so many folks :Forgetting" their kids are still in the car... well its time to pay the piper I guess, this is what happens when you raise your kids by plopping them down in front of the TV and not making them be responsible for their actions, themselves and their own.... now, not only did we raise a generation of people who need "help" by drugs or therapy or welfare, state / government aid, but they also now have to be reminded to take their kids out of the car with them!

Craig Ms. Evelyn A. Alvarez didn't forget, she intentionally left them in the car to go shopping. Easier to shop I guess,

Don't people pay attention to the news? I guess not or else think it won't happen to them.

The saddest part are the people on here who make bullshit excuses for them.
