Hope Memphis throws the book at the mother for leaving toddlers home alone to " drive some dude home".

The fireman was more upset than the aunt. My favorite part was that she wouldn't do anything different, knowing what she now knows. That mother better be charged with neglect - why in the h*ll did they both need to go drop off the grass cutting dude.

There seem to be only two people who are screwed up in the head. Unfortunately, they were the ones
responsible for these two toddlers. The aunt wouldn't do anything differently??!!

Strangers care more for the welfare of those two boys than their own flesh and blood. The fireman was
obviously distraught. Such a sad story.

There is an average level of intelligence - these people are a few standard deviations below, with either some mental illness or lack of awareness to boot. Unfortunately, these are the types of people in generational poverty, lacking the capability to better themselves and lacking the foresight to not keep having children they can't afford or take care of.

My heart breaks for these kids, and the poor firefighters who had to not only uncover their bodies, but also deal with these looneytunes.

"I really need to get in there and see if my purse burnt up pssft <laugh> cause I have my food stamp card and everything in there"

Wow, just wow.

This is who our money is supporting. She seems so deserving of my hard earned money and yours too, doesn't she?
