Free-Range Kids

Carjacker Realizes Kid Was Left in Car, Returns to Parking Lot To Berate Mom

The mom got the kid back, but not the car.

|

Yet another guy screamed at a mom for letting her kid wait in the car while she ran into the store to get a gallon of milk—but with a twist: He was a carjacker who had just stolen her car.

The second he noticed the kid, he sped back to the parking lot, and yelled at the mom to take the boy out. She did, and then the carjacker drove off again.

More proof that almost no one wants to steal a child—not even a criminal.

This incident unfolded in Beaverton, Oregon, on January 16, according to The Oregonian. It was about 9 a.m., and the mom needed milk and meat. She put her four-year-old in the back seat, buckled him into his booster seat, and headed to the grocery store. She made sure to park right near the door and ran inside, leaving the car running and unlocked.

She was never more than 15 feet from the car, according to police spokesman Matt Henderson. Nor did she dawdle. She was in the store very briefly, a clerk at the store attested.

But the carjacker saw her walk in, saw the car running, jumped in, and raced away. Realizing just moments later that there was a kid in the backseat, he did a U-turn in the parking lot next to the market and came straight back, whereupon he ordered the mom to remove her son.

The thief then drove off again, and if you happen to see a 2013 silver Honda Pilot—license plate 357 GLV—please call the Beaverton police to have him arrested.

(Do not call them to arrest the mom.)

While it is clearly dumb to leave keys—and kids—in an unlocked, running car, I am thrilled that the cops did not charge this lady with a crime. The carjacker is the criminal here, and the mom is the victim. Let's keep that straight.

Parents should be allowed to let their kids wait in the car during brief errands. To outlaw brief car-waits because once in a blue moon something this crazy happens is the equivalent of outlawing chandeliers, because once a while one crashes down on someone's head.

Naturally it also makes sense to turn off the engine and take the keys. But being rushed and trusting the odds is not a crime. If something turns out fine 99.99 percent of the time, it shouldn't be a crime. If we prohibited everything that was even slightly dangerous, we would have to make it illegal to drive kids anywhere: Many more kids die as passengers in moving cars.

If you happen to see a mom who has left the keys and kid in the car, be a Good Samaritan and either stand there a few minutes until she comes back, or look for her in the store. Resist the temptation to jump in and gun it.

  1. One of my libertopia fantasies is that a law which is not enforced consistently is void. That includes most traffic tickets, most drug “crimes”, prostitution, etc — and of course, complaints about parents leaving kids safely in cars. Whether it should cover doofuses like this who leave their car running and unlocked … well, yes, it should disallow busting her for this. But her insurance company should not cover this; she didn’t take the simplest steps to keep her car safe.

    2. In my libertopia fantasy, humans will not have the mental ability to lie, cheat, or steal. So why did she do anything wrong by leaving her car running and unlocked?

      1. This isn’t Libertopia?

      2. The insurance company is a private entity and I have no problem with them deciding her actions contributed to the theft.

    4. The legalese you’re looking for is “desuetude,” btw.

      1. Not exactly. That means laws which haven’t been enforced in a long long time. I mean laws which are enforced inconsistently, as with most traffic laws, which probably only hit 1 out of ten thousand speeders, for instance.

  2. So they are incapable of arresting people in Oregon.

    Why is the left coast so ridiculous? Democrats are in charge.

    1. Go ye and perform a citizen’s arrest of the carjacker, PLEASE! I, for one, would applaud ye heartily!

      1. What are you talking about SQRLSY — You think “Healthcare Labor for all” is any better than “Your car for Him”? Now, now; come clean… You want Nazi legislation to arrest mommy and throw the kid under all-enlightening and know-it-all hands of Nazi legislation. The brilliant ‘visionary solutions’ that will cleanz the world of any problem that might occur.

        Is that not what you’ve been consistently fighting for here?

        1. I see! So you’re saying that the Intergalactic Sub-Smegmonic Boogoidian-Strawmen-Hybrids have deployed booger-beams (Those unspeakable BASTARDS) and have hijacked your tinfoil hat! You have my sympathies, but no more… I have no good advice for you, sorry! Other victims of the Intergalactic Sub-Smegmonic Boogoidian-Strawmen-Hybrids that I have known? They all ended up on Skid Row, and I could NOT help them!

