So it's a 3yr old. At what point is it ok to leave a kid in the car?

Anonymous said...

Jail time and/or a fine will have no effect on her. You can't fix stupid.

It's gettin hot in here said...

Lock her in a hot car rather than jail.

Anonymous said...

Why are some people arrested and charged and some people let go and their identity protected? I can't quite understand that.

@ 12:43 I imagine it may have something to do with people that resist arrest and have no respect for law enforcement.

11:47, it's NEVER ok to leave a child in a car alone...I won't even explain why; and if you have to ask, I pray that you don't have children...or a car, because you're too stupid to have either.

I like 12:30's idea, let this Dindu Nuffin sit in a hot car while I poop and look at plants.

@12:43; In addition to resisting arrest, she didn't simply forget the child was in the car and accidentally leave him there. She left the child in the car intentionally. Go park your car in a parking lot at a quarter till 8 today, crack a window 2 inches and let me know how long it takes you to determine whether it is a crime for someone to do that to you on purpose.

@11:47; most 3 year olds can't unbuckle themselves and, even if they can, often can't figure out how to get a locked door open to get out of the car if it gets too hot. Even if they could, most people would not want their 3 year old wandering around a parking lot and (still) risking exposure, abduction or being run/backed over by another car.

A woman leaves a kid in the car because she is too damn lazy to take care of the kid. Then she is dumb enough to tell the cops she was shopping for plants. I hope they were outside plans.

Not all of the people who are arrested and charged resisted arrest.
In this case the child lived. Just a while back there was a case where the child did not live. The identity of the woman who left the child in the car to die is still with held and was never charged.

@2:38 just saying what's the legal precedent for kids being allowed to sit in a car for 5 minutes alone.

Hot Up In Here said...

Is there a photo of the bystander who was able to get her arm through a 2 inch opening in the window?

It has always been my experience that cops can get car doors open, or if not, they have pop a lock on speed dial.

Throw the book at this dumbass woman. She did this on purpose, unlike the person who forgot her child was in the car (re the daycare). It matters not what you think about that scenario. That's the facts Mack.

Biscuits and gravy said...

Thank gawd Karen Carpender at the mall and able to put her arm through the two inch window crack

I can't remember going in many stores with my parents, obviously they didn't leave us locked in a car in the blazing sun, but probably would have left us in a car at 8:00pm with the windows down, especially if it was only for short period. Maybe ticket her, but arrest? That seems excessive.

I'm white and conservative, but the white lady not even getting her name published vs this lady getting arrested when no harm came to the child, hmmm.

@8 am the temp is in the low 80's. Hardly temps to give a kid heat stroke in minutes.

Resisting arrest? Probably talking back to the police telling them they were stupid for freaking out in low 80's temps.

Anonymous said...

Hey Einstein, it doesn't matter that the temp was in the low 80's OUTSIDE, temperatures inside cars increase at a greater rate and remain higher for longer - geez, how long have you lived here? And who give a rat's ass the manner of resisting arrest, you don't have to like the police, but you need to follow lawful orders and let the courts shirt it out. I sure hope you don't have children

“Children have died in cars with the temperature as low as 63 degrees. Basically the car becomes a greenhouse. At 70 degrees on a sunny day, after a half hour, the temperature inside a car is 104 degrees. After an hour, it can reach 113 degrees.”

Don't know how long the kid was in the car, but the 911 call came in at a quarter till 8. Still half an hour of sunlight left at that point.

Also, INTENT MATTERS in criminal law. If I'm cleaning my gun, thinking it's empty and it goes off, the bullet goes through the wall, through my neighbor's wall and hits him in the head, that is different than if I don't like the new color my neighbor has painted his house so I walk over and shoot him in the head. Same result: neighbor is shot in the head. Different intent: one is possibly criminal negligence, the other is murder.

White woman in Madison County - child died. No arrest

Black woman from Nawlins in Madison County - well, we all know the rest.

Play That Funky Race Card Til You Die said...

Racist Dumbass at 11:08. Pay attention here....The black woman from Nawlins was arrested for resisting officers attempt to deal with the situation and being combative. You start throwing your arms around, screeching and calling cops mother fucker, you're very likely going to have your fat ass hauled in. Now you do know the rest.

Hard to believe so many race baiting apologists frequent this board. I suppose some JJ readers tend to read the JFP from time to time.

When we have days with upper 90s and sunsets occurring after 8 PM, it is in the upper 80s at 7:45 PM.

There is no reason for a 3 year old to be left alone in a vehicle with no supervision. There is no reason to leave anyone in a vehicle with just a window cracked in the heat we are experiencing. If you respect law enforcement, they will give you respect.

No double if Lowes was across the street this wouldn't have been a story or an arrest. She may been able to pinch one off and buy a new plant before JPD would arrive at the scene.

Whitey parked, walked around the car to get her child out, and realized she accidentally hit the lock button with keys inside.

Blacked left the child inside on purpose, and then through a fit when the child was rescued.

To recap: negligent act vs. intentional act exacerbated by interfering/resisting cops.

But hey, Obama has trained you well: yell racism where it does or does not occur. (PS, that poor little Ferguson teen who got shot in the back with his arms up? Do a little research... you might be surprised)

In the video you can see at least 2 windows are about 4 inches down. I assume the other two are as well. Saying they were "cracked" is sensationalist. It was nearly 8pm. It's excessive in my opinion and, like others have asked. At what point is it ok?

Is there a legal requirement for me to have working AC in my vehicle while driving?

I am considered to be a racist by many. May be true but I like to think I treat everyone the same as they treat me.
Now, finished with that. There is no way a child who dies from being left in a car can be even compared to a child that lives. Don't thinks so? Would you rather your child gets to live or die?
This isn't the first case where people were arrested for leaving a child in a car. A while back was the first time I ever saw the law attempt to cover up a dead child and protect the person who left the child to die. No person in their right mind can say that arresting some people and covering up for another person committing the same thing can be right.

PittPanther said...

Better Call Saul would have these charges dropped in a hot minute.

First issue: what danger was the child in? Is there a law against leaving your 3yo in a car? No. Did anyone measure the temps inside the car to see if it was oppressively hot? No. Was the child showing any ill effects? No.
So please show me how the child was in danger, and what justifies the child endangerment charges.

This case goes nowhere, but that won't make the news.

'Whitey parked, walked around the car to get her child out, and realized she accidentally hit the lock button with keys inside."

Why did the white lady wait till she got off work to tend to the dead child, if she accidentally hit the lock button at 7:30 am?

Our laws are incredibly flawed. The maximum punishment possible for child neglect is only $1,000 and 1 year!!!??? Are you kidding? That baby could have died. That POS deserves at least a $10,000 fine and the judge should have option to sentence up to 10 years.

Anonymous said...

12:44, do you agree that the woman who left her kid to die in her car and had her identity protected by the cops should be treated the same, or was she special?

Anonymous said...

Amy Bryant skirted the law but why? Her child was 2 years old!! So for 2 years she had been in this routine it's not like it was a one off situation. Power gets you places, no names get jail. That's how the 'Sip works i guess. So sad.
She should be sitting behind bars right now for murder.

Before you call me a racist dumbass just know I'm white..

All child killers should be in jail period!

How could a person forget they have their child in their car?
After all we all have seen the commercials asking us to put something we really care for along side the child. Some suggest a cell phone or even a shoe.
Think about that for a minute.

Anonymous said...

The law should prohibit leaving any child alone in a vehicle under a certain age.

Amy Bryant has since had another child, a boy this time. Let's pray she remembers him in the car.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
