Shanesha Taylor is a homeless, single mother of 2 children, who was arrested for child abuse this week. Taylor left her children, ages 6 months and 2 years old, in her Dodge Durango while she attended a job interview in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A passerby found the children in the car, with the engine turned off and the windows cracked open. Once Taylor returned to the car, 45 minutes later, she informed the police officer that she did not have a babysitter for her children.

“She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it’s just a sad situation,” said Scottsdale Police Sergeant Mark Clark.

She was arrested and booked into jail for child abuse.

Her children are now in CPS custody.

    I can’t believe how a person that had so many options can get such sympathy
    If she was homeless there are shelters where she could have left the children for a couple of hours. There is also the RED CROSS,SALVATION ARMY, churches and many other places
    She would have been better off leaving them with a stranger than what she did
    She endangers her children and we award her
    She played the sympathy card and the nation crawled into it
    She deserves jail and her kids taken away

    Sarah,
    If my mom and dad had walked by and seen you as a child under the age of 15 waiting in a hot car they would have called the laws .
    I can remember my Dad reading the riot act more than once over some parent leaving their kid in a car
    If my parents just stopped and purchased gas or a loaf of bread we were taken out of the car and went with them
    If we went to see someone about anything we did not wait in the car we were taken along
    Even in the 50′s and 60′s our parents never thought it was ok to leave a child
    even for two minutes
    I can still remember Dad saying to some parent let me lock you up in there for a while and see how you like it

    It was not her only choice there are churches, red cross ,salvation army neighbors homeless shelters and even fire and police stations
    She had other choices
    She did not care

  • Doc

    She is playing the sympathy card and you are taking the bait

  • Doc

    Yes, it is a great injustice when parent endangers their children and get away with it and paid for endangering them
    She had options she just decide to not use them
