December 21, 2011: Police in Chicago have arrested 21-year-old dad Andre Curry. He has been charged with aggravated domestic battery stemming from a photo he posted to his Facebook account, showing his 22-month-old daughter bound and gagged with tape. Though the photo was posted in July and has since been removed, the investigation into Curry, whose Facebook profile is private, did not begin until recently. Friends of Curry's apparently didn't think the photo was as amusing as he did; one friend commented with, "U goin to jail." A woman whose sister once dated Curry told The Smoking Gun that the photo does not show child abuse, and that Curry was "being playful with his child." Once the photo began to circulate online, it generated significant outrage and prompted several calls to police.
