Who the hell are you to judge this man?

You don't know this guy. In fact, I think it's a pretty safe to say that you have never experienced whatever struggle he is/was experiencing.

No sane person would WANT this for their child. However, the man did what he felt he had to do, as clearly no one was coming to his rescue to help him out.

I hope the baby is able to recover and that things will get better for the father. I also hope any business owners out here who overwork and underpay their employees feel at least some guilt after this incident.
Are you f-ing serious?

This is an online thread. What did you expect was going to happen?

Don't have kids if you aren't mature enough, and lack the financial means to support children!

Who the hell thinks keeping an infant locked in a car is a viable alternative in lieu of a babysitter

No justification or defense exists for this, other than the possibility that the father may have some mental deficits. No job takes precedence over a human life, particularly one's own child.
Are you aware of how much day care costs? I pay $850 a month.

As a working mother, I feel quite safe in saying that this man is not smart enough to continue parenting. IF he really thought that an 8 hours day in the car (but with the AC on) was a satisfactory solution for this infant. Find a good daycare; babysitter; family, surround yourself with friends that have kids and help each other out. That's what we did.

Sweet Jesus.

I understand feeling desperate to keep a job; I do. But this does not justify his actions in any way shape or form. Working parents must always have a back-up plan. ONE that does not involve your one year old spending all day in a car.

I actually have more sympathy for those pathetic parents who 'forget' their kid is in the car. I honestly could see how that could happen with all that we have on our minds and plates today. It doesn't excuse it - but I could see how it could possibly happen to overworked, stressed out, tired, and frazzled parents.

But, on purpose? No.

Sad parenting, sad mentality from OP. Poor kid is stuck between a rock and a hard spot. He'll probably end up in foster care, which honestly isn't much better than being left in a car with the windows rolled up.
Sad.

I keep seeing "just get day care" in this thread. Day care is expensive. Telling someone to "get day care" is like telling them to "get a mortgage".

I agree leaving a baby in a car is dangerous. I could see leaving them at home though. They did it all the time in the olden days.

Some people really can't afford day care.

I cannot believe someone could try to justify the actions of this inept Father. This does NOT point to a job crisis, this points to child neglect plain and simple.

You would leave a 1 year old child home alone while you went to work? Really!? Just as bad as the idiot who left the kid in the car.

Brokale huh? figures.

I am frankly surprised that they would even let someone like "Brokale" IN SCOTTSDALE. I guess they must be getting desperate for low lifes to do their dirty work jobs. Nice mugshot too. Love those tattoos, dude.

Raising a child is expensive. You don't have one if you can't take care of it and plan on neglecting it.
