Dr. Sanjay Gupta breaks down the hot car video allegedly watched by Justin Harris

Five days before his son Cooper died in the back of a hot SUV, Justin Harris watched a YouTube video demonstrating the dangers of leaving pets inside hot cars. That's according to a detective who testified at Harris' probable cause hearing. Anderson takes a look at a clip of that video and discusses it with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

    There are many ways to respond to tragedy! I have been there. My son died tragically. This man does not show any broken heart, any suggestion that this little guy meant the world to him. The wife knows the truth, by my virtual study. She has not shed a tear, except when it concerns her husband. I wouldn't be able to look at the man, let alone sit and comfort him. Common sense and much gathered evidence of what this man/woman did before the death of this baby (including having two life insurance policies on him), shows nothing but guilty behavior. If found guilty in a court of law, and the wife is brought to charges, I suggest neither of these people ever are able to reproduce again.

    These freakshows are getting exactly what they deserve. The world is filled with parents with an absolutely unshakable sense that a child is property, and therefore any actions toward their property cannot be wrong, no matter how it affects the child–which often will simply not even be part of the thought process. Many of us have survived parents like that with the sense that it may not be possible to act against our parents successfully until its no longer a reasonable course of action, but we always hope that someday we'll get to enjoy watching someone just like them be given very painful justice.

    I'd like to know where all the anti-abortion crusaders are with their yelling and signs with pictures of dead babies. They pretend to be motivated to defend child safety, but as soon as its out of the uterus–they're nowhere to be found until their old enough to send to war.
