Sheriff's deputies find children alive in car trunk in Highland

Well, they're alive, what more do you want? No harm, no foul, right?

Statistically, the trunk is the safest place for children to be, considering that most drunk driving accidents involve front-end collisions.

The Sheriff's Department received a call at 10:44 p.m. from someone who reported seeing a child in the trunk of a black Cadillac at the drive-through of a Baker's restaurant.

I'd have gotten away with this crime because the trunk of my car is opaque.

Duh, that's why you're supposed to travel sober.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Statistically, the trunk is the safest place for children to be, considering that most drunk driving accidents involve front-end collisions.


Especially a trunk outiftted with airbags and styrofoam peanuts.  If you are going to drive hammered with the kids why not take full precautionary measures?
(Note to court: This message in no way condones or absconds those who drive with kids in the back while drunk)

might as well - some of you people think if you drive after even having 2 beers you should be tortured to death

/no, I'm not driving, but I would if I were out of booze
//and if the liquor store were still open
///I stop a red lights though.

Before anyone comments, I would like to apologize for the Cool Tag. I thought I'd submitted this under Dumbass. I must have hit the wrong icon. Also, if you're going to insult the city itself, I was born and raised there. Of course, I got married at 18 and we moved away as fast as we could. So insult the city all you want, it's justified.

When I was a teenager I used to go on joyrides with my buddies. Usually we'd stash somebody in the trunk since the car was too small to fit everybody.

Though I don't think that's what was going on in this case.

Seriously, though. Sometimes kids want to ride in the trunk. Or if you have a station wagon, the back area. Sometimes on the floor of the backseat.

Kids are dumb.

Now, obviously, parents should be trying to curb such behavior, but in an impaired state like being drunk, sometimes those kids' ideas sound downright fun. So the kids get to ride in the trunk.

Toss some police officer into the mix and now you've got yelling and abuse of authority, and *of course* the kids are going to be crying. They don't want to see mommy and daddy hauled off to jail.

Now these kids are going to grow up thinking that they are the reason their parents are in jail. That's a heavy burden to put on such little kids. It'll probably scar them for life, unlike riding in the trunk of a car.

Cool tag? Only if the car was a 1975 Ford Pinto. Then it would be cool.

Okay, you made me click the article.

Sheriff's deputies find children alive in car trunk in Highland

Is it bad that my Weeners in my head was that you should have used the FAIL tag?

And no I still didn't read beyond the headline.

None of the children in my trunk are alive.

/Oh, FFS, in this day and age I probably need to explain that none of them are dead either
//I don't need a SWAT team showing up at my door just because I have a twisted sense of humor absurdity
////Seriously, all the children in my trunk are alive, by which I mean there are no childrens in my trunk
//I've said too much already haven't I?

I'm no car expert, but I thought Pintos had hatchbacks instead of trunks

I farking loved riding in trunks and hatchbacks and the like as a kid.  It was awesome.  Not that I'd ever let my kid have that sort of cool fun, of course.

Regardless of anything else I would like to just point out that Pampers diapers and McDonalds have become sponsored.  I knew you were a big whore Drew but dammmn homie.

Naw...the pyrotechnic friendly Pintos came in both coupe & hatchback (as well as station wagon).

You're right and GIS confirms this.  I had a specific picture in my mind of a Pinto.  They're all still ugly though and I cant remember when the last time I saw one on the road was.

To be fair I haven't seen a lot of old cars on the road in many years.

SB (story bro - not cool, but interested me)

Last week I saw what I thought was an old Cadillac Sedan De'Ville from about 1980 (just a guess) on the road, so I sped up to confrim it.  The trunk shape and tail lights kind of gave it away.  I caught up to it and yup, that's what it was.

I was filled with mixed emotions.  The thing was still running, but it had no hubcaps and seemed to be struggling against its own weight.

I always love seeing old cars on the road whether or not it's a Caddy or a Pinto.

/by "old" I mean anything built at least 30 years ago or older.
//only 2 reasons why people drive cars that old:  1)  They think it's cool and want you to notice or 2) that's what they can afford
///My cars getting old but just old enough for people to laugh at rather than admire

Oh hell yeah! We had some kind of Pontiac, fake-wood paneled side, tan kind of affair. It had backward-facing rear seats, or you could fold them down and have just a cargo area. We always begged our parents to do the cargo option, so we could play "road painter" and pretend we were making the lane markings with our car. Also we would try to balance with our eyes closed. It's a wonder none of us ended up decapitated after a fiery wreck. So that's something.

I know dang cops they should have just shut the trunk back up, smiled shaking their head, wagging their finger, "you guys" and let them be on their way. The asshats! Cops ruin everything!
