Georgia Toddler left in Car

This story just breaks my heart and angers me to the core. I do believe the father intentionally left that beautiful little boy in the car ( I know he is innocent until proven guilty) but I am not buying that he honestly forgot his son was in the back seat. What do you think?

It is sad that the little boy died in the car. Obviously the father and mother are currently both innocent as neither has been convicted of any crime. Some of the comments the mother made seem odd to me. Also, it is strange that the father did not notice his son when he went to the car midday. Hopefully the investigators will be able to confirm either criminal intent or sad happenstance.

I think that the courts will decide.

I think I almost left my toddler in the car one dark and cold night...fortunately he woke up when I closed my door and made a noise.

What I can't believe is that we have to keep telling people this every single summer. DON'T LEAVE KIDS OR PETS IN HOT CARS. Now how tough can that possibly be??! Frankly, I think most of the people who do this, do it on purpose.....surely they can't have missed ALL the public service announcements from their friendly local radio hosts, TV news anchors and billboards. There's a lot of stupidity out there, but you don't just "forget" to drop your child off at day care, then go to the car a few hours later WITHOUT seeing him or her and go back to whatever it was you were doing. It boggles the mind.

Sorry, but I've been on a continuous rant on this topic ever since summer began and it seems that every day or two there's another tragic story about some poor child left to suffocate in extreme heat. It makes my blood boil! I hope karma bites these dirtbags hard.....and if not in this life, well, it's going to be REAL hot where they're going.

I have a hard time deciding each individual case. Fortunately (for me, at least) it isn't up to me to decide. I can see how if it is not the parent who usually drops the kid off, or if you have a sleep-deprived parent who's functioning on two of four cylinders and the baby is quiet, I can see how things happen. I mean we lock our keys in the car, we lock ourselves out of the house, we forget about the spaghetti on the stove. It's a whole lot more consequential when it's a child but we can still forget. I'm really grateful it hasn't happened to me.

This is a strange case, it seems, beyond simple forgetfulness.

But in many cases it sesms no one could punish a parent for doing this more than a parent will punish themselves. I know I wouldn't want to be the one living directly with responsibility for my child's death.
