Default MN news report

Yesterday a 4 year old boy in Michigan decided to take his mom'* 1990 Pontiac Bonneville to the movie store to get a video game for his Playstation. He made the 1 1/2 mile drive safely, found the store closed, and while returning home hit 2 vehicles and a MN State Patrol cruiser. Kind of sad but the Bonnie made it out with a slightly wrinkled fender, hood, and dented bumper.

I dunno why the car in that report is silver, the mother'* car is actually blue. Damn journalists.

We were talking about that story in my Correctional Process class yesterday. I didn't know it was a Bonnie!

It'* not a Bonnie.

It was a Geo Prizm. The little boy drove his mom'* Geo Prizm to the video store. On the way back he crashed into a silver 1990 Bonnie and a police car.

That'* right. I also saw a more elaborated video in SBC. The silver bonneville is owned by a young lady. She is very pissed off at the fact that the boy is not going to pay for the damage of her car. She also said:
"People are laughing at my face when I tell them this. They laugh, but it'* MY car that has been damaged".

The silver Bonneville DID get the most damage out of this, but the car is still more than drivable.

I did say that it was in Michigan, but the report came from Minnesota. I'm not suprised they got the story wrong. They kept showing a blue Bonneville whenever they talked about the woman'* car and how her son went out driving it. There wasnt a single Geo Prizm shown in either the 1st report nor the follow up interview they did. Bastids.
