Mom Wrestles Son From Kidnapper: Man Arrested 103 Times

Noticed this story on Yahoo and thought it would be interesting to share. It’s actually an old story but let us know what you think.

This is another scary abduction story but this one has a happy ending. A woman told police in Charlotte that she was walking beside her 3-year old son as he rode his bike in the park when a man walked by, where he suddenly turned and yanked the boy off the bike by the waist. Luckily, the woman managed to grab onto her son and fought the man over him.

“He just snatched him around the waist, off the bike and that’s when I jumped on, and grabbed Liam and that’s when we were fighting about him,” Camilla McCall said. “The only thing I could think of is, I’ve got to hold on to him as tight as I can.”

The man eventually let go and fled the scene, but police were able to retrieve a box from a local fast-food restaurant which contained a receipt, and, believing it belonged to the man, confirmed their suspicions with surveillance footage at the restaurant. That led to the arrest of 41-year old Jerry White, who has a whopping 103 arrests on his record. While officials say they were mostly non-violent offenses, nearby residents are shocked that he was walking free after so many crimes.

“That is crazy that he is still walking around here in our neighborhood and he’s been arrested that many times,” said McCall.

Fortunately for her, the situation ended well. She and her son were unharmed in the incident; however, White was later released and the charges dismissed due to lack of evidence. He was, however, found guilty of the assault charge.

      Matt, tell us how you really feel

        Matt, really all the white people that committe crimes. Hmm
        Newtown, CT was a white male. Plue everyone know white males are the #1 serial killers. Racist Ignorant Bastard, your Parents did a great job raising you.

    • G

      That was racist, because this same crime happens all the time, but the perpetrator is mostly white!! The rant you just ran off was useless!!

    • Renee

      So you mean to tell me white people don’t also commit crimes??? Not only do whites hold the highest number of child abductors/molesters in the US but they also hold the highest number of people on government assistance. If you’re going to try to educate people on another race the very least you can do is know all of the facts about yours. Denial is rampid amongst you people.

      • Renee

        *rampant not rampid….yes I do spellcheck myself thankyou 😉

      • Gregg

        Really, Renee? You want to spout out “numbers,” when the numbers are actually much higher per capita in the African-American demographic. Caucasians outnumber African-Americans (and all other races in the U.S.–though perhaps not for much longer), but crime rates are a greater percentage for other ethnicities, especially for African-Americans and Latinos.

        In no way do I endorse such behavior. Crime is crime and should be punishable. But, I’m not blaming them totally, as they have been oppressed by our government (and, yes…welfare is a form of oppression) for so long; having few opportunities, people (like any other living creature) will do whatever it takes to survive. Unfortunately, due to this human nature, others get hurt along the way. It is much more complicated than just that, but the cause is our government and the blind followers who are so self-righteous. Those greedy maggots are, in many ways, worse than criminals, as they have created the situation that leads to criminal behavior, then blame the criminals for what often comes intrinsically, especially when catalyzed.

        Just so that we have a complete understanding, your accusations are no better than those who are pointing a finger because this perpetrator was African-American. It is a vile stereotype which needs to be broken if we are going to move forward in this society. Greed–which does not discriminate against race, creed, color, or even religion–is the most heinous deadly sin, as it drives people to commit many others.

        And the meek shall inherit the Earth….

    • Judy

      Matt do you go on the same race based rant whenever a crime is committed by someone of your race?

    • shauna

      @Matt, what does welfare and “some blacks” choosing to live on it have to do with the story that was posted? From the story post after reading, I don’t recall a statement that the individual/suspect was/is on welfare, nor the victims. I’m glad the guy was caught, and the mother & son were unharmed.
      Just fyi, welfare is abused by some individuals of other ethnicites as well ~ not only by some african-americans.

      Peace, & Be Well!

    Charming! It always amazes me how almost everything in America is reduced eventually sadly l can see by ignorance and plain and simple racism.

    There are bad and good people in all races, kidnapping by anyone is abhorrent! why would you write with so much venom, and sadly lack of informed DATA, let me a highly educated articulate black African enlighten you.

    There are more white Americans, sitting on their abc’s, than blacks. would you care to do the research then respond on this forum, l will be happy to keep trying to have civil communication with you white person. l beg your pardon but l will not use your descriptive but insulting jargon to express myself.

    President Obama is in the white house, a black man from Africa, after running one of the most sophisticated, as civil as he could given all the humongous attempts to get him out, and all racist tactics, races EVER! SMOKE THAT O WHITE PERSON. Doreen

    • Renee

      Thank you!!!! It’s sad when people have such little information about their own but stay trying to preach about other races.

