Grandma arrested for driving with child on roof

Quote:
MARATHON, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a grandmother was arrested for driving around the parking lot of a Marathon grocery store with her 3-year-old child sitting on the roof of the car.
Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the Publix store Tuesday and arrested a 54-year-old woman after she was driving around with her three-year-old granddaughter on the roof of her car.

The grandmother was released from jail 15 hours later.

The woman said Thursday she would never let anything hurt her granddaughter. She says she was driving at "snail-speed" and holding the child's leg.
Oh, well that changes everything!...

She should have put her on the hood where she could keep an eye on her. But I don't see this as something the woman should have been arrested for.
One, she probably did know what she was doing and had a firm grip on the kid. Probably had done it before.
Two, if she didn't have a firm grip on the kid and was a dum bass (she probably was a dum bass since she was doing this at a public lot instead of the beach or her own driveway), then I see this as dum bass population control. Leave her alone and we won't have to spend thousands of dollars for her grand daughter's therapy or housing grandma in jail. If the kid falls off the roof and grandma runs over her, besides forming the basses of the next hit country song, it will only prove accidents can happen.
Give her a break. Florida sucks anyway. I'm just inclined to disagree with about anything they do down there.

Exactly! Natural selection. And the parents let the grandmother care for the child so they must have been fools too.
