Looks to me like she had a lapse in judgement.  She made him walk home.  She just happened to forget that she was on a freeway.

It's ok, the child is insured.

Kind of a dumb thing to do, but jail is excessive.

Couldn't they just ticket her for causing someone to walk on an interstate?  I'm pretty sure that's ticketable.

If the child was NOT left on the freeway and he followed the order even though he could have just ignored it.... oh wow like mother like son. If the kid was left on the freeway because he was kicked out of the car, well he just didn't have a choice. Maybe he'll realize he has the wrong mother.

Endangering a child pretty is a jailable offense, and she forced a child into a retardedly dangerous situation, the very definition of endangering a child.

You might want to avoid threads where people discuss the appropriate responses to things as someone didn't calibrate you properly. Sorry to let you know.

Maybe if safe walkways were taken into consideration when making highways this wouldn't be a problem.

It pisses me off I can't ride my bike to the local grocery store about a mile away because I have to cross one crazy intersection and ride down a half mile of full access 4 lane road.  Maybe if I had those spandex riders pants that make you better than every car or pedestrian out there.  I do have an over-sized SUV with stickers of a single couple and bags of cash on it though.  So I got that going for me.

/I missed in tfa what age the kid was but by 12 they should be capable of finding their way home.

Not sure where you live, but it was pretty damn
dark here last night @8:30. You realize it's October, right?

I had almost the same thing happen to me when I was a kid about that age. Got mouthy one time too many and got kicked out of the car and told to walk the rest of the way home. Of course it wasn't on a freeway or dark out...

My mom did something similar to me as a kid and to this day she still thinks to this day it was okay. I missed my bus at school one day (I was a 4.0 student and all around good kid).

I called her and asked her to pick me up (she was about 3 miles away at her school where she taught 5th grade). After screaming and cussing at me, she told me she wasn't going to pick me up and that if I didn't want to walk the 30 miles home, I needed to walk the 3 miles to her school before she left.

So I walked... Through 100+ degree heat. Through some of the worst ghetto you can imagine. 2.5 miles into it someone drives up behind me (I had already ducked a few pedos and criminals on my way there). I was scared... Thank God it was my JROTC instructor.

He wanted to know why I was walking through that area (he had to drive that way on his way home). I told him, so he offered me a ride. I told him my mom would freak out if she saw him drop me off and that I'd just walk the rest of the way. He insisted and told me to get in. He dropped me off a block from her school (so she wouldn't see) and told me she shouldn't have made me walk through that neighborhood as it was dangerous.

He offered to "have a talk with her", but I told him that would just make my life worse, and I thanked him for the ride. He told me if that ever happened again to just give him a call and gave me his number.

He died a few years later of a heart attack. The kids at my school gave him a hard time about the way he looked (called him Popeye) and were generally asses to him unless they knew him well -they probably drove him to an early grave. -He was a kind hearted, good man, and a great role model.

My mom's still alive to this day.

More likely she had a lapse in her daily meth dose...   or at least she looks that way... or something...

My 7 year old got in trouble the other day for telling some rotten kid that kept throwing everyone's lunch boxes around to go play in traffic. Well, in trouble at school anyway. We had a good laugh on this end.

Depends on the hemisphere.  So, you need a map and a calendar to see the redundancy.

I have made my son walk home, but not along a road more than 40 mph speed limit.  The power locks didn't work on the car we had at the time, and he ignored my warnings about what would happen if he didn't remember to lock his door.  I chose that punishment to show him what would happen if the car was stolen.  It was only two miles.

/our sunset was about 6:30-6:40, I know since I drove home with the sun just getting below the trees.

If she had made him play with a vacuum aspirator and a cannula ten years earlier this never would have happened.

I'm so freaking proud of my town and it's inhabitants!

That part of the freeway is awful. Lots of construction.
