I love how we tack on endangering the welfare of a child whenever possible. There was no danger to the children. The throw was accurate.

Oh no a fork was flung in a restaurant and on the other side of the dining room was a child, lets nail this guy for "endangering it's welfare"!

This law needs better guidelines in how it should be applied.
