If this was a woman...or if this was a dog.....charges would of been filed....why is there special consideration applied in this case....8hrs of neglect of a 1 year old is in demand of responsibility to be take in this action. Social services would of taken the child away if this was a mother or a female caretaker....something is very wrong in this case...I do not know what goes on at 210 Morris Road or what his position is, but there is something to this. Too many questions unanswered. Why didn't the day care question where this 1 year old was if he was suppose to drop him off...there is no defense for this action.

I think that forgetting the baby's in the back seat is about the same as forgetting to take your lunch out of the back seat. You'll want either/both eventually, but when you get to work at 8:00am, neither one is on your immediate to-do list.

MN how can you compare a baby to your lunch? Your #1 priority should be the child period.