          1. Taking away a persons liberty and/or justice is NOT helping them.
            And supporting the STEALING from people is NOT helping them.

            1. Lusting after ever better, better, and “better” (more deceptive) LIES, in order to gain and retain POWER AT ALL COSTS is NOT helping anyone in the long run!

              Der TrumpfenFuhrer ***IS*** responsible for agitating for democracy to be replaced by mobocracy!

              https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/24/politics/trump-election-warnings-leaving-office/index.html
              A list of the times Trump has said he won’t accept the election results or leave office if he loses

              Essential heart and core of the LIE by Trump: “ANY election results not confirming MEEE as Your Emperor, MUST be fraudulent!”
              September 13 rally: “The Democrats are trying to rig this election because that’s the only way they’re going to win,” he said.
              Trump’s constant re-telling and supporting the Big Lie (any election not electing Trump is “stolen”) set up the environment for this (insurrection riot) to happen. He shares the blame. Boys will be boys? Insurrectionists will be insurrectionists, trumpanzees gone apeshit will be trumpanzees gone apeshit, so let’s forgive and forget? Poor Trump was misunderstood? Does that sound good and right and true?

              It really should immediately make us think of Krystallnacht. Hitler and the NAZIs set up for this by constantly blaming Jews for all things bad. Jew-haters will be Jew-haters, so let’s forgive and forget? Poor Hitler was misunderstood? Does that sound good and right and true?

              1. WHAT ‘Power’?????????????? The ‘Power’ to DE-REGULATE????
                What ‘Insurrection’??? 10-unarmed people breaking a door? Is Trump one of those 10? Did not trump present to the world evidence of fraud – that gigantic 90% favor poking out like a sore thumb of the normal count????

                What’s funny is you have 1-single-topic that is completely questionable, infers your own theology on why 10-unarmed people broke a door while completely dismissing the ENTIRE platform of the Democratic National Socialists Party and their constantly blame of 10-unarmed individuals as a threat to the nation.

                PROJECTION at it’s finest.

                1. September 13 rally: “The Democrats are trying to rig this election because that’s the only way they’re going to win,” he said.

                  Trump might as well say “Democrat votes don’t count. They are all invalid. If you’re not gonna vote for MEEEE, don’t even bother to vote.”

                  You can’t defend it, because it is indefensible, plain and simple! It is the basis of a POWER GRAB! You trumpanzees support a 1-party “R” state, in the face of endless history showing that multi-party states, polycentric states, work MUCH better than 1-party dictatorshits! Name me ONE, 1-party dictatorshit, ye trumpanzee ye, which worked well for the long run? Are you ready to move to North Korea yet?

                  1. Still stuck on the same unrelated topic I see; and now going for “might as well say”… but he didn’t (delusion of reality). And starting January 6th we’ll have the 1-party Democratic National Socialists (synonym Nazism) Party in control. And here you are still pretending 1-party control is of the ‘R’ party concern (another delusion of reality). When you decide to join reality; let me know.

                    1. So you can NOT name me ONE, 1-party dictatorshit, ye trumpanzee ye, which worked well for the long run? Are you ready to move to North Korea yet?

                      When you are ready to accept wisdom, be it 5 or 20 or (seemingly most likely) 342 lifetimes from now, you could think about the below:

                      For all ideological hard-core warmongers everywhere…

                      So ye lust after the utter, eternal destruction of the “D” team, and the eternal victory of the “R” team? (The inverse kind of ideological idiot exists also, but not so much, on these pages).

                      “R” team likes to demonize “D” team? Biden is going to outlaw the internal combustion engine, tomorrow, to “Make American Green Again”? The NEW MAGA? Bullshit, demonizers!

                      “D” team likes to say that the next “R” POTUS (Alex Jones maybe?) will outlaw ALL abortion, and birth control? And turn ALL women into enslaved baby-making machines, because every sperm is sacred? Bullshit, demonizers!

                      All is for The Hive… The Tribe-Nation… Or, All is for the Individual, and you may NOT (of your own supposed “free will”) join a VOLUNTARY commune?! There can be NO compromise, traitors!!!

                      The males must UTTERLY DEFEAT the females, who must NEVER speak again!

                      Yin must smash Yang, till Yang exists no more!

                      Creation must smash destruction! NO eggs may be broken, for making omelets!