  • Arron

    Matt… Okay you’re a racist the world must be a pretty scary place for you. To me you (I’m assuming a so called law abiding Caucasian male) in fact sound like a you’re just full of hate and misunderstanding. Trying checking out all the methheads in Independence, Mo. Lots of poor white people committing crimes too. Either way Hope you get the help/education you need to deal with your problems and misunderstanding about society. Now with that said how about a insightful comment and discussion. First of this isn’t a race/class issue. *Newsflash this just in people of all races/class comment horrible crimes* This is a issue about how we treat repeat offenders. Why was this guy still on the streets after 10 arrest let alone 103? And kudo’s for the mom for fighting him off.

    • http://yahoo patty

      Arron, You got it right Love you, Patty

    • http://yahoo Lawrence

      I agree with matt. Not sure how 103 arrests are something to scoff at. Yes people of all races commit crimes. Fact is this gentleman is a complete dirtbag who should be euthanized for the good of humanity.

    • http://yahoo David Biggin

      The guy is still on the loose after comitting all those crimes because, he, the Black judges and Obama say its not his fault, its someone elses fault!

      • Ursula

        Wow David…how very ignorant of you! Unless he committed all 103 crimes in the last 4 years…what could President Obama have to do with it. Better yet look at your REPUBLICAN President Bush. He was in office for 8 years and this idiot was not put under the jail???? Please explain that! I guess Bush gave him a pass also. REMEMBER…Better to be thought an idiot, than to speak and remove ALL doubt!

  • dj

    Good job mama! Never mess with a mama and her babies!

  • joe

    I know everything is about the poor black people. Stop that I have heard enough, next time I am going to whine, white racist. what about the mother and her son, glad everything turned out ok.

  • wendymaddy

    race has nothing to do with kidnapping. or with this article. a kidnapper was thwarted, and has been a career criminal, apparently, being arrested 2-1/2 times a year since the day he was born. hopefully, this will be his last arrest for several years, at least, since kidnapping is a felony and that will give him at least one strike toward being permanently incarcerated. felonies usually put one behind bars for at least ten to twenty years, but most kidnappings have life sentences in most states, so he may have room and board for the rest of his life. what is chilling is that unless he targeted this family and it is a very wealthy one, he may have had pedophile purposes in snatching a three year old toddler. we don’t know his motive at this time, nor do the police. we may never know. he may not choose to tell anything. most career criminals don’t talk. it’s just a great miracle that mom was quick to grab her child and held on successfully. my aunt, three years older than i was at age five, grabbed my other arm when a pedophile grabbed my hand on a busy street in front of the movie theater where we were waiting for my parents to bring the car around to pick us up. if she hadn’t, i wouldn’t be alive today writing these words. she was my heroine! that guy never was caught. i believe he was the same guy who played santa claus with his perverted wife at the jon benet residence xmas party before she was murdered in her own home shortly afterward. if so, i shudder to think how many children he might have molested and murdered in between that time, a period of about forty five or fifty five years! thank God this man was stopped. hopefully, he will experience remorse and a change of heart and personality while imprisoned for this heinous crime against a tiny little boy and his mother. i will pray for him and we must all be just thankful that the criminal was caught, the boy survived, and the perpetrator will spend a lot of time in jail thinking over the meaning of his life and what he wants to do with the rest of it. i hope the little boy will get over the trauma and fear of being snatched off his bicycle like that!

    I bet I know who he voted for

    • Miya

      Well, he seems uneducated so I would bet Romney.

      • Renee

        Lol good one

        Love it

      • kristi

        i bet romney also

      • danimal

        I think the euphemism for Democratic voters is “Low Information Voters”. Yep, this guy fits the Republican profile like living on handouts, having the government take care of you, entitlement. Yep Miya, sure sounds like a republican to me (Puke).

    • Renee

      What does who you assume he voted for have to do with the article??? Considering the number of times he’s been arrested I highly doubt he voted for anyone period. Instead of trying to make this something political how about you just be glad the mother and her son are okay.

      • Marc

        I feel the same way about the suspect’s voting preferences – that is is irrelevant.

    • Jordan

      No shit. If the president was asian 95% of asians would vote for him.

      • Renee

        Actually the President won the Asian vote by 73% so I really don’t think his race had as much to do with it as a lot of people are trying to assume.

    • Celine

      Hahaha love this comment.

    • Felesia

      Well Chris, He prolly didnt vote and ignorance is very blissful!

