed is inexcusable. Beating her with a wooden stick and kicking her isn't justified. Does being overweight justify this treatment? Which group is next?
