Full story: The Indianapolis Star

A 19-month-old boy remained in critical but stable condition Monday, a day after he drank juice from a bottle laced with a hallucinogenic drug that police say his mother's boyfriend tried to hide.

IF YOU ASK ME SHE IS AN UNFIT MOTHER, AND THE REASON I SAY THAT IS BECAUSE SHE SHOULD OF HAD COMMON SENSE NOT TO GIVE HER SON THAT JUICE THAT WAS SITTING IN THE CAR OVERNIGHT. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE WASHED THAT CUP OUT AND GAVE HIM SOME FRESH JUICE. AND I KNOW THAT THEY SMELLED THAT STRONG STUFF AND IT SAT OVER NIGHT IN A CLOSED CONTAINER. SHE IS JUST UNFIT WHEN EVER YOU GET THROUGH WITH IT.

YES HE SHOULD INDEED GET IN TROUBLE BUT THAT STILL DOES NOT EXCUSE THE MOTHER FROM BEING IRRESPONSIBLE

THE GIRL IS STRAIGHT STUPID....SHE DOES NOT NEED ANY KIDS THIS IS INSANE THE STORY IS NOT ADDING UP AT ALL. I MEAN HOW DO YOU NOT SEE SOMEONE DOING SOMETHING LIKE THAT WHEN YOUR IN THE CAR WITH THEM UNLESS HE WAS SITTING IN THE BACK SEAT. SHE NEEDS HER KIDS TAKEN AWAY AND PUT SOMEWHERE THEY DESERVE TO BE PLACED AT. SHE IS ALWAYS IN THE CLUB WITH HER MAMA NOW TELL ME WHAT TYPE OF MOTHER SHE IS OUT PARTYING WITH HER MAMA AND CAN'T SUPPLY FOR HER KIDS.....LOCK HER UP THROW AWAY THE KEY.

why do these parents have no regard to their childrens safety when it comes to the peolpe they are involved with.before my husband was able to get his cdl license he had a questionaire to answer and then be finger printed.these parents can have children like you can get a glass of water without caring the circumstances they put these children in.we have a very selfish nationthese parents need parenting classes before birth after birth and and report to someone once aweek for as long as that child lives in that house.we need these chidren to come first in our lives.we need more love and concern for these children then what we have.I think both parties should be held responsable for their carelessness.they should know the danger their children are in.

This is a very said situation. it is terrible that children are suffering because of the stupidity of these two individuals. I blame both the boyfriend and the mother. Why do you have a controlled substance? And why are you giving you child a cup filled with juice from the day before?

Now that i sit back and continue to ponder this disasterous situation. I must ask myself why if you put PCP in the child cup would you not tell your girlfriend....the news stated he told her when she called him from the hospital. So is he a user or a seller. I totally agree that parents have to start paying a more attention to who they have their children around. As a young single mother it is up to me to ensure my childs safety i can not allow people that sell or use drugs to be in my child presence he does not need the influence, why even exspose a child to that side of the world they have enough mess to deal with just growing into produvtive citizens. Not to mention he is an African American male do they have enough to deal with..

I feel that the mother is souly resposible for what happened to her baby. True enough Mann put the pcp in the bottle to hide it from the police, but that's part of the game. If Vaughn was in the car when he did it, why didn't she wash the bottle thoroughly before giving her baby juice. Yeah, Mann should be charged for the controlled substance because he was caught and that is part of the game as well, but Vaughn should be questioned in concerns of what her intentions were giving her baby a bottle that hed been in the car over night with pcp in it.

I've never smoked pcp but I know it when i smell it. It's a smell that you can't ignore. She knew when Mann opened the bottle and poored it in the cup,due to the smell.

THis is not a game this is a baby's life and brain. These people are brain dead and need to be sterilized and not allowed to have children or be in the presence of children it is the most outrageous thing i have ever heard in my life. This baby will not stand a chance if given back to the mother. The precious little boy needs to be placed up for adoption if he pulls through. Please pray for him.

what i meant by the statement is that he is an Black man and they have enough to deal with and all of the negative publicity does not help their image.

You know what helps images? Stop breaking the law. Look a any city that is mostly black, even partly, the crime rate is high. But its whiteys fault. I wish I had a excuse for every bad decision I made.

i just watched the show about this and it brought me to tears...i dont understand why anyone would feel like this is ok. A baby cant defend him/her self and let alone depending on the age cant voice that it taste nasty or anything.. i would never associate my self with anyone that might think like this let alone that does it. they say she was in the car..if thats the case then the mother should have known even if he was in the back seat..i dont have any children but i know that when i was younger my mom always had her rivrew mirror pointed at the back seat so she could see what we were doing..to me they should both be charged unless there is a way to prove that she really didnt know and even then she should still get charged for endangering her children..
