  • Another case of bad parenting

    It’s pretty sad when my 12 year old saw this and the first thing he said was “where were the parents?”. I live in Vista and I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often because little kids and even adults are always running into the streets.

    I feel very sad for the child because their parents/caregiver failed them miserably. RIP

    Shame on all of you. So sad you all are quick to judge. This is my nephew and he knew better then to run into streets. He was taught very well. The lady was going 45 on a 25 zone. He was being watched and it all happened in a matter of seconds. He didn’t run onto on coming traffic like they reported. I suggest if you all don’t know the whole story then shut your mouth.
