Come on, everyone knows it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to get permission.

Duct tape works better

Did they at least use a coaster?

My mom gave me a Snickers bar and I pulled the car home!

They put her on a leash. I've seen plenty of toddlers on leashes out in public. I think their parents are idiots but it isn't illegal.

They must have been out of duct tape.

...whereas the proper time to use "alright" is just before removing yourself from the gene pool.

What's an "alright"?

Should have used Benadryl.

The time to ask the neighbours is before you decide to have a kid!

There is never a time to speak to neighbors.

They make child harnesses for a reason. A GOOD reason.

What on earth is wrong with baby reins? Lets the kid run around, stops the kid getting into danger.

It is similar but not the same. Toddler on a leash in public has adult supervision and are generally older than 2. Putting a "leash" on a 2 years old and leaving her without supervision is like letting her play by the pool without supervision.

rtfa. The child was tied to a table and left alone in the basement in her own filth. Foolish and dangerous, not to mention just plain cruel. Of course it's illegal.

*shrug* my neighbor used to hook a harness on her kid to the clothes drying line similar to a runner for a dog. While odd, I never found anything wrong with it.

Of course, the system had little to no chance of the child strangling themself with the rope, unlike the person in the article.. *shrug*.

Sounds like there may have been other factors involved.

I wouldn't do it myself, but I have a hard time making sense at drawing the line at tying up your kids. if there is injury, certainly, prosecute away. if it ain't your kid, ditto.
but who says little kids need to have personal autonomy over any and all physical actions 24-7. you can lock them in their room. withold their dinner. you can smack them with a belt. some juvie guard with a GED acting in the name of the state can put them in a straight jacket and a spit bag indefinitely. you can forcefully medicate them. cut off part of their cock. pierce theirs nose and eyebrows. probably tattoo them if you are from the right culture. ditto probably for removing their clithood. can refuse to give them lifesaving medical intervention. can abort them up until 9 months of age. but you can't hog tie one that is out of control for a few hours?
