Face of the day

A Baltimore grandmother has been accused of poisoning her 17-month-old grandson to death with Methadone.
Towanda Reaves, 50, has been charged with murder and child abuse after admitting to police that she rubbed the powerful drug on the gums of two of her grandchildren so they would go to sleep during a July 4 visit. The other grandchild, a girl born three months after the deceased boy, survived the dose.
Normally given to heroin addicts to help them overcome their addictions, Methadone can also be used as a painkiller. – dailymail.co.uk

    At the very least we know they will lock her up and throw away the key.

  • Muzza

    Towanda, that’s a bit of a silly first name :-)

  • Dumrse

    Seen her, she lives up Hone’s way.

    • BobaJob

      Not just there – low life child abuses are in every community.

      • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

        Yes, but they’re significantly more prevalent in certain communities…

    Took one look at her and was not surprised to hear what she had done….stop reinforcing my tendency to judge a book by its cover WO!!

    • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

      Cam is all about confounding prejudice. We’re all taught not to judge a book by its cover in all cases, which is fine. In most cases, we can and should.

    Bullet between the eyes will cure that.

    • BobaJob

      Should use her to test Fonteera products on.

      • Nechtan

        She has tested plenty of products.

    • Jimmie

      No it won’t. A bullet only works if there is a brain inside.

  • Never in the dark…..

    Sometimes I’m inclined to buy into the Evolution Theory thing, particularly when these recessives pop up.

  • Col

    I m sure I saw her coming out of the green Party office the other day?

  • Magoo

    Caption should read – ‘Daaa, me no brain.’
