I like to think I would have done more in that situation...

If my wife was beside me, along with not knowing what the guy could have had in the front seat within reach but out of my view (gun, knife, taser for example) my first priority would be to get the wife to a safer place before confronting the guy.

Cause what good would he have done if he tried to fight the guy and he grabs a gun and shoots the witnesses, or worse tasers them both and now he has 3 prisoners instead of 1.


My thoughts exactly. I'm all for trying to help someone out, but I would never forgive myself if something happened to my significant other because I tried to be a hero.

I don't think most here expected JJ to fight the man.

if you have a person in the back against their will are you going to roll through and pick up a basketball player and his wife?

seems strange.

i can think of a million reasons a person would be under a blanket like that in a car that all all odd but believable.

against their will though. thats a stretch for me when youre picking people up and opening the back where this person is.

and based on the size of the box or cage that this person is in


Yeah and people are routinely transported in cages...

in the article he said he also didnt know if it was a python.

of course it is totally possible there was someone in a cage against their will in the car.

seems strange that a person driving around with someone caged wouldnt welcome others into the situation.

and of course we never know how we are going to react if you legit think you see a person in the car you do something. like right now. not saying beat ass but cause a scene. call the cops.

seems too weird to me.

who knows

Does seem strange but then so many people ignore details and want to stay uninvolved. I can see where this activity would go on in almost plain sight and be ignored.

it has to go on somewhere.
sure

i still feel like he didnt see what he thought i saw or there is an explanation besides someone against their will.

no idea.
i do know it is very odd that a person would expose themselves like that.

seems like too big of a risk.

what was he going to do if Reddick saw something and decided to make the call or act and do something?
just going to kill Reddick?
take the pinch?

seems like a huge risk. why take it?

you have someone in a cage and the only moment you have to transport them is when you are going to bring other people and their # in the car???
dont know about that

Redick is now backtracking on his initial statement and is now saying that there may not have been a caged person in the first place.

How do you mistake a head with a blonde ponytail for something else?


The driver then lifted the blanket, except he did it "towards the window ... so we couldn't see 'cause we were on the sidewalk," according to Redick. And as the driver walks back to his front seat, assuring his passengers there is nothing in the trunk, "a head pops up."

"This is not funny," Redick explains after Bamba, his guest, laughs. "There's a back of a female head ... blonde hair, there's a ponytail, and based on the size of the box or cage that this person is in, it's either, like, a very small human, or a child."

There is a large screwed up part of our society. People sometimes do things because they have to, not because they want to when better sense says no.

People who run organizations doing these thing have much power.

Still doesn't mean it is true but too weird doesn't rule it out.

I'm inclined to agree with TinySickTears that it would seem strange and counterintuitive to expose yourself like that to potential witnesses. But it's also true that a lot of bold and evil criminal acts are carried out in plain view every day. People snatch children off the street. People enter banks with the intention of robbing them.

From a conspiracy angle, and in my personal opinion, I find it deeply troubling that JJ is now walking back his story. After I read this article I of course listened to the segment in his podcast. To me, he seemed to be recounting exactly what he experienced and had clearly given it more than a little consideration. His wife seemed to be extremely convinced to the point of not letting it go and informing the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

This is how our society works.

Perhaps they were threatened to be sued for defamation by the cab company ? They had no concrete evidence but their word.. and the cab driver denies it.

Puts him in a pinch if that’s the case... and I can understand the retraction.

I believe they did see a human... but no evidence.. no investigation 🤷🏻‍♀️

Hmm, yes. That is just as likely, if not more so.

As we all know then, whether something serious happened here or not, this will be relegated to the back pages before long.

And we will all move on to the next.

Check, please.

Bull. Ever heard of texting? Pretty sure if your lady is with you, she has her phone. You could feign normal while texting about the weird smell, cage, & your possible plan as THE MAN to handle it. During these texts, you could also advise your wife and child on what you expect them to do to make sure they're out of the way when the altercation begins.

You must really suck at thinking on your feet, dude. That or you're a bitch made beta-male.

Having a hard time buying this, do most people in the midst of kidnapping children pick up basket ball stars at the same time??

Ahhh, you have a point. You're clearly a Boondock Saint, judging by your comment you've probably saved a few hundred lives just in your spare time.

I stand corrected.

I've got to agree with this, there was no need to 'be a hero', all he had to do was ask the driver to pull over while they all popped into a store or something, and wait for 5 minutes while phoning 911 in the safety of the store.
It's exactly what I thought when I first read the OP, get out of the car, think of some excuse for the driver to wait, then phone the cops.
Hardly rocket science is it, but people keep defending their man who meekly chose inaction and lost a chance for a possible kidnap victim to be saved.

Not much use calling the cops after the guy drove away.


Not much use? Are you really this stupid?

All these services keep tabs on their drivers. If the guy was abducting people I'm sure calling the cops is a pretty great idea considering they can find out the drivers whereabouts.

It's funny how everyone behind a keyboard would have turned into Liam Neeson from taken in the same situation.
