Pregnant mom chases gun-toting teen who stole her iPhone
NY Post ^ | 10/21/12 | JENNIFER BAIN and DAN MANGAN

A gun-toting teenager grabbed a pregnant mom’s iPhone as she walked through a Williamsburg park with her 14-month-old daughter — so she handed the baby to a relative and took off after the punk.

“I don’t think a 16-year-old kid really knows how sleep-deprived mothers really are,’’ Rachel Massey, 36, an interior designer who lives in the neighborhood, said yesterday.

“I just reacted. I felt angry and violated, and I was probably in shock. I probably have weird hormones now. I should have felt more fear than I did.”

The chase took place Tuesday in trouble-plagued McCarren Park, the scene of four gunpoint robberies since Monday.

Massey, who moved here from Seattle seven years ago with her husband, was pushing little Olivia in a stroller with a balloon tied to it on their way home.

“The kid was walking . . . about 16 and wearing a black hooded sweat shirt. He was walking directly towards me,” she said. “I was like, ‘What does this kid want?’ ” Massey said, noting that “He seemed a bit nervous. He came at me with the gun out at his waist. It was pointed at my torso . . . I never had a gun pointed at me before.

Hey, Bloomie how are those tough NYC gun laws working out? And this happened in Mc Carren Park, the park that officially reopened last spring to so much ballyho after a $50 mil renovation.

I understand where she’s coming from but that might not have been a wise thing to do.

Bloomberg is supporting Scott Brown because Brown allegedly helped to fight against the right to carry.

Bloomberg: “But the bottom line is Scott Brown single-handedly stood up when we needed him to stop the right to carry on campus and in the streets of our city and our state and our country. And I said to him ‘You do that, and I’m going to support you.’”

You obviously don't understand.

Perhaps you missed this quote from the victim:

“I don’t think a 16-year-old kid really knows how sleep-deprived mothers really are,’’....

^^
It has been over 30 years since I gave birth to the last baby, but I remember those sleep-deprived days.

Perhaps you missed this quote from the victim:

Yes,I saw it.But that certainly doesn't mean that what she did was smart.I wonder if she's ever driven a car while sleep deprived.Driving while drowsy...chasing an armed man while drowsy,two activities that often end *very* badly.

You are right, of course. I was just going in a humorous mode, I suppose, because this incident ended well for her.

Sleep deprivation does not leave one thinking too clearly.

Sounds like a response Osama Obama would give.
