Journalism continues to sink to all-time lows. Can't find a decent article on the Internet that explains this case.

Apparently the father was doing web searches about how hot it had to be to kill a child in a car BEFORE the child's death. Apparently some speculation that this man didn't want to be a father and was looking for a way to kill his child while making it look unintentional. Other web articles suggest that he was "sexting" other women in the workplace and going to Internet forums discussing the virtues of being "child free."

Anyway, the articles online are a mess. If anybody can piece together a cohesive picture of what is going on here, many of us outside Georgia would appreciate it.

I listened for a while, but had to stop. He was “sexting” with several women, some of them underage, while he was at work as his son was roasting in the car. This and other things are making it look more and more like it was no accident. Poor kid.

Yes, that was shocking. The fact that it was the normal routine for the father to take him to daycare looks very bad. The report that the mother said: Ross must have left him in the car is too weird. I mean, I’m a real catastrophe monger myself, but I cannot imagine that would be my first thought.

“Apparently the father was doing web searches about how hot it had to be to kill a child in a car BEFORE the child’s death...”

Several other articles even mentioned that the child’s mother joined in those searches with this POS.

Yeah, well this piece is basically blogging during the hearing, you are right it’s not too coherent. Hopefully the guy will write it up a little more fully later.

I can’t believe the things that are revealed here. Who the hell is “sexting” while they are at work. Did you see the guy? He just looks like a schlub, he makes Anthony Weiner look like Clark Cable and Tiger Woods look like Sidney Poitier. What dopey dames are “sexting” with a schlub like this guy.

That poor baby, it’s like he never stood a chance with this creep as his father!

Interesting info at this link regarding the husband and wife and their attempts at conceiving. I saw this link posted in the Comment section at al.com last night before their moderator removed it. I think it is possibly relevant.

Try this: http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/03/justice/georgia-hot-car-toddler-death/index.html

It provides many of the details of the event. One fact the story leaves out is that surveillance cameras recorded Harris returning to his vehicle 2 hours after arriving at work.

Personally, I believe his wife was in on it, too. One inquiry that I am still waiting for is the testimony of the daycare center. There have been a number of bad incidents here in Atlanta over the years including a recent event where daycare workers left a child they were caring for in a van. So in order to protect themselves, daycare centers here will usually call the parents to find out why a child has not shown up as scheduled at their center. And if it turns out that they did call the wife or left a message with her and she was home to receive that message, then it shows a murder conspiracy between the two. Anyway, the article should give you everything you need.

If the father killed his little boy in that horrific way he should be executed, for sure.

But so far I’ve seen nothing factual regarding the schlub’s guilt.

Let’s have the execution AFTER the trial, please.

"But so far I’ve seen nothing factual regarding the schlub’s guilt."

Reports that he and/or his wife had been googling the length of time it takes for a child to die in a hot car- that's not enough for you? Or you just haven't been paying attention?

Is the smart-ass tone necessary ?

Yes, I’ve read that, and that doesn’t impress me a whole lot. It’s suspicious, certainly. But I’d sure like something more positive.

If you Google .357 magnums, and your wife is shot by someone carrying one, that doesn’t make you guilty. It makes you suspicious, certainly. I’m wanting something a little more certain.

Again, if he did it, and in such a horrible way, I want him executed.

“Justin Ross Harris told police that he forgot to drop his son off at daycare before going to work.”

They had breakfast at a restaurant together, then he loaded the kid back in the car and drove less than one mile to work. Is it possible to forget the kid was there in that space? Possible, perhaps, but most unlikely. Even if you were anxious to get in there and start your day of sexting underage girls.

And what about the reported googling of “how to survive in jail? And the reports of him returning to his car 2 hours later- the baby might have been still alive at that point. I really do think that my reply is justified.

Parents had 2 insurance policies on the child. Pure evil.

That is the main piece of evidence that would take my belief in his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt if I were on the jury. Not believable at all.

2:25 p.m.: Harris visited a sub-Reddit site: “Child-free. People who advocated living child-free.”

Also did a search on: “How to survive in prison.”When they told him he was charged with murder, Ross Harris looked at me and said, “But there was no malicious intent.” Ross argued cruelty to children charge: “It was an accident.” Viewed video [on a computer] twice about children dying in cars. Last one, June 13.

2:17 p.m.: Woman he was sexting with: She said, “Do you have a conscience.” What was his response?

“Nope.” Had interviewed with Chick-fil-A didn’t get [the job]. He was depressed. Had two insurance policies on Cooper. One, $2,000. Also had $25,000 policy on Cooper.

I watched a clip of what the mother said at her son’s funeral- she said she was happy that he wouldn’t be around to go through some bad times: like going to school and getting bullied, getting his heart broke by first girlfriend, etc.

I mean, what parent says this at their kid’s funeral?

I think they did it for insurance money- both of them..