    • Marc

      What does the question of whom this voted for for President have to do with what he is accused of?

  • Sarah

    And US jails are full of peaceful pot smokers, while people like this snatch up our kids

    • Steve

      Yes, peaceful drug addicts (pot smokers) who cannot hold down a job bc they cannot pass a drug test and have to resort to stealing should be freed, that’s exactly what I took away from this story.

  • http://Yahoo Kelly

    All of you just wasted a lot of time! This guy is Indian! Hahahahahaha!!

  • finfab

    Can’t keep guys like him in prison. Way more important to keep the guy growing weed in his basement for personal consumption in the slammer. I mean what would you rather? A guy trying to abduct kids in broad daylight with 103 prior arrests, or the monster smoking his bong in his basement?

    • http://Yahoo Kelly

      Are you writing this from the basement?

      • http://Yahoo Nancy

        That was really funny:)

  • kristi

    doesn’t matter who he voted for, he looking at his picture and the number of arrest he may have a mental disorder.

  • http://Yahoo Nancy

    She didn’t need a gun. A mother will kill with her bare hands over her child!!!!!

  • JJ

    If she had a gun she could have done everyone a favor.

  • Swundro

    Go ahead, let him out one more time……make my day…… :)

  • dirty

    What is this freaks malfunction? To try and steal a kid right from the grip of his MOTHER? ARE YOU INSANE? You could have been KILLED trying to do that? There is NO ONE who will protect a child from harm and danger (most of the time) than a MOTHER of her child …..PLEASE keep this pos in the slammer and if he wants to play, tell the big boys what he does to children!!! Yea, that should fix him for a while

    • nanett

      dirty…you are 100% correct. My mama owend a Bonding Co. for many years and 1 arrest she told me about, now 30 yrs later, never left my mind. A child molester (his natural kids) was arrested. NONE of the Co.s at that time would bond him out. He was tossed in lockup & the cop announced why he was arrested. 10 min. later the cop came back & the guy spent 2 months in the hospital and (thank God) was “never the same”…AS IT SHOULD BE!!! Even “cons” have a creed…do what ever you want, be what ever you are, but NEVER touch a child!

      • Shay

        Great story, Nanett!

    • jena

      dirty, unfortunately these days they put those creeps in protective custody! It seems like these cons have so many rights, even while locked up. its disgusting! I know that if someone tried to kidnap my child, they would wish they were dead & I would probably end up in prison!

  • Lynne

    How about we call ourselves what we are American. By that I mean, if you were actually born in this country – you are American. How can people who have never actually stepped foot on African soil refer to themselves as African-American? And I mean that for any other ethnic group there is. I have Irish heritage – but I was born and raised here as were my parents that makes me American not Irish American. Until we all think of ourselves as American the division in this country will continue.

    • Shay

      I agree Lynne.

  • renee

    And how long before he does this again and actually gets away?!!!

  • denise

    well.. it always comes down to race, sad in 2013… I must say, as a white woman, I was quite frankly shocked that this man was “of color”… I actually expected him to be white, guess Im a racist as well, lmao!! N the whole on assistance and ghetto trash thing from Matt, you must of had a privlaged life… well allow me to make a confession.. I am a single WHITE mom of 2 and I HAVE A JOB!! but guess what, I am also on assistance… I work hard but apparently Matt, you don’t know what its like to be a single mom of 2 and have to afford everything ur self… n don’t say well get a better job or go to school… I have a B.A and have had training in almost everything, have u seen the market?… N let me tell you from observation, when I go down to that line, its actually more people of the mexican or south american descent… now, don’t get me wrong, there are people who take advantage… but don’t assume they are all ghetto trash and or black… besides, its not them that are the problem, its our goverment!! if we r willing to let illegals and others into our country and provide for them, then why wouldn’t they take it?… N Obama is far from perfect, but can you tell me a president that was? Every president that will ever be in office, is not going to be liked by everyone and they will not do everything right, but I will take a black/Mexican, gay, drag queen over another BUSH any day!!!! WHat this is really about is, a MAN that has been arrested way too many times attempted to abduct a child, and thank God and the will of a mama bear to protect her cub, the MAN wasn’t successful! that’s the story, that’s what matters!

