There has been a 14 yr old kid arrested in the Orlando, Florida area for finding a 3 yr old girl wandering the aisles of The Burlington Coat Factory outlet in Orlando, Florida.

This kid according to the repots was trying to do the right thing but the fact he left the store with her wasn't wise.

Procedure for when finding what you suspect is an abandoned kid :
1. Get a store employee's attention.
2. Walk with the employee to the kid in question.
3. Take temporary custody of the kid and escort kid to store security.
4. Have store security alert a manager or someone in charge. (Never leave anyone alone with store security, wait there with the employee and guard and have the employee get a manager or someone in charge).
5. Have the manager or person in charge call law enforcement Wait at the desk for cops to show.
6. (only applicable if a public address system is available) Have the manager or person in charge make an announcement over the PA system.
7. Do not, under any circumstance take it upon yourself to remove the child from the inside of the store.
8. Answer any and all questions posed to you by either the manager or person in charge, law enforcement only and exclusively. Be polite, courteous and kind, do not ever raise your voice or become agitated.
9. Ask the kid what is thier favourite colour, tv show and toy. Only a parent would know this. (For you parents that have no clue ask your kids and learn).

If the above is clearly not possible then get an employee or manager to take temporary custody of the kid if you fear being accused of trying to take a kid and fear arrest.

It's come to a point where people are so scared of pedophiles that doing the right thing is slowly becoming a criminal act. I hope this kids record is erased and expunged. Typically I'm against record expungement but this case warrants it.

Please tell me this is a hoax. Guess that city needs revenue badly.

Unfortunately in this case I wish it was but it is not.

Excuse me?

I don't believe this happened.

It didn't happen, right?

Well, this world is even sicker than I thought.

What this kind 14 yr old has learnt from this is:

Do not help anyone in distress.

This is sad and it is shocking, and how could a 14 yr old, still a minor, know all the rules?

Most adults wouldn't even know all the rules.

Don't they arrest parents in the USA
for child abuse and/or neglect?

What happened to the parents that did not look after their child in the first place? Just checking

That is another whole can of worms.

I would like to know what is happening to the 14 year old now, because you can bet he/she is traumatised.

Moral of the story
ont give a SHTF about others.
This is very bad. Look at the arresting officer's record. He is against blacks.

The 14yearold's life is pretty much ruined now.

If he does time in prison, he'll be beaten to within an inch of his life or killed. Probably raped too.

Did the germans of the 30s think of nazis the way we think of nazis today, or did they think of them the way we think of police today?

When will we finally realize that "police" is a bad word just like "nazi," and we need to do something to stop these people?

To look or to touch are forbidden activities in society of psychopaths.

In such society no healthy actions are allowed.

And then, some people are shocked when a person dying on the sidewalk is helped by no one. Because it is very dangerous to stop and be found near the one in distress.

(excerpt from poem Hugging Children)

Children run in the streets

And call their

Frantic parents

Parents are hiding and

Intentionally speak

In Tongues

Crowded within buildings

Panicking, they await for

Children to make the breach

New children walk


Police opens fire

And strafes

Necks and heads

Police units

Are concentrated around

The most important institutions

The attack is ongoing

Biological survival of human species

Is threatened

Black mummies

Lie melted with


Policemen sleeves are


Hugging children


Await death

what a sad situation. I think the kid was genuinely trying to help. He may have asked the little girl "Where's your mom?" and the girl could have replied "she left" since she didn't see her or could be the type of mom (probably is since she wasn't watching her) who constantly tells the kid to "be good" or I'm leaving you here. I have heard mom's say that tooo many times so I know they do say that.

Just last week, I was in a Wal-mart and saw a toddler all alone. I don't know how old he was but he had a diaper sticking out of his pants and was sort of waddling to the side as he ran so he had to be young. I first thought the lady behind him was his mom but she walked off to someone else. I watched and he ran down LONG isles back and forth and no one ever came looking for him. Over the course of about 3-4 minutes I never saw anyone.

On top of that, once I was in wal-mart and heard this woman yelling from 1/2 way across the store ( I kid you not!) for her child. She screamed "Where are you?" "When I find you I'm gonna beat the daylights outta you", etc. Everyone was like wtf? Damn she loud!
