    So if he had sent his son to military school and the kid had to move rock there, he isn't a victim? But since it was his father, he is?

    If a military school made the kid move a rock several miles for hours on end with no water in ninety degree heat, that would be criminal.

I can't help but think the father's got some issues to work out here. Nice to see he's in counseling. I hope he gets something out of it.
    Agreed, but I tend to doubt that this guy will get anything out of counseling unless he really wants to change. My guess; he seriously believes his son is the one with the problem, not him.

    I don't find this punishment rises to the level of cruelty... over the top, maybe.. but not cruelty or abuse.
    instead of forced marches ( not that 3 miles in under 2 hours is tough by any stretch of the imagination).. I chose push ups, crunches, mountain climbers, and bends and thrusts as negative reinforcements

    throwing his father in jail and preventing ( chilling effect) him from raising he child with discipline is far more harmful to this kid than having him walk 3 miles with a rock.

    at least the guy is instilling some discipline in his child... altogether too many parents can't be bothered to do even that, which results in their child gaining entrance into the throngs of young adults who are complete and utter assholes.

    Almost certainly, but if there is any hope for this person counseling is the way to find it. It would have been pointless to throw him in jail.
