Sounds like a highly responsible parent who can spend nine hours at casino while her child is left in the car park! I bet the casino is airconditioned to keep the punters comfortable, no such luck for the child!

I live in a state with 20 or thirty casinos and people leave their kids in cars there all the time. We have had at least three deaths where children were left alone in the car in the summer time and one child strangled on a seat belt. Thankfully this child was not injured.

Absolutely NO REASON would be good enough for allowing this! What happened to RESPONSIBILITY? Guess that's gone as well as RESPECT. This is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR! A human life was at stake but it's more important that this woman gamble her life and her child's away. I wonder where she gets her gambling money??? Legally or ILLEGALLY??? She's trying to get out of any charges by saying: "SHE HAS MENTAL PROBLEMS!" and was seeking help to stop drinking and gambling. Has she gotten a doctor? That can be easily verified. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out she has mental problems, especially when she puts her gambling above the welfare of her child.The child should not be in her custody nor should any living body.

N/Thank you Terry. This sickens me as I've heard this over and over and over again on the news. I just don't understand, I just don't.

She needs to be put away and tell her to whine and tell her excuses to a wall in a hot confined space

Why did she have her kid at the casino in the first place? Get a babysitter.

WHAT WAS SHE THINKING OH YEAH SHE WASN'T. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND PUTTING THINGS OR WANTS BEFORE YOUR CHILDREN. GAMBLING AND ALCOHOL MAKES FOR A TERRIBLE OR DEADLY SITUATION ESPECIALLY IF SHE WAS PLANNING ON DRIVING HOME AFTER DRINKING. GOOD THING THEY TOOK HER CHILD. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW A PARENT CAN LEAVE A CHILD IN A CAR, AT HOME ALONE. I NEVER DID AND I GUESS I AM NIAVE. I NEVER THOUGHT SUSAN SMITH A MOTHER COULD WATCH HER CHILDREN DROWN ALL BECAUSE OF A MAN. SICK PEOPLE JUST PLAIN SICK

I just don't understand why people still do this with animals & children. No brains I guess.

What's surprising? The vast majority of the population is utterly moronic. Your government and their economist bosses would never get away with their exploitation, their wildcat military adventures and their lack of social responsibility were there an intelligent populace.

I know what I would think if someone did this to a dog, how much more disgusted am I that someone would do this to a child. Three days strapped in a hot car, that is what I would do to that parent. I am so tired of reading these sorts of stories. And people wonder why I think children should be planned and wanted. Look what happens to them when they don't fit into your screwed up life. Thank God this one lived!
