A Georgia woman has been arrested and placed on $22000 bail after police found her in a crashed vehicle. While no one inside the SUV was hurt, a quick look around confirmed what police suspected. The car had been crashed on purpose. The children inside offered a pretty simple explanation of what had happened.
You think she did it on purpose?” the officer asked.
“Yeah because she turned. Her eyes was closed and she was saying, blah, blah, blah, ‘I love God,’” one of the girls said. “She didn’t want us to just have a car accident. She wanted us to know that God is real.”
You can watch the full clip of the officer questioning the children below:
The officer on scene asked the woman, named as Bakari Warren aged 25, if this was true. At the time Bakari told the officer to check her Facebook page in order to find the reason behind the crash, but police found no reference to her car, nor any feasible explanation for her behaviour on the page. Once inside the police station, however, the woman confirmed that she had indeed crashed the car to prove to her children that God is real.
So as bizarre as it may seem, the crash occurred because the woman let go of the steering wheel and intentionally allowed the car to drive into a nearby telephone pole in order to prove to her children that God would protect them.
Georgia Mother Bakari Warren Deliberately Crashed Car Into Pole To Prove To Kids That God Is Real. The 25-year-old mom has been charged with child cruelty for the SUV wreck involving her two young children. #Crime #CrimeStory https://t.co/1niau3Cyfa— INQUISITR (@theinquisitr) 24 March 2018
“It could have been a lot worse. It could have been heavier traffic at the time, she could have hit the pole at such an angle that she did more damage to the car,” said one of the officers who were there at the time.
The children in question have now been handed over to their grandparents and Bakari has been placed into police custody and is set to be charged with two counts of child cruelty. Given how incredibly reckless her behaviour was, we think it’s only right they throw the book at her. There are easier ways to instil a sense of faith into children, like going to church or raising them to have a deep appreciation for religion, their community, and God. Driving head first into a pole though? Probably *not* the appropriate response.
