Wow. Wow. Wow. Seriously there are no words to describe the stupidity of this person.
Investigators said 28 year old Amber Schmunk had her child ride on top of her minivan to hold down a plastic pool. She’s now been charged with a felony.
The complaint says Schmunk eventually pulled over and took her nine-year-old son off the roof, folded the pool and put it inside the van. She then pulled into her sister’s driveway. Schmunk told police “she believed it was OK as her father let her do things like that when she was that age.” Hey growing up I did some pretty crazy things too. I remember Dad letting me lay on back review window but even I know not to strap my kid or in my case, my dog, to the roof of my car!
She went on to explain that it was the only option because there wasn’t enough room inside the minivan for the pool she had picked up. What she doesn’t know someone who owns a truck?
Schmunk later told police she did strap the boy down inside the pool.
Schmunk was charged with second degree recklessly endangering safety — a felony. She faces 10 years behind bars. I’m not sure she deserves time in jail but definitely needs some kind of parenting class for starters! Unbelievable! ~grace
