I can't believe the father had the audacity to criticize the man who called the police for not taking the baby out of the heat. HELLO its your kid, why did YOU take him out of the heat. Typical irresponsible behavior. Expect others to do something for you, that you should have done in the first place.

I always left my son in the car while I pumped gas, then paid for it. Is this something similar?

If it is, then I guess all these comments are for me too. Come on over with the cuffs.

I believe the right actions were taken. You NEVER leave a child in the car alone...and on a hot day to boot. Plus, what if someone would have taken that poor little baby. It is upsetting to know people are that dumb. And for the mother to forgive him and yell at the neighbors... Duh.

Big Daddy - I don't think that's the same thing. I pay at the pump, but do leave my baby in the car. The man who did that should not be having someone take up for him. He is irresponsible.

you have got to be kidding me..........you NEVER, get it......NEVER leave a child alone in the car when you are not there..........What would this couple have done IF their child died due to heat? Oh, and boo hoo the handcuffs were too tight. I guess if you would have taken the child in with you (regardless if sleeping or not), you wouldn't have to be dealing with any of this.

Sounds like they both need counseling and heaven help this child.

I have 2 girls (now grown)but would have NEVER NEVER let them alone in the car by themselves for anything in the world. You can wake a child up that is living, but if one dies in the heat - they don't wake up.

I have to agree with all the comments beging posted. These two are idiots. I feel sorry for the child - he doesn't stand a chance. The mother must be a real piece of work too - yelling at her neighbors! Child services should keep a close watch over the child...

My my my, from my understanding, mother is a woman who goes around having sex and then suing the man for rape, daddy never worked a day in his life, gets SSI, both do drugs and hve been arrested for shoplifting many times, their baby has been seen with female feminim products tapes to his rear because they don't have any diapers for him, half the time he has no milk or baby food, money is used for more important things, cigarretts and drugs and what not. Somebody needs to check these two out. I don't think they are mentally able to bring up a child. Case in point, daddy leaving the child in a hot car wile he leaves to go do whatever.

How do folks like these get away with what they do? Someone needs to investigate them before the little dies from their obvious neglect and irresponsibility. Can't work? I understand that this man doesn't work now, he gets SSI and whatever his momma will give him. He's her little darling and can't do no wrong. Watch out, mom wil join her precious son in suing the police, the neighbor who reported this idiot, and anyone else who they think they can make a quick buck off of. Girlfriend will probably join them in this endeavor too.

I hope this couple doesn't have another child or plan on having any more! I also don't think God would approve of leaving an infant in a car in 100 degree heat. If it was 100 outside, the heat inside the car was even higher, even with the windows down. How would these people have felt if the neighbor hadn't called police and their baby had died or suffered brain damage from the heat??? I guess THAT would have been God's plan!!!! If that would have been the case, it would have only been because he knew the baby would have been better off in heaven with him than with his moron parents!!!!!!! How can ANYONE justify leaving a baby inside a car, unattended no matter what the temperature is outside. There are so many people out there (loving people) that want children so much and for whatever reason, can't have any. Then morons like this couple have them and could care less. Don't deserve children because they don't know how to care for them. I hope this little one makes it to adulthood.
The cuffs too tight!!! Seriously!! Too damn bad they were arount his neck!!!! He and his wife should be locked inside a car in 100 degree heat with the windows down just a little for an hour and see how they like it!!!
How stupid can some people be????
CAN'T FIX STUPID!!!!!!
These people are not married but just friends that had a baby but yet they are so religious.!Get real!People make mistakes but this is a big one.I hope that child has better sense than the parents do when it reaches adulthood.

Ugh...first he said went to just get medical papers and was talking to the mother's dad!!! Well, if you ran up to the door and grabbed the papers and went straight back to the vehicle that would be a different story but they flat out said in the first story that he went into the house and stayed to talk about the mother!! He knew the baby was in the car and that he was leaving him there to talk to the mothers dad!! Now he says he thought the baby was sleeping with a bottle in his mouth!!! HELLO, that is even worse...not only was the baby cooking in the vehicle but could have potentially choked on whatever was in the bottle because the baby was not being attended to WHILE drinking a bottle!!! For one thing, if the baby had a bottle in his mouth, I'm sure the baby was awake...who leaves a bottle in a baby's mouth while they are sleeping?? No matter what this whole thing says NEGLECT and jeopardizing the welfare of a child!! If the neighbor went past and the baby was crying (probably because the bottle fell and because he was HOT!!) and came back 20 minutes later and the baby was STILL crying, there was no way the baby was in there ONLY 7 minutes!!!! And now he wants to make a disability claim from the handcuffs like he was treated with brutality!!?? He probably intensionally strained his hands in the cuffs by pulling at them to leave marks to say they were tight...I hope the docs, disability and courts are much smarter then that and don't allow them to have a defense!! Too many times parents are left go with neglecting children by making stupid excuses and then it continues and worse happens to the child! And blaming the neighbor on any of it is crazy...he questioned why the neighbor didnt take him out of the car!!! Is he serious! He did what he should have and called the cops! Maybe he could have went door to door BUT then the dad would have came out,maybe, and left and would have gotten away with it...and probably have done it again, later in the summer when it is much more hotter and humid...it's good he got caught NOW!!!!

If it's a "mistake",you admit your wrong doing and try to fix it...he is plain out trying to say it's everyone elses fault now like he did no wrong and now trying to benefit from it with disability claims and trying to say the neighbor should have done more!!!...BIG difference!!!!

Folks, I know this couple, and most of what you have said fits them to a tee. He doesn't work and collects SSI, she doesn't work, goes around and has sex with anyman she can get and then sues them for rape (I'm not kidding). She is also bi-polar, he's mentally slow and boh have been arrested for shoplifting and such. He's dirty and foul mouth and so is she. I could call them pigs, but I don't want to demean the pigs I would be associating them with. They are only in for whatever they can get for themselves. His mother i no better. She taught her son well (try and get what you can without working for it). I truely feel sorry for the little baby, what a group of peope to bring him up in.
