Why would a mother and grand mother screw with their child like that?

She is a teacher in Illinois. I hope she is good on past tense.

Nothing like traumatizing your own kid to spite your ex. Sounds like the father made the right choice getting away from the generational crazy.

Grandma was the wheelman.

Divorcing her is likely the smart move on his part.

Cheeznrice they are so butt ugly, which one is witch?

The headline makes it sound like the women used the kids bicycle to get away.
Are we not doing phrasing anymore?

He was probably breaking the law anyway. It comes naturally to 'those people'.

When a kid freaks out at the sight of mommy and granny, there is some sort of seriously bad backstory.
 
2017-07-16 07:34:16 AM  
Well, that should settle the custody issue. For good.

When my parents split up, dad kept the cat.  One day, my mom decided to drive by and steal the cat.  Dad didn't do anything about it but every once in a while, he'd say, "I can't believe she took the cat."
 
AOW

Amen, if me and the missus wanted to kidnap any og our gandchildren all we would need to do is enter their line of sight and the lil rugrats will become kid shaped homing nissiles locked on us screaming nana papa, it would kill me if any kid, especially our own grandkids were that scared of me

Yep, for sure. A friend and old coworker had a child with a girl who immediately cheated on him as soon as her vagina healed. She got custody because they weren't married and he only had part time work. Fast forward 4 years and she met a guy and announced she's moving to Florida (20hr drive south) because the new boyfriend races dirt bikes there, and she's taking the kid. My buddy is a mess everyday, eyes swollen from crying every night. He dotes on his kid so much, I felt so horrible for him. He was making arrangements to move there so he would be close to her (his new wife didn't want to move down there)...so much drama and sadness. He finally lawyered up and got partial custody. Makes me so glad I didn't have kids with my cheating whore of an ex-wife.

One would hope. Courts often do strange things when it comes to custody.

No offense to her? You literally just called her a biatch.

On topic, I hope someone started a Gofundme for this kid's therapy bills. If the kid freaks out that much at the sheer sight of his mother, I don't wanna think about what's in that five years of past. Poor munchkin.

The defendants live in Illinois, where the younger Cook is a teacher

I'm sure she's not anymore.

Courts will still grant custody to the mother once the divorce is finalized.

How do I know you DNRTFA?

Why were they riding the 5 year old's bicycle?

I took that to mean it isn't possible to offend someone who would do something so low. Hence, there is no conflict between the two statements.

Just one man's opinion.

You ever wonder why she took the cat but left you?

Some guy with at least two DUIs?

Which just proves my point that they're all criminals.

She didn't.  It was the 70s.  Mothers always got custody, even if they were stark raving mad.

A lot of people are making the assumption that the mom is crazy and the dad is in the right.  As far as the law, no doubt.  But there is no backstory here.  Obviously a very contentious divorce and custody battle.  We don't know how the kid came to be with the father, what the father tells the kid about his mother and a host of other things.
 
2017-07-16 03:36:15 PM  
Reminds me of one of the worse stories I've heard about my dad.  After he split from his first wife, he had two kids with, he got one the dumbest ideas he could think of.  He decided he wanted one of the kids.  He got drunk and kid napped my sis.  When he got a little sober, he realized which kid he had, then called his former mil for an exchange for my my bro.  IDK how he didn't go to jail.  It took way over 30 years before my sis really started talking to him again, about the same time her and I started actually having some simbling relationship.  Until then, I took some blame even though I was only born during that time.
 
2017-07-16 04:50:44 PM  
Yes let them back on the streets. I'm that just because they were crazy enough to do it once they won't do it again.

Begoggle: Courts will still grant custody to the mother once the divorce is finalized.


Father: "BUT SHE KIDNAPPED THE KID!"

Judge: "FULL CUSTODY! And you must pay all the child support!"

Father: WTF?!

(I hope the dad gets full custody, but you know how messed up the courts are in regards to that...)
