What is going on with parents leaving infants in cars to roast to death?
Rarely will I cite CNN as a source, but I found:
Simply mind boggling.
More amazing is the fact that I have seen a few news reports that suggest that putting something important in the back seat will help you remember that the baby is there.
What can be more important than your child?
Your cell phone?
Your gym bag?
I recall seeing a news story on The Weather Channel where a young, professional couple were being interviewed after the mother left her baby in the car for a day in Cincinnati. They were discussing the events leading up to their baby’s death just like it was a little mistake. I saw no emotion, no regret. No pain.
Has it really come to this?
Has the value of a human life been diminished to this extreme?
What the hell is going on?
You don’t believe me? Watch this 2-minute news report, suggesting you might be more likely to remember your cell phone is in the back seat than you are your baby.
I kid you not.
