A toddler’s tragic death in Georgia last week is now a social media phenomenon. Cobb County, Georgia father Justin Ross Harris faced a hearing today for murder after his 22-month-old son Cooper son died in Harris’s car.

Cooper died after being left in the car for more than seven hours while Harris was at work. Harris claims he simply forgot his child was in the back seat.

During the hearing, Cobb County police Detective Phil Stoddard said when Harris stopped in a shopping center on his way to a movie at 5 p.m., he pulled over and took Copper out of the car. Stoddard said Cooper was dead when his father pulled him from the backseat.

Stoddard said witnesses heard Harris tell someone by telephone that Cooper was dead. Harris told detectives he never reached anyone.

Autopsy results showed the boy, Cooper Harris, died of hyperthermia, and that the investigation “suggests the manner of death is homicide,” the Cobb County Police Department said.

Dozens of reporters were on scene tweeting from the hearing.

Progs of pallor alert! CNN ‘milks’ Megyn Kelly white Jesus, Santa kerfuffle

http://twitter.com/#!/HipHopSince1986/status/411660457968037888

Oh yes. Over and over.

As Twitchy reported, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly explained her Santa and Jesus “are white” comments. But CNN will not let it go. Obsessed much?

It is still being discussed on CNN.

http://twitter.com/#!/dhk175/status/412212089713741824

Bingo!

How long will it continue?

http://twitter.com/#!/GaltsGirl/status/412274465158885376

Heh.

A suggestion for CNN:

http://twitter.com/#!/moxiemom/status/412274687205310464

Boom. Another progressives of pallor alert!

Here’s another idea:

Perfect.

But, another controversy will surely arise:
