    If she is “clean and sober” I live on the planet xxcuuudddnnna. Why did this drugged out waste have custody?

    Do everyone a favor and get her neutered. Judging by the look of her, she’s still doing drugs. She is not mommy material.

    “Keer is on probation for drug-related offenses.”

    As if that wasn’t plainly obvious by the booking photo.

    I hope this “mother” gets everything she deserves. An over flowing tub??? WHO leaves their child in a tub while water is still running?! Even if he wasn’t an “infant” … I wouldn’t leave my toddler in a bathroom ALONE let alone with a tub still being filled with water.

    So there were four adults in the house and not one of them had the common sense to NOT leave a BABY in the bathtub alone? I hope every single person in that house is charged with negligent homicide or manslaughter.
