I have seen many a video of abductions when the police are searching for the missing parties. They use the video to get descriptions of people and cars. What in the world would possess someone to think that the children would be o.k. just because there was cameras regardless of the temps. I am certain this happens everyday at shopping centers everywhere, it is just another example of todays society being acceptant of our children being considered throw aways and not putting their care into the forfront of our actions. He obviously considered that something could happen to them if he left them alone, and dismissed that thought because there were cameras. He is indeed an idiot.

If the cops was smart, they should have shot the idiot father and left him on the road to bleed to death and die.

Another argument for forced sterilization; or in his case total removal of all sex organs so that no other children will be born that can be treated this way.

I'd worry more about the kids being abducted than even the cold weather.. THAT is what makes him stupid.

I live here in Millington near this Wal-mart and it was really cold that day. This guy is an idiot and glad someone turned him in. They say it's not the first time he's left his kids alone, but this is from Media reports.

I'm a Mother of 4 and Grandmother of 7 from 3 to 14. I would never have left any of them in the car but my question is should I call the police every time I see kids this age walking to school by themselves? or playing out in the neighborhoods by themselves? I do see this everyday in Memphis which is connected to Millington. Isn't that just as dangerous? The Police would not have time to do anything else if our concerned citizens called 911 every time.

You are all funny. Do you same people know or even care that if a truck Driver idle's his semi in cold / hot weather he can get a large fine. I know he is not a child but if you leave an animal / children than that just unexceptable but it ok to make a working man that has to take 10 hours off in a cold / hot truck or face fines. According to our faithful Goverment that's ok we some how survive but let it be a child or animal ha you are no good son of -------. you are all funny!!!

Something else that has not been mentioned here, is that those children could have been abducted and never heard from again!!!!!!! I see the same thing with pets too, people leave them alone in the hot summer time in the sweltering heat with only a window cracked for them to get air!!!!!Good Lord, why couldn't he just have taken them into the store with him????? All grocery stores now have those carts that are shaped like cars for the kids to sit in while the parents shop!!!!!
