    Take your grandkids on a forced march through the Grand Canyon.
    A jury agreed the guy went about it the wrong way and now he's facing life in prison.
    Oh, and the next time I hear some idiot complain about how soft and politically correct society has become and how you can't yell at your kids without somebody calling child protective services, I'd like them to read about this and that woman in Alabama who ran her kid to death because she lied about eating a candy bar.
    And 45 is way too young to be a grandfather of three.

    Your last line undersells the generational math. He has a 12-year-old grandson, meaning he became a grandpappy at 32/33. Story says he became a dad at 15 and his daughter gave birth at 17.

    Methinks that could be a contributing factor to his unorthodox style.

    Shit. I'm 41 and my kids are 4 and 6. My son needs to get on the ball if I'm gonna catch up.
