????What prompted THAT response? Yes, she's a woman: but, she pulled a really Dumba$$ stunt, not to mention endangering her kids lives. That's what happened here. Why do some people spew such racist remarks?

I never thought of that. I'll have to try that one next time. I thought I would have to wait until my kids were 16 to drive me around drunk. I guess not. I'll just stick em in the trunk until I am done at the bar so they don't cause trouble.

"She also allegedly told deputies that she'd taken Percocet, a prescription painkiller for 'when the kids are acting wild.'"

What do the kids take when their mother is acting wild?

It could be that the kids DO have fathers, that would like to have them. My brother's wife is addicted to alcohol and gambling, has a recent felony conviction for theft, and endangers their infant and preschooler on a regular basis, yet my brother cannot get custody of them. Several attorneys have told him that the courts will not take custody of an infant from his mother unless she gives him up voluntarily. I'm just glad this story didn't feature my nephews. And yes, my brother and sister in law are both white, upper middle class citizens - it happens in white families too.

You got it wrong when they reach 16 lock them in the trunk when you are at the bar! Then let them out to drive you home. Look at the advantage you know they are not at the house having a party with your booze!

LET ME TELL YOU THOSE CHILDREN DO HAVE A FATHER. HE IS AWAY ON ACTIVE DUTY SERVING OUR COUNTRY DURING THIS HORRIBLE TIME! THEY ARE LETTING THE MOTHER SIT IN JAIL WHERE SHE BELONGS. THE CHILDREN ARE WITH THE GRANDFATHER TILL HE GETS HOME AND HE WILL GET FULL CUSTODY FOR HE ALREADY HAS A LAWYER WORKING ON THIS CASE. AND BTW WHO CARES WHAT RACE HE IS? HE HAS A FULL TIME JOB, SERVES HIS COUNTRY AND LOVES HIS CHILDREN.

Oh she deserves to be in Iraq for sure. See how it feels when the roles are changed around for once. Her ex-husband was there for a long time while they were married and she pulled a lot of shenanigans on him.

What's the problem? They always say you should have a designated driver if you're going to drink. I say she deserves a medal, not a ticket.

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!
