Good for the boys. Hopefully nothing bad had happened to the girl.

Darth_Lukecash: Good for the boys. Hopefully nothing bad had happened to the girl.


Going by what was said in the video she was taken to a hospital & examined & evidence was taken. Sadly it sounds as though the creep who kidnapped her also molested her.

And the boys are indeed heroes.

"a man lured the girl into his car by offering to get her ice cream. Police are checking with ice cream shops in the area"

That's some fine police work there, Lou.

And what is a 5-year-old doing playing outside unsupervised?

Another thought: the suspect is old enough that this is not likely to be the first time he's done something like this.  He may never have been caught, and has finally gotten careless.

Took me a sec but good one, Subby.

Good also on the boys who at got her back alive to her folks.

Limpy McPedocreep needs to be found. I'm thinking soonish is best.

FTA: "He was wearing green shoes and green pants with a red and white striped shirt."

Looks like he'll be able to claim he's mentally retarded when he ends up in court.

and only one of the teens gets named, at the very end of the article. That's just a bit ridiculous to bury the real credit for the story.

Did you guys here the one about the jewish child molester?

he said come here little girl do you want to buy some candy?

stonelotus : were they wearing hoodies?

Since they were this little girl's guardian angels, I'd guess they were wearing halos.

What was he wearing? Well, he was wearing green shoes and green pants, and a red and white striped shirt.

I'm sorry, but why shouldn't she be able to play in her own front yard unsupervised?

I do agree with you that this isn't the first time this major creep has done this to a child.

Remembering that is what prompted my initial post.

The real question is:  did she get her ice cream?

Listen, you can live your life in hopes that everything will always be as it SHOULD be...or you can protect your child and understand that there are real farking monsters out there that will do unspeakable things to said child given half a chance.

Heroes for sure, give these boys some Colt 45 and a bucket of KFC.

Somehow I missed the descriptor "black" with respect to the two teenagers. Is that in another article? Did subby make it up?

As someone who played in his front yard through the late 50's into the mid 60's until I got lured into a car for free LSD this makes me very sad.  I know there were perv's back then too, I'm thankful they missed my street.

One of the teens name is Tamar Boggs. Not exactly proof, but that's what they gave us. All the way at the bottom of the 2nd page. Media sucks.

and I have my suspicions that "Joceyln Rojas" isn't the name of a white girl.

nowhere in the article or video was the race of the girl or 2 teen boys mentioned.

seems like subby took a lot of liberties with the story to force a weak headline about such a horrific situation.

/it just doesn't work if you have to create aspects of the story to justify a headline.

Since this happened on Thursday and has been making the rounds of news sites I am guessing subby has seen several photos and videos of Tamar who is black. The other boy has not been named and no photos of him have been shown (parents said "no"?).

The cool thing about these boys is that they heard about the Amber Alert and took off on their bicycles to help look for the little girl instead of staying in the house playing video games or whatever. Good citizens of their community.

It's nice when (relatively) happy stories prompt us to rethink stereotypes?

I think will the wall to wall coverage any racially based conflict gets, it is nice to see articles now and then were people from different races are helping each other. It does kind of go against those who want to make America seem like the Antebellum South, but not every interaction between people of different skin tones is a negative thing and I think we need more news stories about stuff like this which show that whites and blacks do not instinctively hate each other.

I am just glad nothing happened. If the Martin trial has taught us anything, it is that if some one is following you, punching them in the face is a reasonable response. Those kids should be careful playing cop.