                      Life must rule over death, and NO ONE may die, to make room for the new living! No matter HOW old and decrepit they get! YOU MAY NOT DIE!!!

                      Do you ideological idiots NOT see that “R” v/s “D” falls into the same category? You would destroy it ALL (multi-party democracy, “balance”) in the name of your POWER PIG FANTASIES!!!

                      The ONLY way that ye will get your “ultimate victory” is in the DEATH OF IT ALL!!! The new POTUS, Alex Jones, will declare Nuclear War for the Ultimate Victory… And yin and yang, male and female, “D” and “R”, individual v/s tribe… they all ARE NO MORE!!!

                      Are you HAPPY now, ideological idiots and power-lusters?!!?

                    2. Every stable nation is a Single entity controlled system; The party of its national government dumb-ass. You know what a country looks like with 2-Parties in control of which neither has standing? It’s called Iraq or a hundred other countries in endless civil war who fight endlessly with each other using guns and bombs.

                      The U.S. Constitution is SUPPOSE to be that ‘single’ entity control system. It’s NOT a Democratic National Socialist Federal Regime. The ‘D’ party at this point is the ENEMY of the USA and that 2nd entity trying to obtain POWER over the very definition of the USA and it’s the WHOLE reason there’s so much anger.

                      Yet you want to play some stupid game about what does ‘Party’ mean. Does this party align here or there? How much do two crowds have to differ to be considered a separate ‘Party’. If Libertarians conquer the Democratic National Socialists is that good or bad in your playground of imagination?

                    3. But here is the real issue… You live in a world where IDENTITY is everything. It’s the exact same politics as the left where the color of a persons skin, their sex, their wealth is EVERYTHING MORE than the actual person themselves. It’s the same politics of Hitler. It didn’t matter if a person was good or evil if they had policies that worked or didn’t ALL THAT MATTERED WAS IF THEY WERE JEW…..

                      You want to start babbling about 2-Identities being more evil than the policy itself (the thing that matters) just as [WE] mobs do. Perhaps I do this quite a bit too; but for me it’s not entirely about the Party. A Democrat in Hawaii wrote a repeal for the Patriot Act just recently. I applaud that policy even if it came from a Democrat. Can you do the same?

                    4. Fascist STILL can NOT name me ONE, 1-party dictatorshit, which worked in the long run! Gee, I wonder why THAT is?

                      Does the Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot want to OUTLAW all USA political parties other than the “R” Party? By all the invective and wild-ass hyperbole, not to mention LIES, it sure seems that way!

                    5. “1-party dictatorshit, which worked in the long run”…

                      Your 1-party dictatorship example… The USA; being dictated entirely and completely by the U.S. Constitution for 200-YEARS. The most SUCCESSFUL country ever seen……………………..

                      UNTIL Democratic National Socialists decided a 1-Party dictation was a bad thing and created [WE] mobs of identity “empowered” politics and pretended the U.S. Constitution was a waste of time.

                    6. Fascist STILL can NOT name me ONE, 1-party dictatorshit, which worked in the long run! Gee, I wonder why THAT is?

                      Well SQRLSY, you got what you wanted, a 1 party dictatorshit... of democrats. Democrats are the party of regulations, taxes, and government intrusion into everything in your life. Hope it pans out the way you hoped.

                  2. I support policies that maximize individual freedoms, so long as they don’t hurt the freedoms of others… REGARDLESS of where the policy comes from! D, R, L, machs nix!

                    What I do NOT support, is the way of The Trump, and trumpanzees, which is power-grabbing by telling the Big Lie, over and over and over again! “R” party needs to be thoroughly spanked at the polls some more, till they come around!

                  3. I find it utterly baffling you can use the word Trump and “maximize individual freedoms” as if they were contrary…

                    What policy exactly did Trump pass/push for that DIDN’T maximize individual freedom? He pushed for massive De-Regulation, He pushed for tax cuts, He pushed for School Choice… WHERE, WHERE did Trump NOT maximize Individual Freedom???????

                    Maybe the “Big Lie” is the one you seem to be hanging onto that makes zero sense beyond a prejudice.

                    1. He pushed for disregarding ALL votes that were not for HIM and His Party! THAT is the BIGGEST offense right there! NO real political freedom under Trump, if Trump gets His Way!

