Child Tips Off Cops To Drug-Dealing Mom -

United States
March 18, 2007 12:01am CST
A 28-year-old mother in Milwaukee, Wisconsin was arrested after her 6-year-old daughter tipped police off to her drug dealing ways. The police said the girl was wise to her mother's cocaine dealing, telling them she chops up a white substance, puts it in bags and take them -- and the girl -- to alleys. There, people gave the mother money for the bags, police said the girl recounted. The mother of four was arrested after police found 55 bags of cocaine worth about $20 each at the woman's home. She was being held Saturday pending charges of child abuse and possession with intent to sell. How stupid is this lady? And what punishment do you believe she deserves? Obviously, she processed the drugs in front of her children, thus endangering them. Anything could have happened in that household. What do you think? Lloyd

I am glad that the 6 year old has learned some values after all - even if I am nopt sure from where. This woman certainly deserves to loose custody of the child/children so that they will have a chanse of a normal up-bringing!

She seems to be a very observing little girl. I wish the best for her also. Lloyd

It is so sad that even a person with kids, would not put the interest of the kids first, and protect them from something like this. This woman does not deserve to be a mother. The kids need to be removed, and she needs to go to jail for a long time!

She didn't use good judgement at all. The way the child described it was so detailed. She was wrong. I would like to know what happens. Lloy

The scary thing is, this happens all the time all over the country. I applaud this little girl for standing up and doing the right thing.

You aren't the first person saying that it happens all the time. I never heard a story like this. I hope makes people think about what they are doing to their children. Lloyd

I believe she will see some jail time. The judge will be angry. Lloyd

This mother should rot in hell and never get the chance to get her kid back.

That's a rather strong statement, but many people here agree with you. Lloyd

Well of the top she needs parenting classes. Not the standard ones either. This was clearly a woman who had been off her rocker. She is already going to serve jail time. She should be in NY when they caught her. She would have stiffer sentences. She needs not ever get the little girl back. Maybe a family member can open their home to her. I also don't think a cop should have been speaking to a child without a lawyer. We all have rights.

She's going to have trouble getting her children back. And yes she was off her rocker. Lloyd

i think i read this in the paper yesterday, you must live in the same area, or else this made national news! its pretty sad this story. there are a lot of bad people in the world, and a lot of good.. that little girl is a good one., hopelfully she is not too messed up by now. the mother should go to prison for a long time, and never be allowed to see her children again.. she endangered them for a long time.

Oh this is terrible! I feel for the daughter and good on her for tipping off the police! Her mother is plain stupid and does not deserve to have children. I hope her daughter is taken care of and they find her a better home. I get angry when I hear stories/news about things like this - she should get the maximum sentence.

I also hope the daughter finds a better home. She sure deserves it. Lloyd

The mother may be stupid and irresponsible, but it's good to see that the daughter somehow, somewhere picked up some sense and an understanding of right and wrong. If she's lucky she'll end up with a family who can help her apply those instincts and grow up right.

You are so right. The 6 year old daughter seemed to be the only responsible person in that family. I'm sure the authorities will look out for her best interests. Lloyd

She doesn't deserve to have children. I hope the judge throws the book at her. She put her children in danger. She is quite stupid.

I agree with you. Obviously she was doing quite a bite of dealing and people knew she had money. Some crazy person could have robbed her and killed everyone in the house. So she really did endanger her family. Lloyd

I am just glad the little girl is smart enough to report her mother to the police. Usually a dealer is a user too so this mother possibly just neglect her children. I know it is quite bad to see their four children now scattered or living with relatives but then they will have a possible good future rather than staying with their mother who somebody will be caught anyways and goes to jail.

Hopefully they will be able to stay with more responsible relatives and not be separated in various foster homes. Lloyd

I think this is definately a case of hard-knock lessons. The mother learned that even 6 year olds are paying attention and it isn't a good idea to do stupid things around them.

Never underestimate your children. They are very observant. They see what's going around them. Lloyd

Thats sick! I hope that they take her kids and put them intoa good home. I hope that she gets big time in jail to sit and Think about what she has done to herself and to all four of her children. Makes you think just how many others are out there doing the same thing. Thank you for sharing this story! Stacy

A lot of people agree with you that she should spend big time in jail. I know she regrets what she did. Lloyd

It is terrible. It's almost like she want to expose her children to a life of crime instead of a life of education and knowledge. Lloyd

Well in a situation like that I believe the child should be taken away from the parents. Your right god knows what could of happened with that young child in the house. It was really stupid on her behalf and it sounds like she is going to pay for it now.
