He put her kids in a dryer?...

FoxNews reports that "Dad Who Burned Kids in Dryer: Thought They Could Have a Good Time Without Money
A Hutchinson [Kansas] man is on trial this week on charges he put his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son in a hot clothes dryer.
In a videotaped interview with detectives shown in court Wednesday, Aron Pritchard said he put the children in the dryer to show them they could have a good time without much money. An hour later, the dryer had become hot and the boy had second-degree burns.
Pritchard told the detective that he didn't mean for the boy to get hurt.
Jurors also heard from a pediatrician who testified that the burns, combined with prior injuries including a twice-broken clavicle, could indicate an abusive environment.
Pritchard is charged with aggravated child endangerment and child abuse in the Nov. 28, 2006, incident."

That is one crazy bastard.


OK, so he put the kids in a HOT clothes dryer and was surprised when one of them got burned?! That guy's a total idiot. Thank goodness those poor children didn't suffocate to death!
