Abandoned toddler found in K-Mart parking lot after Black Friday sale

A two-year-old boy was found abandoned in a Springfield, Massachusetts K-Mart store’s parking lot late Friday night. According to Springfield’s WWLP News 22, the boy was left in 34-year-old Anthony Perry’s Nissan Venza while Perry went into the store to buy a 51-inch television.

Police found the boy sleeping in the car at about 1:30 a.m. after passersby called to report the abandonment. Perry had returned home with his new television hours earlier without ever reporting the child missing.

Springfield Police Captain Cheryl Claprood told WWLP that Perry denied abandoning the boy, saying that the child had gotten away from him in the store. The toddler’s mother, Perry’s girlfriend, left the boy in Perry’s care while she went to work.





The boy was taken to a hospital and checked out. The Department of Family and Children’s Services will decide what happens to him next.

Police offered no explanation as to how Perry returned home without his car.

4. Right -- I can understand him leaving the boy in the car

And getting in trouble for that, while he was in the store, but it doesn't say that.

11. It's a really big TV. It probably wouldn't fit in his car.

7. My guess

Big TV doesn't fit in car. Call's friend. "Hey, I got this big TV but it doesn't fit in my car." Friend comes with bigger car to get TV home. Completely forgets that there was a kid there.

5. I bet he was drunk or on drugs. Called a friend

to pick him up because he knew the tv wouldn't fit in his car. Got home with the tv, forgot his car and the child, and proceeded to set up his new tv.

12. Puleeze! He got a great deal on a really big TV!!

It doesn't matter that his buddy with the big van or pick-me-up truck drove him home. And the kid in the car was alright. So let it go.

The important thing is that he didn't get shot, or trampled to death, or punched out to get this really great price on this really big, big, big televisionary set. It gets all the channels in both two and three Dee. But that really doesn't matter as long as it displays the FOX bimbos in high resolution.

Didn't I say that the kid was okay when they found him still sleeping in the middle of the night?

No problem. Black Friday's just another shopping day.

Move along, folks. Move along.

Nota bene: Extreme

In a republican paradise, that's the important part.
