    There was no removal of the seatbelt in this situation. That child should have been in a car seat, and there was NONE. That child should NOT have been in the car with someone who should NOT have been driving to begin with. The mother should be charged too. Yes, she suffered a loss, but she is NOT a victim in this situation!

    I went to school with this guy. He was rude and would be mean to everybody that wasent in his "crew" Hes had multiple priors from what ive been told so he needs to get locked up and stay locked up for a change. He's just a habitual offender that wont learn.

    I've heard he was driving with no license, no tags and no insurance as well. Clown. I pray for the child's remaining family.

    To all parents and ESPECIALLY you young ones. YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO SAFE!!! CHECK AND RECHECK your children. I have a child that removes her belt constantly. Houdini. Do not ignore it.
