    WHAT A JERK….HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE….I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT KIND OF PERSON WOULD LEAVE THEIR CHILD IN A CAR IN BURBANK WHEN IT’S 90 DEGREES OUTSIDE….I DON’T CARE PEOPLE WHAT YOU NEED TO DO AND A TRIP TO COSTCO COULD HAVE KILLED YOUR CHILD…I HOPE THEY PUNISH HIM TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW AND THAT HE GETS LOCKED IN A CELL WITH NO AIR FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS

    IDIOT!!!! Who the hell doesn’t care enough about their kid to take them into the damn store…especially at 14 months!! WHAT!!!! Proper punishment should be castrating the guy so he can never breed again. GEEZ!

    Glad he was arrested. Such an idiot and should not be a parent if he’s that irresponsible. I hope he is punished for this!

    I am glad that this awful parent was arrested. I hope the judge throw the book at him.
    This father is not capable of caring for a child. I live in Los Angeles and normal people know to never leave a child ar a pet in car, while shopping.
    Too many children die, because of abusive and careless parents. It has to stop.
    Give him a long prison term, and make that public, so that bad parents get the message.
    This is a horrific way to die. This child was lucky to survive because of a good samaritan.
    Please don’t let another sweet child suffer and die horrifically because of careless parents who don’t deserve to be a parent..

      Or and brand new carton of cigarettes.

  8. Joe Divola says:

    Now they should leave him in a baking car for about an hour! Stupid jerk

  9. g-dub says:

    lucky child……..on another note, hey stupid people, we’re watching you and have no trouble stepping in when necessary!!!

  10. lisa says:

    alan hart…your kidding right?

    1. Chris says:

      NO! he isn’t kidding! If you knew the amount of stupid people who bring their pets with them and lock them in a parked car during the summer months, you would make the same statement! and most people when you confront them, turn their backs on you and ignore your warning……A cracked window or two is not going to help a dog who’s body temp is higher than humans, yet people dont learn! you dont hear about in the news….but it’s such a common occurrence. Whats really strange is how the owners cry after finding their pets dead in the back seat of their car! If they can do it to pets….they can do it to their kids!

    Father is an idiot, but his child is not safe with the department of children and family services. Give the kid back to the mom. A lot of sexual, emotional and physical abuse goes on in foster care homes. Most foster parents do not love the kids and do it for the money. No one could love a child more then their own family member. The department of children and family services is a mob and corrupt system. Do you research and you will see they cause more harm than good. Just pray your child never gets hurt in a simple accident, because they will come in and take your child away if they don’t believe you.

    Apparently, the last guy cares more for dogs then humans.

    1. Chris says:

      So Sam…you think it’s ok to lock dogs in the car the same way this idiot did to his kid? Have you any idea how many unreported pet deaths there are from stupid people bringing and locking their pets in the car….even during the summer!!!

      As I said…..you have NO IDEA how many of those go unreported but then again you must be ignorant!

  13. Gary C says:

    You should check on your history Turkish Pride!

    Probobaly a spade. Go figure.

  15. morena says:

    Child or animal it still a living, so many ignornant people out there who only care about there own comfort can’t even be bothered with their own child. And nationality does have nothing to do with straight out stupity! Stupity falls on anyone that would leave a child or a animal in the car , with blazing heat. If you don’t have time for either then don’t have them or don’t adopt them cause your not have no common sense or your extermely selfish!

    Does anyone know if he filled his prescription?

  17. Alan C Rhine says:

    I think they miss spelled his (Edik) correct spelling IDIOT!!!!

    As a foster parent with 25 years experience i can tell you that the majority of foster parents do in fact love the children placed in their care and if the birth parents loved and properly cared for their own children we wouldn’t be so busy caring for them.

    1. Michael J. McDermott says:

      Yeah, cigadetts!

  20. Tom says:

    STUPID ARMENIANS. HATE THEM!

    1. TamTam says:

      Trust me, the Armenian hate you tooooooooooo, Tom. Don’t judge one person by a whole race. Any one race or ethnicity could have done this.

  21. ES says:

    What could possibly be so important that you had to leave the infant in the car? He couldn’t take the kid with him?

    1. Michael J. McDermott says:

      If you’ve noticed, they drive the same way. STUPID!

  22. CW in L.A. says:

    Nationality has nothing to do with STUPID. People do not want to be bothered with their kid or their pets. But they want the kids and pets to obey them. I hope his gets even when he or she grows up. Karma is a B___H

  23. Pat Robertson says:

    For God’s sake at least leave him a dish of water next time…

  24. SUZY says:

    I can care less about that child in the car….I’M THANKFUL IT WASN’T AN ANIMAL EITHER!

    1. TamTam says:

      Are you stupid or somerhing? I am guessing you are not a parent and tuthfully, you have NO right being a parent. How can you say that????????? It is not right for a child OR an animal to be locked up in a car.

  25. John doe says:

    And it was probably for $1.50 hot dog and soda combo…. Stupid ass people in the world raising kids. Lock his ass up and turn the heater on…

  26. Velia McTague says:

    No reason, no situations, no emergency warrants leaving your baby alone first of all….but to dangerously leaving your baby to die a horrible death because you are stupidly selfish!!! YOU belong in PRISON for a long time….Absolutely no excuse or explanation will be heard I hope….May this baby be placed in a loving and caring home, away from this selfish stupid man.
