Video of the Kid Who Stole His Parents’ Car to Avoid Church

I mentioned a 7-year-old kid who stole his parents car so he wouldn’t have to go to church.

Now, we have police video of the incident!

It’s funny to watch (knowing the kid wasn’t injured)… the highlight comes at the 45-second mark.

(Thanks to Dan for the link!)

    You know what’s sad about this video? Here’s this little kid jumping out of the car, and taking off like a bat out of hell. Who taught this kid that fear is the appropriate response to the police? Here’s the son of a “church-going” family, yet his first instinct is to run from the police. Something’s screwed up there.

    looks like the cop didn’t know what to do after the kid got out of the car.

    One of my employees asked if I’d seen the video of “the kid that stole his dad’s car” I asked if it was this video (it was). I said, “Did you know it was because he didn’t want to go to church?” Her response was, “Well, maybe that’s where he ought to go.”

    I made a comment about how my dad never forced us to go to church because he doesn’t much care for organized religion (though he is a theist). She looked at me with a horrified expression when I told her I hadn’t been inside a church in years.

    Hahaha, oh c’mon. He’s seven. He stole his dad’s car. Of course he’s going to run from the police, church-going family or not.

    Personally, I think the story is humorous and all, but I don’t think there’s anything that should be read out of it.

    There was no way that cop was going to catch that kid on foot. Whoosh.

    where did he learn how to drive?

  • Zahada

    I agree! His driving was pretty good for a 7 year old! LOL!

    I wonder why the cops didn’t shoot out his tires.

    Note: everything I know about police chases comes from the OJ Simpson thing.

    I know I shouldn’t laugh but I couldn’t help it. He’s so lucky he wasn’t hurt.

    anyone have a youtube link? I cant get the vid to play.

    I think he drove better than i did on my drivers test. Someone give that kid a license. If my mother can still retain hers this little guy deserves one! =)

    as the cop gets near the garage door, I’m sure he goes for his gun.

    whats that old saying, “shoot ‘em all and let god sort ‘em out”

    Thats frakkin’ hilarious, the kid drove pretty good, must have been play a ton of Grand Theft Auto. ;-)

    Although I do have a serious question. The kid is seven and I know kids do stupid things, they’re kids, but few kids go joyriding in their parents cars. I’m wondering if there wasn’t something going on in that church that was a little bit hinky, freaking him out enough that he just had to get out of there.
