Which makes me think that we don't have all the facts to this story
Laws usually do not get written to cover particular instances but rather general conditions. I think we can all agree the general conditions in Phoenix are such that it's good to have laws against leaving little kids in locked cars. Cops were just doing what cops do, i.e. apply the law as written.
Colbert: he and his Twitter account were doing their usual thing of looking like stupid, racist conservatives to mock people they feel need mocking thusly. Stupid chic of Korean ancestry took offense at the satire and called white liberals racists (not gonna like, she's right). Stupid chic was interviewed and it became highly apparent she's stupid. Stupid chic says she was just trolling everyone, because you see, she's a "writer." By "writer" she means she has a blog and twitter account and no gainful employment.
