It may be a bit early in 2015 to be handing out the Parents of the Year Award, but a man and woman in Indiana are certainly contenders: Police say they found a cellphone video featuring Michael Barnes, 19, and Toni Wilson, 22, encouraging a 1-year-old baby girl to place a .40-caliber handgun in her mouth and say "pow." "The video also shows the child placing the muzzle of the gun in [her] mouth," police say in a statement (amended here).

Some people are idiots.

Almost makes me wish they required a test to have children, almost.

Nice, guy was wanted for armed robbery as well.

Three more kids into the system, hopefully they got them away and keep them away and they get a chance to live life.

Some people should be sterilized. Sorry, these people shouldn't be allowed to raise a dog, let alone a child.

She is 22 with 3 kids, the 12 month old by another man and 1 month old twins by this 19 year old guy.

I sincerely hope the courts never return these children to their mother.

Nothing can be done to prevent both of them from having more children together or with other partners.

I would have no problem with an amendment that forced sterilization of people like this.

Personally, I would have a major problem with forced sterilization for any reason.

Nope...force it....and here is why, is this isolated? Maybe to an extent?

Why? The only downside is they don't get to have any more kids.

Since they're already not going to raise the kids how would they even know the difference?

However, I'm sure we agree upon the consitutional ramifications.

So instead, I think they should offer free vasectomies and throw in some football tix and $1000.
