What's even more sad is when you pull her up on will county circuit court (thanks ex!), she isRead More actually in a custody battle with baby daddy... Do what's right and do not throw away your son or daughters life! Makes me sick to think that a child could have been in that car with her screaming for mommy to wake up.... What's with this generation of trash ass mothers??? Disgusting!!! This chick is all to worried about what people are saying about her per her last arrest and her own comment, yet clearly can not accept that the way she is living is wrong!! I'm not one to always color inside the lines, but the line is drawn when you are causing harm to others!!!!

so weather you make an aerosol can illegal or toothpicks..if there is something people want that isRead More illegal.There will be a black market. Just because it is Illegal does not mean that the law is correct. It means we are ignorant to ban a natural plant then cause more violence towards the people and the world to stop natural people from having something natural.Thanks to Dupont and Big Pharma...as we are finding out today natural drugs have benefits. Magic Mushrooms are now being used in END OF LIFE TREATMENT, Heroin addiction which has made people quit heroin with no addictive side effects to shrooms.

No one is celebrating this young mans death. Reality is reality, why hide what he was? I'm sure hisRead More family new what he was into, if they didn't then maybe this will pull them into reality.

We must identify the problem before it can be fixed. Unfortunately it dies have to do with race. ButRead More rather than own up to the issue of gangs and violence in the black and Hispanic communities they scream everyone is racist. There is a huge herion problem in the white community guess what folks are owning it. There are many meetings now educating the families . it's not 100% fixing it but it's a start. So if you don't want your child/brother/cousin in a gang do something about.

A journalists goal is not to report but to sensationalize. What will get people riled up will earnRead More attention and money. The term is known as 'yellow journalism.'
