I don't know what is wrong with these people. Look how many kids have died being left in the car. One was a CEO of a hospital. She can run a hospital but can't take care of her kid.

I've often wondered about this also...
I read about the latest one that died because everyone unloaded groceries and went inside, only to wonder where the kid was after an hour. Tragic.

I've also wondered.... We have glass breakage monitors, noise detector alarms, motion detectors, and the "help, I've fallen and I can't get up alarm"....
Why can't there be a monitor placed in a vehicle that listens for crying and motion when the ignition is turned off?
flashing lights, honking horn, smartphone app, call to the PD

It could even be trained for a particular baby's crying voice. Hell, they've had voice to text software for years!!!

Police officer's have motion detectors that send a signal if the officer is motionless for so many seconds!

there's even range monitors for parents for when their child wanders beyond it's parameters!

swimming pool monitors detect breaking the water's surface.

I know society shouldn't be in this situation where it needs to rely on devices.... but, the loss of just one child's life is worth it!

I organized an "All-Star T-ball Tournament" one weekend when I was Baseball league president for the county.... took 2 players from each team in the league and put 4 teams together. It was so humbling. It's purpose was to get a K9 for the County Sheriff's Dept.
We raised $4500 in one afternoon.

"Astra" is a Belgian Malinois, with multiple certifications.... the money we raised was about a third of her down payment

About 2 months ago I read an article where a small Arkansas PD was trying to raise money for a K9, I looked up their info, called them up and visited with their mayor. He loved the idea, and said he could make it happen also! I think they were going more toward a police officer's softball tournament with many teams from their county... and I told him if he need volunteers, to holler!

This is beyond words for me.

I remember one time some lady came up to me when I was working on my moms rental. She looked out her window and saw my Rottweiler sitting in my Excursion. She complained that my dog was in the truck with the windows rolled up and it was over 80* outside. I thanked her for her concern and informed her that the truck was running with both front and rear A/C was on full blast and probably about 65* inside the truck. She then complained that I was ruining the environment by leaving the truck running. At that point any courtesy that I had extended to her went out the window and I won't repeat what I said to her.
