That kid's gonna go far...in either prison or Homeland Security!
Homeland Security? That kid's Solid Snake.
I give the kid credit. That's a true hankerin' for a toy fix, if you're willing to cross a heavily trafficked street, and then bust into a Family Dollar store.
Yes, what he did was wrong, but he's four, I sincerely doubt he had it all planned out and said "Aight. Here's the deal" to his teddy bear before making a break for it.
My guess is it was terrible parenting (I mean, he did figure out how to get out of his house, when they should've been keeping an eye on him.) and things he's seen.
I doubt that at the age of four he has this well ingrained sense of thievery. My guess is he saw family, friends, even a neighbor pull the same crap and figured "Okay, I can do it too."
I think CPS was right in keeping him from his parents. They're lucky he was found by the Cops, and was safely inside the store. He could've frozen to death, or been kidnapped, or wandered off and gotten completely lost, or even hit by a car while crossing the street.
You're just not doing your job when you four year old can pull off something like this.
This is one of those stories you read and keep thinking "Now I've seen it all." and then it's quickly bested by something even more off the wall.
And lately, we've had 19 year old women stabbing their meth head boyfriends, teens burning their houses down over XBoxes, and now this? All news in the same week.
Normal went out the window a while ago.
...ooh. Missed one other point. Why was the one door to the store unlocked? If a four year old can figure out how to get in, a grown adult could in a heartbeat.
I'm wondering if there's more to this story...just seems way too odd.
I just watched the included video clip from ABC News, and the anchor says the boy is actually only 2-3 years old. Which makes this even worse.
It was 3am, what parent sits up and watches their kid at that time of night? I'm usually asleep then. How can the parents be blamed for not properly watching the child? My 3 year old knows how to unlock and open the door for goodness sake.
Heh, that's a kid after my own heart! I used to break out of every bedroom my Parents put me in whenever they didn't want me running around (or hurt myself when they moving heavy objects). And lot of this behavior was inspired by Rugrats.
...I used my sibblings as Ladders when I couldn't reach the lock and I was oldest. The only locks I couldn't figure out were the child safty locks on those damn gates, I hated those things.
I love that kid.
Bond. Jimmy Bond.
When i was a baby i just broke those freakin locks.
yeah, ok...But was he playing with TF's?
Beat me to it.
Thanks a lot, Tekkaman. Now I'm gonna have nightmares.
Haha... I heard about that! I drive by that store everyday on my way to and from work. Surprised a homeless guy didn't pick him up and raise him as his own!
Good thing it was 3am, other wise that kid probably would have gotten hit by a car.
Edit: Just read the famous person thread, and now I claim that I am the most famous person on these here boards! I drive by a store every day that was broken into by a 3 year old!
Pure lulz, not sure the parents can really be blamed for having a crafty son
It's the coming of the Idiocracy, man!
Seriously, I can only imagine news stories getting worse before they get better.
Damn you Vile Eric!
Okay this phrase is getting fucking annoying and played out.
A. The movie sucked.
B. People have ALWAYS been idiots.
You're probably right, especially since so many people at the forums on IMDB use the phrase A LOT. However...
A. I disagree, the movie was good.
B. That may be true, but it seems that idiots are growing in number nowadays. Kind of ironic since we're supposedly living in the Information Age.
Damn... I guess I wasn't trying hard enough.
The movie didn't suck, actually.
And yes, humanity as a whole has a well documented history of being idiots.
The movie wasn't good. It didn't suck either. It was one of those films that literally sits right in the middle. There's nothing so terrible about it that it becomes unwatchable, but there's nothing so great about it that you'd want to pop it back in the DVD player right away.
Some very funny moments though.
omg I hope that pic doesnt give some stupid movie director the idea to make a live action Family Guy movie *shivers*
