BSU Endangered Child

Indianapolis, IN

#2 Jan 25, 2013
Dr. Kathryn Loy Fletcher of Ball State endangered a child. The liquor doesn't force itself down her throat. She repeatedly risked our families on the road to accidents or death. When she decided to drink, drive, and put children in the car it became a crime. It is bad enough to do this at all, but to continue drinking afterwards is a real problem. This professor teaches child psychology and ethics in psychology. Ball State teaches by example. Is this acceptable to anyone besides the BSU trustees?
