IDK. Shoddy parenting and a lack of common sense or decency seems to be becoming the new norm. I once saw a video recorded once of a lady getting caught in a rain storm in a parking lot that picked up her 1 year old daughter and held her over her head like a newspaper to shield herself from the rain as she ran to their car.

It's ridiculous, and it's frankly terrifying to grow up and see the results of the train-wrecks these people are raising into "adult"-hood.

I had to read the article. I thought there would be some funny punchline to the joke. There wasn't.

She has no business having children based upon such behavior.

The kids are off the top of the car in the pic above but that that's incredibly dumb.  She could have taken 5 minutes and let enough air out of the pool to put in in the back of car.

Now she faces some serious charges....

From what I read in the article, and purely my thoughts as to what she did. I think she took the pool over to her friend's house to have it blown up. (They maybe had an air compressor to use yo blow it up with?) Then, she put it on the roof of her car to bring it back home, then realizing she had nothing to secure the pool to the roof of the car, she put her kids in it instead to hold it down.

Now, if that was what happened, not only does it show her to be a bad parent and irresponsible, but also shows she has poor planning skills in doing even simple tasks. And if so, why didn't the "friends" say something about what she was doing with her children and throw a fuss?

I believe thatís true from the article Axxe, but she could have partially inflated it in her SUV.  You can see the 3 inlets on the back of the pool. 
Then using her own hot air or a vacuum cleaner outlet, finish blowing it up.
Tough lessons there but stupid doesnít override safety.

Or she could have taken some rope or straps to secure the pool to the roof. But I agree. There are several ways she could have done the task without putting her children at risk because of her stupidity.

A stunt like this makes a person wonder at what other things she might have done that have put her children in danger because of her stupidity. She just happened to get caught this time, and fortunately no children were injured.

For under 20bux at Wally World in the same area as the cheap inflatable pools/toys they sell cheap lil inflators for said items.

Stupid people shouldnít breed.

Agree Shield and Axxe.
Iím willing to bet that she could have an inground pool built for what this one will cost her.

Yep Shield, I have been saying the same thing for years about stupid people breeding!  :bangheadonwall:

TXAZ, between the bail costs, legal fees, fines and probation fees if she is found guilty, she could have bought a really, really nice in-ground pool!

There a lot of different ways she could have done what she needed or wanted to do, without putting her children in danger. As Forrest Gump said, "Stupid is, as stupid does."
