(Newser) – An apparent act of vigilante justice is going viral on YouTube and sparking a debate over the proper punishment for statutory rape, Huffington Post reports. In the video, a supposed dad spanks the adult boyfriend of his young daughter for having had sex with her. "You got lucky, James," the dad says. "You could have had rape charges or an ass-kicking." Being spanked, the victim cries, "Enough dude! I ain't even gonna be able to sit, dude!" Says the dad: "Well, that's what Chelsea got." Some YouTube commenters say the punishment was just, while others argue the father should still go to police.

Well, Obama, Holder or Congress don't trust American justice, why should this dad trust it? Just consider this his Guantanamo-method - or his Illegal-murder-in-Pakistan method. (hint to the slow: I mean all the above are BA-AD).

Fifteen years old is too old to be spanked, especially by your father---where are his boundaries? I would have been terrified if my daughter was dating a 27 year old man, and it would have IMMEDIATELY stopped, even if I had to ship her to grandma's for a year. And I would have seriously considered going to the police to see if he had other complaints lodged against him.

Umm.. Does NO ONE else find this to be a glaringly, poorly acted, poorly scripted FAAAAAAKE?
