The Happiest Place On Earth

Yesterday I saw a piece on the news that a couple in Orlando left their baby in a stroller while they rode the Pirates of The Carribean at Walt Disney World! What the hey? Turns out they were with a large group of family and the parents each thought the other had the baby. Nice.
The baby was unresponsive when workers/guests found her sitting in her stroller in the hot sun. She was administered to by EMS and she is fine. HELLO PEOPLE! Criminally negligent.
Should they go to jail? Not sure how I feel about that one. They should be punished, but I don't think jail is the answer. I wish judges had the power to be a little more creative with their punishment. Have them work under supervision with special needs children. Have them volunteer with the Special Olympics. Smack them upside their head. You know, creative! :)
