So I'm sure many have seen the headline. I'm going to say right away there is no justification for committing the crime - there is no "you asked for
it" I am going to defend. But I want to question a few things and see the repsonses.
A cruel thug ripped a $400 gold chain off the neck of a 3-year-old boy who was sitting in his stroller and being pushed by his mom in
Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law-enforcement sources said
Question #1) Why were the parents out in Bed-Stuy walking around with their three year old @ 11:45 pm? Yes, they were doing laundry, but taking a 3
year old with several family members to the laundry mat @ 11:45 pm? Shouldn't he have been in bed sleeping with (one) of the family members watching
Question #2) Why is a three year old wearing a $400 gold necklace? I know it was a gift, but really?
Question #3) Is it safe to say that walking around a dangerous neighborhood @ 11:45 pm wearing bling heightens your chances of getting robbed?
Question #4) Are these parents guity of neglect?
Some neighbors in this tough neighborhood had this to say:
“Don’t walk around with your child strapped in a stroller wearing a $400 gold chain!” fumed a 41-year-old mom who lives nearby
“I have plenty of stuff myself, but I don’t put them on and go outside,” added Patricio Gonzalez, who manages a nearby deli. “I don’t
want to get killed.”
If you chum the water, attract a bunch of great whites and then jump in, what are your expectations?
Is this a fair analogy? Again, not saying they asked for it, but certainly they made an easy target.
