Another day brings another story about Sam Malone's bad-assed, disloyal son. This time the Cincinnati Enquirer has a story "Son says Malone hit him in '02" which explores allegations in another email allegedly sent from the kid and his troublemaking aunt, Melinda Wreh, to the media. Here's the essence of the story:
Malone's son called his father a liar in an interview with The Enquirer on Friday and in an e-mail he wrote to WCPO-TV(Channel 9) on July 1, detailing the 2002 allegation.
"He knows about this abuse with a belt. It was at my old school,'' the e-mail states. "I went to school with the bruises and showed them to my teacher. ... The school call 241-KIDS and they took pictures of my right leg where I had a cut for a very long time.
"My dad soon pulled me out of the school and I got another bad whooping,'' the e-mail continued.
Yeah. So what? Sam gave the kid an ass "whooping," he went to school crying, the school called 241-kids which investigated and found nothing wrong, no criminal charges were filed, but the kid -- like many adults who've commented on the lastest little butt whipping -- didn't get the message: the State of Ohio allows parents to whip an unruly child, so don't act up if you don't want to get whipped.
I'm starting to the trouble with Sam's son is that maybe Sam didn't whip him enough! I mean assuming the kid calls 241-kids everytime he gets a whipping, and the last whipping he got was in 2002, maybe Sam was being too lenient for 3 years instead of doing his duty to administer consistent and stern discipline to this obviously bad kid. As my parents used to tell me, it probably hurt Sam more to whip his son than it hurt his son.
The media is wrong for keeping this going. [Note to Malone: sorry about calling your kid bad but I have to call it like I see it. And enough already with the lame statements. Where is your worthless lawyer to speak on your behalf?]
