A five-month-old boy died in the scorching heat of a minivan after his mother forgot to drop him off at a daycare center….Mrs Gray was taken to a local hospital for treatment. A police spokeswoman described Mrs Gray and her husband as ‘extremely distraught’. She has not been charged but the investigation continues.
Now the other day the wife gave me some packages to be mailed. I had a bunch of other sundry errands to run, so I popped them in the back seat of the car and started getting my errands done. I was gone for over two hours and made about 5 different stops…and I forgot about the packages in the back seat and had to mail them the next day.
That’s just typical absent mindedness, of course if it was a young kid I’d either drop him off first, or bring him with me for my errands, and a baby and a package aren’t exactly the same thing!
The fact that no charges have been filed leads me to add the “Bad Justice” tag.
But maybe I’m overreacting, I mean nobody was shot, right? Only “Gun Deaths” count, right?
