Duct Taping Your Child Is Not "Playing Differently," It's Child Abuse
A disturbing image of a child with her mouth, hands and feet duct taped has been circulating the Internet today. Andre Dmcg Curry apparently posted the photo of his daughter with the message “This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back. ; )" included in the Facebook posting. As you can imagine, the Internet is outraged.
When the Internet is outraged about stupid parenting, I turn to Bad Breeders for an in-your-face, no-holds-barred look at the issue. Deena didn't disappoint and had this gem up today.
As of right now all Chicago Police will say is there is an investigation underway.
Curry’s friend Je’Vanna Cobbins said she believes Curry was just “playing around and "I wouldn’t call it child abuse.” Well Je’Vanna… I would and it is! She also said that “the image went a bit too far,” but that Curry was “being playful with his child” and “people play with their children differently.” Playful? Really? What is playful about binding and gagging your young child? Anyone, anyone, Bueller?
So what do you think? Is this playful or just straight up child abuse?
Note: We chose not to run the photo, but you can see it at the Bad Breeders' post.
