Central Floridians, take a tip from Casey Anthony: Make sure your baby is already dead before leaving her in a hot car.

Babies are already tender enough. Slow cooking them is wrong, as wrong as smothering them in ketchup.

When I hit broil on my oven it gets really hot, the display says 525 but it's probably hotter, I doubt the car actually got that hot. That's a good thing though, babies have a lot of fat so you want to go low and slow to render some of that off, then kick the heat up at the very end to crisp up the skin.

"A child, vulnerable adult or animal can experience a debilitating or worse within minutes of being left in a vehicle where temperatures have the potential to sore to 200 degrees during Florida's summer heat.

I woke up the other afternoon thinking I still had my son.  I tore my shiatty apartment apart.  Finally my heart sank and I walked outside in just my boxer shorts.  Thinking and saying please, please, please.  But after seeing the empty car..(it's TX, it's 90 here every day, imminent child car death right now), I realized I'm just an complete farking idiot and realized his mother and I had deviated from normal scheduling for something and that she had him.

I felt like a completely incompetent and completely competent parent both at the same time.  A strange feeling.  Then I realized how much money I had in my bank account and how cheap it would be to head on down to the gun store and remove myself from the gene pool as I would have obviously been worthless should that have happened.  After that I realized how exactly helicopter parents are actually formed.  Then again, nothing especially bad has happened yet. So what the hell do I know? He's 1 and a half.

That is just heartbreaking. Good article, but I stopped reading...

Seems like a good habit for parents of small kids is to have some kind of reminder system in place that there's a kid in the car. A cord from the carseat attached to your arm with velcro so you can't leave the car without the kid maybe?

CruiserTwelve: detention deputy =/= police officer


I went looking for what a detention deputy is, and found this:

http://www.hcso.tampa.fl.us/Careers/SubPages/Career-Opportunities/De te ntion-Deputy.aspx

Meaning he works at a jail, prison, or courthouse holding cells.  He's the same age as the mother, and the article makes no mention whatsoever about the baby's father.  So, 2 + 2 = he's the father, and they both left the baby in the car?

The Deputy was on probation, so there was a chance they actually would have fired him.

Regardless, it's pretty common for LEOs to resign to avoid sanctions for refusing to answer IA questions.  They typically get rehired with backpay after the DA drops decides not to charge them.

200 degrees??? Look, I'm not saying it's not fatal... but IIRC, in the Texas summer I got I think 130F inside the cabin and 150F specifically on the dash.

200F seems absurdly hotter though.  I've never heard anyone else even claim it could get that high.

Normally, I have nothing but pity for people who've forgotten their children in the car. Usually it's due to a change in schedule, or illness/sleep deprivation, and they thought the child was somewhere other than the car.

That wasn't the case with this article:

http://tbo.com/news/crime/authorities-sebring-mother-was-with-boyfri en d-as-child-died-in-hot-car-20130606/

The report said that before she got into her boyfriend's car, she turned the fan on in the car, but not the engine, with the result that the air was not cooled. Espinosa told authorities that while in the boyfriend's car she would look over into the other car at her daughter "and sometimes she was crying and sometimes she was playing with her sippy cup," the report said.

Basically, she was cheating on her husband and got into her boyfriend's car and left the kid in her own car. She watched her kid dying. There are no words.

mesmer242: The report said that before she got into her boyfriend's car, she turned the fan on in the car, but not the engine, with the result that the air was not cooled. Espinosa told authorities that while in the boyfriend's car she would look over into the other car at her daughter "and sometimes she was crying and sometimes she was playing with her sippy cup," the report said.

Basically, she was cheating on her husband and got into her boyfriend's car and left the kid in her own car. She watched her kid dying. There are no words.


Yeah, that's sick.  Throw the book at her.  Thanks for the additional details, the original article didn't have any.

To all you right-to-lifers: there really are people who have no business having babies. Since even I think abortion is a messy business, I'd plump for sterilization at birth. The process would be reversed only for those deemed fit enough to reproduce themselves. Who'd decide? Well, until we could find a suitable candidate, I'd have to do it myself.

fusillade762: Too bad it wasn't Texas. Just plant 150 bucks on the kid and call it good.


But only at night! Daytime and you're screwed.

This. A fine meal like that at least deserves A-1..

H-P Sauce? A reduced balsamic vinegar glaze? Some truffle oil?


Definitely not truffle oil.  Babies are fat enough as it is.

Skyrmion: Several years ago, Gene Weingarten's wrote an award-winning feature on parents who accidentally leave their children in cars to die in the heat. It's well worth a read.


Couldn't finish it.

I believe "baked" is the more appropriate term here. Broiling usually means heat from one direction only.

I bet there would be more outrage and fewer jokes from you Farkers if it were a dog instead of a baby.

Thank you for ruining my day.  Ugh, what a horrible read.  Makes me glad my three year old never shuts up, keeps him and his baby sister safe.

As there should be.

Alonjar: As a parent and somebody who is a self described non-moron... I want to say that everybody saying "it could happen to anyone!" is in fact a farking moron.  You dont forget kids in hot cars.  That shiat doesnt happen unless you were being a shiat parent by leaving them there for any reason in the first place.  A normal parent doesnt "forget" their kid any more than they forget their shoes in the morning.  It.  Doesnt.  Happen.

I guarantee you this involves drugs and/or alcohol the vast majority of the time.  And yes, mommy's little helper counts as a farking drug, you twat.

/end rant


I have to agree with you, there is NO excuse for this.  "Distraction" is such a lame-a*s excuse I don't even want to hear it.

When you are caring for a helpless living thing that is your *first* priority.  It should  prevent you from engaging in "distracting" activities you farking morons.  I don't care if there's a lot of sh*t going on at work -- does your child never cross your mind at least once in an entire day?  You probably should not have kids.

I don't give a damn what that apologist author says.

Hey, Horrible Parents, if you are going to leave your baby in the car on a hot summer day remember to crack the windows!

I dunno, plenty of jokes in the dead dog thread.

But then the dog wasn't car-b-qued so take it as you will

The really pathetic thing is that in the comments there's some dipshiat using this incident to further his ideas about "gun grabbers."

Seriously? You're going to take THIS MOMENT to talk about how you're afraid people are going to take your guns? Seriously?!?!

Man, that sent me down the rabbit hole.

I was vaguely familiar with Weingarten's work.  I should have been more familiar with it.  He's a great writer.  Wit and pathos and all those things that initially draw you into reading.

Dadoody: How the heck are both of those people 23 years old?

I'm 32 years old, and 23 year olds usually look like babies to me. Both of them look like they're 40 years old.


I imagine losing a kid is like entering the presidency - no one's coming out looking their age, and if they do they're probably not human.

*bzzt*  wrong answer...  the hot dog jokes are way too juicy as troll-bait...  on the other hand, misanthropes and sociopaths can probably agree in this case... "yup, we're right..."

Translation:  "I didn't read that article, because I think that I'm so smart that there's nothing I can learn from anyone else."  I agree there's probably nothing you can learn from anyone else, but it's not because you're already so smart.

When you're done learning, you're done.
