An Open Letter to the Mission’s Most Irresponsible Father
I have been following the story about your 5-month-old baby being abducted from your car while you stopped at 18th and Mission for some
herbal refreshment cigarettes. While I obviously hope she turns up safe, this question begs to be asked: What the hell is wrong with you?
It is not normal for people to leave babies in unlocked cars in the Mission while they stop to pick up a
dime bag a pack of cigarettes. Of course I don’t think it’s okay for anybody to snatch a random child out of someone else’s car, but come on. Weed run Cigarettes after an unsuccessful crack mission? Doors unlocked? I am sad to say that I’m rather suspicious about the whole scenario.
Edit: To be fair to the father (ahem) he had been in the Mission looking for crack/cocaine, according to this Chronicle article, not weed. And his claim is that the girl was lifted from the car as he went into the smoke shop to get cigarettes not while he was looking for weed or crack.
Theard has a criminal record for pimping and pandering and admitted to police that he had been at 24th and Mission streets earlier Sunday evening looking for crack cocaine, but had been unsuccessful in finding it. “That has nothing to do with why my daughter is missing,” he said.
Apologies for the confusion. But my open letter still stands. Fishy story.
