Man Steals Car, Finds Baby Inside And Goes Back To Chastise Driver: A Morality Tale
Some lines you don't cross
A man's got to have a code, as Omar Little says.
Stealing a car? Permissible, if circumstances warrant. Leaving a baby in one? No way.
The Galveston County Daily News reports on this stirring morality tale, which took place early Tuesday morning.
A Houston woman and a boyfriend intended to go fishing off a Seawall pier; as they were taking the equipment out on a jetty, the woman left her baby in a car seat with the heater on because she thought it was too cold out.

As both of them were way out on the jetty, a man -- thought to be homeless -- hopped in the car and took off.
He quickly made a U-turn, though, when he discovered the baby in the backseat.
He drove it back to the couple, got out and, according to Galveston police, asked the couple "What the hell are you doing?"
"The guy made comments about why would you leave your kid in the car," a GPD spokesman said.
We do not know if the couple asked why the hell the guy would steal their car. But we're guessing they were too stunned by getting a morality lecture from a car thief to comment.
