    What is wrong with people these days! Every time I turn the news on its another parent or adult leaving a child in the car. How would they feel to be locked in a car for hours or even minutes when its 90 degrees outside! All I can do is pray that the would becomes a better place.

    An entire generation of people who are to d*amn lazy to do what they should. These kids are popping out babies because it is a way to get government assistance so they don’t have to work. This guy was to lazy, to stupid, or both to take his kids in with him.
    I don’t want to hear the story did not say anything about being on assistance. You all know better and all of us who are working, pay for them.

      im not defending this man because this is horrible, but was the guy who actually killed his child in georgia after leaving him in a hot car on assistance? What does being on assistance have to do with being an idiot?

  • its my business

    My children are 3 years a part and I can’t tell you ALLLLL the times I would take the baby and the toddler into the grocery with me and spend neary an hour shopping. That was my only option… Kind of like a postal driver, I did it through hail, rain, sleet and snow. And 90 degree temps. Get a grip parents. Or, order online and have the food brought out to you in brown sacks and plastic bags. I don’t care if you are just runnig in for milk at a gas station – – l Do not leave your children or your pets in a car anytime! Not only will a child suffer, its a buls eye for a thief. Again, get a grip!
