how sad is this response.






I call this BS too, sorry

If he lapsed in memory because his mind was focused on something else instead of he had children in the car and needed to drop them off at daycare on the way go to work, I'd like to know what it was that was more important at the time because he just didn't have any brain activity thats a fact. I just don't think we have all the facts yet and need to wait for the investigation. I just can't imagine him working full 8 hrs and not once going oh ****, and run out to the car. Then he says he got off of work, got in the car and drove for awhile when he say his kids weren't breathing??? What that doesn't make any sense. He's driving along and suddenly now sees the kids which are dead facing the back seats out of his view and stops in the road and gets out yelling? I can't make sense of this story. Doesn't the mother check on her kids where was she?

Not sad at all, I just have questions because this is just to simple an explanation (I just forgot they were in the car) and it deserves a thorough investigation! I don't believe we know all the facts yet. BTW, How many people were sympathetic for Susan Smith who claimed her car with her kids in it was hijacked by a black man only to later find out she pushed the car with her kids strapped in into a lake and killed them? The things people are capable of doing to their kids is mind boggling. Just google up like this and wait till you see how many cases you have never heard of pop up!

You have your option but so do I!

*update*

No upgraded charges, my guess is the whole thing ends up pleaded down to minor charge if not just labeled a horrible accident and matter dropped.

No charges for now but he's due back in court August 27th. I'm not sure if he was putting on an act with his grief as he looks mad in this pic. Had the kids been found alive in the car he would be facing serious charges. The fact that they died, which is infinitely worse, should not be a "get away with it" card.

You seriously think he looks, "mad"?

Not sure anyone else would say that. I certainly wouldn't. He looks so sad.

How do you get "no charges for now" out of "Rodriguez, who is out on $100,000 bail, remains charged with two counts of manslaughter and two counts of criminally negligent homicide in the July 26 deaths of 1-year-olds Luna and Phoenix."

It may be a matter of semantics. The radio reports said "no charges for now" so I used that language. I guess there is a difference between the police charging you with a crime and a grand jury bringing charges. It was the latter that was not done. Here is a definition of the grand jury's role:

Quote:
The grand jury plays an important role in the criminal process, but not one that involves a finding of guilt or punishment of a party. Instead, a prosecutor will work with a grand jury to decide whether to bring criminal charges or an indictment against a potential defendant -- usually reserved for serious felonies.
https://criminal.findlaw.com/crimina...jury-work.html

Here's another version of the story today, this one from the Daily News and I quote:

Quote:
Juan Rodriguez, 39, is due back in court on Aug. 27 for a decision on whether he will face criminal charges in the devastating deaths of the babies in their car seats last week.
https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york...f3m-story.html

I agree it sounds confusing but I didn't make up the quote about no charges for now. It was all over news reports.

I was going by the article YOU POSTED. Not a radio report. Did you read it? It's pretty short and says:

"A grand jury has not yet heard the manslaughter case against the dad whose twin babies died after he left them in a hot car all day, prosecutors said Thursday."

A couple of sentences later, it refers to the charges in the paragraph I quoted above.

I know what a grand jury does. I am 61, have lived in the USA all my life, and liked Civics class.
