From time to time I see on the news people doing bizarre things. Then try to think why someone would do those things...

...and I have come to the conclusion that us "normal" people are not like that, and therefore will never be able to understand these things, try as we might.

But that is a good thing we don't understand.

Anyway here again is something else I can't understand. Never will.

This is right up there with the guy who tied up his toddler and posted the pics on Facebook. Gee...did they think the washer was a ride? Or was the kid really dirty? Maybe these people are homeless...at least go to the Dog Wash....

The guy was probably trying to kill the child and make it seem like an accident.

Saw this video on the news, the lady was the child's babysitter and her boyfriend. They spoke to the mom and she didn't even know about this until it aired. She isn't pressing charges just fired the sitter. She doesn't know who the male is. The worker had to unplug the whole machine to get the child out.

A very foolish mistake...something that I doubt either adult would EVER do again....I don't think the man realized the door would lock...I think it scared the s### right out of them.....I also think lots of people do silly and dangerous things with their kids....I see a lot of it....luckily most times it never turns bad like this did.
