It's not a matter of law, it's a matter of respect. Of fundamental human decency. Of teaching your kids those same values. You don't touch other people's shit without permission. It doesn't matter how they got the shit. That's utterly irrelevant.
However What I'm trying to get at is... Her dad gave her this laptop (to be used for school work)
You're making baseless assumptions here. Also, it is not relevant.
and then she turns around and use it to post stuff to discredit her father on facebook? Inside of being thankful for all the stuff her dad has provided her, she literally biting the hand that feeds her?"
You're still assuming, without any evidence, that what she said was actually untrue. Now you'r even assuming she posted it on purpose to discredit her parents. You're making more and more stuff up about this.
Also, kids do not need to be thankful for parents. Not for good ones, and especially not for shitty ones.
As for the assumption that he hacked into her computer... here's an update about it. FYI he didn't hack her computer... in fact it's completely hilarious how he found out about her post. It was also very heartwarming towards the end... unless you want to believe that the father made up all those things and is currently shutting him in the basement and never see the daylight again.. then by all means.
Not a very believable story. But even if true, it changes little. He should not have read that post if it clearly was not meant for his eyes. It's like reading your daughter diary. You don't do that. Not even if she leaves it lying open on a kitchen table. (Ok. I admit, I'm setting a high standard here. So let's be clear, I don't think it's terrible to sometimes fall short of such a high standard. But it's still the standard you should aim at).
And if you do read something private that is not for you, you don't then tell the whole world about it!
My final conclusion was... respect goes both ways and clearly she wasn't respecting. It's also not fair, but when it comes to parent to child relationship... as a child you have to earn your respect and show you are a responsible adult in order to be treated as one.
You're wrong. In fact you couldn't be more wrong. Children deserve unconditional love and respect. Parents, on the other hand, have to earn it.
We've all gone thru that phase as we grow up when our parents slowly let us have more freedom because we have showed in their eyes that we are capable of handling them.
Freedom, yes. Respect, no.
I revise my earlier conclusion. The father is not batshit insane. He's a child. He has the emotional maturity of a 8 year old. Everything he writes is so amazingly childish.
