  • Holy crap is that pathetic.
    We're raising a entire generation of paranoid morons who are being taught to be afraid of their own shadow.
  • Everybody panic?

    I do agree with TommyymmoY, though. This is pathetic.
  • Oddly enough, after the murder of Jessica Ridgeway I noticed there were a lot more reports of attempted abductions on the news than usual and that was even after they caught the guy.

    It made me wonder if attempted abductions usually don't get reported or if these attempted abductions were not really attempted abductions.

    If the guy was just making sure his door was shut properly, you'd think he would have just opened it and then quickly shut it and the drove on and it would have been obvious he was just making sure his door was shut. OTOH pulling over in front of a school bus stop and opening your door to see if a child hops into your car seems like a pretty lame attempt at an abduction.

    Did the guy think the kid would mistake his Honda for a school bus?
  • Seriously tho - white males are the only group that has no protection.
    This story and the people that called it in are ridiculous.
  • Happy Hours: pulling over in front of a school bus stop and opening your door to see if a child hops into your car seems like a pretty lame attempt at an abduction.


    I was about to say, "especially your driver's side door. Where's the child going to sit, your lap?" But then I realized that' kind of the point
  • Here's a story from a few years back -
    We were fostering a dog with a free spirit, a Mastiff that loved children. We have none.
    He would take it upon himself to wander.
    One day I noticed he had gone wandering and panicked. I saw some of the neighbor kids that knew him walking by and enlisted their help.
    I was a former Montessori sub and was comfortable dealing, with kids.
    I put one of the kids in the car and promised the other ones 5 bucks if they could help me find him.
    When we got him back I gave them all 5 dollars and some leftover Halloween candy and thanked them all.
    Mr.S. told me if I had been male I would be arrested. I guess so and it is a sad statement about society.

    No, we've already raised that generation. Now they have kids.
  • Mentat: No, we've already raised that generation. Now they have kids.


    Pretty much this.

    Gimme a farking break! Yes, you need to be aware of what's going on around you. If someone approaches you that you don't know, you need to be aware and able to get away if that person proves to be a threat. HOWEVER, you do NOT need to run from someone who stops near you, does nothing to you, and had absolutely no interaction with you. WTF people!?!?!?
  • Asking the kid for Grey Poupon. Non-story.
  • You see...

    This is why...

    This is why we can't have nice things, Barry. You asshole!

    Yup, it's why polls are consistently saying that if men were to see a child in trouble/hurt/alone on the street they wouldn't stop to help.
    -J-
  • Social anaphalaxis probably caused my innumeracy. Its crazy, I got a flat down the block from an elementary in the city and a house in the 'burbs down the street from an elementary. When the school in the 'burbs lets out, there are a hundredish (not exaggerating) SUVs idling around it. Crazy.
  • After reading TFA and considering the kid I have reached the conclusion that he is a Tea-Party Republican In Training. No one else has that much fear of ordinary things.

    Well, "please help me find my lost puppy" is the classic line used by stranger-danger "educators" and by really dumb pedo's, is it not?

    Yeah, you'd def be on a list. *sad*
  • The child reported that he was at his bus stop in the vicinity of Brown Road in East Fishkill when a gray car pulled over. The driver, described only as a white male, opened his driver's side car door.

    We all know it was the kids uncle who wanted to tear apart his little bunghole, every family has that molester uncle, maybe he just might of seen one or two episodes of chris hansen on dateline and decided the bus stop was a trap?
    Its possible this is all a big misunderstanding, kids to stupid to know lefty loosey tighty righty, its all possible it wasn't a honda but the candy van. The Kid did report he could see the drivers hand, in all probable the driver probably was not jerking off or thinking about sharp knees, instead he was grabbing for another heineken. We should reward this guy with a gold star, he did pull over before opening up another beer, its called being responsible.
  • Media are slipping.

    If they suggested that it might have a brown or black person then this would have gone top ten in the media charts - mommy's interviews given the vocoder treatment and released on iTunes.

    My son was scared and ran all the home
    He was sitting at the bus stop, all alone
    Then a man drove up
    Then a man drove up

    The door opened
    My son was scared
    My son was scared
    The door closed
    My son was scared
    My son was scared

    He coulda been raped
    He coulda been raped

    Driving kids around so they could help you find your lost dog and then giving them money and candy? Holy crap, yes. A man would be shot on sight for that.
