What compels people?
There are many ways to punish or admonish misbehaving children. On the same token there are many different ways to direct ones frustrations as well without resorting to the debilitating task of tying one”s own children with duct tape, hanging them upside down as then posting such pictures on their facebooks accounts. Then again there are also many ways the victims of these individual’s self defeating behavior will have to hopefully one day embrace in order to find the courage to face themselves and the outside world that their parents sought to humiliate them in….
dailymail.co.uk: A couple bound and gagged their young children with duct tape and posted the photos on Facebook, police said today.
The ‘terrified’ two-year-old toddler and 10-month-old baby were pictured online with their mouths, wrists and ankles taped up – and one was shown hanging upside down on an exercise machine.
Parents Frankie Almuina, 20, and Kayla Almuina, 19, were arrested in Coconino County, Arizona, after the sheriff was alerted to the pictures by an anonymous source.
The parents response? It was only a mere joke. Hmm interesting. A longing look at the pictures may have one tempted to throw up in disgust. Such are the type of jokes that this apparently maladjusted couple have inflicted on these two children.
But it gets worse. Bad jokes always get worse…
Around 12 similar photos, some of which were not posted online, were found at the family’s home, north of Williams, Arizona.
Commander Rex Gililand said: He said: ‘The photos showed the children in various stages of being bound, on their beds. Both were hung upside down, one from this exercise contraption.’
Gililand said: ‘I am shocked and horrified and I will tell you that in 30 years in law enforcement in Arizona this is one of the most horrendous things I have ever seen.
Hmm, that does come across as a damning indictment. But then again officer, ‘it was all just a joke! See I’m still laughing my head off even if I am crying violently inside. Isn’t this all too funny officer?
In 2010 teen mother Jayla Hamm was sentenced to 10 days in jail after duct taping her 22-month-old toddler to a wall in her home near Lincoln, Nebraska.
She and her boyfriend Corde Honea,19, taped his wrists, legs and body, taking pictures of the crying child and further taunted him by taping his favourite drinking cup just outside his reach.
One can only wonder what was done to these individuals when they were younger to grow up to inflict such abuse? Perhaps they too were tape ducted and cried violently, a plethora of love ‘just outside of their reach…’
If only people weren’t so hard to understand sometimes….
