Va. Mother Charged With Abandoning Son, 4, on Beltway

I am so appalled by this story that I have no independent commentary. Read for yourself. . . .

Fairfax police charged a Newport News, Va., woman with child neglect and hit and run last night after they found her 4-year-old son wandering alone about 10 p.m. on the Capital Beltway near Lee Highway.

Police said the child had been put out of the car by his mother, Channoah Alece Green, 22, who was angry at him. . . .

Because Green allegedly bumped the child with her car, after she let him out, police charged her with hit and run, authorities said.
