"In the dashcam video, a trooper is heard asking, 'What made you do that?' Lopez responds, 'I was alone.'"

"Regelio Lopez, 20, kidnapped his mother from their Richmond, Va., home and stuffed her in the trunk of his green Cadillac last month because she refused to move with him to Miami...."

Is she pressing charges?

This story is so sad!

What unfathomable loneliness that a man kidnaps his mother.

Ann Althouse,

"Putting the kid in kidnap."

Imagine not having a mother.

Imagine a snapping turtle without a shell.

Or always being somebody's dinner,...

Hits mom in ribs.

Father? Other family members? Why moving to Miami?

While not exactly on topic this reminds me of a classic Cuban comedy from the 70's called "El Super". If you can ever find it with sub-titles it's truly worth watching.

I have been looking to get the best dash cam system that I can. I have been looking for quiet some time now and I am excited to see what I can find. Hopefully I can find something here in the near future too.
