Yeah, you don't want to leave a baby's engine running.
 
2021-09-07 11:15:24 PM  
Well I can't bloody well turn it off can I?

"I can't believe this happened to me". It didn't happen to her, it happened because of her, to her child. Any one who leaves a baby in the car is an idiot. Leaving it running just makes it worse.

So it's okay to leave the baby in a car with the engine off?

I think I'm getting some mixed messaging here...

This is why we should give babies guns.

Crack the windows and take the keys with you, and your kid will be there when you get back.

So auto theft charges, and I'm sure they'll add dangle kidnapping in front of him to get a guilty plea. That's some bad choices, even for 19

So she left the car running and unlocked but also:

The car seat was flipped over; the baby was under the car seat

She just rested the baby seat on the car seat without belting it in?  Baby seats don't just flip over when they're restrained.

Oh, no no no no no no no. You've got the completely wrong take on it. Clearly, baby seats are dangerous and ought to be made illegal.

Baby seals, on the other hand, are adorable and should be saved. Save the seals!

Shoot the whales.

What about a baby in a car that won't come out of park without the fob?  Can you let bsby sit in the drivers seat and push the buttons to see if there's any mistakes in the automotive code

At least in my truck I have the option of putting it in park, grabbing the key out of the ignition and locking the door.

She was not smart in her actions.

"The car seat was flipped over"

That's what happens when you accidentally forget you have a baby seat somewhere in the back of your car, and it ends up in the front seat where your baby sits.

Kids aren't accessories.

Abandoning the car to the chasing mom as soon as you find out you grabbed a kid is probably a fairly good choice, actually.  I'm not sure you can even kidnap someone unintentionally.

Let me be the first to blame the victim.

If you're the prosecutor with a budget and he's a young Black guy with a public defender? He's as good as convicted.

The victim needs to be blamed.
1) Left baby in car.
2) Baby seat not strapped in
3) "I found my car!  should be " I found my baby!"

Why are you blaming the victim?

You would. Jerk.

Important thief tip: Check the back seat before driving off; no car is worth being stuck with a toddler for 20 minutes.

I'm with you on this except the victim is the kid. All three things you list, and an inherent cynicism that explains how I found my way to Fark, make me almost wonder if she's just tired of being a mom.

Having lived in Florida for a few years, 15 years ago, I can say it is ILLEGAL in FL to leave a kid or a pet in a car, period.

Too bad he didn't notice the kid first and go "Hey man!  Somebody left a baby in the car!"

Or take some pics/video and try "Nice car.  Sign the title over to me and I won't send this to CPS."
 
2021-09-08 3:19:57 PM  
Then send it to CPS  anyway
