Skip to comments.Man accused of leaving 2-year-old to buy 51-inch TV

There is nothing wrong with Black Friday. Save for the fact that it seems to bring out behaviors that may well have perplexed Neanderthals. One example might be that of a man who pulled a gun on a line-cutter at a Sears in San Antonio, Texas.
Another might be the following joyous, spirit-lifting tale from Springfield, Mass.
According to police, 34-year-old Anthony Perry was very much excited by a 51-inch TV at his local K-Mart.
He allegedly drove to the mall at around 1:30 a.m., his girlfriend's 2-year-old in tow.
As WWLP News tells it, the police claim Perry then bought the TV, didn't go back to his car, and left the 2-year-old inside it.

Samsung LED, 1080P?
It better be 3D.
The creep got the TV home by another means. He never went back to his car and never missed the 2 year old nor did he report the child missing!
It cracks me up that the union knuckledraggers actually thought that they could stop these people from shopping today. LOL! Morons!
Doubtless meant as a snub to said “girlfriend” — but why make the toddler suffer? Good grief.
Barack Obama would have wanted the political capital of a “best ever black Friday” so perhaps the efforts were just token.
IIRC the line cutter had hit someone. That will get a gun pulled on you any time of the year.
Priorities people. We need to keep our priorities straight in the state of Øbomination.
News flash for Mr Matyszczyk.
The fellow in Texas was justified.
I agree 100%. Barry uses the union like a bunch of tools. You can bet he was hoping for a huge “black Friday”. The union knuckledraggers put on a show for their comrades in the state controlled “media” who ate it up today.
Oh, I doubt it was anything more than the idiot realizing (after he purchased the TV) that it would be too big to fit in his car. So, what else was he to do? Call a friend, haul it home, then come back for the car later...the fact that the car contained a “kid” probably didn’t even factor into the equation.
and he didn’t just hit someone, he punched a guy in the face. that guy then pulled his gun on the assailant.
That’s racist :).
Immature mother possibly with low self esteem/worth to make the decision to allow her young child to leave with this guy. Shame on her as well.
The man who “pulled” the gun was first punched in the face. As to the kid. I would not leave a child for a 51 inch TV. Now a 65 inch 3-D LCD, thats another matter.
FR headlines are becoming unreadable.
Think about it.

I understand that Christmas shopping in America has become a circus of idiots.
It is not too much of a stretch to think that some idiot left his two year old standing in his place in a line.
That is how I read the headline.
The mother of the child was working, and this cretin was supposed to be home with the toddler.
The above statement is BS. The gun was pulled because an idiot hit the permit holder in the face, the gun was not used because someone cut the line. Typical left wing BS.

Springfield, Massachusetts translation:
The live-in boyfriend of a welfare queen, who is working under the table, allegedly drove to the mall with a big wad of cash, at around 1:30 a.m., his girlfriend’s 2-year-old in tow...
He had no biological attachment to the child
I guess the free birth control and obamaphones weren’t enough?
All year long I do my best to avoid stores. Of course occasionally I have to go to the store to buy something that is needed and occasionally something that is wanted. And of course Crazy Frantic Shopper Season comes along and I will do my best to do without until it is over.
This sounds like the bigger mystery. How did he get a 51" TV home without his own car? Take a bus? Walk?
Here’s another example of poor phrasing. “He allegedly drove to the mall at around 1:30 a.m., his girlfriends 2-year-old in tow.”
Does this mean he dragged the kid behind the car?
I read it the same way. Figured the kid could crawl beneath everybody’s legs and get an edge on beating everybody to the best TV deal.
I have to admit, leaving a 2 year old to buy a TV on his own is probably a bit too much,....a 5 year old,...maybe....;^)
And to think I grew up seemingly half my childhood in a locked up pickup, with windows cracked, then when Mom/Dad got back, rode in the back of the pickup with the dog some 40 miles home to the ranch after we made our weekly grocery/supply run....by today’s standards we shouldn’t have ever made it...
Not to worry,..if he keeps driving around town in 1st gear, he’ll burn out his tranny. ;^)
Just another member of the voting American public.
Verbal mayhem is fun.
Did the two year old haggle a great deal before being left inside the TV?
Good thing it was a 51” model.
This whole article was a word-salad.
I went to Walmart about 10:00 a.m. yesterday, and it was almost empty of customers. I saw a couple of people buying large electronic items, but most were getting their usual groceries.
The two middle-aged Indian cashiers, Subhash and Satish, were standing by the National Enquirer rack gossipping in their native language when I showed up with my cart (and Pat).
“It is not too much of a stretch to think that some idiot left his two year old standing in his place in a line.”
English major here. Thought the same thing.
A friend of mine actually went to Walmart Thursday night to get a TV. She stood in line for 2 hrs along with 1000 others. She told me.....I thought the economy was bad but they were all buying TV’s. I told her.....you still don’t get it. If we are paying for their welfare/unemployment, food, and medical care they have more cash than we do to buy their iphone 5’s and 50 inch TV’s.
It's true. I had more entertainment dollars in high school, working a part-time job, than I do now, making a very good salary.

What thinking person would leave a 2-year-old to buy a television. At that age they don’t even have credit cards.
May be so..but this cretin didn't just begin to do stuff like this so she had warnings that he was unreliable. Imo.
If ‘black Friday’ is racist; then why did God make snow white?
