According to The Bulletin, some dumbass left her car running with the keys AND HER KID in it!
“A car thief who discovered a small child in the back seat of the SUV he boosted drove back to the child’s mother, demanded she take the child out of the back seat and drove off once again with her car.
“He actually lectured the mother for leaving the child in the car and threatened to call the police on her,” said Beaverton Police public information officer Matt Henderson.
The crime occurred at 9:10 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Basics Meat Market in Beaverton. The mother parked just outside the store’s front door and went inside to buy a gallon of milk and some meat, Henderson said. She was never more than 15 feet from the car, but she made a critical error.
She left the engine running and the doors unlocked.”
This story is messed up. The police said that it’s not a crime for her to do this? What if the kid got out of her seat and put the car in gear? What if someone stole the car with her kid in it? Oh wait, that is exactly what the fuck happened. How is that not child endangerment? Thank the good Lord that this thief was an honest man and did the responsible thing and returned the child and threatened to report this terrible mom before driving off again with her car. I think this “thief” deserves a reward. I declare him prince of thieves (sorry Robin Hood) and think he should get a fancy new hat and get to keep the car and also be compensated for his brief babysitting. This woman is obvious not responsible enough to own a car or take care of her own child. The woman belongs in jail, not this alleged car thief. I wouldn’t leave a pack of smokes in an unlocked car with the keys in it, let alone a child. You know society is going to shit when moms are getting reasonable parenting advice from car thieves.
