You're being judgemental subby.  Irresponsible parents would have left the car unlocked.

Too bad they've already replicated.

No one can see them in the trunk.

Just remember to shoot a couple of air holes in the hatch!

Before or after you've put the children in?

Depends on how they're behaving....

I only leave my kids locked in the car for no more than 2 or 3 minutes.

Why weren't the children allowed into the courthouse?

doglover: Why weren't the children allowed into the courthouse?


Nope. Creates a problem. Like needing to show up to court while having a suspended license.

FTA, "They are each charged with three counts of Child Neglect, a Class D felony." That should really help out the children. Oh wait. We will wind up paying for them. Cool.

Wait, they left the kids locked in a car outside the COURTHOUSE?!?

Why weren't they charged with being stupid in public?

Sadly, stupidity itself isn't a crime.

They look alarmingly young, in their mug shots.

FTFA: "An officer then asked the 3-year-old boy where his parents were, "Chase told me to put a bottle in her mouth when she cries," the boy replied to the officer, referring to the 7-month-old who was in a car seat between the other two children. "


Wait a minute.  There's a 3 year old, a 23 month old and a 7 month old (is Mom currently pregnant?)... and the three year old refers to his dad as 'Chase'?  Nuh uh.  I wonder how long the Mattingly's have been married, and whether any of the kids are actually his biologically, especially with the 3 year old calling Mom's husband by his first name instead of 'Dad'.

Unless the cop report (or journalist) misquoted the kid.

FTFA: "Police say the vehicle was locked, but one of the back windows had only tape covering it. "

Meaning they're poor and can not afford a babysitter.  Though that does beg the question of why Cammie had to be beside Chase at his Misdemeanor hearing.  He's a grown man.  He doesn't need a Mommy-surrogate to stand beside him in court, when there are children involved.

I didn't think children were allowed in courtrooms, anyway.  There's nowhere to put them, and judges hate distractions, which children would be (especially little ones) (especially especially what amounts to two toddlers and an infant).  Catch-22 for families, especially poor families.

Yeah.  There's neglect with a capital-N, and then there's this situation.  They're basically being punished for not being able to afford a babysitter after being summoned to a mandatory court date.  Not everyone is an illegal with an extended family of stay-at-homes.  Sometimes, you're on your own.

Still, if it was his court case alone, he needed to suck it up and attend by himself.  The article doesn't mention why she also had to be there; if the court required her to be there beside him for whatever reason, though, that's just beyond bogus to then not provide a  place for children and then slap poor people with a Felony for what amounts to the crime of being poor.

I know. Those kids should pull up their bootstraps and get to work, janitoring.

No, the parents should be given parenting classes, with a weekly visit from a counselor.

Wow, the no such thing as personal responsibility brigade is out in full force today.
