    Illinois mom arrested after driving car with kids on roof — in an inflatable pool

    mom-pool-car-roof.jpg


    "Parents can be chastized for letting their kids ride in vehicles without seatbelts, and they can also be reprimanded for letting their children near pools without supervision — but in Illinois on Tuesday, a mother allegedly took parental negligence to another level.

    According to police in Dixon, Ill., 49-year-old Jennifer Janus Yeager was arrested after she had her two daughters ride on the top of her car in order to hold down an inflatable pool. She was charged with two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct. She was also cited for failure to secure a passenger of the age of 8 and under the age of 16.

    On Tuesday afternoon, Dixon law enforcement received a complaint from a concerned citizen reporting they had seen a woman driving with two children inside an inflatable pool on the roof of her car.


    Police searched the area and located the woman, pulling the car over. Yeager reportedly told officers she had her daughters ride atop the car so that they could hold the inflated, empty pool down as they drove home. She had reportedly gone into town to inflate the pool at a friend’s house.

    The mother eventually posted bond and was released from the Dixon Police Department."

    The best reply to this is a quote from the movie "Parenthood". You need a licence to fish, you need a licence to drive, but any butt reaming idiot can be a parent.

    Always said that there should be an a**hole test. You can't procreate, own a firearm, own a home or drive until you pass it. If you fail it consistently up to your 40th birthday, it is the responsibility of your MOTHER (or closest living kin) to take you back off the planet.

    These are the people who will sue a place after watching their children attempt to do something they know they shouldn't do, then the children get injured. Of course it's the business' fault for having such a dangerous access!

    We are going through this right now at the Church where I pastor.

    Every time you think you’ve seen the worst or the stupidest, someone comes along and tops it. Unbelievable.

    There has never been a shortage of idiots in this state. The problem is our bar is set so high that only the exceptionally stupid make it to the news...

    Like the kid that fell off the cruise ship when his grandfather set him on a railing. They are blaming the cruise line.

    A basic IQ test should be in order. Of course since our society has abandoned intelligence and ability in favour or equal outcomes (everybody gets to have kids) that will never happen. The problems with low IQ are not common knowledge.
