Father of the year

A lot of people will tell you that their kids are the mean the world to them. This guy, not so much:
A shoplifter looking to make a quick getaway from a Dutch supermarket after stealing a packet of meat left police a crucial piece of evidence -- his 12-year-old son.

In his haste the 45-year-old thief made a solo dash to his car, batting away a supermarket worker who had flung himself on the vehicles' bonnet in a bid to stop the escape.

Police in the southern Dutch town of Kerkrade said they managed to contact the thief via the boy, but he had refused to return and collect his son. The man told officers to get hold of the youngster's mother instead.
I don't know if they celebrate Fathers Day in the Netherlands, but if they do, something tells me this guy isn't even getting an ugly tie this year.
