  1. I would call this vehicle stolen with children inside, not carjacked with children inside. If I understand carjacked is a term for forcefully taking a car from the driver, usually at gunpoint.

  2. Dear bzuer, yes it is! Anyone who would do this is less intelligent than a “sechvi” so night or day doesn’t mattter. You never leave kids in the car period!

  3. Just curious; When you guys all do dropoffs by babysitters with three kids in the car. Do you take all there kids out by every babysitter in a development in 20 degrees or 100 degrees in the summer?
