Father-son argument in Kalihi ends with hospitalization, arrest

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:22 a.m. HST, Aug 23, 2013

An argument between a father and his 12-year-old son at a Kalihi public housing complex turned violent with the father now facing a criminal assault charge.

Police said the two were arguing at 2:30 p.m. at The Towers at Kuhio Park, formerly known as Kuhio Park Terrace, when the 38-year-old father allegedly struck his preteen son, sending him to the hospital for treatment.

The police report did not specify the type of injuries the youth suffered or what the father hit him with.

The father was arrested at the public housing complex and faces a second-degree assault charge.

Hmm. I would have thought this would have generated an abuse of family member charge, not merely an assault one.

An "argument" with a 12-year old? Betcha he was trying to discipline the child (we know it as as scolding). These days, parents can't EVEN discipline their child and they grow up to become problem adults. But who gets blamed? YEP THE PARENTS because society says that good old fashioned discipline is NOT allowed. OMG.

12 yr old must have been way out of line talking back to the father, kids now days got no respect, but then again respect is earned by example. sending your kid to the hospital is a bit much

The child is a pre-teen, less than 13 years old, and had to be taken to a hospital because of injuries from his dad. That's a really crappy "dad," who should be beaten mercilessly every time he heals from the previous beating. You don't hit women, and you don't hit kids. Period.
