...I'm not saying I might not lose my composure if something like that happened... but what mother makes a break for it leaving her toddler in the arms of a mugger with a knife?!?!
yea, and she drops her kid and runs leaving the kid behind
I saw the mother's strategy as brilliant. She drew the attacker away from her daughter, thus minimizing the potential risk to the youngster.
IMO.....No mother would ever abandon her young in the throws of a life threatening situation not even an animal............Coward.....live with that.
You betcha......All she had to do was give him the darn purse.....instead she ran away leaving her child behind........are you kiddin' me.
Get off the "X"................Sure she thought of that one.
I guess that's where we differ, as I think the risk of the girl being killed/injured INCREASED exponentially. And since when did the wounded-mama-bird technique involve trying to lock yourself in a building with your child (assumedly) still outside? Not arguing with you, I understand you're just giving her the benefit of the doubt. I usually do, but here I just don't buy it.
She left her child not once, but twice.
The child goes running after her mother, then the mother makes a run for the store, again, without her child.
The only thing that kept this child from getting hurt is the fact that this criminal had no interest in the child, luckily.
And yet she wouldn't give up the purse..........worst Coward is a mother abandoning a child....IMO.
