She doesn't receive any public assistance, never has and never will, she is very self sufficient and it does not in anyway bother her or I the comments made. Yes it is for me to deal with and so I have, I let it go and just as courtesy everyone else probably should? You would waste your life commenting about "any" other situation when perhaps maybe re-evaluating your own might be a better start? But for those with positive outlooks or comments "sigh" (posted before mine) or perhaps even Miri. I appreciate your outlook and the fact that some understand that everyone is bound to make a mistake. Look at it this way ( from recent events) she wasn't a woman who on live TV begged for the safe return of her 2 children and for whomever has them not to harm them and yet later that day came back to public television to let the world know they were safe..........that she had murdered them. That is NOT a mistake, shouldn't that be a focus?
ok, so those of us with a conflicting opinion to yours are wasting our lives. but those who agree with have a fulfilling life? Buddy, you need to learn to why a public forum is here: so we can voice our constitutional right of free speech and voice our opinion. You may disagree with that opinion, and that is YOUR right. But don't be a hypocrite about it.

If you would say these things to a human, then you made your bones. You didn't nor will you. Read over this sight. Who is angry? Who is bringing up the constitution? Who typed the ' i dare you ' phrase "Buddy"?
Who takes the in-yer-face attitude? Who said opposing opinions are wasting 'your' life?
Sorry, I didn't see anyone 'agreeing' with the situation. You said it.
Who the hel* is being a hypocrite?
Life c, I find thee guilty on all the above.
Posse time!

Man, this hate thing has me jacked up. Better than steroids.
But I will not be that way. I place my hate in a special place, not seen. Once in a while, it gushes out. As I get older, it lessons in viciousness. Be nice, people.

I brought up the constitution because I voiced my opinion on the situation. And Aspen comes in and says that we should not. He has the right to defend this so-called mother, just as I have the right to say I think she was wrong.
As for being a hypocrite, well, changin, you come in here and preach to me about MY get-in-your-face-attitude, but at the same time you are doing so, you yourself are having a get-in-your-face-attitude. then you ssy you find me guilty. Of what? the same thing YOU just did.
And as for those who are agreeing with the situation, go read ALL the posts, those that keep saying over and over that leaving your kid in a car is just a slip of the mind, and they don't take this occurance as seriously as they should.
And perhaps aspen did not come out and EXACTLY word it the way I put it, but his sentance about wasting your life implys it. If I comment on ANY other situation I would be wasting my life, yet this is an opinion blog and if he thinks people commenting on THIS situation or ANY OTHER is a waste of life, then why is HE here, posting HIS opinion?
I just love people who get on a public opinion forum and get po'ed at people who voice their opinion, usually because it is of an opposing opinion. I may disagree with someone's opinion, and I may tell them so, I may even tell them that they are wrong, wrong, wrong, but I will NOT tell them that they have no right to voice it, nor tell them that they are wasting their lives expressing what they think.
Also who is aspen to tell us to evaluate OUR lives? Just because we say the mother of his child was wrong and put his child's life in jeapordy? Or that we should evaluate OUR lives because we have a negative opinion? This is hypocrisy. I had no quarrel with him when he came on defended the mother. But he had no right to tell me or anyone that I need to evaluate my life. If anyone should be evaluate their life, it should be him, because he needs to think twice and twice again about HIS CHILD. Because that baby's life depends on the adults in his/her life. And his parents need to GROW UP and learn how to take care of him.
It's all well and good to say he forgives the mom. Will she learn now to watch over her child more carefully? I hope so.
You people seem to think that a baby is just well, a toy or something. Leaving a child in a car is not acceptable under any circumstance.

Times really have changed. When I was young and couldn't behave my mother made me wait in the car while the family finished dinner in the restaurant more than once. No one called the police. But then in those days a child was less likely to be abducted. In those days parents actually took their infants with them everywhere they went and carried them in their arms. Now it is possible for parents to pack a baby into a carrier, fit the carrier into a car seat, move the carrier into a stroller, or carry the carrier wherever they go. Mealtimes, a baby is left in the carrier with a bottle proped up on a blanket. Is it any wonder parents can forget their children in the car when so little contact is involved? The only time kids come out of the carrier is to change them! In our search for convenience we forgot that human touch is extremely important to the development of children. It's no wonder there are apathetic little monsters like that boy from Grand Island running around in society today.

I was mostly wrong. I try not to get swept up in
mindless discourse when name calling is involved.
I regret the outburst.

Just got done on the Attica web-site. Read it- someone seems to think that the mother of this child had connections with the Law.Everyone knows she made a big mistake.She is so----------lucky this child is alive.We as humans are not perfect,we are bound to make mistakes.I am sure she is counting her blessings.

Her biracial illegitimate child is genetically designed to tolerate extremes in heat in a mud hut so why is a car a big deal?

remember the lady that left her baby in the car couple yrs ago? no charges because she was seeing a Wyoming county sheriff.The da should be ashamed for letting her go. But in Wyoming county there are a lot of crooked high up people.
