And his wife bailed him out! If that were my husband, I'd let him sit in jail to think long and hard about his priorities <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br><a href="http://www.wisn.com/news/15031754/detail.html" target="_blank">http://www.wisn.com/news/15031754/detail.html</a>

I agree, I can't imagine bailing a man out for something like that. However I can't imagine for a moment my dh doing something like that and I can't imagine being married to a man who would.

I would have let him rot in there. But I'm mean, I guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

#$^@ YEAH to this.... I think it's pretty evident that he knowingly left the boy in the car - it's not like he 'forgot' he was in there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I heard about the story very quickly and all I can think about is the terror if she DIDN'T bail him out. I hope she and the baby are both ok right now.

Oh I'd bail his @$$ out for the pleasure of kicking it within an inch of his life in the front yard in front of God and everyone. i don't care how that sounds, anyone who does that to my baby should expect an @$$ whooping from me (thats if their lucky). What a jerk and FWIW I beleive that poor Woman was probably being abused as well.

That's horrible! What bothers me the most about this is the wife bailing him out... I think he must be abusing her, because I don't know any woman in her right mind who would do that.

There was a video attached to the story, and his excuse was that he is a recovering acholic and his son was asleep in the van, so he went to have a few drinks and lost track of time. The news story says the baby went in to the hospital to be checked out for frostbite, but was fine and then released. The mother stated that god would want her to forgive her husband, because he is a good man, and dad.<br>
I would have been beyond mad if that was my baby, I would have let him rot in jail too!!!

Ahh, I didn't see the video. But forgiving him doesn't mean making sure he gets off easy, and possibly further endangering her child. Letting him stew in jail might have made him a little more aware of what he had done. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Consequences, and all that... nothing un-Biblical about it.<br><br>
If that were my dh, he wouldn't <i>want</i> to be bailed out. There would be no doubt in his mind that he would be better off in jail at that point, than home with me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Cuss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cuss">

Good god. I'm sure, though, that the woman bailed him out either because she was afraid he'd abuse her later if she didn't, or because she relies on his income to survive. I can't blame her.

The article states that the child was treated for exposure and frostbite and then released.<br>
He lied about where he was going. I would have let him rot.

I would have left him in jail also. He needs a serious reality check. There is no booze in jail.

I have gotten into these types of discussions more times that I can count lately.<br><br>
FOrgiveness does NOT mean going back to being abused or treated wrongly. It means being able to let go of the anger in your heart while moving forward, and if need be to create an empty space where the anger or bad thing used to be so that good and G-d things can fill it.

Lord, ain't that the truth!<br><br>
Poor baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Besides being freaking freezing cold, can you imagine how terrified such a young child would be? Old enough to know he's alone but not old enough to have any clue whether or not anyone's coming back? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Disgusting.
