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.”

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.”

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose.
