Dad shoots son after teen caught shoplifting
Correctional Officer Accused Of Shooting Son After Shoplifting Arrest
A prison guard from Queens allegedly shot his teenage son after he was busted shoplifting from a Home Depot in Long Island City. Quasaun Smalls (17) decided he needed some drill bits from Home Depot, but didn’t quite have the coin required for their purchase. So in his teenage wisdom, he used the ol’ 5 finger discount. This resulted in a desk appearance ticket and the po-po sent him on his merry way.
When Quasaun got home, his Daddy Dearest Robert Smalls (39) was beyond furious. Apparently Smalls thought his son should have gotten jail time for pinching a few drill bits, rather than just a ticket. A fight broke out, and Robert shot his son with a 9mm handgun. Neighbours say they heard yelling and a gunshot, but probably put it down to background noise associated with living in New York.
Dad called 911 himself (that’s something) and Quasaun was rushed to hospital in a stable condition. He’s expected to make a complete recovery. Dad was charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. I presume that means he was supposed to turn in his gun at the end of his shift at the jailhouse, and hadn’t.
It would have been a hell of a lot easier to march young Quasaun down to the Home Depot and apologise over the PA system for stealing merchandise, driving up the costs of the merchandise and causing the need to increase security at the shop.
LaQuinta Latrice Kemp
HPD: Shoplifting mom abandons 1-year-old in Macy’s to flee police:
Police in Houston, Texas arrested LaQuinta Latrice Kemp after she fled a Macy’s after allegedly being caught shoplifting. While making her escape police say that she hit a store employee and left a stroller behind that contained her 1-year-old son. Did I mention that this took place on Christmas Eve. I guess she should have gotten her Christmas shoplifting done early but I’m guessing she wasn’t looking for presents for others. At least she’s gone upscale from most of the shoplifting stories we get.
And while I’m at it what the hell kind of name is LaQuinta? Does she have siblings named Red Roof and Motel 6? Maybe she was named after where she was conceived.
Not surprisingly she has a previous record for burglary. She can now add a charge of child abandonment to her resume.
Thanks to Laura for the tip.
Police: Shoplifting Mom Runs Away, Leaves Baby Behind
37-year-old Janita Mareau is a despicable piece of shit. While she’s not guilty of physically abusing her children, she is guilty of training them to become the same worthless piece of garbage that she is – which, in and of itself, is a form of abuse.
Moreau took her children into a Walmart store for a little round of shoplifting. I guess this is the part where I need to tell you that 11 and 13 year old children that were helping her pocket the merchandise. The family was seen by store security attempting to smuggle the unpaid for items out of the store in a diaper bad and a stroller with a baby inside.
As the bandits attempted to leave the store, they were accosted by security. Moreau and her youngsters took off back into the store in hopes to escape being hauled off to the pokey. In their haste they forgot one important item…the 6-month-old baby in the stroller. I guess her freedom was more important than her infant.
Moreau faces charges of petty theft and neglect without great harm. Her children were released to the baby’s father (he must be so proud).
Thanks go to Andrea for this tip.
Police say woman stripped to avoid arrest:
Police in Sheboygan, Wisconsin tried arresting 35-year-old Julia E. Laack for allegedly shoplifting some beef jerky and a lighter. When police came to her home to arrest her she began screaming and swearing at her three children. She blamed one of her teen kids and threatened to beat them. When police tried to arrest her she stripped down to her underwear and told them they couldn’t arrest her because she would be naked soon.
Police disagreed and tried to arrest her. She spit at the police and kicked one of them in the groin. When they finally got her in the car she pressed ham against the window and told a female officer that her children were going to die.
Did I mention that Laack had a BAC of 0.112? You know when you’re drinking like that you have to have beef jerky and smokes.
Mom Accused Of Leaving Baby In Hot Car To Go Shoplifting:
Today’s kids in a hot car story comes to us from the wilds of West Virginia where they can never identify bodies because no has any teeth and they all have the same DNA. (I kid.)
Anyway, in Wierton, WV 23-year-old Elizabeth Marie Lancaster was arrested for leaving her 9-month-old in the car while she went into Wally World. That’s WalMart by the way. The car was running and the windows were down but it was 85F degrees out.
When Lancaster emerged from WalMart she told police she was only in there for a few seconds but police say she was in there for 20 minutes. Police also say that she was in possession of two bags of stolen merchandise from the store.
I wish in these kind of article they would list what she was stealing because I bet there wasn’t much for the kid.
Deputies: Mom taught kids how to steal:
Not only did Latoya Bradley, of Lehigh Acres, Florida, teach one of her kids how to shoplift using a baby stroller but when the kid got caught the birth organism tried to take off leaving her four kids behind.
My dad always threatened to leave me at the store but not because of shoplifting.
Thanks to LadyJade for the tip.
Police: Shoplifting mother caught with parenting book:
37-year-old Callie Rough of Oxford, Ohio was caught shoplifting with her two kids in tow. One of the items she allegedly took was a book entitled “101 Ways to Be a Great Mom.”
Maybe she should have thumbed through it before trying to take it from the store.
Man allegedly leaves daughter in cold:
Yet another heartwarming Christmas time tale, this time from Kirksville, Missouri.
28 year old Christopher Guthrie of Moberly, Missouri was arrested in WalMart for trying to shoplift. He got into a scuffle with store security when they apprehended him. It was at that time that they discovered he had left his young daughter in the car in sub zero temperatures. Police had to use the Taser on Guthrie as well. And when they searched him they found a baggie with Xanax in it.
I bet he wasn’t even stealing a present for his daughter.
