At the end of the article it says "..a 3-year-old was killed in France after his father put him in one and turned it on to punish him." ..to punish him? To fucking punish him? I think people like this should be put in to a washing machine and we can all laugh at you while you're freaking out from being tossed around like a ragdoll, drowning.
This is why I have always said that people should have to under go testing before being allowed to parent another being (along with taking a drivers test post 60 years old).
