The video above is alarming. It shows a crime committed in the Bronx, New York earlier this week where a man took a running start to knock a woman and steal her cellphone. What makes it worse is that the woman was carrying a baby at the time.
This video look awfully heartless. But as if this was bad enough the perpetrator of this crime, after he was arrested, apologized telling reporters “I didn’t see the baby.”
Really? Seeing the baby would have made a difference? Running at and violently knocking down a defenseless person is ok if there is no baby involved? And for what? A cellphone that’s trackable and will get you caught?
The stupidity of this act and the rationalization of the perpetrator are galling. Sad that this is the world we live in.
