charges dropped on mom who almost killed her child

here's where her sleeping 2 y.o. daughter was in imminent peril:
Coyne, who was arrested in a loading zone near the entrance of a Wal-Mart store, contended 2-year-old Phoebe, who was sleeping, was safe inside the car after she locked it, activated the alarm system and turned on the emergency flashers.

She said she was never more than 30 feet from the vehicle, did not step inside the store and was gone for only minutes. And her attorney said because the car was always in sight, Coyne's daughter never was unattended.
i found this interesting:
"We stand by the actions of our officers that night and they were looking out for the best interests of the child," Crestwood Police Chief Timothy Sulikowski said
so from his point of view, cops should do this every time they see a sleeping child in a locked car with its parent in view.

"almost killed her child" :rofl:

Apparently I almost drank myself into a coma yesterday when I thought about going out for a beer.
