Father of the Year, so soon in the New Year?

Okay, so Lam Luong and his wife get into an argument.  Things are going well, so Lam Luong decides to toss his four children off a bridge for spite.

Oh; the bridge was 80 feet above some murky water … rescue officials are still searching for bodies.

Here is a photo of the shit-ass:

Hot Lard is starting a year long list of Of The Year nominees.  Here is our first nomination, Lam Luong.  At the end of the year, we’ll have a vote for how many times over the person or persons shall be sent into damnation.

Here is the link to the article over at CNN.com.

In the event the article goes away, here it is:

BAYOU LA BATRE, Alabama (AP) — A man angered after a dispute with his wife confessed to tossing his four young children off a bridge, authorities said Wednesday as they searched murky waters for the bodies.

Lam Luong, 37, told authorities that he drove to the Dauphin Island bridge and dropped the children from a span that reaches 80 feet in places, said Detective Scott Rivera.

Missing and presumed dead were 4-month-old Danny Luong; 1-year-old Lindsey Luong; 2-year-old Hannah Luong; and 3-year-old Ryan Phan. Phan is not the man’s biological child, but Luong raised him from infancy, authorities said.

Luong is charged with four counts of capital murder.

Luong came to coastal Alabama from Vietnam in 1984 and worked in the commercial fishing industry as a shrimper, Police Chief John Joyner and a relative said. He had argued with his wife, Ngoc Phan, before taking the children, he said.

At least three boats were being used in the search, and the Coast Guard was sending another boat and a helicopter, Riva said.

Joyner said he feared the search of the Intracoastal Waterway below the bridge would be hampered by bad weather and choppy waters. The bridge extends from the mainland to Dauphin Island, which lies between the waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.

“It’s been a nightmare,” said Riva.

The couple lived with Phan’s mother at Bayou La Batre, a fishing village with a large Southeast Asian community. Phan’s brother-in-law Kam Phengsisomboun, who is from Thailand, said the couple moved back to the area from Hinesville, Georgia, only a couple of weeks ago.

They argued Sunday night and again Monday, he said. Luong left the home with two of the children, then later came back for the other two, he said.

The family initially feared the children had been traded to support a drug habit, Phengsisomboun said. Luong had a crack cocaine habit and had spent an insurance settlement from an automobile accident rapidly, he said, and authorities confirmed Luong had a history of drug offenses.

Luong reported the children missing Monday, and told police that a woman who had the children failed to return them, authorities said. Phengsisomboun said he was later told by investigators that a witness had seen someone throw a bundle from the bridge and then saw three children in a nearby car.

Phan, 23, was in seclusion Wednesday morning at her mother’s brick home, the front porch cluttered with children’s shoes.

Clues to who you should beat up

If you come across a person who looks like this, feel free to kick their ass.

Honestly, what bet did this guy lose?  What truth could possibly worse than this dare?  Or is it that he enjoys such behavior?

I think we need Dr. Phil to investigate.
