Man Dumps Toddler At Bus Stop

Strangers take baby to church, police collect baby, mom picks up kid from cops later.

Is this the new model for free day care in Detroit?

DETROIT – Police in Detroit are searching for a man they say took a toddler girl to a bus stop and abandoned her, leaving the child standing alone on the street corner.

Late Monday night Detroit police identified the child and her mother, but still do not know the identity of the man who abandoned her, the Detroit Free Press reports. The child, 20-month-old Serenity Howell, was believed to be at home when she was left by the man and was picked up from the police station by her mother, 20-year-old Nicole Howell.

Witnesses say an African-American man in his twenties walked up to a bus stop with the toddler and left her. A Good Samaritan took the child to a nearby church, where the staff kept the child comfortable until police arrived.

“She couldn’t say her name. When I tried to say ‘mommy’ to see if any type of response came out, nothing,” one of the women at the church Renee Compton told MyFoxDetroit.com.

So you tell me. How did the mother know her toddler was at the police station? Did the people at the church recognize the kid? Did the cops? Was the drop off captured on surveillance cameras, and the police instantly recognized the guy?

Was this some new form of public daycare, or was the kid just a pawn in some nasty argument between the man and the mother?

Hours earlier, witness had told police the child, whose age is estimated to be about 18 to 24 months, came up to a bus stop at the corner of Van Dyke and Nevada with a black man in his 20s. The man struck up a conversation with another man who was waiting for a bus.

Knox said police aren’t sure who the man is or how he was involved, and that Serenity was believed to be at home when she was found at the bus stop.

After a short time, the man who brought the child just walked away, leaving the little girl behind. The second man who was waiting for the bus took the child to the Perfecting Church, on the nearby street corner, and police were called.

I dunno man. Some people are just not responsible parents. Or are they? What if this isn’t just an isolated incident, but the leading edge of a cultural movement? What if this kind of thing starts happening in bunches? 10, 100, 500 kids at the bus stop. Every morning. Let the man take care of the “lost” kids all day, feed them, clean them, watch over them. And the mommas come by in the evening to pick them up. Mostly. Unless, you know, unless there’s a really fine party on the block or something. Might not even matter if they take home the proper kid.

Are we on the cusp of seeing creche babies, like in the story Friday? Is this Hillary’s Dream coming true? “IT TAKES A VILLAGE”. Or at least a church and a police department.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
