Last month, we posted a report on a father who videotaped himself disciplining his son by using corporal punishment. Apparently, on Sept. 26th, the father, Devery Michael Broox, 25, was arrested for child abuse.
In our prior article we stated:
The father rebuking his son for getting into trouble at school. The father is actually filming the child as he shaves his head and eyebrows, whoops his child with a belt and have him exercise outside in boot camp style.
An associate professor at Howard University, Dr. Ivory Toldson quoted another article on the subject and said that Broox should be arrested.
Word has been out now that Devery Michael Broox has been arrested (http://www.jailbase.com/en/arrested/fl-occ/2011-09-26/devery-michael-broox-11037327) for his actions.
We can see why the father was arrested and he should know now that he went too far. By videotaping it, it was embarrassing and damaging to this young boy along with disturbing for all of us. Though we believe in not ‘sparing the rod’ as the bible states, he crossed the line on that day and now he will pay the price for his choices.
We pray the boy will get the support he needs to heal from this.
