Police Find This Inside Muslim Family’s Car, Their Excuse Is Despicable

Texas police took notice of a car parked in a movie theater parking lot. They were shocked to find a baby was left inside of the car in a car seat. The child's family came out and said that it's normal behavior in their country, so the police let them go. Police have taken a lot of heat for that call and have changed their tune.

The couple left their 8-month-old baby in a van while they took their 4-year-old to see a movie. When the family returned to the car, Corpus Christi Police officers were there. The Muslim couple told the police that it's normal behavior in their homeland, and police let the couple go.

Initially, the officers reported that they let the couple go because the baby seemed unharmed and they wanted to be culturally sensitive. A cell phone video of the baby in the car made the rounds on social media, and people were outraged.

The child was inside the car for at least 46 minutes when the 29-year-old father and his 17-year-old wife came out with their daughter. The cry of outrage caused police to change their tune by Monday.

"I teach multiculturalism in the police academy," said CCPD Lt. Chris Hooper, "but in no way do their values from another country or their cultural idiosyncrasies afford them the right to break laws in our country."

Hooper says police might have badly explained the story, and that the department doesn't consider the couple being from another country an excuse to get away with breaking American laws.

According to a police spokesperson, the officers let the father of the family know that charges would be filed later.

Child Protective Services have gotten involved in the case, and the parents are facing charges of child endangerment and abandonment. If convicted, they could pay up to $10,000 in fines and/or spend up to two years in prison.
