Negligence Can Be Murder Too.

       Justin Ross Harris is a deadbeat dad. For those that don't know the story we'll sum it up right here. According to an article released by CNN, Harris left his 22-month-old baby boy in his car in Georgia. The poor thing passed away in there while Harris was earning his paycheck. Apparently, he went to his car to put something in the on lunch, and still didn't remember his son in the vehicle. At the end of the day he pulls out of work with his baby in the car. Pulls over in a parking lot just up the street, and gets out of the car trying to resuscitate the baby boy. He was too late. The case is opened.
           The police began questioning and investigating. Eventually, the case pointed towards the father. Things went from negligence to homicide fairly quickly. They arrested Harris and seized his company computer. In his computer they found a Google search titled, " how long does it take for an animal to die in a hot car." Irony? Maybe. However, this gave detectives the idea that this really could have been premeditated. What's there to take from all of this?
           According to 40 children died in 2013, from heat strokes in vehicles. This is far from an epidemic, but I'm down for saving 40 children a year. How? Make an example out of this guy. Give him 10 or 15 years. This is not a joke these are children's lives. Premeditated homicide or not this guy needs to pay for his crime and so does every parent from here on out. I hate to say it, but it's situations like this that make legalizing abortion an idea to consider. This is just the opinion of one man.
