    OAKLAND, Calif. — A 21-year-old man Oakland police say threw a toddler in front of a moving car is in custody after being arrested by an off-duty police officer.

    Police say the officer saw the man shake the 18-month girl and throw her into oncoming traffic around 5:39 p.m. Saturday.

    The child was hit by a car, but police say she escaped serious injury. She was taken to a hospital, where her condition is unknown.

    After stopping to give aid to the little girl, the officer pursued the man, finding him scuffling with several motorists who had stopped to help.

    When on-duty police officers arrived, they subdued the man with a Taser stun gun.

    I suppose drugs or alcohol were a factor in this. Really despicable. Maybe they can drop him from an overpass as punishment.

    This is where we're supposed to say that we think throwing children in front on oncoming trafffic is a bad thing, right?

    Okay, throwing children in front oncoming traffic is a bad thing.

    I'm like totally outraged.

    yawn!

    It's LOCAL stories like these, stories that happened every day, but LOCAL stories that we'd probably never have heard about before the media became a closely held monopoly, that are making most of us nuts, ya know.

    Yes, there are fruitloops.

    Yes they do terrible things.

    But despite our impression, thanks to the media, these are basically highly rare and unusual events.

    editec has a point, bones. What are we supposed to say or do about this? Apart from feeling stressed and afraid?

    Yanno, there are some seriously weird and sickening crimes committed in Cleveland. Occassionally, one is so weird it'd prolly draw interest on USMB....but what purpose is there in posting it? The criminal has been caught, the victims and their families are getting whatever aid is possible, etc. It's over.

    The only possible comment I can think to make here is that Tank is an asshole for assuming the perp was Black.....and even if he was, he ain't human, so who cares what color he is?
