    For anyone that thinks this is ok, is a fool, shouldn't have kids and needs to get some sort of treatment to find out why they think this is ok.

    Viking416: I am sure you are joking. Child asleep in car is no excuse for leaving them alone. I give the person who called the cops a lot of credit. Many folks would not care to get involved

    I left my nephew in my car to run in a convenience store once but was only gone 5 minutes & looked out window a few times. That was over 15 years ago.

    I am sorry I have no sympathy for this woman. You don't leave your child in the car unattended no matter how long you will be.

    "She should have covered him up so no one could see him. It was 52 degrees yesterday, and there was no reason to think that the vehicle would get too hot."

    Wow. Impressive.
