I need to contract this company to deal with the two entitlement cows who park in the fire line outside my building every day: Dallas Child Sleeps In Car As It Is Towed Away

"It was a split second, just like that," she recalled. . . . parked her car in a fire lane while she ran upstairs to her apartment. She left her 7-year-old son . . . asleep in the backseat of the car. When [she] came back downstairs, her car and her son were both gone.

I highly doubt it was "just a second"; the cows visiting my building take 5-10 minutes on an average day. It's a damn shame they arrested the tow truck driver for endangerment. That sends the message that the mother /wasn't/ endangering her child by leaving him in a car parked in a fire lane at night.

I have written the local news outlets expressing that she should not be treated different than other families investigated by children's services for leaving their children in the car.

This morning there was a breaking news story about a woman who left two small children in a car on the side of the road after she ran out of gas. In the "about 15 minutes" she was not with her car, the police arrived. She wasn't arrested, but children's services was asked to investigate.

I would love to read the police report (if any) taken for the lady whose car was towed with her kid still in it, but I know from experience it won't yield much. I've ordered police reports from two local police departments; identifying details of most of the situation(s) and all parties are blacked out.
