WATCH: Cop lectures Vancouver woman about leaving her kids locked in a hot car
This video is going viral of a police officer in Vancouver lecturing a mother who left her kids in her car, windows rolled up, on a hot sunny day while she was grocery shopping. The kids are 3 and 6 years old.
Child protection officials are apparently investigating the mom. There were MULTIPLE 9-1-1 calls about the same kids in the same vehicle that day.
Some people are disagreeing with how the officer treated the woman but on Friday, Vancouver police Chief Adam Palmer said “I know that he has children of his own and you have to remember that police officers are just people” and that the “highly respected” officer in the video was trying to portray the “gravity of the situation.”
Personally, I think the officer did a great job!