    • Dale

      My concern is the fact that this person had that many priors as well as the fact that the person that brought this to the website is harping on the fact that a gun was not involved, too bad. Odds are this guy will have many more arrests because he wasn’t stopped that way; which is well with in this Mom’s right with proper training. No one addressed the terror this child felt or the next ones will have to deal with or worse, but thank goodness the POS’s is still breathing! Amanda maybe all law abiding citizen should turn in their guns so the criminals can continue to attack without fear of retribution. Just remember in the 20th century alone in several countries after everyday citizens were forced to give up their guns by their government over 52 MIILION of them were rounded up and slaughtered. AN ARMED MAN IS A CITIZEN AN UNARMED MAN IS A SUBJECT.

      • denise

        Wow, AGAIN AN IGNORANT AMERICAN!! SO BECAUSE I HAVE 2 KIDS MEANS I SLEEP AROPUND!! N Im a tax payer and have worked 2 jobs since I was about 16 and before that I worked in my fathers florist since I was 9 years old. So technically, I have paid for my own assistance!! Don’t tell me to close my legs when you have no clue about my life!! If you must know, not that I need to prove anything! I was with the father of my children since I was in High School and sadly he lost his battle with a brain tumor last year! N I have no problem getting 8 jobs to support my children but my son is special needs and needs more of my attention at the moment! So you have no real details about my life! Shit happens, there are people out there who have it even worse than me.. I feel sorry for you, that you have ice running through your veins.. But I hold no anger cause I have found that people like you eventually find out what it’s like for the ignorance that comes out of their mouth! I will pray for u! Cause I know the good person I am and the good I have done and as I’m rising up, I will watch you fall! God bless

        • Candyj

          Good for you Denise!! I myself am a single mother of two beautiful kids, and when I had my first son I was very young, therfore I did need assistance. But while I was receiving assistance, I was working two jobs, and attending school!
          While I was attending school I got a break and landed a very good job where I no longer needed assistance. And now here I am, single mother of two (and yes from the same father!) and I am a successful woman in the Oil & Gas field :) and I am proud that for my daugther I was able to provide all her needs with no assistance!
          yes there are people that scam the system and it truly upsets me, but there are women or family’s like ours that really do need assistance!
          Good luck Denise!! :)

      • Sharon

        Just what, Marcy, did your comment have to do with the article? Did you read anything besides the headline???

    • dagnabit

      i missed the part where they said she was white.

  • chad

    At the beginning of the article it said the man was stopped WITHOUT a gun. Well if she had a gun and shot and killed him, then he would not have been arrested for a 104th time.

    • Leigh

      That is a very good point!! How right you are Chad lol

  • Baz

    Not sure I see any connection or relevance to the emphasis on the woman protecting herself or child without a gun.



  • Homiebooboo

    Well if the first victim has used a gun to stop him then he would not have been arrested 103 times. Duh.

  • danimal

    Where do I start? Our liberal laws let this slime out of jail after 103 arrests and now he’s moving up to bigger and better crimes. Here’s my vote for law abiding citizens to carry guns just in case…lets see, Hey, how about you’re in the park with your three year old and someone tries to kidnap him right in front of you. A properly placed bullet would permanently stop its crime spree.

    • Tagg Romney

      Yes it’s great that a child abductor arrested 103 times will live to abduct again HOOOOORAAAYY!!! Also you thoughtless ass I see you a big Hunter S. Thompson fan one of the biggest gun lovers ever what would he think of your comment ?

    • Tagg Romney

      That was’nt meant for you danimal it was meant for Amanda Crummy

  • your mother.

    from the looks of the writer’s picture at the bottom, she wouldnt be chasing ANYONE down that tried to kidnap her ‘most amazing kid ever’. this hambeast would HAVE to rely on a gun to get her kid back because god knows her feet wouldnt react too quickly.

    how about you dont focus on the few crimes that are thwarted without firearms and you try to report on the massive amounts of murders that might have been avoided had the victim been able to shoot back?

  • Tagg Romney

    Yes it’s great that a child abductor arrested 103 times will live to abduct again HOOOOORAAAYY!!! Also you thoughtless ass I see you a big Hunter S. Thompson fan one of the biggest gun lovers ever what would he think of your comment ?

      ” I see your ” not “I see you ” still your a dumbass and I’M TAGG ROMNEY !

        its “i see you’re” and “still you’re a dumbass” if you want to get grammatical.

    103 times???? Would have been better to shoot this IDIOT!!! WHY ISN’T THAT ASS HOLE UNDER A JAIL SOMEWHERE?? Oh yea, he’s black, probably “O”‘s kid brother!!!

  • J Bell

    What are they waiting for for him to kill the child or other children, then they will keep him in jail. Will that be enough evidance

    • Joe Smuchatelli

      They are waiting for him to commit a crime with a gun so they can use it to increase gun control, until he does they will keep letting him go!

