2 Corinthians 5:10:King James Bible
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Romans 14:10:But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

Some people will jump on any cause! IMHO, it doesn’t matter if he did this intentionally or negligently.. It was neglect resulting in manslaughter if it was in fact an accident.. Parents don’t get to FORGET to protect their children, and if they do, they either lose their children or face criminal charges.. There is no “heartbroken” punishment in the legal system. It was this mans first and most important job to protect his child. A 22 month old child who could not protect himself! The dad failed, resulting in child’s death! Someone has to answer for that! And I’m sorry,, heartbroken and forgetfulness isn’t a good defense! Crazy!

I think that he should do hard time. There’s no excuse for this. If he had been drinking, people would be ready to pull the switch on this guy. In my opinion, sober or drunk, it don’t matter. It’s murder.

God’s holy light is what judges. Didn’t religions tell you? The wicked will become ashes.

I read an article once that suggests things such as placing reminders in the passenger seat. I put my son’s backpack on the passenger seat and it does help to remind me I have him with me.Although I am always the one to take him and therefore forgetting him would be nearly impossible, anything can happen. When my husband takes him I call the sitter and let her know and she will keep track of him. Either way I strongly feel that these men are suffering enough they will never be the same and this can happen to anyone! Not sure jail will serve a purpose on this. Too sad.

@Very sad, I saw a news report that suggested putting your purse or cell phone in the back with the child. Something you need to start your day should be in back with the baby.
Also call, if your husband/wife has to drop the baby off, when they normally don’t.
Call the sitter as soon as you think the baby should have been dropped off.
Then call your husband/wife asap! if the baby hasn’t arrived.
Jail I don’t think would work. they have gotten the worst punishment possible. Their child is dead.
They should be sentenced to travel the country a couple of times a year and speak at any place where parents are.
They should be telling their story to any and every body that has or are thinking of having children.
This is a teachable thing and should be treated as such.

Sad that you have to put your phone with your kid to remind you of your kid. So what it’s ultimately saying is that there’s no way your going to forget your phone so put it with your child who is easily forgotten. Wow!

I’m technology challenged, but there should be an app for that. My son knows where my Grandson is though his cell phone. I know this was a baby but there has to be something!! Maybe a bracelett with and alarm? I don’t know. This is so sad.

It sure would be nice if these daycares would start calling when a child is 20 minutes or more late. I know they are busy, though. Our in-home daycare would call us if our children didn’t show up on time, of course they were more like “friends”, than day care providers.

There is a reason Jesus never arrested anyone. He knows that doing such solves nothing.

I agree. He messed up. Badly!
The worst punishment for him has already happened.
His baby is dead!
Why put him in jail?
It was an accident and this guy will never be the same again.

Jail is cruel. Jail is harsh. Jail is mans attempt to take God’s place. Jail heaps pain and misery upon misery. Satan has an unseen jail that is not seen with human eyes recorded in scripture. What good have jails done?

@Susan, then they should sentence him to travel the country, on his own dime. Spreading the word.
How can the word get out if the parents of these children are in jail?
He should be sentenced to travel around the country educating parents at hospitals, schools, churches and anywhere else parents of children are.
If they don’t comply, then they should be put in jail.
It’s an accident and people need to be educated on how to prevent it.

You don’t know what hell is. Tell me if you have any knowledge? God is slack concerning his promises?

Why are some men so clueless?
The mom also should have called him or the daycare to make sure everything was okay.
Men can be one track minded.
If he didn’t usually drop the baby off, then that could have been the problem.
Someone should invent something to make sure parents check the back seat before exiting their car.
You would think it was an easy thing to remember your child is in the car with you.
I guess for some fathers it’s not!

I don’t appreciate your comment, “…the mom should have called him…” the “mom” has/had absolutely NOTHING to do with the father’s unfortunate forgetfulness…this is TOTALLY on the dad!

It appears that it is high time for authorities to take some action and begin charging parents for leaving their children in the car…I know that men are “wired” differently than women and they themselves should accept/acknowledge this fact and make sure they set an alarm, etc on their personal cell phone to “REMIND” them that something very important needs to be done…”oh yeah, I need to make sure my baby is ok” or use some other pre-planned reminder.

There have been far too many children that have perished in 2014 and prior years!

A message to ALL new parents whether it be mom or dad should be, “you will not only suffer & grieve the loss of your baby, but may also go to jail or have a criminal record because of it…I’m sorry to here of the loss of this innocent baby – “I forgot” is no longer acceptable.

Whats wrong with the mom checking up and making sure everything went okay, if it’s something he doesn’t normally do?
None of it was her fault, but had she checked in with him, maybe the baby wouldn’t have died.
Putting these people in jail won’t solve anything.
The worst possible punishment has been doled out. Their baby is dead. Whats worse then that?
They could sentence them to community service, educating other parents on the danger of not checking the back seat.
I saw a news report saying to put the diaper bag on the front seat or put something you need like a cell phone or briefcase or purse on the back seat. So you remember to go back there.
Whatever works because this needs to stop.

I’m not certain what purpose it serves to charge these parents with crimes. Yes, what happened is horrible, but if they didn’t do it intentionally, then aren’t they suffering enough as it is with the loss of their children? I think our justice system is completely up its own ass nowadays. Instead of punishing those who deserve to be punished and rehabilitating those who need to be rehabilitated, they dole out their own version of justice willy nilly. Seriously, think about it. Say they send these fathers to prison. What’s the point? Prison won’t teach them anything except to never let accidents happen, but accidents are just that… accidents. On top of that, their prospects for a successful future will be greatly diminished once they’re released from prison due to the felony charges. So, then, not only will these men have suffered the loss of their children, but they will have their lives and futures ripped away from them too. Brilliant.

With that said, this happens all the time. You’d think someone would’ve created something to prevent these tragedies from happening by now. Like… Something that’s either built into carseats or that you can attach to carseats that will sense the ambient temperature of the car and send an alert to your phone once it reaches a certain degree. Just a thought…

If you think that you dropped your child off at day care, then wouldn’t your first instinct be to stop and pick your child up from day care. Sorry for any misspelled words.
