Dad Throws Toddler in Pool: Discipline or Child Abuse? [POLL/VIDEO]

A dad of a 23 month old girl threw her into a pool – reportedly to teach her a lesson after she dropped a puppy into a pool causing it to drown.

In wanting to teach the kid a lesson, he tosses her into a pool, only to be fetched out by his girlfriend.
As you can imagine, the dad has been brought up on charges of child abuse.

The law states, as this happened in Arizona, that discipline has to be reasonable and not carried out in anger.

While it might be hard to determine from the video, you be the judge. Was he acting reasonably?
Perhaps one picture (or in this case, video) equals a thousand words:

The NY Post reports that the child’s mother even painted more of a frightening picture:

(According to the child’s mother), “What people don’t know is also in the beginning of the video, he hoses her down with a water hose to kind of torture her that way.

Other reports indicate that McCarthy had been assaulted once inside the jail.

Is this anyway to teach a child the dangers of throwing a live animal into the water? Or for that matter, throwing anyone into the water who can’t swim.

Again, according to Arizona law, the discipline must be considered reasonable and not carried out in anger.

Do you consider this reasonable discipline or child abuse?
