Mom Chases and Rams Car of Daughter’s Abduction Suspect

I want this mom on my police force:

“During the chase, the girl’s mother spoke with police on her cellphone. At the time, she was apparently not aware that her daughter had been put out of the car less than half a block from where she’d been taken, according to The Albuquerque Journal.

’Albuquerque police Chief Ray Schultz said neighbors began yelling, which is what made the suspect push the child out of his car,’ reports KOAT TV.

Fleeing from the girl’s mother on Interstate 40, the suspect “tried to fake an exit on Carlisle Boulevard,” the newspaper reports, citing police spokesman Robert Gibbs. After they left the interstate, the mother succeeded in stopping the man’s car in southeast Albuquerque.

’She essentially pitted him,’ Gibbs said, referring to a police maneuver that involves ramming a car to stop a chase, The Journal reports.”

The full story also reports that another young girl had been abducted in that neighborhood last week, and was returned after being sexually assaulted. This quick-thinking, determined mom might very well have led police to the man who committed that crime.

Florida’s Shame, and Ours

Conspiracy theories are bad for civic life. So are conspiracies.
