While that may be true, prophylactics are comparatively inexpensive. Just saying.

I'm not saying I would, but it was done all the time up until about a hundred years ago. Leaving a kid inside while you went and - you know - FOUND FOOD wouldn't have even been second guess. I don't think it's as bad as you make it out to be.

Well obviously people are going to continue having children they can't afford. They've been doing it since the dawn of civilization.

Good luck changing human nature. Might be kind of difficult.

That is pretty typical of the low end Phoenix area service industry.

Interestingly, the guy is 28, not 18. Even though he's established himself as a moron extraordinaire, he somehow managed to live this long, then do something that stupid.

Very sad.

What makes no sense to me, is the lack of consistency in charging parents who leave kids in the car...some get charges of neglect, others, get charged with nothing, even when the child dies.

In Las Vegas, this has happened several times, no one gets charged....I wonder what the difference is? Looks like SES discrimination to me...

Intent.

The LV school teacher didn't intend to leave his kid locked in the car, he just royally screwed up. The Scottsdale guy intended to.

Both stories are very sad. It appears from the link you posted that the father accidentally left the child in the car as opposed to this case where the father intentionally left the baby in the car. I'm not sure what SES discrimination is?
