Sounds like they gambled in more ways than one.

Yes, the parents gambled by leaving the kids in the car alone, but given that one was ten - advanced in years for this sort of recurring story - the odds were pretty good that the kids would be there and alive when the parents returned.

So it was really pretty much of near sure thing.

The kids' college funds on the other hand....

Yep, what were the odds that someone would walk by, see the kids in the car unattended, happen to have a cell phone handy, and knew the numbers for 911?

I wouldn't have placed a bet on that one....

Just to prove the police wrong, you should have started bothering the kid (calling his mom an alcoholic would have been a breat way to do this).

Plenty of ten year olds are able to stay out of trouble and be safe on their own.
Being left in a car is NOT ALWAYS A BAD THING.
THere were PLENTY of times that I WANTED TO BE LEFT IN THE CAR (as a kid) because I WOULD BE SAFER THAN WITH MY ABUSIVE,INSANE PARENTS/GAURDIANS!!
My parents friends/relatives were ALSO ABUSIVE/MOLESTERS/OR CO-CONSPIRATORS WITH PEOPLE WHO COMMIT THOSE CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN! Being far away from them WOULD HAVE BEEN A TREAT, not endangering me!!!
FORCING ME TO LIVE WITH THEM WAS THE DANGEROUS THING (and NO ONE FROM DCAFS WOULD EVEN COME TO MY CITY TO INVESTIGATE ABUSE- the Italian MAFIA/corrupt police would not allow it!!)
