    SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. — An Arizona couple have been accused of leaving their 2-year-old son alone for up to 90 minutes to go play the "Pokemon Go" smartphone game, in a case that a local sheriff called "beyond comprehension."

    Brent Daley, 27, and Brianna Daley, 25, were arrested after a neighbor found the boy crying outside the couple's home in a southeastern Phoenix suburb Thursday night, the Pinal County sheriff's office said Monday.

    Maybe they should add peoples kids as Pokemon so they could find them? Common sense left the room a long time ago. Somewhere along the way parents became more about their wants and hobbies  rather than caring for their kids (someone will do that for them... maybe the schools?).

    What are the rest of the facts in this story?  Where, exactly, were the parents?  The back yard?  The garage?  Or miles away?

    If it was miles or even blocks away, this is one of the definitions of child abuse.

    The game, itself, is irrelevant to the issue.   No more so than the "devil Rock and Roll music"  was to the last generation.

        Well, at least there is a happy ending.  The child was taken from these fools and given to Child Protective Services.  Now, if a court has the courage to make it permanent, the child may get an opportunity to grow up with a loving and caring family.

        In any event,  not the game's fault.