  • Debbie Gibson

    with so many arrests, that’s the problem, they keep letting these violent people out of jail to walk our streets, all they have to do is find a gun or other method of weapon and do what ever they want, one, there is too much media coverage (press doesn’t have the rule old news any more, and they wear these stories out, giving the prepatrator too much news coverage) secondly, doesn’t do any good to arrests them if our laws don’t stamp down on tough laws that make these crimnals think twice before they comment a crime.

  • Jane Doe

    Not sure what the point is here? To piss everyone off about the fact that NOW this stellar human being has been arrested 104 times and still is walking free due to “lack of evidence”? (What, the Mom didn’t have a video to “prove” this idiot grabbed her kid so they believed the criminal?) And this really doesn’t have squat to do with the gun control issue. There are crimes every day that are thwarted with no weapon and just a many that are stopped with a weapon. That is not the raging issue being debated about gun control. The issue is that this piece of crap could probably get a semi-automatic weapon due to lax rules about who can have guns and what type of gun and our inability to screen out the bad guys and crazy people. “Mom” would need to buy a Bazooka to get the upper-hand according to NRA who keep insisting that everyone should just upgrade to bigger and more guns and 20 people would have been killed in the park in the cross-fire. There will always be weapons, but these conspiracy theory nuts who think Obama faked Newtown and morons who think we all need to be armed like the military need to get some meds— oh wait– they can’t—no more mental hospitals. HMMM! Maybe you should write about that.

    • http://yahoo bebell

      well spoken

    • Belle

      We don’t need gun control…we need to go back to having full mental institutions and then the jails won’t be so full. And we can create jobs at the mental institutions while we’re at it. Lots of people just need to be off the street and not in jail.

  • adarc

    your mother – just because YOU feel like you need a gun to protect your family doesn’t mean the rest of do. I’m only 5′ 4″ and have taken down two muggers, with my bare hands.
    The fact is any child who lives with a gun in the house is more likely to become a statistic than one who doesn’t.

  • Denise

    To the police/laws: you suck -you suck – you suck!!!!! They dismissed the charges due to LACK of evidence?!?!?!? What did this fine, upstanding citizen say in response to the mother’s accusations that was so convincing as to dismiss attempted kidnapping?!?!? WTH more do we parents need to do?!? If that would have been a law enforcement/judicial system/politicians’ child………………..

  • Setsail98

    We don’t need gun laws… police are rewarding lawbreakers!

  • adarc

    103 arrests is a lot – but in states like NC and CA who struggle with over crowded prisons almost no one completes their full sentences.

  • legal

    Even thou he was stopped without a gun being arrest 103 times and still not in jail. A gun shot to this guys head would do him and the rest of the world some good.

    • bob

      maybe he is mental,, it what all attorneys and lawyers use,, i mean ofcourse they will argue thgat after 102 times,, he would have to be insane to keep commiting crimes,, but he should have longer terms, and all of us know that if people really want to stay out of trouble and jail,, they dont continue to do crimes,, as i said, he is a career criminal with no life

  • bob

    I see justice has been done the first 103 times,, according the the system this nation uses, people like this should be behind bars, its shows after the 2ns 102 offenses that he is a career criminal,, regardless of what the charges he has done are,, the pattern continues,, maybe his 104th arrest will be for a murder before this stupid nation wakes up its justice system,, but then again ofcourse they wont, we only complain on things, crimes we casnt stop but blame, things for,,like firearms, bullets & weapons, however none of those have ever killed a person,, without the use by another,, People Kill People!! Thats the bottom line,, and Nobody can ever stop that no matter what!! Wake up Obama, wake up People!!!!

  • D. Alan Curry

    For what it’s worth, 103 arrests do not equal 103 convictions. Under American law, people cannot be locked away without what’s called due process. End of story.

    • bob

      Mr. Curry,, as i mentioned,, the US wont do anything, nor will the laws,, but we will always complain,, the Common Sense part dosnt allow stupidty,, but it serves it,

    • Rosanna

      Sorry, but he was not arrested just off the streets for no reason. He’s a danger to society.

      seriously? 103 arrests ~ he was framed right? tried to abduct a child, but lets give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Lack of evidence?? What kind of law enforcement run THIS town? The clown police!

      It is not the police. It is the lawyers in the court house that make that decision. Everyone blames the police who work hard every day to lock up the same criminals over and over. Ten percent of the population commit ninety percent of the crime (I think that is a general saying and not a fact).
