Good Daddy. Glad you chased down the SOB that tried to grab your kid.

/*STANDING OVATION*

Child kidnapping trifecta in play?
 
2012-08-30 12:20:03 PM
Anyone who says anything less than overwhelmingly positive about the alleged would-be culprit is a racist.

See how that works?

The face the perp makes just screams, "hey, where da white women at?".

It sounds like the dude has some serious mental problems. Kudos to the dad for chasing him down and making sure he got caught.

Man. A black criminal? Say it ain't so.
 
2012-08-30 12:22:00 PM
I read the article as the man with the sideways dented face trying to snatch the girl - it doesn't clearly state that he did

Regardless - well done Dad

FTA: But when Mr Davis returned to the plaza, he found his girls terrified and crying. They were traumatized and still have trouble sleeping.

Well, if you want the Chicago Tribune story from yesterday that's actually written by someone not a screaming gibbon at the Daily Fail, here you go.

From a left-slant: He didn't wait for police and took matters into his own hands. Not a hero.

From a right-slant: He didn't pull out his BFG9000 and turn the pervert perp into ash. Not a hero.

Either way, no story.

Father is a hero. Only downside is that the would be kidnapper is still breathing.

The family had been downtown for one of their "nighttime adventures," Davis said.

A foot chase through the streets of Chicago? Someone had to get at least part of the chase on video.
 
2012-08-30 12:41:16 PM
That article, and many of these comments, are written as those the father made some heroic choice to stop the guy leaving with his daughter. It really just seems like it was the common sense thing to do.
 
2012-08-30 12:43:43 PM
The guy is not brave nor is he a hero.

He is a father.

This is what we are supposed to do and no better word describes it.

Oh look, the usual idiots blaming the guy's race. He sounds mentally ill and in need of medical attention. I had a creepy old bearded, foul-smelling man walk up to me at the grocery store once, tug on my 3-year-old son's hair, which was a little shaggy, and ask him if he was a pretty little boy or a pretty little girl. I had to push him away and yell for help from the store staff. He was white.

My kids were sleeping at 9:30 PM when they were 2 years old. I don't know why I didn't bring them out to play in downtown Chicago, seems perfectly safe.

I am pretty sure the crazy guy is one of the people who gather cigarette butts from the ashtrays outside my building.

Still trying to figure out how a 55 year old mental patient was able to wrestle away a 2 year old from a 31 year old father. Kudos for the marathon though, and glad the kid is safe.

2012-08-30 01:04:05 PM
A normal, non-heroic father would have let his kids be taken away by some dead-beat.

Obviously.

The shock of violence. In this case a sudden grab would be enough to snatch the girl away. However it was not enough to overcome the awakening of the sleeping giant of a badass that lives inside of every real dad. The goblin is damned lucky to have survived.

I don't think he took the kid.

He tried to, then the father followed him until he (the father) encountered some cops.

You don't send crazy people to jail. They go to hospitals and get treatment and medication and they're fine until they forget to take their meds.

Then they go snatch another baby and maybe they don't get caught right away and the baby gets dead. He freaks out and walks into the street screaming until the cops take him away, again, and the body is discovered.

Then people start screaming about the state of mental healthcare in this country and the cycle repeats.
