The Baby Bounce video

This video I'm about to post breaks my heart and infuriates me, all at the same time. Have you heard about the sixteen year old boy who posted a video on youtube that shows him "making a baby fly"? It's heartwrenching to watch. He places an eight month old baby, who was in his care, on an inflatable pillow and then pushes weight down on the pillow that catapults the child a few feet away. He does this several times, and right next to a brick fireplace!!

I am happy to say that one of his teachers saw the video and reported him! Now he has been arrested and charged with Cruelty To A Child in both the 1st and 3rd degree. He is being held in a detention center. Luckily (and amazingly) the child wasn't injured.

What do you think the appropriate punishment would be for the teen? Watch the video and let us know.

I don't know what his sentence should be, but I think he should have to visit a children's hospital and see what happens to child with head trauma. Also, they should make him take some kind of child care class.

I think he should go to jail and get fucked up in there!

maybe we could bounce him on his head and knock some sense into him!
The video no longer plays - which is ok - I'm not sure I really could have watched it -

having to "volunteer" in a childrens ward especally for head trauma patients for at least a year - might begin to be enough -

I'm glad to know the child he bounced around is ok - but that is just so sad that this 16 yr-old thought it would be ok to do this!
