While she's in there can they tie her tubes? We have enough trailer trash welfare kids sucking our system dry already.
She's not exactly mom of the year material anyway.

Honestly, was this even necessary? If the baby daddy didn't want to press charges, why is the DA getting involved? For publicity? I don't feel sorry for her at all, she's white trash and a bad mom, but she didn't beat him up (he's 3 times her size) and if he didn't press charges, they should just drop it. Lame.

Being black does not equal speaking ebonics...black and white people speak ebonics...it does not have a color...I don't think the type of help she needs is going to come from jail...if anything...it'll make her even more depressed
