This Week's Sign of the Downfall
Grand Theft Bravado
This past January, Crystal Leary, of Beaverton, Ore., left her toddler in her running, unlocked car while she ran into a local meat market. But the thief lurking in the parking lot didn’t notice the kid, so he carjacked Crystal’s Honda Pilot. When the thief saw the child, he turned around, stormed into the meat market and demanded that Crystal remove her child, which she did. He then scolded her loudly, threatened to call the cops and jumped back into his brand-new minivan before driving into the sunset, making him the best bad-guy ever.
