I can’t believe this man wasn’t denied bail!
According to police, 27 year old Christopher Kuhn was fleeing from a Walmart in Levittown, Pa. On Tuesday, after allegedly stealing $228 worth of speakers.Apparently he also had his 2 year old son with him.
Instead of strapping the poor child into his car seat, Kuhn decided that it was more important to toss the child in the car and then conceal his license plate with a sweatshirt.
After driving away, he then ran a red light, crashing into two other vehicles.
His poor child, was thrown from the vehicle onto the road. What did Kuhn do? He simply paused to look at his injured son on the street and then ran away from the scene.
Bob James, of the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, stated:
“It was more important for Mr. Kuhn to attempt to get away from a misdemeanor retail theft by covering his license plate with his sweatshirt than it was to properly secure his two- year-old son in his car seat before fleeing at a high rate of speed.”
“It’s unreal. How can a dad choose even his own freedom over the health and safety and welfare of his own kid?”
One man that was involved in the accident, Fernando Medrano, said “I saw it when the baby flew, and I saw Kuhn run away,” Medrano told the station. “I just can’t believe he ran away.”
CPR was performed on the child until paramedics arrived, but he later died at the hospital.
To top it off, Kuhn was driving on a suspended license. He also had a previous record from 2016, when he allegedly strangled, bit and held a screwdriver to his ex-girlfriend’s neck while she held his 9-month-old child. He had also threatened to kill her in a previous incident.
After being caught by police, Kuhn was jailed and bail was set at $5 million. He was charged with third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle, and retail theft.
To think, an innocent child lost his life over a misdemeanor theft charge.
I still can’t believe he even made bail.
