Funny how you post as anonymous! What a friend you are, to sit on here and write crap about her...hope you sleep good tonight!<quoted text>
I knew Leah too, she was crazy and refused to get help,cries out for help then doesn't take it. I even visited her when she was committed. Instead of taking her psychotropic meds, she got drunk and high.

A mixed bag. In the end people are not going to change
unless they truly want to. The ones who go into treatment
voluntarily usually do pretty well at first because the
desire is there vs. being ordered to go and just doing
what you think they want you to do until they turn their
backs. On the other hand you get younger people who are
scared of prison and will complete ordered treatment fairly
successfully out of fear. But either way, it all boils
down to follow up; if you have a case worker or parole
officer who cares and follows up regularly the success
rate is much higher. And the older one gets and the more
often the system lets them fall through the cracks (which
are the ones I work with now) the lower the success rate
is and the less they care.
I think most people would be amazed at how many there are
out there that can't control their behavior. And when
we recognize that we need to intervene immediately for
their, and our, sake. Treatment is always better than
jail, but when it doesn't work then jail is better than
allowing them to hurt someone. The "system" is simply
not willing to follow up and, if necessary, isolate.
When we plea bargain things away or not charge them with
the offenses they actually commit we feed the fire
(so to speak) and eventually they hurt themselves or
others. I have worked with 3 mentally ill people in
the last 9 months that are MR and/or CD and they just
wander the streets until they get picked up and sent
to the hospital. The hospital finds out where they
are being housed and just ships them back to us. The
case workers do nothing to follow up, we can't lock
them in the facility, they walk right back out the
multiply that by all the crimes and people who commit
I never defend someone who hurts someone else; I only
point out that it could have been stopped a long time
ago and wasn't. It never is. Just look at every
article here and look at the police record. Then
figure in the times they weren't caught and..........

You ignore the influence drugs and alcohol have on people.
Back in the day people like this woman were warehoused in an institution where she would not be able to walk the streets and not even get close to a motor vehicle or drugs and alcohol.
Gobernut has been mainstreaming these irrational people for a long time and this wreck is just one result of this action by Gobernut.
Keep doing what your doing and we'll keep getting what we are getting, dead and injured innocents!

There are a percentage of single parents who do a really really good job and I was a single parent, my child is now grown, but unfortunately there are more single parents that don't do even a decent job. I agree we shouldn't judge everyone the same, but he does make some good arguments about the lack of parenting skills these days.

I heard that from a friend as well who visited her. She did not have alcohol in her system.

What is an idot?? I do have an idea what she has been through. its the same thing everyday people have to work through. Sure times are tough and maybe she had a messed up childhood but that's zero excuse to go drinking and driving and murder a little boy. And yes i do know who she is. Back in 2004 she lived in Willoway apartments off burnsville pkwy and co rd 5. She was dating an Asian drug dealer (think his name is Sam) and her mother lived in the same apartment complex and her mother was a lunatic. So my facts are straight. And where are these negative tests? Maybe use spellcheck next time before you make ignorant comments

Friends of Leah's went to visit her and that is where the information was found out.
Leah is beside herself with what has happened.
#51 Jul 24, 2010
yes she is so beside herself with what has happened she managed to get her facebook profile, where she talks of smoking weed the very day the crash happened, deleted.

Another loser on Minnesota's govt check that has destroyed another life - again. My condolences to the family of the little boy.

At a minumum she was speeding... also an illegal act. Read the newspaper account where the lady she passed speeding and driving dangerously was trying to call 911 when she went through the median and KILLED the boy.

This is a no brainer. If she isn't capable..... LOCK HER UP. Why put innocent people at risk? Our society has to stop protecting the dangerous at the risk of the decent, law abiding, RESPONSIBLE, citizens.
