Isn't that Special?

You all remember Show and Tell, that first grade exercise where the student brings something from home and explains it to the class. I bet the teacher's eyes crossed when she heard this one.
A 20-year-old Shreveport woman has been arrested after her first-grade son brought a rock of crack cocaine to school for show-and-tell.
Yeah, buddy! Crack cocaine. Tell 'em all about Momma's little pick-me-up. I'm sure the administration was charmed when the teacher showed up holding a bag of crack.
Police were especially disturbed by the child's understanding of crack cocaine. They said he seemed so accustomed to the highly addictive drug that he thought there was nothing wrong with bringing it to school.
And ya see? That's what kids do. They think that whatever Momma and Daddy (although there's no mention of a Daddy here) do is just fine.
Police did not release the name of the school, saying they are still investigating. Lachristie Thomas was booked on a charge of improper child supervision, a misdemeanor. Police say the six-year-old was placed in foster care.
Hooray for foster care. Momma should go to jail for a long, long time.

Twenty year old mom? Kid in first grade? That makes him about what, six years old? so she was calving at the ripe age of fourteen?

We need to start a neutering program, big time!
