The 10 Worst States to Raise a Child In

Dad Uses His Tot As a Decoy While Shoplifting

It's bad to be a thief, but being a terrible father is unforgivable. Twenty-eight-year-old Justin Black is both. He used his 2-year-old as a decoy to steal goods from a Wal-Mart store with an accomplice. While Black was running to avoid security, he fell on his tot and then took off in a car without securing his child. All this for a couple of video games and about $200 worth of merchandise. He was later arrested at home and the toddler is safe with his mother. I hope the judge throws the book at this bad dad.

Man, those two guys look really stupid. Just goes to show, looks do not always deceive. They look like cretins, and behave like cretins. Throw away the key. They will never come to any good.

I'm thinking I need to keep this in mind. Should I be taking notes? ;)

This is sadly not that uncommon. I used to work at my dad's general store and we'd catch mother/daughter teams stealing where the kids were like 10 and the moms were literally instructing them how to steal merchandise.

This is sad. I had a couple women come in to Old Navy when I worked there and stuff things into their strollers under the baby's blanket. So messed up.

That is horrendous, he could have killed that child. I agree with everyone, he deserves whatever can possibly be thrown at him for doing such a stupid thing and putting his own offspring in harms way.

What a moron some people do not deserve to be parents, there are so many people that would love to have a child and would never put their child in harms way, this guy should be charged with not only reckless driving but also endangerment of a child, endangering the welfare of a child and anything else on behalf of this boy
