Britney Spears Defends Baby Car Photos

Thu Feb 09, 2006 2:32 am

This is the photograph of singer Britney Spears driving a car with her baby son sat on her lap.



Several pictures of the incident had circulated unofficially on the internet prompting a defence from the pop star.

What do you think? Is it a lot of fuss over nothing? Was she justified?

I think the fact that she's britney spears (and the fact that she's a retard) encourages people to complain about her and whatever she does. The baby should have been in a childseat in the back. But hey we always see it on planes, mums holding their children on their laps on take-off and landing when they should be seated.

Except she really didn't need the kid there playing that part.....she's pretty much an airbag herself  wink .

I thought that not securing your child in a suitable harness/seat was an offence. And the excuse that she gives about being chased by the paparazzi, well, she doesn't look particularly worried in the photos.








 Yeah sure

Is that not her hubby sitting in the passenger seat, could he not have held the child, it looks like he is just talking on his cell phone? Though no one should have a young child in the front seat.

There was a childseat in the back, which makes it so much more irresponsible. And if she was in such a hurry to get away from some papparazzi's, why not hand the child to the person in the passenger seat?

No, she wasn't justified...

But I think people should focus more on the perfectly normal (and not celeb...) people who do this EVERY DAY... Britney Spears isn't the only one... yet, it only comes up when she does it.

MSNBC is reporting that Child Services will investigate if Britney Spears is risking endangerment of her child, and some have compared the drive to Michael Jackson dangling his son over the hotel balcony in Berlin.

I thought it was one's own weaknesses causing extinction that constituted Darwinism not stupidity on the part of one's parents.

To me this is stupid and borders on child abuse. At the very least this displays unfit parenting. I don't care who you are, some punishment should be in order for this type of nonsense.

It also appears that Ms. Spears wasn't wearing here seat/lap belt either. That should get her a ticket too. While Spears was wrong by law and common sense in her actions here, I can understand her paranoia that caused here to take those actions. Perhaps what she should do is have a separate driver rather than drive herself and so she can give full attention to her new child.
Despite a new law in California that limits photographers/papparizzi in there actions (mainly as to use of long distance lenses to tresspass), they are still very threatening. We have seen a number of actions by clebs react and do dumb things to evade these sucm.
I do fear that someone whom is a major celeberty will be killed someday - much like Princess Diana was killed - by the attempts to evade the papparazzi. Worse, is the fear that there could be among a group of papparazzi who is a kidnapper or nutcase looking for their target.

I think this ranks as high in the stupidity stakes as the idiot I once saw on one of the busiest freeways in this country. I was driving at the legal speed limit of 120 km/h when a guy in a BMW drove past me going quite a bit faster than myself, and there was a little girl of roundabout 3 or 4 years of age STANDING on the front passenger seat, not strapped in in any way, shape or form.

This is the same family, where her husband wanted to get the kids ear pierced and she was shouting at him in public to stop him.

I mean jeez make the kid a chav before he is even 6 months old.

Yes it is darwanism in her case, it is her mental weakness that doesnt allow her to put the kid in the right place, hinders the train of thought.

Cars and aircraft are different. An infant does not have to be seated in their own seat, even if the Fasten Seatbelt sign is on.

I guess this is what you can expect from Britney Spears, who only has a 9th grade education.

I hope the police use these pictures and prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law for endangering her child’s life. Make a public example of her on how not to drive with your child. I also think the police should even contact the child welfare people and have them conduct an investigation.

As said before, one fender bender and her child’s neck would be broken like a twig.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't? Obviously you missed the point. The proper thing to do with an infant is to strap them in a child seat in the back of the vehicle, or then in a proper child seat on the front passenger seat. Holding a child on your lap is plain stupid, whether in the front or the back.

Well from what I read earlier today, she isn't going to be charged for anything as a result of this. So she didn't have her seat belt on AND had her child in her lap while driving and gets nothing......A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.......  sarcastic 

My view on this whole issue is that I understand her for wanting to get away from the photographers....but my question is: why not just hand the baby over to the bodyguard who was just sitting there talking on his cell?  Confused

Oh and is Britney going broke or something? A lincoln navigator? Whatever happened to the ultra fancy cars she was driving?

LA County Sheriff's Office has said they cannot charge Ms. Spears as, not only were her actions not witnessed by a deputy, but it's unclear as to whose jurisdiction she was in at the time.

She probably thinks that she is indestructible because she drives that piece of S*** status-symbol bulldozer around, and her sub-shoe-size IQ does not allow her to realize that she is endangering the child. It's good she is not wearing her own seatbelt either since this will allow her to crush the little one to death against the steering wheel on the offchance that the baby is not ejected through the window.

I can only speak from personal experience but in all my years in law enforcement (not to mention when just out during every day driving when off duty), I have never seen someone driving with an infant on their lap as these pictures depict. I have never been sent to handle a complaint of someone driving with an infant on their lap either. I have, however, handled countless complaints of children (and even pets for that matter) being left unattended in parked vehicles which tells me that if someone were to witness what Ms. Spears did, they would not hesitate to call the police. So, for you to say "people do this EVERY DAY" might be a bit of a stretch. I think it's a safe bet that it's not being done "EVERY DAY", at least not from where I'm from. Again, I am speaking from personal experience only.
It would have been nice if the asshole who was busy snapping the photos had taken a minute to give the cops a call so she could have been stopped and cited.
