I love my town of Amherst, MA. We’re good people. Good, concerned people. Good, concerned, deeply ethical people. Good, concerned, deeply ethical people who care. Good, concerned, deeply ethical people who care and who really do know the best way you should be living your life, especially if you’re from one of those less evolved countries like . . . Sweden.
A Swedish woman who police say left her baby unattended outside a Massachusetts restaurant while she ordered food inside was reported to a state agency for possible child maltreatment, officials said on Monday.
Police said they were summoned to the Bueno Y Sano eatery in the western Massachusetts college town of Amherst on Friday after the 1-year-old boy was left alone in his stroller on the sidewalk for about 10 minutes.
The woman, who authorities did not identify, said she “found nothing wrong with the situation” and that it was common in Sweden to leave young children alone outside a restaurant, said police.
The boy reportedly was in good health after the incident.
But how could the kid be in “good health” after being left in a stroller on a sidewalk for ten minutes in one of the safest cities in America? Put that woman in jail!
By the way, for non-residents, Bueno Y Sano is a great little burrito place that is tucked in a courtyard off the main street, shaded, quiet, untrafficked. In other words, perfectly safe.
