Nobody likes this on Facebook

The internet has done a lot to simplify our lives. We have information, shopping, and filthy, filthy pornography right at our fingertips. It's also made it much easier to identify the criminally stupid:
The Coconino County Sheriff's Office said Frankie Almuina, 20, and Kayla Almuina, 19, of Ash Fork, were arrested after someone saw the pictures of their children, ages 2 and 10 months, on Facebook and reported them to a child abuse hotline, The (Flagstaff) Arizona Daily Sun reported Friday.

Deputies said the pictures depicted the children with their wrists, ankles and mouths bound with duct tape, and one of the pictures depicted a child hung upside down from an exercise machine.
I simply don't understand the way this unfolded. First, these geniuses decided to duct tape their kids to some fitness equipment, which is not a bright idea. Then, they thought to photograph what they had done, creating evidence of the fact that they had taken that questionable first step. Finally, at least one of them figured it would be a good idea/funny/somehow the slightest bit okay to show these photographs to other people online.
