And the IDIOT of the week is........Alton Walter! This dispicable loser, who just happens to be a Richmond County Georgia Sheriff’s deputy, is facing felony charges of false imprisonment and cruelty to children in the first degree for allegedly handcuffing a 12-year-old boy to a pole, then beating and tasering him.
The child’s mother, who has not been identified, reportedly called upon her "friend" Walter to speak to her son about his unruly behavior. The deputy, who was off-duty, went to the woman’s home when she was not there and reportedly took it upon himself to physically discipline the child. While at the home, Walters allegedly handcuffed the child to a basketball goal, slapped the boy across his face several times, punched him in the stomach and tasered him as if he were torturing him.
A neighbor, who claimed to have witnessed Walters abusing the crying boy when he peeped over his fence summoned authorities. The unidentified man also told authorities he also saw Walters using his baton on the child, states the news outlet.
Based upon the evidence that has been presented thus far, Walters has not only been criminally charged but fired, effective immediately from his position as a deputy as well.
Meanwhile, the boy was examined by EMS workers who were also summoned to the scene.
The investigation is still ongoing.
Every boy needs and deserves to have a strong male role model in his life. The word strong needs to be put into context so that we all realize, recognize and understand the fact that physical strength pales in comparison to strength of character. A man's true strength lies in his willing to do two things, following Christ and setting a standard. With that being said we must be ever so vigilant in whom we allow into our children's lives. Of course the boys mother had good intentions. But having a man talk to him or discipline his was not enough. It had to be the right man.
