You guys need to look at the bigger picture. Pretty soon they'll be arresting Traditional Catholics for subjecting their children to any form of discipline.
In years past, and currently in the State of Ohio still, unless there's actually lasting damage caused to a child, it's not considered "abuse" where the state would intervene.
These are small steps towards removing the authority that parents have over there children.
So now every time a child has a red mark on his chest, the father can be arrested? Red mark? Big deal. And who cares what the guy "looks" like? If he was out of control, there would be signs of physical harm other than a red mark.
I think you need to wake up to what's going on.
