The father, Anthony Pettiford, said Monday he was headed home from a family gathering when he stopped to buy some gum. He was chatting with friends next to his car when someone jumped in the driver's seat and took off.

I'd be interested to know what the real story is. I'm guessing the kid got out of the car and wandered away while dear old dad was chatting with the boys and drinking a few brews inside.

Why wouldn’t it be true?

Apparently the ‘friends’ were witnesses.

“The friends said the car thief must have turned back to drop the boy off three blocks from the store, then left the child to fend for himself.”

The suspect and the car, a white 1995 Chrysler New Yorker, are still missing.


This is what makes the story ring true. Cops are out looking for the car. You can’t just ditch a car, leave a child and stand around in the cold on accident.

Where is the car? If the father was in any way involved in some other act, ie, hiding the car to cover up something else, in what time frame can you hide a car and how far can you get on foot after you do?

Or are you saying all the friends and witnesses are “in on it” too?

Ludicrous.

This story has no hole and is in no way ‘suspicious’. The only thing weird is those of you jumping on the “I don’t buy it” for no damned reason.

Why? WHY don’t you buy it and frankly who the hell are you to NOT buy it and post like this in the first place?

Uncut, right from the article: “Barbara Miller, spokeswoman for the Colorado Springs Police Department, said Monday it is unlikely Pettiford will face charges because he was standing next to his vehicle when the child was abducted.”

UNLIKELY Pettiford will face charges! ! ! !

His son was kidnapped and the nice female Storm Trooper won’t file criminal charges against the father of the kidnapped child! How generous the Master Race can be.

THis government trough feeder is suffering a bad case of Boulder Dementia Syndrome (BDS). As this FemiNazi’s statement makes clear, BDS is spreading.

Firing of Trough Feeders is the only known method of containing BDS. Start with this uniformed FemiNazi, then make sure whole agencies are shut down.

Why? Because it doesn’t make sense, that is why. Someone is not telling it truthfully. Now, that being said, it may not be that far off, but dollars to donuts, the father did NOT stop to buy gum and then stand around “chatting” with his fellow customers. Rolling papers and stand around smoking weed with his buds is more like it. Not paying attention when some opportunist jumps in and drives off with the car with the ignition running and a baby in there....or he dumps the child where he thinks the child will be taken care of along with a batch of supplies, then who knows? Gives the car to the loan shark he owes drug money to? I don’t know. I do know that the story doesn’t add up the way it was told. What prompts me to post this way? I am a lawyer who has heard a good but of bs in my day. If that offends you, and it probably offends most, so sorry.
