    You mean state troopers were not able to catch up with the pickup on the turnpike? They were that slow to respond to a call like this. AND no one was smart enough to follow the pickup on the turnpike until troopers arrived? What ignorance. Just as ignorant as the couple. It's no wonder we are quick to give the hero status to a man who heard a woman screaming inside a locked home in Cleveland and not only called 911 but also bust open the door because it seems like others may have just called 911 and walked away. Now I understand.


      according to the article the incident ended outside of the troopers jurisdiction. there were only two people at fault here. you cant fix stupid

    If the child wasn't in the cage, but just sitting in the back of the truck, would the parents still be charged?
