As disturbing as these allegations may sound, I was not nearly as abhorred as when I read the articles in the APP and Manchester Patch regarding the alleged abuse and cover up of a three month old by his own parents.

What are you talking about? Enough sense, what to drive the kid around so stoned out of her mind that she nodded out at the wheel. You must be joking right?

those of you that resort to name calling and other ridiculous suggestions should remember that there is some mother,father,sister, brother, etc. that should not be subjected to such harsh criticism. they have enough to deal with without your foolish comments.

I dont have any names to say but just hope that the child gets a new mother that deserves her. FORGET Kerri the girl..the family should thank God the baby is alive and wasnt killed in the car with her driving under the influence!