                      Next biggest offenses were, taxing the shit out of me if I want to buy goods and services from those HORRIBLE ferriners! Protectionism instead of free trade, plain and simple!

                      AND scapegoating immigrants! If I want to hire, or socially interact with, an “illegal subhuman” on USA soil, Trump will throw their babies in wire cages! WHERE is my freedom to pick and chose my friends and employees, on USA soil?

                    2. He pushed for FAIR and authentic elections and in your imaginary pathetic world you’ve painted a narrative that he wanted to disregard the legal and authentic votes. Do you not see you are really trying to CANCEL the REAL authenticity of elections by IMAGINARY fiat? If you get your way (Ignorance) there will never be an authentic election EVER AGAIN!

                      So the best you can come up with is he didn’t give the ENTIRE WORLD ( foreigners ) maximum individual freedoms? Good grief that is pathetic. It’s not the USA’S JOB to give every person on the globe maximum individual freedom. But you’d probably fit right in with the war mongers who pretend it’s their job.

                      Do you think the fact that shipping on your “foreign” goods being subsidized by other taxpayers should play some factor into your “foreign tax”?? Do you think a government put in charge of national affairs shouldn’t tax their ‘job market’ or some other market instead?

                      As far as I can tell the only thing you have against President Trump is not allowing the USA to be invaded by a foreign country. You truly are a faithful ENEMY of the USA.

                      The USA doesn’t belong to your foreign friends just like they don’t belong in my house… Being the original tenants of property in question; YOU’RE TRESPASSING unless you’ve been invited!

                    3. Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot believes that the USA already is (and should be) a 1-party dictatorshit! That the USA HAS BEEN a 1-party dictatorshit for some 200 years!!! There is NO point in trying to persuade the Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot of ANYTHING! Almost ALL of the circuits of the Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot have gone kaput, big-time!

                    4. Oh that horrible dictator who wouldn’t let your friends live in our families car… The nerve to pretend nations have land boundaries and deny those foreign individuals *entitlement-to* willy-nilly claim something because they WANT it…. What a Dictatorbot kaput…. lol…. What are you 8?

                    5. Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot believes that Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot personifies (***IS*** The Sacred Will of The Collective Hive), and so, Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot gets to decide who SQRLSY One (or YOU, Dear Reader, to YOUR house) gets to invite… To MY house!

                      MY HOUSE does NOT belong to YOU, Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot, NOR to the Collective Hive! WHY am I paying real estate taxes on MY house, if it does NOT belong to me? WHEN is Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot going to pay MY taxes, if Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot is gonna take over MY house?

                    6. Did your home ownership papers grant your foreign friends citizenship in the USA? Your biased manipulation has no boundaries of logic I see.

                    7. Did the Native Americans ever invite the ancestors of Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot to come and live here? WHEN, oh WHEN is Model TJJ2000 Dictatorbot going to self-export back to North Korea?

                    8. Well you better tell your foreign friends to bring lots of guns and *earn* their new found land rights then just as we had to. I hope they’ll be kind enough to leave us some reservations to live on.

                      But you know as well as I know; you’re just blowing 1451-Smoke out your *ss to cover up your current state of failing theology. But it does further your base-belief that foreigners should invade and destroy the USA. The very theology that is the ENEMY of the USA.

                    9. AND scapegoating immigrants! If I want to hire, or socially interact with, an “illegal subhuman” on USA soil, Trump will throw their babies in wire cages!

                      LOL. Actually an Obama policy holdover. The cages were manufactured during Obama's reign.

                      WHERE is my freedom to pick and chose my friends and employees, on USA soil?

                      Your freedom to import immigrants looking to eventually vote against my libertarian endeavors as a US citizen, infringe on my rights. I'm trying to preserve libertarianism here, not replace it with marxism. So no - your immigrant friends are not wanted here.

        2. Readers will observe that the (fake) sockpuppet evaded the (real) Sqrlsy’s question, and instead disgorged vague opprobrium upon an imaginary “left.” Left now replaces Jewry of 1933.

        3. You goddamn fool! Look what you did. Do not engage sqrlsy. Fuck man how hard is it?

      2. Go ye and perform a citizen’s arrest of the carjacker, PLEASE! I, for one, would applaud ye heartily!

        The carjacker would shoot you, and then claim "self defense." The left would then celebrate it, acquit him, and get back to worshipping wokeness and marxism.

