    Taiwan teen chops off dad's hands

    TAIPEI, Taiwan A 17-year-old Taiwanese boy has been arrested for chopping off his father's hands, allegedly to avenge years of physical abuse, a police official said Tuesday.

    The boy cut through his father's wrists with a knife while he was asleep at the family's home in central Miaoli on Monday, the official said. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.

    The 37-year-old father, a divorced ironsmith, was in stable condition after doctors reattached his severed hands, the official said.

    The father and son were identified only by their surname, Fan.

    The police official said the boy admitted to cutting his father's hands off and showed no remorse, complaining that he was beaten after refusing to get a job while attending school.

    The Apple Daily newspaper quoted the boy as telling police that since his mother left home some 10 years ago, his father had frequently beat him and even tossed a chair or other objects at him.

    The boy said he bought a knife and planned to kill his father two days earlier after his father reprimanded him for refusing to work and denied him allowances, the report said.

    The boy has been handed over to a juvenile court that will decide whether to file charges

    some people are mental lol

    its a sad story - fandad deserved it -

    poor son was harmless -

    cant point the finger of guilt entirely at andyfan (just assuming his name was andy)

    it is a sad story but i was waiting for all the pzztakes to be posted - laugh in the face of adversity - or take the hand of fate

    Not saying that it's a good idea to chop someone's hands off (?!?) but agree with above, years of physical abuse could drive someone to do anything so I do think the dad got what he deserved - ironic though that will now be the son that goes to jail, which he does deserve to, but I bet the dad doesn't. Makes you appreciate your own 'normal' family when you read something like this.

    more on this story contradicts the above somewhat.

    According to the ]Earth Times a police officer has confirmed that the teenager cut through his father's left wrist and right elbow because he was angry at having been told to find a job to support himself whilst he studied at night school. And the officer provided yet more details of the incident when he said:
    [INDENT]The boy, with the help of his teenage friend, first hit the victim's head with a baseball club four times when he was sound asleep in his room Monday night. When the father was awakened by pain and tried to resist the attack, the son assaulted him with a long knife, causing more than 10 cuts on the father's body [/INDENT]

    right ELBOW has to be even harder than a hand...

    I'm imagining a machete rather than a potato peeler was involved lol

    You'd have to be quite handy with a knife, or you'd make a bad fist of it. Police have said they've interviewed the father but so far he's stumped as to the reason why, can't grasp the situation although he has held out his hands to disciplining the boy.

    This hasn;t got anything to do with the digital switch over has it?
