Leaving a baby in a locked car often results in death. It is one crime that we give people very little slack over — unless of course they are special:
A video of a baby left in a locked car in Southern Texas has gone viral and so has the reason why the parents of the child weren’t arrested.
A couple from Saudi Arabia was watching a movie at a theater in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday night. While they were watching the movie, they left their baby locked inside, according to police. While the baby was unharmed, it hasn’t stopped people from being outraged at why officers didn’t hold the couple, who is not from this country, accountable.
“It wasn’t an accident and there wasn’t an arrest … it seems this time, culture played an unexpected factor,” KIII-TV reports.
Or rather, Islamophilic political correctness played a factor.
Don’t expect to get away with this crime unless you belong to a “marginalized” group high up in the caste system.
Authorities aren’t sure how long the family has been living in the United States, but decided to show “cultural sensitivity” and let the family go this time. Police are filing the case as an active criminal investigation and plan to follow up with the parents and see if it “really is normal in Saudi Arabia” to leave a child unattended in a car.
It is normal in Saudi Arabia to whip women to within an inch of their lives for getting raped. Presumably police will let that go too.
Try not to grind your teeth as the police admit that there probably would have been an arrest had the culprits been regular Americans:
