Police, child services visit man who shot daughter's laptop

ALBEMARLE, NC (WIS) - The North Carolina man who became an instant celebrity after posting a video on YouTube shooting up his 15-year-old daughter's laptop, got a visit from the police department and child protective services last week.

Tommy Jordan posted the eight-minute video last Wednesday after finding posts that his daughter put on Facebook about her parents.

The ticked off father's video quickly went viral and already has nearly 23 million views on YouTube.

"Apparently both the local police and the department of social services are OK with it," he wrote on his Facebook timeline. "Yes they came. Of course they came. They received enough 'Oh my God he's going to kill his daughter' comments that they had to. I knew that the moment it went viral.. it was too late and it was inevitable."

"The kind lady from Child Protective Services looked all through the house, the yard, and found ours to be a healthy home," continued Jordan. "She saw the unloaded guns in their rack with the magazines removed and stored separately and safely. Funny thing: The case officer asked to see "the gun".... 'Umm, sir, may I see the actual..umm.. weapon used for the video?' She wasn't at all scared of me, but I could tell she doesn't like guns as a general."

Jordan says the child services agent interviewed his daughter for about an hour and a half.

"At the end of the day, no I'm not losing my kids, no one's in danger of being ripped from our home that I know of," wrote Jordan. "And I actually got to spend some time with the nice lady and learn some cool parenting tips that I didn't know."

Would he do it again? Yes, but with some small changes. First, he says he's get rid of the cigarette. He says his wife hates his habit.

He also says that he wouldn't call his daughter an "ass." "That was rude and a bad example of a parent using the 'Do as I say, not as I do' philosophy," wrote Jordan.

"That's it. I meant all the rest of it. My wife is OK with it. My daughter is OK with it. My Mother is OK with it. I'm OK with it. We're the only ones that matter."

The only way Jordan has communicated with the world after the viral spread of his video has been through his Facebook page.

In the days following his posting of the video, Jordan says he has fielded many requests for interviews and even had to have a friend throw somebody from 'Good Morning America' off of his property.

He maintains that he did not post the video for attention or to make money.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
