I remember when I was in my mid twenties and my Mom gave me her video tape of Midnight Express. Why? To drive home the point that you don’t smuggle drugs out of southeast Asian. You will go to prison. You will not pass go. You will not collect $200. You will not be within 50ft of a woman for many years! Point taken. Thanks Mom.
Shouldn’t it be the same when folks from other countries settle in The Americas, Canada or the U.S.? apparently not for a family from Saudi Arabia now in Corpus Christi, Texas. Apparently leaving an infant in the car alone while you go watch a movie at the theatre is OK.
I’m calling bulls%#t on this one simply because of their country of origin. The family’s excuse was that it’s OK in Saudi Arabia to leave a child in a car unattended for long periods of time. Yeah right. The day time high in Riyadh hits 110 degrees and a child would cook in two minutes in that heat. How is that normal?
Answer: It’s not. This family got a free pass when they should have been punished for very poor judgement. I’m a tolerant person when it comes to immigrants learning the laws of the new land they come to but this was a common sense issue that this family totally lacked in. Let’s hope this family has learned that this particular cultural practice is unacceptable here. ~Bill
