    Georgia toddler's death -- first blamed on heat -- is ongoing probe, police say

    (CNN)
    -- It was a tragedy from the outset: a toddler found dead apparently after being left alone for hours in a hot car, a distraught father blaming himself and facing serious criminal charges.

    Now, Cobb County, Georgia, police imply there is more -- much more -- to the story.

    "Much has changed about the circumstances leading up to the death of this 22-month-old since it was first reported," Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce told CNN. He would not elaborate, citing an ongoing investigation, but his words made it clear this was not just another case of a young life left and lost to heat exposure in a hot car.

    "I've been in law enforcement for 34 years. What I know about this case shocks my conscience as a police officer, a father and a grandfather," said Pierce.

    Good Morning Everyone. Seems you all had a busy night, early morning.

    Please read the following:

    "POWER POSTING" where one responds over and over to every post with little time in between and always to drive a single point home is a violation of etiquette, as is stating unknowns as knowns, or stating them as fact. If you state a fact, you need a link. Power Posting is very disruptive on the thread and it's not allowed.

    If it is determined that a member is power posting in a thread, they will be asked to leave the thread. If the member chooses not to leave the thread, TOs will be issued.

    "GANGING UP ON OTHER MEMBERS" is not allowed. If you disagree with something, but your only comment is to tell another they are wrong, then don't post it. Just scroll. Everyone gets their own opinion. If you must respond, then post the link that refutes their statement and MOVE ON. Members that participate in ganging up will be issued TOs. This is bullying guys, and it's not tolerated here.

    Please read your post before hitting reply. If your post is personal to someone else, don't post it.

    Salem

    Mom is considered a victim here unless you have a link from LE/MSM saying otherwise. She can be discussed in the context of what she has said in the media and in the warrants.

    Please post accordingly.

    With tomorrow's hearing, what exactly will we learn? Will they release the evidence they have that support the charges? Will all our lingering questions be answered or do we have to wait for his trial for that?

    To support the current charges LE will have to show that:

    a. a child suffered excessive physical or mental pain due to the criminal negligence of someone (a felony), and
    b. that the child died during the commission of said felony (felony murder.)

    IMO, the only question is whether or not he committed criminal negligence, which by the below definition I would say yes, he did:

    http://research.lawyers.com/glossary/criminal-negligence.html

    So it comes down whether you believe a reasonable person could forget his own child in a hot car for 7 hours after interacting with that child <5 minutes before doing so and then completely failed to see that child when returning to the vehicle during the day. By my standards of reasonable behavior, that isn't possible, or at least is so dangerous to the health and welfare of others that it isn't reasonable.

    And that's literally the gist of what we've been arguing about for the past week. Some of us think there might have been actual intent, but again, intent doesn't have to be shown for the current charges to be levied.
