    Settlements Reached In Case Of 3 Who Died In Trunk - New Jersey 101.5 FM

    The kids were the in the parents' car in the parents' yard. Because the police did not look there - the city is liable? The parents did not look there either.

    Horrible, horrible tragedy but I don't get how the police or Toyota are responsible.

    Comments?

    Can someone explain - logically - how the hell the police are responsible for this? Does the phrase 'parental responsibility' mean nothing?

    God Almighty. How the hell these people want to profit from the death of their children is beyond me.

    Indeed. The parents are at fault.

    Why they didn't search their property and objects themselves before calling the police is beyond me.

    When I was a wee girl, one of our neighboring families, (a very disorganized one that my mother couldn't stand; we weren't allowed to play at their house), called the police because the youngest daughter was missing. The whole neighborhood turned out and spent a couple of hours searching. We ended the search when the mother informed us that the girl was asleep in her bed.

    Needless to say, the police were not amused.

    I agree, neither the police nor Toyota were to blame.
    The children were likely to blame.
    Yes a tragic event.

    Not all 3 kids were from the same family.

    I think toyota should sue the toyota owner for not following the User Manual for vehicle inspection and bad publicity and the City should sue the families for lost revenue from future taxpayers by letting their kids die.

    Sick sarcasm but it's no less asinine than parents getting paid 7 figures for their failure to know where their kids were.

    Too bad Michael Jackson died. He probably could have found them if the City announced it was legal to pick up boys who weren't with their parents.
    (okay.....tacky as fuck....but what do you expect when I have no idea how to respond to such a fuxxing mess?)

    This is like the babies dying from choking on the blinds, and now the companies have to change their design because 5 babies died. It is said they died, but who puts blinds by their babies beds? And why did they not notice? When my son was a baby, I knew enough to not have any choking hazards near him or his bed, and I also checked on him often.

    Come to think of it, my mom lost me a lot. In her defense, there was six of us, with four being boys. :lol:
    I am lucky to be alive.
