What an idiot. Some people should not be allowed to have children. Thank you for publishing this woman's name. She deserves to have the world know what a bad parent she is.

I couldn't agree with you more, although I would have taken it a step further and posted her photo as well. Given all the media coverage regarding infant deaths due to this, how can anyone leave a five month old alone in a car, no matter what the weather. As a PICU RN who sees the results of idiots like this, it enrages me.
