So, the guy punches the 9 year old in the face (which apparently caused no injury to the child), tries to run across the street and falls, then just lies there until the police arrive?

What aren't they telling us, here?

This article, the complaint said, seems to be deliminated, the complaint said, by an expression, or so the complaint said.

The mother left her kids (9 years old and below) in the car while going into the store and not only left the doors unlocked, but left them open and with the keys in the ignition (and the car running)? Forget legal action, that woman needs to be nuked from orbit (only way to be sure). The kids would be better off in the shiathole that most state-managed foster-care systems tend to be than in the care of a woman that's obviously actively trying to cause them to die.

Oh, and the carjacker is also a dumbass for getting in the car, seeing a bunch of kids in it, and not immediately turning around and getting the fark out of there. Maybe he was trying to save them from their resident Medea acolyte?

Seriously, when the 9-year-old is the smartest person in the story (going for the keys when presented with a larger opponent is pretty clever under pressure, I'd say) there's waaaaay too much dumbass going around.

//Seriously, you leave a car running with a bunch of young children, you know that at the very least one of 'em is going to try for the gear shift. That goes way beyond simple negligence, that's gotta be intentionally placing the buggers in danger.

I laffed at this comment:

The Mother did nothing wrong! Is it a crime to go to the store? There is no law against leaving your children in the car while you make a pit-n-git. The same people villifing this mother are the same people who will let their kids watch Mtv,or the music awards, even MSNBC which is far more harmful than leaving kids in the car. The crime is the dumba s s trying to STEAL the car, this is the one you people should be concerned with!
 
2009-11-08 10:14:12 AM
Good on the kid!

The mother is an asshole. The guy that punched the kid in the face is a bigger asshole.

/keep firing assholes!

Agreed. Why do people leave their cars running and empty? Whenever I see that I want to get in and move the car a block away just to fark with their heads.
 
2009-11-08 10:22:48 AM
srsly. the only real victim here is the foiled thief.. if the mother had not left the keys in the car he would have not been tempted to steal that car. So just remember that the next time you take the chitlins on the family beer run. Culture of victimhood ftw! Really, are you guys even thinking before you post or do you really believe that crap?

Lt. Kim West said Stephanie Medford of Charleston had left the Buick in the lot Wednesday night with the keys in the ignition and the engine running while she went into the store.

Kids or no kids in the car, why do people EVER do this?

The image of a child being punched out of a car is a little too hilarious for me. I mean, in this case, it was totally serious and awful, but out of context, comedy gold. I would pay to see it. It would be funnier if the kid was actually punched through the door, like a terminator being hit by another terminator. But I mean, it was awful that this happened, truly a stain on the community.

/but still hysterical.
// but awful.

I hear voices in my head
They come to me
They understand
They talk to me
You got your rules and your religion all designed to keep you safe.
But when rules start getting broken you start questioning your faith.
I have a voice that is my savior,
Hates to love and Loves to hate.
I have a voice that has knowledge and the power to rule your fate.
I hear voices cryin
I see heroes dyin
I taste blood thats dryin
I feel tension risin
I hear voices in my head
They come to me
They understand
They talk to me,They talk to me
They tell me things, that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you.
They talk to me

Why'd the guy get charged with 4 counts of kidnapping when he didn't kidnap anyone?

Man, that kid is going to get so much ass.

Martin was charged with grand larceny and four counts of kidnapping.

No charge for punching a 9-year-old boy in the face? Is that legal now?
 
2009-11-08 10:53:50 AM
RivenSilver: Why'd the guy get charged with 4 counts of kidnapping when he didn't kidnap anyone?

Because he was trying to steal a car with the kids in it. Some states have laws that, even if the carjacker didn't know there was a kid in the car, well, tough luck, there was, so welcome to kidnapping charges. And it doesn't matter if it was a successful jacking or not, the intent was there.

"Nine year old took the keys."

I do it all the time when I'm running into a store for just a couple of minutes. I have remote start, and I can leave the car running and locked with no keys in the ignition. It's cold where I live.
As far as leaving your KIDS in there... I'm on the fence. If you have a kid who is old enough and responsible enough to know not to mess with the gearshift, etc., and assuming you live somewhere safe, I don't have an issue with it (keep the car locked, though). My parents did it when I was little, but we lived in a town of 1500 people.

Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaah your remote starter is nothing close to 'leaving the keys in the ignition, unlocked with kids inside'

That's true. Sorry I wasn't clear... I was responding to someone who wanted to know "why you would ever leave your car with the engine running." Unlocked, with your kids inside is a different issue completely. I am not defending that at all.

I have a cousin that did that when he was little. He drove the car right into the supermarket where his mother was buying groceries. Never leave the car running.

I think you missed the part where he put the car into drive. That's kidnapping right there, whether he got away or not. Lock him up and throw away the key.

After being hit in the face, the kid got up and slowly wiped the bruise and said, "Is that all you got a@@hole". He then grabbed the crowbar he knew was stashed behind the back seat. The guy panicked and ran. The kid threw the crowbar at his legs tripping him. The kid slowly and casually walked up to the guy who was now on the ground blubbering for his life. With an evil smile the kid grabbed the crowbar and began beating the living crap out the guy. The kid then realized the mom was going to come out soon and wiping the blood off the crowbar went back to the car. The guy wanting to call 911 crawled to the convience store, but only made it as far as the parking lot before the cops showed up.

The only hero in this is the attempted carjacker for giving that kid what he deserved, a solid punhc in the face.Mom prob had to leave the car running so shiat kid could watch spongebob on the dvd player. kid should kno not to interfere with adults business. those arent his keys any more than the keys of the carajcker.
 
2009-11-08 11:39:05 AM
i leave my car running all the time. My parents did it to and even left us in the car. Also they did this while i was about 4 years old. i see no prob with it. still live in the same town now for 27 years. but we only have 7900 people in this town.
 
2009-11-08 11:39:19 AM
Yea, I get having 4 kids and needing milk (or whatever) and not wanting to take the toddlers out of their seats. But not locking the door and taking the keys?? WTF? CPS will be be visiting.
And yes there has to be more to the story of our feckless carjacker.
 
2009-11-08 11:42:06 AM
I hope there's a law against this where they live, and I hope she's charged. Sure, your kids may be old enough to know not to mess with the car when it's running. But obviously that's not the only threat, biatch.

I'm surprised nobody's yet mentioned the kid who was dragged to death in an incident that started similarly. (new window)

Actually, that's supposed to happen by about 9 MONTHS old. If it hadn't by 9 years old, it would be abnormal.

Brave kid, if not an entirely wise thing to do most of the time. I would imagine most carjackers are armed with at least a knife unless they're a raging moron. Though, you'd almost have to be a raging moron not to notice that the care you picked is full of children, so there is that.
