If taking proper care of my children makes me good then I suppose I am. Accidents do happen however forgetting your baby in the back seat of a scorching hot car and the driving to that baby's daycare center looking for him only to find he's been lying lifeless in your back seat the entire time, that's pure negligence. Irrespective of his thoughts or intensions, if he did or did not mean to do it - it matters not because right now the most important issue - that which you can't seem to grasp is not whether he meant to do it or even if it was an accident. The issue is does a parent get a pass for this type of negligence. Your comment is useless, seems it bother you immensely that I take great pride in being a responsible parent and how much I value the life of a child. You said you don't have any children, that just may a good thing... View Comment
Dear Mark Markarian-
Your FOOLISHNESS isn't a matter of lack of intelligence or even lack of information, it's just your opinion, *TRUTH will always be truth, regardless of a lack of understanding, disbelief or just plain old ignorance.
Mark - what you can't seem to understand is very simple .... ready... here goes, YOU DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BABY IN YOUR CAR. That's it- plain and simple. You can pontificate all you want, at the end of the day a precious life should be given the utmost of consideration. Your facts are akin to a robotic survey. Not reality based nor are they rooted in humanity, you know when two people sign up to become parents they become a family. That family is now the number one priority. That means that whether or not you have your baby sitting in the front seat or the back that baby is priority 1. Not only did this mental midget of a father forget his baby in a scorching car, he then drove to the day care center looking for the child whilst this poor angel lay dead in the back seat. Nope - I dont buy your BS for a minute, and I am proud to be a mom to 3 beautiful children that are priority 1 to me, never did my babies have to wonder if i'd forget them in a hot car. Perhaps you should be left in a hot car - would you then be so quick to write it off as a simple mistake? View Comment
John Asmar you are too far gone to even have a discussion with, The Liberals are coming... The Liberals are coming...! This is a tragedy, a man forgot his baby in his car and all you can think of is blaming the liberals. If you were not so pathetic you would actually be funny. Actually you are funny - a real joke.

Mark, i too use my real name and would like to say that I am happy for you that you "lived in the front" of your fathers car. Kudos to your dad...? This is about a parents job, and if a parent can so easily forget the precious life they are transporting so much so that they need to constantly see the child right next to them then that person is either mentally incompetent, grossly vacuous or both. Your stats are just one opinion, and there are many by other "experts' that disagree. It's very simple Mark Markarian: You have a baby you now become # 2 in the equation - the baby becomes #1. The precious life isn't just tossed in any spot so that it is easier for you to remember where you left it - that's what you do with your car keys. View Comment
No - it's not just math, it's called being a parent. Taking the job seriously and not forgetting about your baby! I am so disgusted by your comment that I can't place my words here on this forum. I only pray that you do not have any children. View Comment
I am so shocked by the comments that are placing the responsibility on the government for the death of this baby while in his fathers care. It is truly sickening how some can dismiss the huge job being a parent actually is. This is NOT the fault of government policy, the back seat law or anything else other than a parent that thought so little of his own baby that he forgot all about him. I can't imagine in my wildest thought ever being able to do something like that. The fault lies in the neglectful father - and I am not sympathetic to him, my heart goes out to the poor little angel who sat back there wondering where his mommy or daddy was and why they never came to get him. At 15 months old he was incapable of crying out for help - he was in the trust 100% of his parent - and that parent failed miserably- period. View Comment
You blame liberal state policy for a parent forgetting their own baby and leaving that baby in a sweltering car locked in with no air to die a slow death? Really? it's the liberals fault?? This is why some people simply should not have children, and moreover why the liberals have thier faults but the other side is just bat poop crazy. Imagine blaming a neglectful, parent that forgets about his baby in a hot car on liberal policy - POOF- you just blew my mind... View Comment
Children DO NOT belong in front seats - wow... really? Ever heard of airbags??? I am seriously blown away but the stupidity of people. If you can't remember your own child in the car with you then for God sake get help NOW, because there is something dangerously wrong with you. View Comment
I am surprised at how blasse you are about this - "people make mistakes....?" Really, do you have kids?
Nope - sorry but this one is not just a "mistake". I'll say it again,.... you forget your cell phone, your car keys, your wallet, your watch .... NOT your child - not EVER.
Unacceptable under any circumstances - Period. View Comment
This horrific incident is NEGLECT -- and it is beyond sad. This woman is clearly from the contents of her blog in serious denial and the father, well he is just reprehensible. I'm sorry.... you forget your cell phone, your car keys, your wallet, your watch .... NOT your child - not EVER.
Unacceptable under any circumstances. Sickening.
I watched CH. 12 news yesterday and saw this smug lowlife walking w a woman holding his hand. I am amazed at how desperate some people are. He is beyond the beyonds disgusting and yet there is this woman walking with him in support. As a parent of three, I pray this case will lead to even more arrests than the ones reported. Glad that this is being taken so seriously and I hope they lock him up and throw away the key. View Comment
Why would someone cycle around the Tarrytown Lakes? So windy and narrow, and barely enough room for the cars and trucks. I get that cycler's love their sport but some common sense is VITAL here! View Comment
