Not all parents are good at raising kids – we’ve all seen the news stories about abusive parents that end in tragedy. But occasionally, OCCASIONALLY…a story pops up about a parent that goes above and beyond for their kid; a story that will be remembered for all time in the hearts of dozens…maybe even a hundred or so.
It all started when Redditor DrRaveNinja’s daughter got into playing Minecraft:
So, my daughter, who was about 8 at the time, was REALLY into Minecraft (as most kids are these days). Also desperately wanting to join the Youtube/Let’s Play culture, I had installed some screen recording software that would let her make videos of the games she was playing so she could later upload them to Youtube.
One day while she’s playing he hears her quietly sniffling at the computer. Concerned like any good parent should be, DrRaveNinja asks her what’s wrong. She won’t give him an answer, so rather than prying he decides to keep an eye on her, only to discover what had happened moments later:
A few minutes later I discovered what was happening; someone was harassing not only her, but also all the other kids playing on whatever server she was on. This kid (we’ll call him Little Shithead, or LS) was saying shit about how he was going to rape my 8 year old daughter (she told him how old she was hoping he would stop), how he was going to hack into her IP and steal all her info, swearing profusely (remember, this is a game for kids), etc etc. By this time I had gotten my fiance involved, and she was also obviously quite upset at what a little shit this kid was being. We realized that our daughter had been recording the entire incident, and a plan began to form.
DrRaveNinja starts by googling the LS’s username, which yields several hits – one of which was a page where the kid was applying to be a mod for a server on Minecraft. From this page he was able to learn a slew of information on him (remember kids, the Internet is forever), including that he claimed to be 15, likes hockey, used to live in Toronto but now lives in Florida…but the BIG find, was that he listed his Skype contact information – literally just firstname.lastname.
From that point on THE GAME WAS AFOOT!
So I head over to Facebook and search for the name. Nothing. Hmmmm. On a hunch I searched for just the last name, while narrowing my results to only the state of Florida. Several dozen hits. Hmmm. So I have to start combing through each one, until I find what I was looking for: a middle aged man with the same last name, whose profile indicates he was born in Toronto and now lives in Florida. I FOUND YOUR DAD, YOU LITTLE SHIT.
So I sent him a message on Facebook, asking if he had a son named firstname who goes by his username on Minecraft. Dad confirmed I had the right guy. So my wife begins telling the dad everything that LS was saying to my daughter, and we sent him the recorded video as proof. Radio silence for a few days.
Then we got the message back: LS had his computer taken away from him for the entire summer, and had also been lying about his age (he was only 11, I think). His parents were fucking livid with him, and he surely hated the next few months of his life.
No one fucks with my daughter.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you exact professional revenge unto a piece of shit 11-year-old.
