Bremen Police have a man in custody after the attempted abduction of a 7-year-old girl at a Walmart.
Brittney Baxter was in the toy aisle at the Walmart on Highway 27 when a man came up behind her and grabbed her, police said. The man put his hand over her mouth, but Brittney kicked, squirmed and made as much noise as possible before the man let go and ran off.
The incident was caught on store surveillance footage.

out of curiosity... any idea how much time he spent in prison for manslaughter?
He spent 4 years in prison.
I taught my children that if they were ever grabbed to bite, kick, gouge at eyes, and scream “You’re not my daddy, help!”
I always thought that the danger would be that good people would not be able to differentiate between an abduction and a parent dragging a misbehaving child outside.
I believe it was ‘involuntary’ manslaughter
For which 4 years can be a reasonable sentence.
I have done MANY stupid things in my life, any one of which could have gotten someone killed (probably myself) - but it was all through stupidity, not intention to harm.
Thankfully all that happened was me standing around with a dumb look on my face saying “OMG am I REALLY that stupid?”
(like the time I tried to check if my gas tank was empty by lighting a cig lighter to look inside- I still believe it was the intervention of a loving God that made only a small puff of flame shoot out- and not a full explosion of the fumes in the tank)
HOWEVER- you usually gotta be a real bad character to get a conviction for doing something stupid- as this incident now proves.
What was he planning to do? AND! Has he DONE IT BEFORE?
4 YEARS for manslaughter?
meanwhile, kimble schmitz (aka kimble dotcom) is facing 55 years for file sharing... in hong kong (?!)
Apparently, the mother wasn’t “that” close! Why in the world, people don’t keep close watch on their children is a mystery to me. What could be important than the safety of a child. This world, literally, crawls with filthy, predatory creeps!
“I have done MANY stupid things in my life, any one of which could have gotten someone killed (probably myself) - but it was all through stupidity, not intention to harm.”
Yes, I have also done the same things. It is a miracle I am alive considering my past. I try to show mercy on people with a spotted past, because of my own history.
I do not condemn him for having been in prison for a crime, but it sure tends to be an indicator at least there may be patterns. I am sure a lot of child predators that have been caught in the past have a reasonably clean police record.
I think that is an awesome way to do it. The child should be taught to say something like that.
We always had 2 rules:
1- You must always walk in front of us, and .....
2- You must always be where we can still see you.
I think she was on the next aisle. That’s not too far away, but it is definitely farther than I ever let my kids get away from me at that age. The man had been casing the toy dept for about 10 minutes, so she probably my guess is that she just stepped away for a brief moment. That’s just my guess. It doesn’t take long, does it?
“4 YEARS for manslaughter?”
I don’t know the details of that case, but manslaughter can be pretty broad. I know a man who was found guilty of “involuntary manslaughter”. He simply punched a man with his fist, and he died before he hit the ground.
That man who committed the crime is a dead family member of mine, but he had a history of being as “bad” as they get. He pulled out a man’s eye in one fight.
He had spent some time in jail awaiting his hearing, and they simply charged him with involuntary manslaughter and charged penalized him with “time served”, which was almost a year.
Don’t ask why he did it, don’t bother with a psych eval. Don’t bother charging him with “attempted” anything, had he succeeded he would have been guilty of far worse than kidnapping. Just build a big pile of wood, strap him to the top and light it on fire. Then all we have to do is sweep it up.
“”Authorities say Woods was on state probation under the Department of Corrections as part of a 2004 prison sentence for voluntary manslaughter, according to DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James. Woods then 17 was accused of shooting and killing his 61-year-old uncle, James Price, according to the indictment from October 2004.
Woods led authorities to his uncles body, which was buried in the backyard of his fathers home in Tucker. Woods father pleaded guilty to concealing a death.””
