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.

Someone definitely needs to get that woman on endangerment, stat. She's lucky an actual thief didn't take her car AND her kid.

It's also pretty irresponsible of the tow-truck driver, but he came RIGHT BACK. I mean, given he made a mistake, he really couldn't have handled it better. He didn't endanger the kid at all, no more than any parents does when driving their kid around in a car, yes?

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

I am impressed that the truck driver turned around and took the car back. As another commenter said, if I was a tow truck driver I would have taken the car to the nearest police department.
