Shopping should never supercede being a good parent and decent human being. A true role model, Anthony Perry allegedly left his girlfriend's two-year-old son in the car to buy a 51-inch screen television from Kmart. Police were forced to break into the car after someone noticed the boy, and Perry was later found at his home with his brand new TV. How the hell did he manage to get that home without his car?
Anyway, Perry told authorities that he lost the boy after taking him into the store despite hard evidence that suggested otherwise. Nobody bought his story and he was charged with reckless endangerment of a child.