    2. Huh, that’s your takeaway: disappointment they didn’t arrest the mom.

      1. Trolling. Flag. Refresh.

    3. Police everywhere are generally incapable of arresting real criminals.

      The US national average closure rate for murder is only around 60%

      The closure rate for other violent crimes is under 50%

      For property crimes the closure rate is under 25%.

      1. They’re way too busy painting narratives, name-calling, counting jelly-beans, projecting blame and checking with Gov-Gods for permission to actually DO anything.

        Just like EVERY commie-money paid employee. There’s no incentive. And the entire USA’s workforce will inherit that no incentive attitude with every new commie-money check they get until the Democratic National Socialist Plan will throw the nation into a compulsive war for the POWER to Steal not ever realizing they destroyed anything worth stealing.

        1. I just read a story where they’re going to people’s houses to discuss their kid’s grades.

      2. The not-so-well kept secret is that the police don’t even try to close theft cases. They just file a report so you can file an insurance claim. What do you think they are, detectives or something?

        Carjacking is a high profile crime though, the chief will put his best officers on that.

      3. Hard for them to solve theft crimes when (in cases like civil asset forfeiture) the authorities are the actual thieves.
        A friend had his vehicle stolen. All the cops did was show up and go “you have insurance right”

    4. Just to clarify, are you upset that the carjacker hasn’t been caught and arrested, or are you saying that the mom should be arrested?

      If it’s the former, I agree, it would nice for once for the cops to actually do something useful for a change. Although I wouldn’t hold my breathe. If it’s the latter, then do the rest of the world a favor and go jump feet first into a running woodchipper.

  3. Since the carjacker drove with the child in the car in proximity to other vehicles (traffic), he is obviously guilty of human trafficking. And if the FBI gets involved, it’s likely they’ll prove he’s an insurrectionist and a white supremacist, as well. Which would make both the mother and the child co-conspirators.

    For the Good of The Republic, and for everyone’s safety, they must all serve federal time.

    1. You might want to have a doctor look at that chip on your shoulder. The article didn’t even mention the carjacker’s skin color, let alone anyone claiming he was a white supremacist.

      1. You might want to adjust your sarcometer.

      2. Skin color doesn’t matter. The alt right is extremely nefarious in their skulduggery, and we shouldn’t underestimate their treachery.

        Remember those two Nigerian white supremacists that tried to lynch the famous French actor, Juicy Sommelier, in the capitol city of MAGA country?

        Can’t be too careful when we are protecting Our Democracy, you know.

      3. It’s a white guy in the picture! What else could Reason be trying to say?

      4. God, WK, how can you be so backward and uneducated? Don’t you realize you don’t have to be white to enact Whiteness?

      5. Go drink some water, or sulfuric acid. According to you they’re the same thing.

    2. And he was mad at her so add a hate crime to the list.

      1. Good point. And he probably cursed, so conviction should be a slam-dunk.

      2. and he stole an SUV, so he doesn’t care about the climate. deplatform him.

  4. While I cannot guarantee what you might get offered if you’re successful with them,YHBnjk my research suggests around $30 USD per hour for those based in Asia/India, and around $30-40 USD per hour for those based in Europe and UK / US / Australia / New Zealand. I work through this link, go? to tech tab for work detail……Home Profit System

  5. If we prohibited everything that was even slightly dangerous, we would have to make it illegal to drive kids anywhere: Many more kids die as passengers in moving cars.

    You think you’re being funny but you’re not.

    1. “I have a Plan!”, All the Power-Mad people think after reading this article… My dictation over the people in this situation will solve everything.

    2. If it saves just one life…!

      1. I hear everyone in prison is pretty “safe” from moving car deaths!

  6. Motherfucker steals a car, realizes there’s a kid in it, then has the nerve to lecture Moms. Then still steals the car. Incredible.

    1. $50 bucks says he votes Democrat. 🙂

      1. $50 bucks says he can’t find his polling location.

        1. $50 that he’s a convicted felon, and voted Democratic. Via absentee ballot.

          1. $500 bucks says he voted several times for democrats as a convicted felon.

    2. It’s not clear if he was lecturing the mom or just didn’t want to face a kidnapping charge. I suspect it was the latter. They will put a lot more effort into looking for a kidnapped child than a stolen car.

