It is preventable... When stupid people see other stupid people go to jail then the responsible people in society will make sure that the stupid ones are never allowed too be in the care of our young, elderly and pets. Additionally, take their License and Registration Away just like a DWI.
If they cannot be responsible with Human Life, then simply make sure they can never do it again. Stupid People Do Not Get a Pass because they are Stupid and a Parent does not get a pass for being responsible for killing their child because its their child. Lock this Father UP and let him rot in jail. Better yet strap him in the back seat of the same car on a hot sunny day and oops sorry forgot he was there 3 hours later. 45 young children + already this year have died this horrible death.

As for all Parents and Drivers in general:
Never Leave ANYONE unattended in a Car for any reason. NOT a Second or a MINUTE even if the Air Conditioner is on.
No Child, Elderly Adult or Pet should Die because of your carelessness, engine failure or air conditioner malfunction. Everything in life can wait except your responsibility to the care of the ones in your charge.
May this Madness End TODAY! Because it is completely Preventable and should NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN! View Comment
If Ms Murphy is calling the easement Town Property I would like to see that on the Town Tax Map and see the Town maintaining it and clearing the entrance to my driveway when it snows. An Easement is for access however it does not convey ownership. As a resident and tax payer I do not want to see another dime spent on our part time police dept collect lawn signs off of residents front lawns. Additionally, I call for the disbandment of the Somers part time police dept and have either the State Police do it full time or the Westchester County Police View Comment
If we are now paying our part time Police Officers to go out and remove signage from private property ( the town does not own the easement area) then it's time to finally get rid of this Police Dept.. Presently we pay for Westchester County Police Officers to protect our children at school each day and we have NYS Troopers responding to and answering 911 calls; why do we need a part time police force made up of retired police officers many well past 60+ and most that can barely fit in their Patrol Cars (too many donuts at the 7-11 on Rt 100 each day ) where they park in the handicap parking every morning they are on duty. The time has come for the disbandment of this part time dept and have the NYS Police or The Westchester County Police take over Full Time. Additionally, the Town needs to understand what an easement is and that it is not Town Property so they are stealing Town Residents Property from the Private Property Owners land . So Residents that have had their property stolen file a Police Report with the NYS Police on Rt 100 at the Trooper Barracks and have the State Police Investigate and arrest the Town Police Officers and Police Chief and put The Town Board of Somers on notice (Notice of Claim) for their stolen property and illegal actions
