    MN - Mother thought more of her car than her child

    Minnesota Driver Takes Off with Mom, Baby on Hood of Car

    ST. PAUL, Minn. A woman holding her 4-month-old baby allegedly threw herself on the hood of her car to stop an ex-boyfriend from taking it, and stayed there for a wild 1 1/2-mile ride, police said.
    The driver drove through a red light, swerved through traffic and jumped a curb with the woman and child still on the hood before police pulled the car over and arrested both adults. The baby was put into protective custody.
    Police said neither the baby nor the 26-year-old mother were injured. The adults, including the 23-year-old former boyfriend, had not been charged Thursday morning.
    The arrests came less than five hours after the mother had been released from jail on a different matter.
    "It's very concerning behavior when children are used as leverage in domestic disputes,"said Cmdr. Shari Gray, who oversees the police department's family violence unit. "It's just not acceptable for any parent to put a child in that situation and for the driver to continue driving knowing there is a baby on the hood."

    More from the article;

    "She really needs that car to get back and forth to school," Bierman said. "She's a very quiet, nice girl. She gets up, takes the kids to day care, goes to school, comes home and cooks dinner for her kids, and then goes to sleep."

    well its cheaper to have another kid than get a new car....besides she was angry and you cant expect a mother to think of her kids safety when she is upset.

    all of the above is sarcasm.

    Along with the classes she is taking maybe she can include a couple on parenting, logic, and compassion. Geesh, that poor little baby.