      1. “He actually lectured the mother for leaving the child in the car and threatened to call the police on her,” said Officer Matt Henderson, a Beaverton police spokesman.

        1. OK, I failed. But that’s probably a good tactic for the thief too. Throw them off guard with some absurdity.

        2. Teach me for skimming the article.

        3. She should have said, “yeah, call the cops and stick around so they can get your statement”.

        4. “He actually lectured the mother for leaving the child in the car and threatened to call the police on her,” said Officer Matt Henderson, a Beaverton police spokesman.

          Guaranteed Democrat!

          ☑ Think's property and money doesn't matter.
          ☑ Doesn't respect the law.
          ☑ Is a nanny statist and likes to lecture people about safety while he steals shit.

    3. I don’t see any evidence he was ‘lecturing the mom’, despite the headline. He just yelled at her to get the kid. “Get your whining kid out of the car, because I’m stealing it” isn’t really lecturing the mom on parenting.

  7. While it is clearly dumb to leave keys—and kids—in an unlocked, running car, … the mom is the victim.

    At least she didn’t leave “valuables” in plain sight inside a locked, unrunning car. I hear *that* is basically criminal behavior.

    1. ..Our wise Hitlers already made that second option illegal a Decade ago; It was the very legislation that rooted today’s Free-Range kids movement.

      The RULERS-of-mind never questions their own visions of authority for horrible consequences. They are just RIGHT; always!!

      1. Well, if you have Good Intentions, what could possibly go wrong?

        Come on, man. It’s Settled Science.

    2. She was basically asking for it by the way she left her valuables in the car, er, I mean the way she dressed.

      Gawd, am I that old that I still remember the day when people still hand waved rape away with that excuse? Gawd, I still remember when it was the crazy bleeding heart liberals that thought women should not be raped regardless of how they dressed. Jeepers, did the manly men conservatives really think it was okay to rape a woman because the top button of her blouse was undone?

      1. I think the idea was more that certain elements of society cannot be expected to control their animal instincts when too much skin is exposed.

        1. I think it had a lot to do with the kind of women who DID dress provocatively for the era. The whores dress to advertise to get a customer.

          The implication being that dressing like a whore may get you propositioned like a whore.

          Rape wasn’t acceptable. It’s just much harder to prosecute rape in defense of someone who makes their living in the sack. Or should we go back to Title IX? It never really occurs to these discussions that liars exist among women to – it just gets pretended away when discussing blaming attire for rape. But it isn’t blaming the attire or the behavior for the rape so much as blaming the attire and behavior on why it is so hard to prosecute a truly guilty man under the legal system of presumed innocence.

          So what solution have we? Believe the woman always? Or presume innocence of the accused and therefore a very high standard of proof?

          It never much occurs that the traditional escorting of women was to protect them from such as much as make witness to assault, prevent rape and the getting away with it.

      2. No one ever hand waved rape away. That’s a lie you were told, and you believed it. Be more skeptical.

        1. Well, not in the last 45 years

      3. I’m old enough to remember the “don’t help a good kid go bad” PSAs that urged motorists to lock their cars so some “good kid” wouldn’t get in, hot-wire the ignition, and steal the car.

        I wasn’t even old enough to drive and I saw the stupidity of that logic.

  8. More proof that almost no one wants to steal a child—not even a criminal.

    Well, duh, children are fucking annoying little monsters. Who want’s to deal with that shit?

    On a slightly more serious note, I’m guessing this mom is going to have CPS so far up her ass that you won’t be able to tell where she ends and CPS begins. And of course, unlike carjackers, CPS agents will kidnap your children, for “your own good and theirs,” of course.

    1. Buttplug will take the little tykes off your hands. He has…… uses…… for them.

  9. If we prohibited everything that was even slightly dangerous…

    Stop giving them ideas.

    1. ^THIS…. ‘Ideas’ of how to wield MORE POWER over people.

    2. What the hell’s the matter with you? Don’t you want to BE SAFE?

      Why do you hate SAFETY?!!

      (And wear your mask. It’s Patriotic.)

      1. I want to be just as SAFE as I decide to be instead of how SAFE someone else thinks I should be while they run out the door with my freedom, money and self.

        1. Come on, man. That shit’s dangerous.

          It’s wrongthink like that that fucks things up for everybody.

