Michigan man gets prison time for assaulting daughter during forced exorcism

on

According to the Detroit Free Press, a man from a town east of Lansing, Michigan has been sentenced for slapping his adult daughter after what she refers to as a “forced exorcism.”

Last fall, the then-18-year-old daughter of William Watt filed a police report that claimed her dad forcibly slapped her during in argument that was started in part by her family attempting to perform and exorcism on her.

According to the police report, the girl was sitting on a couch in her family home when “Watt, his wife and son approached her and began chanting ‘the power of Christ compels you.'”

After being assaulted with various objects by her family, the girl left the house to go to work, but when she returned, she said her father, who had a history of criminal offenses for domestic violence against family members, accused her of “stealing his food,” and then slapped her across the cheek. After leaving the house, the teen called the police.

“You can’t put your hands on your adult children. You don’t get to kick around your kids because they’re your kids,” Watt’s daughter said during her sentencing. “You don’t get to grab her neck or slap her in the face.”

Immigration expert explains why Trump’s migrant policy won’t work

Published

on

After President Trump let the audience at his rally in Greenville, North Carolina, shout "send her back!" after he falsely accused Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of anti-Semitism, Republicans grew nervous about a backlash -- that this time, Trump had gone too far.

But the incident merely caps years of severe and inhumane rhetoric and policy targeting migrants. Raw Story spoke with Stephen Yale-Loehr, Professor of Immigration Law Practice at Cornell Law School, about why Trump and the GOP are enacting inhumane policies that won't even work to accomplish their goals.
