Police on Wednesday arrested a 39-year-old man for abusing his 11-year-old daughter in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture, after a local child and family center reported the case to police. Junichi Kawatake, 39, was arrested for allegedly abusing his daughter by punching her in the face on March 31. According to investigations, the daughter ran to a neighbor's house after being beaten. The neighbor took her to the center, which notified police.

The suspect has admitted to yelling at his daughter, but denied punching her. Police say they found bruises on the girl's hands and legs as well as her face.

A few months with Bubba in a tiny cell will sort this bully out.

So the bruises where from him kicking her?

WTF is going on with these crazy MFers, if you don't know how to correct your childs behavior maybe you should go to parenting class or something.

You know the sad thing is, and I did it to, is she is going to forgive him again, and again. How do you punch a 11 year old girl in the face, what level do you have to fall to to do that. Nothing is going to happen to him, especially in jail. He'll probably sit 10 to 20 days then be referred to some counseling, HA and there is the even sadder side of it. They will drag him and his daughter threw some skewed concept of family relations.

I always hid the bruises and never told anybody what they were from because I knew I would just get more. I really hope this isn't the case for this girl but as I type this I know this will never stop.

I wonder where the wife is, or if she is just afraid.

Well, if you want to drive a car you have to undertake training and pass a test. You are then given a provisional permit to drive until you are seen fit to operate a vehicle confidently. But, anybody can become a parent.Which is the more difficult of the two?

I hope the young girl has a great time growing up in school life and meets friends and stuff. The last thing she needs is to grow up alone and be singled out because unless she has a strong frame of mind she could be another teenager that remians quiet and without self confidence which could lead to her being another suicide statistic because of her demon father.

I think she will be OK. she did not hide in her room and cover her bruises like a coward. she went and sought safety and help. seems like she is made of tough stuff.
