Father Films Himself Beating Daughter And Shaving Her Head As Punishment For Downloading Snapchat

Alex Harrison, 33,  is seen on horrifying footage lashing his teenage daughter with a belt then shaving off her hair as punishment for downloading Snapchat.

Harrison proudly shared the video on Facebook and Snapchat before he was arrested on child cruelty charges shortly afterward.

He said: ‘She wanna be grown, she getting her a** whooped and her hair bald. School is for work, not f****** Snapchat. She ain’t got no business with no damn snap anyway. Stay tuned.’

The girl was identified as a 9th grader. Children in that grade are 14 or 15. Throughout the footage, she is wearing a Despicable Me t-shirt.

Ferriday Police Department refused to say whether or not the girl was still in the home or if she had been taken into the care of authorities.

A department spokesman refused to answer and said the footage was still under investigation.

Alex J. Harrison is seen in the above video standing over a teenage girl and whipping her repeatedly with a belt in shocking footage which he shared on social media boastfully to show how he disciplined the girl

The video, shot by someone else, cut to Harrison shouting at the girl as she wept into her hands, her hair already shaved off. In another frame, he is standing over her as she lay on the edge of a couch at his command.

He whipped her with a belt several times, while the child screamed, telling her to move her hands and feet which she used to try to block the blows. The beating lasted a minute-and-a-half and included 50 strikes.

Harrison can be heard shouting: ‘You want to be grown?’

He insulted the girl’s personal hygiene and said she did not know ‘how to change her tampon.’

When he was done whipping her repeatedly, he led her into another room, sat her down at a breakfast bar and shaved off her hair.

‘This is what it means to be grown,’ he said.
