He needs to sit in that truck in the same temps that he left his sons in. Sorry fool who should never be a father. Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad, which this man is not.

If he didnt want to take them shopping with him in the first place , why not get the grandmother to watch them.Any one with half a brain knows not to leave kids alone.Especially in the winter.All it take sis about 5 minutes for frost bite or worse to set in.Just wish some people would use the brain the good Lord gave them.

This "man" is just too stupid to live. And thank God for the customer who was concerned, and smart enough, to contact police. Why people like this guy even have children is beyond comprehension, but it's probably the only thing he knows how to do. Absolutely disgusting.

I think everyone is over reacting on this one, yes he shouldn't have left the kids alone in the car that not what I'm talking about, the 27 degrees outside doesn't mean it's 27 degrees inside a car that was just driven provided the heater is in working order, think about it. Now if the boys had no coats on they could be cold but they are not going to freeze in those temps. Yes he should have taken the kids with him for their safety but they wouldn't have frozen to death or even gotten frost bite.

Have you ever sat in a car in 27 degrees ? It gets cold in there in no time at all.No one said he left the car running.He should have never left those boys alone in the first place period! Now a days it is not safe.

Wrong answer ... Children are not safe because of a surveillance camera if so we would just install cameras when a child is born ,no responsbilitiy from this Dude.. Children don't need to be with parents if they have not gotten the concept any better than this that abductors are not stopped by camera nor do they keep a child warm... IDIOT>>>

I don't know the reason why someone would leave a child in a car no matter what the weather at those ages and I am sure he did not fill that what he was doing was wrong but you never know what could happen in this day and time but I am sure he will think twice before doing it again. This does not mean that he is a bad father just that he made a mistake.

Yes, he is a bad father. If he would leave his children in a car alone in 27 degree weather, what else has he done?
