Philip Struthers of Tampa Bay, Florida has a curious concept of good parenting skills. In the video below, Struthers is heard egging his 16-year-old son on in a fight with another teen. Struthers is now under arrest for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The deep voice on the video below has been identified as Struthers, giving such advice as “Start throwing punches, son!” and “Yes! Yes! Yes! Knock him out! Knock him out!” Then there is the lesson in good sportsmanship: “Slam his head on the ground.”
Whatever happened to a nice pinewood derby for father and son bonding.
We have seen similar parents with gladiatorial tendencies (here and here and here).

“And just like the rape joke, not funny–Not funny in the least.”
Opinions are like assholes – everyone’s got one.
I think that the fathers actions were not criminal. I believe the tipping point is if he had been holding a sign lettered
“WIN OR DON’T COME HOME!” That would have been a crime-funny- but criminal.
