Child left in car in Batavia Downs' parking lot

Law enforcement is responding to the parking lot of Batavia Downs to meet up with security officers who report that a child has been left alone in a vehicle.

UPDATE 5:32 p.m.: "I'll be clear (leaving the scene). No report. The child has been reunited with the stepmother," says an officer.

Where are all of the comments expressing extreme outrage? Oh wait, it's not a dog left in the car. Never mind.

We have no idea what age the "child" was or how they got there. None of us knows how the person came to be in that vehicle. You're all assuming that the step mom drove to to BD's and left the kid in the vehicle to go play the machines. Have some faith in the police and their investigative abilities. Don't you think that if something was afoul, the outcome would've been different than it was?

edit: Oops, this was written after reading all of the facebook posts, but I wanted it to be seen where more people would see it so I wrote it here!

Laughing out loud
