JUST A QUICK PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: THERE IS NO LAW AGAINST LEAVING CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN A CAR. NO MATTER WHAT YOUR PERSONAL OPINION ON THE MATTER IS, IT IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW. IF YOU SEE CHILDREN IN A CAR AND THEY ARE SMILING LAUGHING TALKING PLAYING, AND NOT IN DISTRESS, IT IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW SO DO NOT CALL THE POLICE.
IF YOU See an unattended child in a car on a HOT (OR FREEZING) DAY? Here’s what you do:
Call 911

Check for signs of overheating

Fast, noisy breathing

Disorientation

Collapse

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

Vomiting

Lack of responsiveness

Check vehicle doors

If unlocked, remove child

If locked,try to locate parent, break glass and remove child

If owner returns, advise them that the police are on their way. Do not confront the individual.

SO IF YOU SEE A CHILD LEFT IN CAR AND YOU SEE THEM IN DISTRESS (CALL THE POLICE), OR IF YOU ARE UNSURE (LETS SAY THE CHILD IS SLEEPING) WAIT A FEW MINUTES AND IF YOU ARE SILL WORRIED, AGAIN I URGE YOU TO CALL THE POLICE.

IF YOU WITNESS AN INDIVIDUAL LEAVE THEIR VEHICLE AND YOU NOTICE KIDS IN THE CAR, DO NOT CAL THE POLICE AND FALSIFY INFORMATION TO MAKE YOURSELF FELL LIKE THE GOOD (ANONYMOUS) SAMARITAN REPORTING A CRIME, IN ORDER TO MAKE YOUR STORY LOOK MORE CREDIBLE. IN THIS DAY AND AGE THERE ARE TIME STAMPS ON CAMERAS AND ON RECEIPTS ETC. AGAIN NO NEED TO EMBELLISH THE STORY TO MAKE YOURSELF MORE BELIEVABLE, BECAUSE UNLESS THE CHILDREN ARE IN DISTRESS, IT IS NOT A CRIMINAL ACT SO YOU ARE NOT BEING A HERO!!!

SO TO THE LADY AT IKEA WHO CALLED THE COPS WHEN I WAS DONE SHOPPING WITH MY KIDS AND PUT THEM IN THE CAR AND RAN BACK INSIDE TO USE THE WASHROOM. THE ONE WHO CLAIMED SHE WAS THERE WATCHING MY KIDS IN THE CAR FOR 15 MINUTES. THE CAMERA FOOTAGE SHOWS ME GOING BACK IN FOR LESS THAN 5 MINUTES. AND SO I CAN TELL THAT MY KIDS BEING IN THE CAR FOR LESS THAN 5 MINUTES UNATTENDED IN +12 c WEATHER DID NOT NEED YOUR SAVING.
I’M HOPING THAT ON LOOKERS BECOME MORE EDUCATED AND STOP WASTING THE POLICES’ TIME AND STRESSING OUT PARENTS.
AND PARENTS BE AWARE THAT SUCH INDIVIDUALS EXIST. NEXT TIME YOU RUN INTO THE STORE TO USE THE FACILITIES OR GRAB ONE ITEM FROM THE STORE, YOU MIGHT BE GETTING A VISIT FROM THE COPS AND PROTECTIVE SERVICES, DUE TO SOMEONE EMBELLISHING THEIR STORY AND MAKING IT NECESSARY FOR SUCH AN INCIDENT TO BE LOOKED INTO.
