Yet another child gets left alone for hours...
I read in my newspaper this morning about another poor child being left alone in a car. It was reported in Monterey. The parents arrived at a movie theatre and found that their 3 year old fell asleep. Being the "good parents that they are", they didn't want to wake the poor child, so they made an executive decision to leave him alone in the car while they went in and enjoyed the movie!!!
While the parents were enjoying their sodas and popcorn, a passerby saw the child and waited for the (unknown) parents to come out and get their kid. After about 20 minutes, the good samaritan called the police. The police arrived and removed the child from the car and notified CPS.
Later that evening, the parents called the police to report that their child was missing. The police told them that they had the child. The parents were subsequently cited for a misdemeanor charge and at the most could get a year in jail. (yeah, right!)
The child was in the custody of CPS. It was not said if/when they were going to return the child to the loving parents.
These people don't deserve a kid!!!
I say to put the poor kid up for adoption to a family that actually wants a child. Obviously, these parents find that having a kid is too much of a burden for them.
Can you imagine??? Purposely leaving your child in a car while you go in and watch a movie???
I just hope that the immediate feelings that they experienced when they found their child missing will last them a lifetime! They deserve much worse!
They should be hung up by their short hairs...
