I saw this video as I was enjoying my morning coffee and pretty much choked.
This is how it happens, man. This is why people turn into helicopter parents. Because we’re scared to death to let our 7-year-old browse the toy aisle alone.
Brittany Baxter can be seen on Walmart surveillance tape wandering the toy aisle while her mother shopped in the food section of the Georgia store. You see 25-year-old Thomas A. Woods stalking her and then, within seconds, SECONDS, he swoops into an aisle, grabs her and starts running for, presumably, an exit or a bathroom where he can do what he wants to do to her.
But Ms. Brittany aint’ going easy, folks. She kicks and screams so hard and loud that Woods is forced to let her go and run for the doors.
GO, BRITTANY, GO!!!!
As Chief Keith Pesnell tells the Associated Press, surveillance tape showed Woods leaving the store. Police put out an alert with a description of his car and, as you’ll see on the video below, they arrested him at his home about ten minutes away. He faces a charge of attempted kidnapping, at least. Screw that. I say chop off his Man Parts and lock him up for life, based solely on the videotape you’re about to see. It is absolutely terrifying. Which brings me to my question, do you allow your child to browse another part of the store or mall while you shop? If so, at what age did you start allowing that? Does this video make you think twice?
