12-Year-Old Boys Arrested for Allegedly Dropping Shopping Cart on NYC Mother

Two 12-year-old boys were in police custody after allegedly dropping a shopping cart four stories onto a New York City mother who was out buying Halloween candy for underprivileged children. Marion Salmon Hedges, a wealthy Manhattan real-estate agent, was struck in the head by the falling cart on Sunday while walking outside a Target store with her 14-year-old son in East Harlem, the New York Post reports. Gaurav Patel, a doctor who witnessed the incident, performed CPR on Hedges, who was later transported to Harlem Hospital where she remains in a medically-induced coma. "We heard a little boy just screaming," Patel's wife, Susan Mahoney, told the newspaper. "Guarav said she was [in cardiac arrest] for about a minute. He did chest compressions, and she became responsive." The two young suspects were telling jokes and laughing with each other after they were taken into custody, police sources told the newspaper. "They were just doing it for fun," one law enforcement source said of the alleged crime.

Prayers for this poor woman. A cardiac arrest on the scene and now in a coma? She is terribly ill. I will also say a prayer for her 14 year old son who witnessed this tragedy. I have the feeling he will remember it all his life. So sad.

Prayers up for Mrs Hedges and her family. May God grant them His Strength during this senseless trial and heal her in Christ’s name.
Prayers up for the boys who did this to her. May they realize their error and the pain of their separation from His way.
What a terrible tragedy...

My sister made the mistake of visiting our old neighborhood in Washington Heights, Manhattan. From a six story apartment window, a member of the Amish community dropped a potted plant,and a bottle at her. Such welcoming loving folk.

Huh?

Two 12-year-old boys dropped a shopping cart four stories onto a mother who was walking with her 14-year-old son.

Afterwards they laughed and joked about it.

Girls have done the same thing. But then I guess you’d like to cap young girls in the back of the head? Or is it a boys exclusive club?

Exactly right.

Don’t want to be mugged, raped or murdered in New York? Then stay out of Harlem or anywhere else with an inner-city feral population.

In this particlar case, yes, it appears to be.

But that's not really relevant to this story.

Your following post:
“Girls have done the same thing. But then I guess you’d like to cap young girls in the back of the head? Or is it a boys exclusive club?”
clearly wins the Best In Show Prize at the Straw Dogs Annual Open Show.

Were those criminals paraded through the streets of their neighborhood in an open cart, then taken to the nearest park to be hanged by the neck from light poles until they were dead, such crimes and the ghetto entitlement mentality it springs from might not be so common.

PS Let the animals hang for 24 hours.

Then incinerate the remains.

A society which subsidizes the mass production of bastards gets what it pays for.

A society which publicly executes the hopelessly violent not only has fewer cases of such mindless violence, it actively tells such animals-in-the making that such behavior will result in the death of the offenders.

As for your inane sex differentiation argument, I can only say that it makes no difference what the sex, race or ethnicity of the humanoid animal - all are essentially beyond societal tolerance and must be killed as soon as they ID themselves by acting out such intolerable behavior.

I agree with that comment 100%. Too bad society does not support that style thinking. Frankly were it my mom, or sister, they would not have to worry about their trial.

I guess it's a brand new store. This Google Street View shows it still under construction. You can exit the street view and see that the roof is the top floor of the parking garage, presumably dedicated to the Target store. It looks like a tony area.

My Hispanic friend would probably gasp and exclaim, “Where are their fathers?” if she heard about this. What shame they have brought to their families.

Praying for the victim.

“A society which subsidizes the mass production of bastards gets what it pays for.”

I like that line. I also phrase it as supply & demand: If you create an artificial unlimited demand for uneducated unemployable illegitimate children, don’t be surprised you get an unlimited supply of them.

My post did not say anything about boys versus girls. A person twelve years old may not understand all the nuances and finesse of right versus wrong, but I 100% guarantee you they were fully aware that what they were doing was a danger, and if you read the report, you will find that even after finding out the woman was hit and rendered comatose, they were giggling about it.

At that point, to coin a Roman turn of phrase, they are revealed as wolves, and should be treated as wolves are.

While not long ago, you would be excoriated for pointing out this truth, it's gotten so bad now that young people joke about "all you gotta do is [make a baby], then you get the buck [welfare]."

It's free, just swipe your EBT [Warning: Explicit] - the EBT is the new Electronic Benefits Transfer card, a debit card, essentially, for welfare bens and foodstamps - now conveniently accepted at fast food joints, convenience stores and taco trucks!

You really have to watch this video through to believe it:

YouTube synopisis:

Keywanda is having the time of her life. Her job is raising her family of 10 children while dealing with the drama and stress of the children's fathers. Thanks to the great state of California, Keywanda can support her lifestyle of having fun, getting "Turnt Up" and the kids can even get to eat from time to time.

No, the poor kid was walking with his mom when two Harlem boys dropped a shopping cart on her.
