True Facts about John Winchester

  • Leaving young children alone for ANY amount of time is legally child abuse.
  • Pretty sure leaving children alone with guns counts as child abuse too.
  • In 7x03 Sam says that John has a temper and “You don’t want to see him when he’s drinking.”
  • John told the police to let Dean rot in jail because he got caught stealing bread and peanut butter to feed Sam.
  • John disappeared without telling Dean where he was going, wouldn’t answer the phone and:
  • Didn’t pick up the phone when Sam’s girlfriend died.
  • Didn’t pick up the phone when Dean was dying.
  • When Azazel was possessing John, Dean literally realized it because John was acting proud of him.
  • John’s last living act was to put the responsibility for killing Sam on Dean’s shoulders, thus creating a no-win situation for the child he raised with no sense of self that did not include taking care of his little brother.
  • John blamed Dean for Sam running away and did SOMETHING to him that put a look of trauma and terror on the face of a man who doesn’t flinch at demons and monsters.
  • John put his mission of vengeance ahead of his children’s wellbeing, isolating them from friends, family, and the stability of staying in once place that children NEED.
  • John did not actually teach them what he knew, writing it all down in his journal instead and parceling out knowledge as it best suited him.
  • He put the responsibility for a small child on an only slightly smaller child. This is not only irresponsible but again crosses the line into child abuse.
