Hetero Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

Thad J. Smith was arrested Monday night on charges he shot his three children several times with an air-powered pellet gun in what he later described to police as “good fun.” …
Marengo police arrested Smith Monday night after his ex-wife reported that the couple’s children—a 10-year-old girl and twin 9-year-old boys—returned home from a visit with their father sporting numerous welts on their bodies, the police said. When questioned, Smith admitted shooting the children with small, plastic pellets fired from an air-powered gun, Deputy Police Chief Joseph Hallman said.
“He said the children were willing participants,” Hallman said. “I don’t know if it was some kind of a game with them or what he was doing.”
If it was a game, it was completely one-sided. The children, Hallman said, told police they never fired a shot back at their dad.
