There are multiple angles where this article can go. Let me start by saying no one at MiddleEasy.com advocates any form of child abuse, but maybe if father's challenged their sons to boxing matches after they betrayed them by having cyber sex on Facebook then our society would be in a much better place. Maybe Houston Alexander wanted to stop his son from making the same mistakes he did in life. Maybe, just maybe, we need tough love back in style, and Houston Alexander can be the face of this parenting revolution.
Then again no one knows how skilled a boxer Houston Alexander's 16 year old son was, so if anything this should have been a 2 round mixed rules match. The first round would consist of the combatants displaying their cyber sex skills on Facebook and the 2nd round would be composed entirely of boxing in a basement. Lets see this at Genki Desu Ka 2012. Please make it happen Japanese people who are putting on Desu Ka 2011.
Here is the report from the always on the ball Kathy Niver from KMTV News Omaha:
Police ticketed popular MMA fighter Houston Alexander for child abuse after the 39-year-old became upset with his 16-year-old and made him box with him.
Police reports say officers were called to a home near 44th and Maple for a domestic disturbance. The older Alexander told them he was having trouble with his teen son, who was "having explicit sexual contact on Facebook with some unknown females." The 16-year-old reportedly lied and "made him very upset."
According to police reports, "Alexander then retrieved boxing gloves and told his son, 'If you are going to lie to me, then we are going to box.'" The two reportedly boxed in the basement. Officers describe the teen as having a "slight bloody nose and pain to his right side."
Alexander was cited for misdemeanor child abuse.
Is it still called 'cybering' or did I just totally date myself, AIM 1.0 style?
