I know it's trendy for some groups to hate on video games, maybe even fashionable. I am not one of those people, but even I had to comment on the story out of Kennesaw, Georgia, where a 56-year-old babysitter was arrested on child cruelty charges after leaving the one-year-old she was watching in her van while she ran into a gas station.
Yeah, I know the windows were cracked an inch, and yeah, I can only imagine this worthless sack of trash trying the whole "I was only gonna be in there for a minute" bullshit, but not this time. Nope, the woman in question was busted after leaving the kid in the van to play video games.
This woman left a kid in a hot van (I'm not a meteorologist, but fuck, it's MAY in GEORGIA...I doubt there was a frost warning) to play video games. She left a kid in a hot van to play video games in a fucking gas station. What the fuck gas station still has a video game in it? What the hell, bitch, were you having a flashback to 1989-1990 or something? Were you hoping to cougar your way into something interesting by way of your high score on Mortal Kombat? Unfuckingreal.
If only I were in charge of the justice system. If only. I would give the woman ten bucks in quarters, sit her in front of a claw machine, and tell her she has that ten bucks to try and grab a hold of the not guilty verdict. Tell me the ratings on TruTV would not climb a few points watching idiots sweating the pursuit of freedom one quarter at a time.
