The Houston Police Department told KTRK that the baby's mother had left the child in her vehicle as she checked that her apartment was locked and when she returned, the car was gone, along with the infant.

Admittedly I don't have any kids so I'm probably in no position to judge or understand, but this doesn't seem quite......right.

Meh, kids require a LOT of stuff, there were plenty of times when I lived in an apartment where I had to make multiple trips and so the kid got left in the car for 30-60 seconds while I ran back upstairs. Baring some weird thing like this it's perfectly safe and reasonable to do.

This was more of a Theft than a carjacking, since the perp never saw the victim.

So not PERFECTLY safe.  Since once in a while carjackers jack a car with kids in it.

Also this was a baby, so it would have been strapped into a car seat.  I can totally understand not wanting to undo all of that just to run back to the front door and make sure it was locked and then do it all over again.

People that think that parents actually can be fully 100% with their kids at all time... Well, they never had kids, or they'd knees it's simply impossible to not lapse.

(Although I would have turned off the engine, locked the door and taken the keys with me, I'd like to think)

It's probably something along the lines of...it was cold, and I didn't want to turn off the heater in my car while I went into 7-11, and some 'thug' decided to steal my car while I left it idling with the keys in the ignition and my child in back in a car seat...

OMG, how did this happen!

That's crazy. Once almost a decade ago I was driving back to my store after delivering a pizza through the general vicinity where 50 Cent grew up, like a couple blocks west of the South Jamaica Houses, not too far from York College, on South Rd, just across the LIRR tracks where the milk bottlers (cartoners?) and shiat are, when a street hooker ran up to my driver's side window at a red light (no right on red in NYC unless there's the rare sign saying you can) begging me to call 911 because there was literally a topless hooker face down on the sidewalk she (claimed she) didn't know but couldn't wake up. She also claimed she asked some passing "church ladies" to call 911 and they refused. Ten minutes later the EMTs called me back asking if I was still at the scene and I said I was already back in Queens Village because I work for tips and actually get paid more (tax-exempt) money by the company if I do more deliveries and the dude responded "I understand."

All this was during broad daylight, by the way. If it was a night the hookers on South Rd would have been a little less... err.. cis.

OK. I never left my boys alone in the car. When aI had my first son, I left him in his play pen while I loaded the car up. Then, after everything I needed, I would take the baby and lock the door with him in my arms. It wasn't always easy, (he could squirm all over), but I knew he was safe. Then I would strap him in and go where I had to go. I NEVER  left him out of my eye sight out side of the home.

155th and South Road, see the Long Island Railroad tracks and York College, the projects aren't marked but they're the blocks just east of the tracks and southwest of the college, "40Ps" nicknamed after the local elementary school PS 40. The milk facilities are/were located between then-South Rd now-Tuskagee-on-the-map and Styler.

I always figured all that trouble was well worth the infinitesimal chance that my child could be kidnapped, or even injured or killed by a car crashing into mine.

You put the kid in the car. ( Which is ton of work.) (Unless you just leave the car seat in to rot in the sun. Becoming less effective over time as the sun weakens the car seat)
And just as you get ready to drive off, you think did I farking lock the door. Do you really pull the kid out and take it with you?
But. If it makes you feel better we'll always take the kid with them to double check the door now.

I start the car, separate the ignition and car door key, and lock the car and run into the gas station.

Being a parent is a balancing act. Not her fault. Carry the kid out, no hands to lock the door, put kid in the car, turn it on so you have AC, go back and lock the door.

The entire blame is on the dirtbag who stole the car.

Cleveland's is out on the edge of the city over by the world class Natural History museum, Art museum, and the home of the Cleveland Orchestra. Unlike many cities we didn't put ours in the ghetto.

Fara Clark: Right. Every city of any size has a "MLK Bvld" and it is never in the middle of white bread (bred) suburbia


I understand the reasoning behind it, but I think an obvious rename by using too many words or full names sends up red flags, "the local community wants to get away from the street's awful rep." Plain old Tuskegee St. or King St. would blend in better in my mind but it's not up to me. But I feel the same way about modern renaming even when it's just some bridge and a white guy. Just use the last name, otherwise it sounds tacky.

What I don't understand is the dude upthread who said my story is preposterous -- I think it's fairly tame for a delivery story, and it's far from the first time I've posted some CSB about being a young white guy delivering pizza in southeast Queens. Most of them involve being "reverse-racially profiled," though. Having a black person in the passenger seat meant I was less likely to get my car searched than being alone. If anything that sounds more preposterous than my other story but in retrospect it makes sense -- driving a coworker (or "coworker") home on the company dime is less suspicious than being a random white dude all alone in a non-gentrifying, semi-suburban, mostly-middle-class black area. I never got pulled over in the actual hood parts because the detectives there have bigger fish to fry than gambling on pulling over a random white dude that might be using a pizza delivery job for cover to make buys at a local stash house or whatever. Over and over again.
