Mother Wrestles Kidnapper To The Ground to Protect Her Son, Kidnapper Arrested 103 Times

Forget the National Rifle Association’s assertion that what is needed to protect our children is more guns: They haven’t met Camilla McCall. McCall was walking in a Charlotte, North Carolina park with her three year old son when a strange man who was walking past them decided to try to grab the 3-year-old off his bicycle. McCall grabbed the bottom half of her son and fought like crazy to make sure the man, Jerry White, wouldn’t get a hold of him for good.

McCall then wrestled White and her son to the ground. White, fearing a visit from the cops, ran for his life, and McCall avoided seeing her son kidnapped by a total stranger. After White fled the scene, police were able to figure out his identity from surveillance footage from a local fast food restaurant.

White wasn’t just any stranger either. He has been arrested more than 103 times in the past. Most of those arrests were for non-violent offenses, but, yet, local residents, including McCall, were still shocked that White was not behind bars.

McCall said:

“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. The only thing I could think of is, I’ve got to hold on to him as tight as I can. That is crazy that he is still walking around here in our neighborhood and he’s been arrested that many times.”

White was later released after the incident, and the charges of kidnapping were dismissed due to lack of evidence. He was later found guilty of assault in connection with the incident.
