Mecklenburg County jail is currently is currently doing a harmfull deed to a tiny baby. Isn´t that a crime? A 2 month old baby knows who its´ mother is - her smell, her face, her voice and her milk. also a 2 month old baby is still does not know it is a seperate individual. Instead it thinks it is the same person as its´ mother. So guess what happens when a 2 month old baby is denied the presence of its´ mother! It is not just the absence of breastmilk that is the issue here. It is the absence of the mother in general. This poor poor baby is being denied the presence of its´ mother, who is essential to its´ wellbeing.
Bring the poor baby and his mother back together!!!!

Tell that mother to stop breaking the law. If she did not break the law, she would not be separated from her child.
