Teens Duct Tape Child To A Wall

Gawker - Two teenagers were sentenced to jail after duct-taping a 22-month-old child to the wall. The pictures—here with the child’s face obscured—show him stuck to the wall at uncomfortable angles and with tape directly on his bare skin.

The mother, Jayla Hamm, 18, was sentence to 10 days in jail and two years’ probation, while her boyfriend, 19-year-old Corde Honea, received a sentence of 36 to 60 months in prison—as well as separate sentences for burglary and possession of a firearm.

Besides taping the kid, Hamm and Honea taped his favorite sippy cup to the wall just out of his reach. They also appear to have taped his fists closed. The police say they were high; either way, their expressions in the photos don’t reflect people who quite understand that two-year-olds are not toys. (The boy’s expression, which you can’t see, was described by the prosecuting attorney as “terrified.”)

The abuse came to light when Hamm—”momma hamm” on MySpace, where her mood is “depressed” (I’ll bet)—showed the photos to a friend, who had the good sense to tell police. The kid will stay with his mother under state supervision.

Is this kid serious? He’s almost 2 years old. He should be able to flex and bust out of there. Regardless, I don’t see the problem here. It’s obvious they were just protecting him from the harmful UV rays outside. Did you see how white his skin is? I can’t even see his eyes. His face is like a cancer tractor beam.

PS – Was anyone else not surprised to see the boyfriend wearing full camo gear? Also, who the hell buys green duct tape?
