To Punish Daughter, Dad Destroys Her Laptop: Tough Love or Too Extreme? (Video)

After finding a rude letter from his daughter posted on Facebook, this dad decided to teach her a lesson.

After spending six hours and $130 fixing and upgrading his 15-year-old daughter's laptop computer, Tommy Jordan was furious when he found a disrespectful, expletive-laced post on her Facebook page called "To My Parents" the very next day.

"I'm not your damn slave," the rant begins. "If you want coffee, get off your a** and get it yourself."

She thought she had blocked her mom and dad from being able to read it on Facebook, but she was wrong. So her dad (who works in IT) decided to do something about it.

"She chose to publicly embarrass her family and herself on Facebook. So I chose to make the punishment equally as embarrassing and equally as public," he said. "I was always taught that what's good for the goose is good for the gander."

He made a video of himself reading her post and shooting holes in her computer with his handgun -- and then he posted the video on YouTube and Facebook for Hannah and her friends to see when they got home from school. Some viewers say the video shows a good father meting out some tough love. Others say he went way overboard. Watch the video below, and decide for yourself:

"This is for my daughter, Hannah," the video begins. "And, more importantly, for all her friends on Facebook who thought her little rebellious post was cute, and all you parents out there who think your kids don't post bad things on Facebook."

What you think: tough love, or too extreme?
