Mitchell should take her beating when she sleeps with other girls boyfriends and Bratt PD should'nt violate Mcallisters rights they were not there for marijuana smell and shouldnt be pepper spraying then tasering someone who has a right to be upset that his rights are getting trampled.

Selling drugs out of the Housing Authority Apartments paid for by the state. Throw the losers out & rent it to someone who is not going to abuse the "help" they are given!!! Another couple who should not have a child. Hopefully DCYF will step in and put this child into a safe family.

To BOO : Mcallisters rights were being trampled???? How about the 3 year old child that was getting exposed to drugs and pot smoke? Who is going to protect his rights if the police don't. How about his neighboros who have to live near him.

Also how was the mother of this child at least not charged with child endangerment if the police knew she was allow opot to be smoked around him. Never mind the fact that she was involved in the kidknapping. The is not the first time her name has been in the police log. I agree this is not someone who can be responsible for a child.

If Mitchell is the assault victim, then she seems to be the only one in this story that isn't a scumbag. You really need to reset your moral compass if you are calling the drug dealer the victim.

Sorry people but I was once there and it is nothing to be proud of. To you BOOO...you obviously are white trash just like the rest in this story. Mitchell didn't deserve this because no matter who sleeps with who, everyone in Bratt. sleeps together....that's why it's such a white trash town. Just look around next time you drive around Bratt and evaluate what really goes on in this town.....then maybe you can realize just how much those other girls deserve their punishment. Sickening you folks are!

I stay out of Brattleboro because it is scummy. AND I am not friends with any of the parties involved. Take away every child who has pot smoked around them, you will run out of Group Homes and people to adopt quicker than you know. This is a sick twisted world that another child will have to be in states custody going from loser to loser who abuses them or uses them for state income. What is worse a drug dealing father or Abuse and neglect? My point is a seperate issue has now affect a childs life, regardless of what his father did to put food in his belly.

well anonymous sounds like ya been smoking some of that weed or may be a little crack. birds of a feather flock together/ how true/

I know all of the parties involved. I know the type of family that Desiree was raised in & it's obvious that it was dysfunctional.. it's just who she grew up to be: aggressive, jealous, angry... No reason to kick a girl's a** over maybe sleeping with her boyfriend. And it's true, look around. Everyone is sleeping with everyone around that area. From high school into adulthood.. It's a small town, it's to be expected..
Laura & Joe are not bad parents. And that child is very loved! Maybe they have made some poor decisions, and they have drugs in their home. Just because someone is smoking marijuana, however, doesn't mean they do it in front of their child. Look at the population of Brattleboro. It's guaranteed that the majority of the town does or has done drugs. Go out on any given night, they would be easy to find. The town is so naive to think that it's just a few people--it's the whole town! How many people do you know that smoke weed? And maybe everyone should. It would calm you guys the f**k down..
Aside from all that..
Desiree should definitely be punished for what she's done. She is 22. It's time to grow up and know that you can't just "kidnap" someone and beat their face in. Especially over a BOY. Come on, seriously? Maybe she should knock some sense into that male instead of taking it out on someone who has nothing to do with THEIR relationship..
Laura sounds like she's grown into a little snitch to me. But she IS protecting herself and her child ..and that's important, so good for her..
as for the drug-dealing (or at least drug-handling) father..I have nothing to say. I mean, it's illegal, yes. It's wrong, yes. But you'd be surprised at what you think you need to do in the Brattlebronx to survive.. you can't count on working at Price Chopper forever..

I like the fact that some of Bratt's lowlifes express themselves in this forum, it gives me a chance to understand how they think, and how the world looks to them.

They apparently think jealousy over a boyfriend is a good enough reason to commit assault, which is a crime. They think drug possession is OK because at least they weren't dealing (maybe). They think it's OK to have babies and raise them among drugs, smoke, and crime.

Now that we've heard from these people, let's put them in jail or in rehab programs where they belong. And for Dog's sake take those children and put them in a different setting where they won't grow up thinking that crime is normal.

ok jway actually get ur facts stright ok i dnt smokek or do drugs better yet i dnt even drink ok... and u guys r right she had no right 2 beat the girl up over a guy that was wrong... but for the other 2 they r good parnets and they dnt bring the shit around there kid. so therefore u can stop sayin that they need there kid takin away and that he beein raisede around drugs and smoke cuz he not

Alright, he's not a dealer (but he has 2 grand in his pocket), wow, he must have a good job haha!!! The police went to their apt (provided by the state) to talk about the alleged crime. They smell pot, therefore they have every right in the world to look into the drugs. Then they see a small child, hmmmm can you say DCYF??!!! Two grand in his pocket & they only have to pay a portion of their rent & you tax payers who live & work in VT get to pay the rest. Dont you love it???? I assume they also get food stamps & again the taxpayers get to pay for that also.

to anonymous in Franklin ma, if the kid wasnt raised around drugs & smoke then what do they do, lock the kid up in a different room while they smoke, cause obviously if the cops could smell it then the kid could too. It only takes one time for the kid to find a tablet of E & think its candy.

Wiseone - What I find really sad about these comments is that it shows how low expectations are of parents and people in general.

You call Joe and Laura good parents because they love their son. It takes a lot more that love to be a good parent!!!

No matter how much you love your child, when you are getting arrested mutiple times, dealing and doing drugs, assisting in the KIDNAPPING and ASSAULT of another person, you are NOT a good parent. You are setting a horrible example of how to live and be responsible. Love is never going to make up for that.

I hope that after the deserved jail time these people serve that they wake up and see how they are living their lives and make a decision to change for themselves and their son. Their son needs them to do that. Or it won't be long before his name is in the police plotter.
haha bout time

Desiree will do fine in jail...she did fine in juvey eating out other girls! And her boyfriend has fucked so many girls behind her back, you would think she would have dumped his ass! I can think of 4 off the top of my head! She is always threating people and being a crazy *itch and deserves what she gets! Oh and why did Sarah get in her car? Wouldnt you have run away???? And I agree that Laura and Joes kid should be taking away---2Gs and not dealing but living off the state....yea ok. There kid is def exposed to drugs, if they could smell it out side it had to be bad