          1. The only thing it f*cks up for others is their Power-Trip plans to feel better-than everyone else.

    3. Prohibit progressivism.

      1. progressivism: ideas so good they have to be made mandatory and enforced at the point of a gun

  10. Standby the car until the Mom returns? Yeah, and have Karen start screaming that you’re a child predator molester and whatever else fever-dreams come to her mind without blaming her own actions in the slightest.

    1. Sad thing is I was thinking the same thing when I read that “suggestion.”

      Yeah, me, a childless middle aged man, is gonna stand near a car that isn’t mine with a young child inside. No thank you, I don’t feel like being arrested and ending up on a “sex offender” registry.

      1. Yeah, maybe if the kid isn’t obviously in distress, you should mind your own damn business.

      2. Buttplug is probably jacking it to all of this. Stealing a car with a kid inside would be like pedo Christmas to him.

    2. It was not too long ago you could smile and say something nice when there was a mom and kiddo in the grocery line.

    3. For fucks sake Karen is the carjacker here. And the mom should be lucky about that

      1. For fucks sake Karen is the carjacker here. And the mom should be lucky about that

        The risks are so slim, they are more likely to die of the Flu than death by carjacker. I think you need to grow a pair, and stop being a Karen yourself.

  11. “More proof that almost no one wants to steal a child—not even a criminal.”

    Duh, not Super Bowl weekend in the host city.

  12. This should have been a defensive shooting: Mom putting a bullet in the head of the guy who had hijacked her car with her child in it.

    1. True, but put yourself in the shoes of a mom. ANYTHING she does is glommed onto as a pretext for the Political Staat coercing her at gunpoint for the evident “crime” of having a kid. Women not interested in raising a kid can hardly be expected to want to expose themselves to 18 years of scrutiny, suspicion, surveillance and second-guessing while surrounded by creeps backed by creeps with guns eager for a pretext to fine, imprison, coerce, shoot or shame her. This is a good time to appreciate the 19th Amendment–the one that just showed Republican National Socialists the door.

      1. Do you talk about this stuff to people in real life? If so, how do they respond?

  13. Yeah it`s Possible…Anybody can earn 250$+ daily… You can earn from 6000-12000 a month or even more if you work as a full time job…It’s easy, just follow instructions on this page, read it carefully from start to finish… It’s a flexible job But a good
    eaning opportunity.. Here is More information.

  14. “While it is clearly dumb to leave keys—and kids—in an unlocked, running car, I am thrilled that the cops did not charge this lady with a crime.”

    The author must be the patron saint of criminally negligent, stupid, unfit parents.

    Let’s hope the child overcomes the obstacle of having this mother.

    1. After all, that’s what CPS is there for.

      To protect State property.

    2. No no no you’re supposed to say defund the police and bitter clingers and that kind of stuff.

      What happened to you.

      1. The Rev has mother issues. Who knew?

        Poor bastard.

    3. The author must be the patron saint of criminally negligent, stupid, unfit parents.

      Why is she "criminally negligent, stupid, and/or unfit?

  15. I HAD to read the whole thing not just because Lenore is so kewl, but also to find out how mom escaped being arrested. Imagine for a moment she whips out a Colt and shoots the perp stealing the car and kid. How many here guess the looter régime would throw her under a prison and hand the kid over to Child Protective Hitlerjugend?

    1. Democrats everywhere would orgasm upon hearing that.

  16. The carjacker is the criminal here, and the mom is the victim. Let’s keep that straight.

    No that’s not it at all. The CHILD is the victim. The mom is the stupid self-centered distracted bitch. And the carjacker is criminal Karen.

    1. No that’s not it at all. The CHILD is the victim. The mom is the stupid self-centered distracted bitch. And the carjacker is criminal Karen.

      Disagree. Mom is looking to do things efficiently throughout her day. And, if a child is sleeping (like a 4 yr old) waking them up to go in a store is a mistake. They very well could scream and cry their guts out. Do you have children? Even in the leftist land of Hawaii, the law permits you 5 minutes. So ... no. I think parents know and understand their children better than broad sweeping legislation. I can see you aren't into free range children. But everyone's got an opinion right??? Even the police officer agreed with her, and issued no citation:

      She was never more than 15 feet from the car, according to police spokesman Matt Henderson. Nor did she dawdle. She was in the store very briefly, a clerk at the store attested.
