Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said a customer alerted security at Bi-Lo, 3457 Peach Orchard Road, after seeing a 2-year-old girl sitting in a carseat in an unattended vehicle.

Security guards found Ashley Nicole Cruz, 25, inside the store 15 minutes later. Police are unsure how long the child had been left alone, Chew said.

Cruz has been charged with deprivation of a minor.

Now that he/she explained it...yes

I don't know why they think you insulted their intelligence though. I thought what you said clearly meant you judge people by the content of their character not the color of their skin. What do I know though? I didn't wear protective equipment as a kid and did hit my head....a lot....lol
