Her name is Jessica Liesmann, but she’s better known as “Mama Bear,” or the woman who confronted an armed car thief after he rammed into her mini-van in Texas. And now, she’s been ‘rewarded’ with a new vehicle.
“A high-speed police chase came to a dramatic end Wednesday in North Dallas when the driver rear-ended a family’s minivan and was promptly tackled, dragged into the street and beaten by the mom at the wheel and her boyfriend,” reports NBC’s Channel 5 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Her story proves that we are desperate for anyone who resembles a ‘hero.’ After-all she leaped from her van and went after a bad guy on live-television.
However, if you really analyze what she did, you’d realize she did this because she lost her temper, enraged by what happened. Basically, she violently attacked a man she had no knowledge about.
“I was just angry,” Liesmann later admitted.
It’s nice that she received a new mini-van – but why it was given to her sends a bad message to others who believe her actions were proper. After all, police discovered a hand gun in the stolen car.
As Dallas Police Communications Services Section spokesman, Major Max Geron tweeted shortly after the suspect’s apprehension, “Thankful that the citizens who held the chase suspect weren’t injured by him. (I) would never advise you do that.”
