    OH - Father locked daughter in cage, photos made it to Facebook

    A man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly bound and locked his daughter in a cage as a form of punishment.

    He also bound her with duct tape and threatened to electrify the cage
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    He's a charming example of father hood, isn't he? Makes me wonder what happened in that house in all the years before this...one does not just wake up one morning and decided to terrorize their kid(s).

    The girl was in the cage for about 20 minutes until her brother let her out. She then retaliated against her father by pouring water on her father's head and in his ear.

    Boy, that sure was a funny joke. NOT! How many times have we heard the "it was a joke" excuse for abusive parental behavior? Sorry, not buying.

    Wow. I don't have sound, but dads body language in that video appeared to me that he was both having a hard time containing his anger at being there and really did not appreciate the seriousness of the (alleged) crimes against his daughter. If this is dads idea of horseplay, I'd hate to see his idea of discipline.

    I hope none of his children have to be unsupervised around him ever again. I feel sorry for both his kids and the grandmother (who I will assume is his mom) had to live with. I hope they are all able to get away from him and his abuse.

    I was thinking-I am so glad Facebook exists. These not so 'parenting' parents take pics of the stupid or cruel things they do, and post them on Facebook. Thus, they are found out, punished (sometimes) and the children are removed from their care. How many of these cases would go undetected or never stopped without Facebook?

    (snip)

    Today in court, Tapke's lawyer told the judge that his client was just joking around, and he believes the Facebook photos will prove that case. The prosecutor asked the judge to double Tapke's bond to show the seriousness of the allegation. The judge agreed-and now Tapke is held on $50,000.

    During the arraignment, Tapke shook his head, muttered profanities under his breath and then made an obscene gesture at the cameras when he left.

    Tapke's daughter and son are with their mother at this time while he remains behind bars.

    I hope the kids are still with mom. I would fight in court to deny him any contact with his kids. He has already partly created a future battered wife and an abusive husband and father. These kids need some excellent therapists to work with. And the sperm donor should pay for it. JMO
