    I was shopping yesterday in Walmart when looking on the shelf for a item my 6 year old and 9 month old were in the buggy I turned around and some Guy had my 9 month old by the arm I right off the bat asked wth are you doing he took off I ha e been thinking all day what would have happened if he pulled a weapon before I looked up would I had a chance to draw mine to stop him. What risk would my kids been in, there are a lot of what ifs. But what if the situation went bad?

    A male stranger had his hand on your kid and all you did was question him? That would not have been my immediate response.

    What Horkos said. More importantly, I'm thinkin' your situational awareness may need some work. How did this guy (who might have left in a body bag if it was my kid) get close enough to your kid to have his hand(s) on him/her and you not know it?

    What did you do? Did you get security to see if the guy was recognizable on any of the recordings? ...You did report this, right?

    So even with the broken OP English, if I understand what you stated. A man try to abduct your child and all you did was question him? Please expound on the altercation so we may have a better under standing.

  7. Wow, you guys are all questioning this guy pretty hard for not "doing more". Maybe, just maybe, he was looking for other perps and checking the 9 month old out for injuries. Remember, once the guy turns and walks away, he's no longer a threat so drawing on him would be illegal. He also said the guy took off so pursuing him would mean leaving the 2 kids unattended.

  8. He reallly hasn't provided enough information.

    What if a pig had wings? What if obama was white.?What could the perp possibly gain in the middle of wall mart to pull a gun on you and take your child. Would you care to explain yourself a little better?

    I would have to agree, with out being there how can you say what you would do in a situation when you aren't there. Now for the fact that he needs to be more aware of his surroundings i agree with.
