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.

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.

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


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.

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.

Really?  This kid just got abducted from her front yard and you ask that question? Amazing.

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.


Statistically? No there aren't. I'll no more "protect" my daughter from the horrors of the big blue room because of the remote possibility of a rape clown stealing her than I make her stay inside lest she get struck by lightning. I do a realistic risk/benefit analysis, and act accordingly. My daughter is far more likely to be molested by a family member than a stranger, but I don't keep her locked in her room when Grama and Grampa come to visit.

Mr.Man: What the heck does the skin color of these people have anything to do with this story.
A little Saturday fark race baiting I guess. I thought Drew was better than that.


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.

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

They included a video for your viewing pleasure.

And I watched the video: still not seeing it.


This is one of the boys:
