Video of US dad who fired his gun at daughter's laptop over her Facebook complaint post goes viral

WASHINGTON (AFP) - A video of an angry American father pumping nine slugs from a handgun into his daughter's laptop has gone viral on YouTube and sparked an impassioned online debate over his parenting skills. Mr Tommy Jordan, of North Carolina, explains in the video, which he titled 'Facebook Parenting: for the troubled teen', that he was upset by a Facebook post by his 15-year-old daughter in which she complained about her parents.
