  1. Great job Mom great job doing what a mom and parent should do and be able to do, protecting their own. Imagine if she did not have the gun what could or might have happened. Of course calling the police after the fact would have been the solution for the cowards and weak sucks that think something else should protect us all.

  2. so it’s just assumed this guy is a pedo??? maybe, he was just trying to steal the car and didn’t realize there were kids in it…. very poor reporting here.

      • i’m not saying the guy is innocent… he got what he deserved… but there’s no history here that he’s a pedo… the reporting is poor… that’s it…

        • Agreed. There was a lack of continuity between being called a pedo in the headline and the content of the article.

  3. Ricky Wright should be charged with auto theft, attempted kidnapping, and multiple counts of endangering a child as well. Let’s cover all the bases.

  4. This guy needs to be placed into a cell 3×5 feet and left there to rot. Make it extremely cold for daytime and extremely hot for night times.
