A Man Steals a Car . . . Finds a Toddler Inside . . . Then Drives Back To Yell At the Parents For Leaving Their Child Unattended
Here’s a very unusual moral compass. For the thief in this story, stealing a car is fine . . . but being a bad parent is NOT. Last week, a 22-year-old woman from Houston, Texas and her boyfriend were fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. No names have been released. They had the woman’s two-year-old son with them, but decided that it was too cold for him to be outside. So the woman took him back to her Mitsubishi Eclipse, sat him inside, turned on the ignition, started the heater, than ran back to grab the fishing equipment. She was only gone for a few minutes to help pack up and carry the gear. During those two minutes, a homeless man who’d been watching the couple saw an opportunity . . . and STOLE the car. He drove off . . . but before he was even out of sight, he did a U-turn and drove back to where the car had been parked. He got out of the car and started YELLING at the woman and her boyfriend about being BAD PARENTS for leaving their kid in the car. They called the police, and the homeless guy took off. The police spoke with the woman and ended up not giving her a citation for leaving her kid unattended for a few minutes in the car.
