Texas Man Arrested For Holding Down Girl So His Daughter Could Beat HerMark Shrayber6/24/14 8:30pmFiled to: Child abuseInjury863EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkDarren Keith Patrick was arrested on June 19th for helping his daughter. While the preceding sentence could cause some outrage (why would anyone arrest a father trying to help his child?), Patrick wasn't arrested for assisting his daughter in any traditional way. Instead, he held down another girl as his daughter beat her and called her names. That doesn't sound like good quality time.Patrick's story is not completely uncommon. Several months ago, a mother beat up a pre-teen for harassing her daughter, another mother hit a child with a hammer. While Patrick didn't actually hit the girl (reports suggest only his daughter did), he did chase her on a bicycle and hold her down so that his daughter would have easier access to the girl's body. There are no words for how horrible this is.
