No writer would attempt to create a character in fiction this stupid.

A police officer not very far from here - in Stanwood, Washington - leaves two children alone in the car.

Also in the car is a loaded gun.

One child picks up the gun, accidentally fires and the other child is dead.

Now, of course, it doesn't help that America is a deeply engrained gun culture with as many as two firearms in play for every man, woman and child in the nation.

But  this level of irresponsibility is breathtaking.
