roc6783: AverageAmericanGuy: When I first heard this story on the radio, I felt really bad because I had thought of all the times I could have gotten distracted and forgotten my kid in the car on a hot sunny day. Luckily, that never happened. He's 9 now and would give me hell if I tried to leave him in the car.

But now this? I see the pictures of the kid, and I am dying a little inside. I can't imagine the kind of farked up person that father must be for seriously contemplating killing the boy and then going through with it.

An accident, I can understand. And for a couple days I sympathized. Today, all I can muster is anger and hate.

I frequently joke that my billion dollar invention is a tranquilizer gun for use on kids with no side effects other than an instant 2 hour nap. My proposed tagline, "All the fun of shooting your kids with none of the side effects." This piece of filth makes me feel really bad for making a tasteless joke.

Lachwen: doglover: If you're a teacher, I can see losing a kid for awhile. It happens. School is kid jail and some of them actively try to escape when possible. But do you know how long it takes to realize you've mislaid one of dozens of other people's kids? About two minutes tops. Even when they're dressed in the same uniform and you don't even know their names, it's pretty easy to notice a void where a child should be.

No one who "forgets" their kid is worthy of being a parent. Give this guy a bottle of hemlock and 24 hours to do the right thing.

My mom forgot me once.  At a park.  I was three or four years old, and she got so wrapped up in picking up my older (5-ish) brother from day camp and getting him into the car (he didn't want to leave the park) that I slipped her mind.  She was halfway home when she realized that there were supposed to be  two kids in the car.

I was fine.  I honestly hadn't even realized she had left.  Having too much fun on the merry-go-round to notice mom and brother had disappeared.

Yes, it is possible to forget your kid.  This does not necessarily make you a horrible parent.  My mom did a good job by me.


I never forgot my kid as a baby but I did fall asleep and neglect to pick her up at midnight after a marching band trip. She has still never let me live that down.

How I would change the death penalty:

Jan 1st of every year we clean out death row. You can have your appeals up until then, but once the 1st hits, you're done. If you got there Dec 30th, it sucks to be you. You have a day and a half for appeals. Hope the next day is a business day. (I bet you'd see the crime rate drop around Christmas time!) Of course I would make the execution at noon, so you could sleep in. I have some compassion for these convicts..

Now how to handle the actual execution. You're gonna have several people to take care of at once. You don't really have time to waste strapping each on into the chair, putting the hood over their face, giving each one a prayer. So what you do is handcuff everyone together.  Like a big chain, like they could be the winning team at Red Rover. You then wire the first guy to hot and the last guy to neutral. Give them their last words (Attention group, you've got 30 seconds. Ready, go!) Say a quick prayer for the whole lot,  and turn on the juice. And clean up is a cinch. They are already linked. Just grab the first guy and drag the whole pile to the dump truck. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

"I thought I could change him....." said no abused woman ever

If you could have this guy "rehabilitated" would you be OK with the state mandating that he is your childcare provider?
How about convicted rapists/abuser/murderer?... Would you let them be your wife/daughter/mother/son's personal assistant?


Most ostentatiously pious "progressives" are pretty NIMBY, as a rule.  "I want to save the world within 500' of me because I'm better than you." In other words, this dame.

life in prison, no parole, being beaten and raped daily by other inmates, oh yah, that's the one, just punishment for things like this guy

understand your position
still
if you have captured a rabid dog
do you put it down
or place in a cage and poke with sticks

put him down
(mind you if it takes a bit and he screams a lot - ill just quibble about the time its taking)

Besides making us feel better what else does executing people do?

Nothing. It is wrong to take a life. It shows that we are no better than them

E5bie: mcnguyen: Gaylord Fister: It doesn't say if he googled that before or after his son died. If he did it afterwards, he just might have wanted to know how long the kid suffered.

Yeah, when he did those searches makes a big difference.  The only other thing mentioned in the article is that first responders didn't think his answers "made sense".  He could have just been really shaken up that he accidentally killed his kid.  Plus many first responders are idiots, just like any other group.  I'll wait for better info before sharpening my pitchforks.

Sometimes, you can just tell when a person is lying. First responders have experience with panicking, shaken up people. They have some idea about the range of reactions. Another thing mentioned in the article: it was his work's on-site daycare. Which sort of indicates that dropping off kid and picking up kid would be an every day thing, not a shared duty, which drops the likelihood of forgetting considerably. Maybe the question was asked, "Who put the kid in the car this morning?" at which point his play-acting body language went from detectable to obvious. Speculation, of course.

Personally, I'm ready with the pitchforks even if it was an accident (doubt it). That's not the sort of accident that careful parents have. You don't forget your kid. Especially not a toddler, whose existence shapes most of your waking moments outside of work. Doesn't. Happen.

I have just always assumed that the phenomenon of the "l'il sizzler," whereby a parent "accidentally forgets" their kid in a hot car, then looks appropriately glum and remorseful, followed by a DA not bringing charges against them because they've "suffered enough already" is nothing more than a unofficially socially acceptable method of postnatal abortion. I just assumed there was some unspoken rule amongst people with kids that if you want to get rid of your squalling crotchspawn, pulling a l'il sizzler was the way to do it.

Because I still can't figure out--even after reading Gene Weingarten's Pulitzer-winning article about it--how in the fark anyone can forget a kid in a car. You're telling me that after shoveling the crapload of weird supplies you need for a kid (diapers, snacks, wipes, juice, DVD player and Baby Einstein CD, stuffed toys, etc.) in the car, along with a huge honking car seat, and then driving around with a dribbling, excreting, screaming thing throwing toys and body fluids around, that you "just forget" about it? I call shenanigans. People do this on purpose.
