This Is Not Funny


Teen Arrested After Posting "How To Make A Baby Fly" Child Abuse Video On You Tube

This is so sick I can't begin to describe my feelings about it. YouTube has given certain people an outlet for being as stupid and as comtemptable as they want to be. I've done some stupid things like any other person has when they were a kid. But these idiots prove the theory that there is no limit to human stupidity.



Desoto, Georgia
A 16-year-old Lee County teenager has been arrested and charged with felony cruelty to a child after posting a video on You Tube, demonstrating how to "Make A Baby Fly".

The video is no longer posted on You Tube, however a news report has been posted, showing excerpts of the video, the teen gleefully posted.

In that video, the teen places the child on an inflatable pillow and then launches it, head over feet, across the room - landing on the bare floor. The infant, who is 8-months-old, was left in the care of the teen who shot the video footage. The other teen involved was his friend and sent the baby flying across the room.

"It was terrible," said Lee County Sheriff, Harold Breeden. "I can't believe a 16-year-old kid would do something like this."

The Lee County Sheriff's department has arrested the teen (who cannot be named because of his age), and booked him into the RYDC, a Juvenile Detention Center. He has been charged with 1st-degree cruelty to children and 3rd-degree cruelty to children.

Police charged the teen with two counts because it considers the act, and then the encouragement of the act, two separate offenses. Police are also leaving the case open, pending a doctor's examination to determine if the child sustained any injuries from the teens behavior.

"It's not going to be funny when the judge gets through with him," said Sheriff Breeden. "He'll think twice next time you know, about how funny it was."

At first it was reported that the boy behind the camera could not be charged with a crime as there was no way to prove that the boy knew what the other teen was about to do. But now, rumors of a second video seem to be a fact and the boy behind the camera is facing the same charges as his friend.

Here's a YouTube video of that local news broadcast regarding the alleged second video.



After reading the story on ThaLunatic Daily I couldn't help but follow up with commentary of my own as feel that incident is one of the most despicable things I have ever seen. The level of disregard for life to me just boggles the mind. Do we blame this entirely on the children involved or do we also place some blame on their parents and society as well. Why if it weren't for tv shows like Jackass or the WWE we might not have things like this occur, unless parents actually used their brains and supervise and teach their children like they ought to. No word on whether the baby is ok, I'm hoping he is. I think all involved including the parents should be brought up on charges and the infants care should be followed up weekly by a social worker once sentencing has been carried out until he reaches adulthood.

We can poke fun at the idea of hurting someone, say for example pushing an old woman down a flight of stairs like in the movie 'Throw Mama from the Train' with Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal.

We can possibly even see the humor in being dysfunctional and abusive to a child, like when Homer Simpson strangles Bart for acting up.

Homer Choking Bart Simpson

And how about Dead Baby Jokes? Those can be pretty funny, if you can see the humor in them.

Take Andrew Long's post about Baby On Board signs at Shut Your Sprech Hole, a funny take on how other driver's pay attention or react to those signs people put in the back window of their suv's.

Now that's funny. Only because humor is about referring to things in a manner that suggest an element of being funny. A tendency of particular images, stories or situations that provoke laughter and provide amusement which is sometimes subjective. Humor is comprised of three components: wit, mirth, and laughter. And it hardly ever involves real physical violence. The Three Stooges would concur, and I'm sure the makers of Jackass; Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, etc. would agree as well (even though they go to some extremes on that show).

What isn't funny? Deliberately launching a baby across the room with intention to harm the child, video tape it and post it on YouTube. And then claiming you thought it was funny and didn't intend for the infant to get hurt. I got such a rise out of this I posted a comment on ThaLunatic's post;

OMG that is just sickening.
I hope they get the teen some MAJOR therapy and that the infant is ok.

to which some dimwit claiming to be a personal friend of one of the teens responded;

Well, I hope "deef end" is joking and if they aren't I hope they can pull their head outta their "rear end" long enough to wake up and smell the coffee. You can read my response to deef end and form your own opinions. Personally, I think if the 16-year-olds that did this did not want PUBLICITY then why did they post it on the internet?! They have less value than the energy expended to calculate their worth. If life was fair, I could only hope they'd do a triple summersault through the air, and disappear up their own assholes instead of making babies fly. It's still not funny, unless you are clinically insane or a complete fuckwit.

Hi ~Static~

I Am. Sick.

I can see that you have a fabulous sense of humor when it comes to comedy and further see that you understand where the boundaries lie.

You couldn't be more correct that this teen needs serious professional help and just the THOUGHT of what he did to this innocent baby is making my stomach turn enough to make me want to throw up.

Hopefully with the right intervention this young man will one day look back upon this crazy stunt with as much horror as we are feeling now.

I'm GLAD he was egocentric and stupid enough to have it publized so that it can be used him as evidence!!!!!

I will never understand the idiots that do stupid shit and put it on youtube,...I had a student video tape a teacher this year and put it on you tube, it was innocent he was just walking in the room and yelled at the kids to shut up but of course it was found and taken down...kids are stupid

I'd like to make that stupid ass little punk fly... and not by bouncin' him off an air pillow either!

BadThing1 - I am equally glad he posted it as now it is clear evidence that he can be charged with in a court of law. I only wish they had never done this in the first place, but then I believe everything happens for a reason, luckily the infant was not severely injured but I haven't heard about any other trauma the infant may have experienced at this point, at any rate there is obviously a lesson to be learned by these children.

Kat - Well, kids will be kids, they only know so much so in a sense they aren't really stupid they just don't know any better sometimes. the teens involved with the making of this video however should know better than to do something like that. Once again it comes down to adults, such as the parental figures in their lives who are responsible for teaching their kids and being good examples, enforcing rules and providing discipline to ensure a well balanced environment for kids to develop in. Apparently that was not the kind of environment these teens were exposed to. Stay tuned to 'Dysfunctional American Families' brought to you by Spiffy©.

RG - How would you then? Strap a homemade rocket to their backs; Send them bungee jumping over the Hoover Dam; tie them to the wing of a commercial airliner; set them on a see saw on one end and drop a boulder on the other?

Please give us DETAILS.... =)

Stupid things are part of life, they can make you laugh any time.

Threio - I am sure they will get theirs. A good banana beating perhaps?

Baccarat Forums - Is that why people laugh at you all the time?
