Laptop-shooting dad's rant draws raves, reprimands

Posted:

AP - Parents around the country are praising and chastising a North Carolina dad who answered his teenage daughter's Facebook complaints by blowing away her computer.

Tommy Jordan of Albemarle recorded his response and posted it online last week. More than 26 million people have seen the video in which Jordan reads and replies to his daughter's rant before emptying his .45-caliber pistol into her laptop as it lies on the ground.

Sonia Carballo called Jordan a parent after her own heart. The Bethlehem, Pa., mom says Jordan's 15-year-old daughter was disrespectful.

Gary Baker of New York City says all parents find themselves pushed to the edge from time to time. But the father of two teens himself thinks Jordan overreacted.
