“Your Mom Would Be So Disappointed!”: 6-Year-Old Girl Shames Thieves; Gets Dad’s Bike Back
After thieves stole thousands of dollars worth of custom road bikes from her family’s garage, 6-year-old Roxy Thompson put up a yard sign shaming them for stealing. What happened next is pretty remarkable.
‘Shame on you bike thieves!!!’ wrote Roxy, according to KATU. ‘Your mom would be so disappointed! Even if she was a villain, she still wouldn’t want you to be a villain too! Sincerely, your resident 6-year-old.’
Roxy’s sign brought in a handful of tips, including a picture of a bike similar to the ones stolen from the girl’s house. Portland cops tracked down the people in the photo and discovered they had bought the road bike off the street for $50…One of the department’s detectives, Travis Field, hand-delivered the bike to Roxy.
What a great kid. I’m betting right now that she’ll grow up to be a conservative.
