Saudi couple avoids arrest for leaving their baby inside car at Texas movie theater by claiming it's “part of their culture”

StaffRebel Columnist

Despite it being against the law to leave a baby unattended in a vehicle, a Saudi couple is avoiding arrest because police decided to be “culturally sensitive”.

KUTV reports, “A couple from Saudi Arabia was watching a movie at a theater in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday night. While they were watching the movie, they left their baby locked inside, according to police. While the baby was unharmed, it hasn't stopped people from being outraged at why officers didn't hold the couple, who is not from this country, accountable.”

A video of the child being left in the car was even posted to Facebook. At the same time, police tried to get into the car to check on the baby.

The couple was found inside the theater with their 4-year-old child inside.

Kirk Stowers of Corpus Christi police told KIII-TV 3News, “there were no arrests made last night.”

“What they found out is that the family is from Saudi Arabia and they said that this is culturally acceptable for them -- it's normal,” he added. “If it was someone who grew up in the United States, of course the outcome may be very different.”

SOUND OFF in the comments: should this couple have been arrested?

Hey, I lived in Germany where there are no speed limits on the autobahn, can I now drive any speed I want on Canadian highways and claim it as “part of my culture”? Brrrm, brrrrm…

I guess “when in Rome” and “ignorance of the law is no excuse” doesn’t apply if one fears the “Islamophobia” card might be pulled.

Its the law of the land. It does not mean that someone from outside the country can get away with a crime by claiming cultural differences or not being a citizen. Unfortunately, we have seen this happen all the time.

A rapist got way with his violent crime (this about twenty years ago in Montreal) by claiming he was Haitian and his culture allowed this. We see it all the time in the European justice system to the level that the police won’t even press charges.

Its almost as though Sharia was already implemented: Muslim crimes against unbelievers (especially hate crimes and calls to kill) do not matter, and unbeliever’s laws do not apply to Muslims.

We are so screwed…

What is the law?
The Law is the law!
Why is the law not applied equally to all residents?
Because we have nothing but gutless leaders in the west.
There is one thing you can say about the barbaric religion of bits and pieces is that they have enough guts to make a stand with their stupid ideology and beliefs.

Dump Justin Bin Trudeau

You are totally correct in spades Steven Hines. It isn’t right and it isn’t going to end well.

I am not a very learned man but I know you can not have a society where the rule of law is applied to everybody differently. People will quit respecting the law. Law enforcement will become demoralized, resentment among the populace, society will erode. This is not going to end well.

Why does recognizing this practice to be unremarkable in light of their different culture, also a declaration that child endangerment is legally, and morally acceptable?

If these cops believe this then he has some beach property in the Arabian desert he would like to sell them.

In their country honour killing is accepted. Does it mean we will accept it here? For every Canadian or American I believe that ignorance of the law is not recognised as a defence. I said it before, and I’ll say it again; the lack of firm action to protect our rights and laws when immigrants and refugees arrive leads to contempt and hate by locals for both, immigrants and politicians. Politicians foment all the problems by their weaknesses and stupidities.

This has something to do with culture, all right. Western, liberal, politically correct stupidity has infected our culture to the point where it can be easily exploited by Saudi and other foreign miscreants, even in places like Texas.

So is it culturally acceptable in the hot summer in Saudi Arabia? I find that one hard to believe.
commented 2017-02-15 17:38:41 -0500
How pathetic. In Texas no less. The baby should have been taken into child custody to save it from Muslim abuse. And this has nothing to do with anybody’s culture. It has everything to do with the false religion of Islam.

Trudeau actually spoke out about this.
“diversity is our strength guys, dont forget to cultural enrichment today.”

When the law is not applied equally it becomes a tool for tyranny and anything but justice.

Philip i so wish we could leave them to their idiocy without it affecting us.
Clare that would not surprise me.
Allan you are correct , too many in the west have turned gutless,even Texas is being cucked now.
Maurice wish we could afford to make a debt clock type of trailer with those stats and drive it around.

Islam isn’t reforming or becoming enlightened because it doesn’t have to. I propose that all immigration of Muslims from Muslim countries that do not grant their citizens religious freedom be temporarily stopped until religious freedom is allowed in such countries. This will encourage Muslim countries to reform and will benefit non-Muslims in Muslim countries and Muslims in free countries, who will become less distrusted – not because of foolish government edicts which will do the opposite of their intent – but by demonstrating that Muslim countries can treat non-Muslims as western countries have treated Muslims.

Funny how this cultural sensitivity nonsense is always a one way street. Try in Saudi some time. They use these idiotic defences because they know we are gutless wonders.

Phil, I think you should claim that since we are forever being told that we are racist bigots that you should use that as your defence. Being a racist bigot is part of our culture. Every lefty on the planet will back you up. Out of jail free.

But, if I said their disgusting culture is barbaric then I would be in triuble. What the fu6K is the world coming to? Progressives are fu6king up the world.
