I don’t normally condone calling people out on here; but this is in the news and I find it disgusting, so I think it’s worthy of a topic.

This woman obviously needs some help. Her addiction caused her to commit vehicular homicide on her own child and then less than a year later she’s arrested for this. What does it take to learn? How is she out of jail anyway?

I saw that they should have left her there - even that wouldn't be punishment enough for what she did. And I agree - how is it that she is not in jail......

Obviously they need to incarcerate her for a long, long time in a facility equipped with a rehab center.

She is probably out on bail, and hasn't had sentencing yet. They said she could get up to 9 years.

Rehab won't help if she does not admit she needs it. Look at LL

This reminds me of the gal on Facebook in Colorado who let her 13 month old baby boy drown in the bathtub because she was busy playing games on Facebook. True story. He died in September and she was just arrested for it last week. At least she's been keeping her Cafe and crops taken care of since the baby died. >:|

I don't see how anyone could ever take part in an activity that had anything to do with the death of their own child. Whether it be drinking alcohol or playing stupid games on Facebook...how dare they!

I don’t buy the “alcohol is a disease” BS. You make the decision to put it in your body. You make a decision on how much to put in your body. And you make a decision whether or not to stop. My entire maternal side of my family is alcoholics. I’ve seen it firsthand, and I’ve seen some of them overcome it firsthand….by choice. To me, calling it a disease is an easy way out for people who don’t want to quit. Not being hasty Curious…just stating my opinion, because I’m sure she’ll play that card to get a lighter sentence, if she indeed is awaiting her sentence. This arrest may actually help, she may get a little more time but in a facility with rehab facilities in lieu of prison. Judges can be harsh, but are all usually compassionate toward those with serious issues.

Agree 100% that alcoholism is not a disease. Good post!

Alcholism is a mental obseesion. So if mental illness is not a disease, then I guess one could say that alcholism is not a disease. But by most definitions, mental illness is a disease...

The Social Security Adminstration considers it a disease, along with any other addiction. Addicts receive SSI, to continue their addiction.

So...? the devil made them do it and they are not to blame. If a person desires to get good grades, excell in athletics, suceed in business etc. is this also a mental illness. Obsessions are a human trait but not an illness in my opinion
