  1. Ive never heard of this family but damn they need learn how to pull a prank and when to stop a waterboarding prank thats going too far

  2. I thought each count is for each occurrence and each twisted video would potentially be $5000 and/or 5 years each.

  3. There's a very fine line between pranks and just being stupid/harmful. Finding that line is difficult and crossing it, intentionally or not, can really screw you over.

  4. Those parents should be told the charges were dropped… Then told that the charges being dropped was just a joke.

  5. Good. Those poor kids were tortured online their "parents." I hope those two rot in the hole they crawled out from

  6. I have 0 pity for those ass holes they abused their children and did it all for a little money I hope they burn in hell

  7. Holy crap yes. Maybe the world can drag itself out of the pit we've dug into. These parents are jokes, and I hope their punchline isn't for 10 years.

  8. Reminds me of a book my school had us read called "It" or "Thing" or something like that about a child and his abusive mother.

  9. "Funny" how they talk down about prank videos on youtube, and at the same time RT has their share of prank videos.

  10. they were abusing their children for money. if they were posting these vids on the deep web then nobody would even consider anything other than the maximum. but because they post it on youtube and go "its just a prank lol" they get a plea deal? they need to spend the next decade behind bars.

  11. Please don't show Ben who Jake Paul is, there is little purity left in this world, let's preserve a bit of each other.

  12. The "it was all scripted" argument doesn't make anything they did any better. In most cases it makes it worse! "hey I know you're only 5 but im going to shove your head into a bookshelf to make you cry on video alright?"

    Those parents are monsters.

  13. Thank heavens, scripted or not, I HOPE they get what they deserve, jail time is what they need, along with some counseling. They don't have any sense, you don't abuse kids, ever.

  14. So glad they took the boy away from them. If your "jokes" make your children cry and beg you to stop and end up with bloody noses you don't deserve to have the children in the first place.

  15. Let them fry… people like them don't deserve freedom.. consider all the younger people who saw their videos then suddenly think it's acceptable.. a joke is one think.. but a joke does not cause harm to others physically or not.. they nothing more than adults with serious mental health issues, who abuse children for their own amusement and profit..

  16. Frankly, I understand how this would happen, but you are still absolutely responsible for any damage those pranks do. And if that damage includes child neglect or abuse, or anything else criminal, you are absolutely responsible.

  17. Never heard of them. Whoever they are, they deserve to be in prison based on it solely being one of these "prank" channels.

  18. I would love them to face an execution and when there are 3 seconds to go, the prison staff just yell; "it was just a prank!", And then fake it. Well their life is forfeited anyway.

  19. The scary thing is that the DaddyOFive channel currently has 737k subscribers?? And who knows how many more before they got reported.
    Really makes it looks like there's a "market" out there for traumatizing little kids…

  20. If only DaddyOFive were black, they would have their child abuse ignored and escape prison.

  21. That what's wrong with world morons like this can live, mate, have kids and spread theyrs shity seed. Natural selection needs come back or we'll get dumber and dumber.. Sorry for my English..

  22. You know, I appreciate the update, but I thought the Know was about video games. What does this have to do with video games?

  23. I have seen some jackass pretending to throw bags with bombs inside while shouting the "Allah Akbar" thinking it was funny a while ago these days It would get you shoot real or not.

  24. uggh Its a jon episode. pass.

    Wish they would realize that when people say this, it is not necessarily everyone is perving for Michalea or Ashley. Adam is good, Gus is OK, even the new guy is adequate. Its just Jon is like nails on a chalkboard annoying.

    Might be a good guy face to face. He might be talented behind the scenes, He has negative screen presence. So keep him off camera.

  25. A prank is a joke in which an activity is done. A joke inconsequential amusing event or phrase. Meaning the difference between abuse/harassment and a joke/prank is that no long or short term suffering is caused. A condom attached to a rubber band full of flower and water designed to snap on your roommates face when they open your door is a prank. Telling your kids to hit each other is instigating assault.

  26. Is this what pranksters is doing nowadays? Waterboarding your kids? Word?

    Some people just shouldn't have kids. We dont need your parenting skills corrupting children to do the same thing.

  27. I can't be more happy to hear that DO5 might be facing jail time. You can't treat your children like that and not face conquinces.

  28. I think they need jail time. I have kids. That's freaking child abuse. Don't let em off with a fine. If they think that Lil of their kids, their kids need to be takin away and givin a home where their loved. Black and white.

  29. So it's ok when a child does it to a parent? Jackass Bam Margera literally could have given his parents a heart attack from what he did to them. But that's ok right? Is it an age thing this is about? Kids are ruthless but that's ok people right 🤔

  30. Jon Risinger and Ben Ernst don't work well together, because Jon talks loud, and then you can barely hear Ben.
    If you turn up the volume to hear Ben, then Jon is way too loud.

    Too much difference in the volume of their voices.

  31. "What's on the internet is there forever" that's why people don't know about it. Everyday there's new stuff coming to stay forever on the internet.

  32. It's a shame Phil Defranco got all the credit, 4chan had a lot to do with it all, I know because I was there. There we're 30 of us in a discord channel, dubbed the Original 30 after it blew up to about 250 people who spent 2-3 hours tracking all the info we could find on them.

    Here is the Phone call we recorded to one of the local news channel.

  33. And they tried to hide all the videos, but they forgot an important rule of the Internet…
    there are archives all over the net.

  34. The Daddyofive parents Mike & Heather are bullies and criminals and they totally deserve to go to prison for the horrible crap they did to those poor children.

  35. These people disgrace the name Martin. They have no relation to me, but I still feel I should plead that you don't think of these people when you think of the name Martin.
