A couple in Washington have been arrested after the man forced his 16-year-old stepdaughter to wear armor and wield a wooden sword to fight him in medieval combat for over two hours.
Reportedly, the couple was punishing the girl for attending a party without their permission. The rampage started with the man, Fremon Seay, punching the girl and beating her with a stick before turning to ritual combat. Two hours later, the girl collapsed from exhaustion. Although the parents insist that it is their right to punish her as they see fit, police did not agree and arrested the parents – the mother as well, who witnessed the entire scene without reporting it to police – for child abuse.
The mother, Julie Seay, is definitely the weirdest component in this story, not only since she did nothing to stop the severe beating of her daughter, but also because she works at the ‘Loving and Learning’ daycare center in Yelm, Washington. They had no comment on the matter. [Source; Image]
