After Vancouver cop yells at mom over kids left in SUV, police chief speaks to media
It's puzzling to me that this still happens. Not only to (human) children, but also to pets.
"You just stay here locked in this hotbox while I go do a few things..."
What's also puzzling is that often, the response seems to be "well, they were otherwise a great parent" or "well, it's understandable that this could happen" or "well, anyone can make a mistake".
At least when you drive totally drunk you have the excuse of being totally drunk.
Last Friday I went to pick up a pizza. I called in my order ahead of time so I'm only picking up. My oldest son who is 4 wants to come along(all my kids love to go outside). I believe it was warm upper 20's. So I have all 4 windows open and the sunroof open when I park the car. I tell my boy to just wait in the car since I'm parked in front of store and will only be a minute. I get inside the store and these freekin clowns screw up my order and will have to make another pie. I tell them ok I'm getting my boy he's not waiting in the car by himself. I bring in my boy and he's very exited to be in the pizza shop. I start getting real pissed off at the staff for screwing up a simple order and since I'm a regular customer for 10+ years they give me 2 additional pies and extra dipping sauces free of charge. I tell the staff I can't stay angry at them because they treat me good. Best part is my son gets a good lesson in life from just being with me.
Ya that woman deserved to get scolded at! And I have myself yelled at people who had it coming.
tl;dr version: "they screwed up my pizza!!!" :)
2nd child dies in 2 days
Stop making excuses for these irresponsible adults
Take away their kids!!
Might I suggest another remedy? Particularly since "taking away" a dead child isn't much of a deterrent?
If kids are found in a sweltering car while parent is in the mall trying on hats, what if we took away their CAR? No need to break up a family just to keep those kids from being locked in a hotbox.
And take away their pets too!
