Bill Polian has reportedly robbed an Indiana baby. The infant's mother stated to reporters that her child was innocently licking a giant Lolly when Bill Polian grabbed it out of the baby's hand and hurried away in his Ford 36 Volt Golf Cart.
When Polian was approached today to confirm or deny the report, he stated he was surprised by the mother's reaction.
He is quoted as saying, " I did not realize this was an issue. I was looking at the big picture, I was protecting the child from contracting type two diabetes and I believe that is not in the best interest of the mother."
When asked if he regretted the decision, Polian is quoted as stating,
"I can understand now the differing opinion of the mother, however I would hope she can understand where I am coming from."
The mother responded by stating she did not see the reasoning behind the action of Mr. Polian. She did acknowledge the possibility of her child contracting diabetes in the future if she ingested excess sugar or unhealthy foods, but believes the chances according to her and her family's medical history to be extremely low and that the action of taking the child's Lolly does not in any way guarantee the child will not develop diabetes in the future, or any other health complications due to her environment.
The mother is quoted as stating, "Children can develop diabetes through genetics, which is not of their control, or by the environment they live in, which they may have to endure to hold down a job for example. Not consuming one Lolly is probably not going to change anything."
This is not the first time Bill Polian is reported to have stolen a child's candy, on Halloween three years ago he is reported to have stolen bags of candy from children trick or treating without parental supervision near his home.
A local Indiana man states, "The ultimate goal of children is to grow up healthy and have a successful future, you cannot guarantee that they will, sometimes some children are destined to fail at life, others are destined to succeed, too much parental interference is not always a good thing."
In fact the man who wishes to remain anonymous states it is statistical supported children who are strongly controlled by their parents are more likely to become financial failures. Mr. Polian disagrees, however, it should be noted that he has no known children.
