In a disgusting new low, two criminals steal from tot sitting in his stroller (Brooklyn, NY)
NY Post ^ | 7/14/12 | JAMIE SCHRAM and DOUGLAS MONTERO

Posted on 07/14/2012 6:11:27 AM PDT by jimbo123

Things are getting so rough in the Big Apple that even toddlers are getting mugged.

A cruel thug ripped a $400 gold chain off the neck of a 3-year-old boy who was sitting in his stroller and being pushed by his mom in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law-enforcement sources said.

The crook and an accomplice attacked tot Harvey Hernandez in the lobby of his family’s Malcolm X Boulevard apartment building at 11:45 p.m. after following him, his teenage brother and mom Riyana Guerrero home from a Laundromat.

“I was screaming ‘Let go of my baby! Let go of my baby!’” the mom told The Post in Spanish yesterday.

“[The man] didn’t say anything — he just looked at us and laughed, almost mocking us.

“How could he do this to a helpless little baby!”

“$400 gold keychain stolen from a 3 year old on Malcolm X Boulevard...

At 11:45pm in the apartment building’s lobby. Yup.

Was she talking about the $400 chain or her baby?

What doesn’t this story have?

A couple of shaved apes mugging a three year old.

A three year old with a $400 gold chain.

A three year old still in a stroller.

A three year old out at 11:45 pm.

Malcolm X Boulevard.

A non-english speaker.

What more could you ask for?

That was my first reaction until I read the full article.

“The chain was a gift from Harvey’s godparents for his baptism. It has a small medallion on it with the image of hands holding a child.”

The mom said her 13-year-old son was “traumatized’’ to the point where he’s afraid to go outside.

How about next time don't put a gold chain on his neck and walk him down Malcom X. Blvd. And while you're at it, turn in your EBT card.

At first I figured that the scumbags stole a bag of cookies from the kid.

I am not surprised that 2 thugs would steal from a 3 year old but I am shocked that the mother put a gold chain on the kid and then took him out late a night!

I generally try to avoid being seen wearing $400 gold jewelry on Malcolm X Boulevard at 11:15 PM at night. And I'm a 6'3", 200 pound guy.

Mom is allowed to vote, which is a big reason why New York is doomed. (And the entire county is probably doomed. We're really producing an idiocracy.)

““I didn’t care about the gold; I was just worried about my [kids],” Guerrero said. “It was horrible. I don’t feel safe going out into the street now.””

Cheap lesson learned.

Family safe.

We don’t need to go Obama and make a big moulage out of this, if I may mix politics, metaphors and Barney Fife.

I’m pretty tired of these poor oppressed people and their toys and trinkets that I can’t afford. Not that I would waste money on crap like that anyway.

$400 would buy me a new garage door.

You: How about at least reading the article before pronouncing judgment?

The article states more than once that the mother was walking her 2 kids on Malcolm X Blvd and the thugs followed here home into the lobby. Next time, try your own advise - before playing that old liberal refrain against "pronouncing judgment!"

I remember reading of a gang shootout where one gang member grabbed an 8 month pregnant woman and used her for a shield. I remember reading the police were horrified that the woman was shot through her abdomen several times.

Non humans with no concern for humanity. It is all about what is owed to them and damned anyone who stands in their way.

LOL. WTF indeed.

“The article states more than once that the mother was walking her 2 kids on Malcolm X Blvd and the thugs followed here home into the lobby.”

Yes indeed, it was important for the article to say it more than once, wasn’t it?

I’m betting most of the comments here would not have been posted if they had read the article first.

Another poster caught that, too.

“Next time, try your own advise - before playing that old liberal refrain against “pronouncing judgment!””

LOL, I am a classical liberal, for/to whom that applies MOST.

Another poster here ASSUMES to the OP’s defense that if more relevant info were at the article, it would have been included in his post - LMFAO!

Remember to always just read just the headlines and the first couple of paragraphs. They tell you all you need to know!

LOL!

I don’t feel safe going out into the street now.

You're not safe going out into the street, Ms. Guerrero. If you previously "felt" safe, you were delusional. If you lived in an American state, like North Carolina, you could get a gun to help protect your family and others, assuming you're a citizen, a non-felon, and all that.

Meanwhile, you can thank Mayor Bloomberg for protecting your children from trans-fats and large-size sugared soda beverages.

“Did the 3 year old have an earing (sic) and tattoo as well?”

Why not check out what the 3 year old looks like at the article?

Some of the posts here are quite racial.

Why assume the attack wasn’t racial?

I think we might be being played by Big Media and perhaps a couple of the posters here.

That must have been one big medallion for $400. The grandparents must not like the mama or they’d have invested in a washer/dryer for all the diapers and baby clothes she’ll be needing to clean rather than have her and grandbaby going to the laundry where thugs hang out. Though I suspect someone is lying about the price since I found nothing online coming anywhere close to $400 and most are less than $100.

So the mother said to herself:

"You know what I'm going to do. I know it's almost midnight, and this is a high crime area. But I'm going to put on $400 gold chain around the neck of my 3 year old, and take him/her out." Wasn't that a great idea?

God bless my late mother. I think back to the pretty little smocked dresses she kept from my babyhood....I don’t even want to think of how she would have reacted to the idea of toddlers wearing gold chains.

Not sure what that means, but as to your apparent puzzlement at some of the comments here:

Do you really see no reason why people are outraged that this woman chooses to put her child in danger by taking him into the street at a time of night that should be about 4 1/2 hours past a 3-year-old’s bedtime?

Do you really see no reason why posters are astounded that a toddler is wearing jewelry that costs so much money, when his family is living in the ghetto?

I really do not think we are being unreasonable to expect a mother to exercise common sense.

Who in their right mind puts any kind of chain on a 3 year old’s neck, let alone an expensive one? Besides leaving you and your kid open to being robbed or physically accosted, you put him/her in the position of strangling themselves if it gets caught on something. Dumb a$$es.

Here's my judgement: Putting a gold chain around your baby's neck and walking around Bed-Stuy late at night is like putting a bleeding tuna around his neck and swimming around the Great Barrier Reef.
