I'm betting alcohol was involved.

You can always make another kid. This Apex/Coby/Polaroid/Broksonic 50" LED 3D HDTV won't always be $99!!

Most people will return a 2 year old. But if they find a TV, they're keeping that.
 
2012-11-23 05:30:10 PM
Hey it's not like the TV can walk home on its own.
 
2012-11-23 06:05:11 PM
You can abuse a cheap TV and no one cares. You abuse a child and everyone gets all worked up 'n' shiat.

So you tell me, which one would you want around?

/where'd I put that hand basket

"Hey, is this kid on clearance too?"

So nobody got robbed, shot, stabbed or trampled this year?

Indubitably: Which is going to provide more actually cheap entertainment?


well, i couldn't afford a kid right now but i can damn sure maintain a television. and several computers. it's a big family.
 
2012-11-23 06:38:32 PM
32 inch kid or 51 inch TV. Kid loses everytime.
 
2012-11-23 06:38:38 PM
so the kid was sleeping soundly in a locked car, security broke into it, stole the kid and the guy gets grief?


they page folks for left on headlights and they couldn't do that here? "would the owner of the 199x ___ who left his kid in the car please come to the front of the store".
 
2012-11-23 06:41:06 PM
No charges against the actual mother of the child? There has to be some requirement of judgment over whom you leave your kid with. You can't leave a kid with a dog and expect it to be a nanny like in Peter Pan.

fusillade762: So nobody got robbed, shot, stabbed or trampled this year?


Just saw a news headline about 2 people getting shot at a walmart in north Florida. And as far as this story, in all fairness, it wasn't actually his kid.

fusillade762: So nobody got robbed, shot, stabbed or trampled this year?


A man and woman got run over in a Wal-Mart parking lot and I've heard of a few fights. But nothing too serious.

He leaves the kid sleeping in his car, forgets the car, so he gets a ride home with somebody else leaving the kid there?
 
2012-11-23 06:46:46 PM
Wait a minute...he drives to the store, buys a tv, then LEAVES HIS CAR there with a kid in it? Why wouldn't he just take his car home? Or was it his car the kid was in? TFA doesn't give enough info.

OK, I hadn't read the article yet, but this is six kinds of awesome.

He told police he lost the boy while shopping, panicked and called someone else for a ride. The station reported that Perry did not alert Springfield police about the missing boy. Police could not immediately determine how Perry was able to lug the TV to his home without the car he drove to the store.

There had better be alcohol involved, if you drive to the store with a kid sleeping in the car, buy a TV, then FORGET you've got both the kid AND the car and haul home a 51" TV on foot. I can (barely) understand forgetting the kid is in the car. But how do you forget you brought a whole car to the store...when you're buying a TV?!

He's either drunk or painfully retarded.
 
2012-11-23 06:57:41 PM
It's not like the kid wanted to go with him inside a chaotic Black Friday shop. He should've just left the kid at home though. How many 2 year old kids are smart enough to be mini-arsonists anyway?

The 2 year old will go looking for you, and most of them are expert escape artists.

Kid asleep in car, tv won't fit in car, calls friend with larger vehicle to help him with TV. Gets it home, unloads it, has to show friend how awesome it is before said friend takes him back to store. Kid sleeps all night, car is locked, what's the problem?

In whiskey tango land, absolutely nothing.

Police say a Massachusetts man left his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in a car while he went shopping for Black Friday bargains, then went home with his new 51-inch flat screen television and left the toddler behind.

All TV's are flat screen nowadays, are they not?

You're right. It's redundant. It's like saying 9 a.m. in the morning.

I drove my car while on Ambien, left it 4 miles away from my house and called the police the next morning to report my car stolen. Luckily there wasn't a 2 year old involved.

He left the kid in the car because he's a jackass. Comes out to see the cops busting the window and calls a friend to come get him.

That's my take.

Is nothing sacred? Last night and today proved the holidays have slipped away from the general public and been completely bastardized by Big Business. The traditional meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas both have been diluted by mass consumerism. Read more about the War on the Holidays and American Values being waged from the buildings of Wall Street at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-war-on-thanksgiving-one -turkeys.html where one Turkey gets his revenge for encroaching on Thanksgiving this year!

"OH DEAR GOD--something could be horribly wrong with my child! Better get this sweet TV out of here..."
 
2012-11-23 09:13:00 PM
I mean come on, what if the TV were 2 years old. Totally ancient. Haul it to the landfill.
 
2012-11-23 09:41:18 PM
Why?
 
2012-11-23 09:48:29 PM

You don't leave a 2 year old like that. I do suspect you're describing what happened, though.

redhook: So he went home with the TV but left the kid and the car in the parking lot?


A few years back I bought a 40" TV, and in its box it barely fit in the car.
too wide to fit in the trunk, and almost didn't fit on the back seat either.

Unless you have a hatchback, good luck trying to squeeze a 51" flat panel in one.

nburghmatt: people like this shouldn't be allowed to have TVs


Someone would do something like this (hell, anyone who gets caught acting like a jackass during the mass consumer event that is Black Friday) should be allowed to complete their purchases, then siezed in front of the store and have said purchases confiscated.

Except that apparently he didn't. That was the story he told the cops afterward.

Which still doesn't explain why, if he thought he lost the kid while shopping he didn't still get back into his OWN car and drive home. I mean, if you thought the kid was lost someplace in the store, and you knew you arrived in a vehicle, why wouldn't you get back IN your vehicle and drive home, even if it meant leaving the kid in the store? And if you were so panicked that you thought the best course was to abandon both the kid and your car, then why would you call a friend to take you back HOME, where you'd have to face the mother of the kid you just lost?

This guy is a complete drunken fool. Or a total retarded idiot. Or both.
