    You kill your child through your addiction, I have no issue with that being a crime.

    Why drug addicts want children baffles the fuck out of me also.

    Quite simple. Was she responsible for her child's death? Yes - she admitted that. So she's guilty.

    On a personal level, I have a major issue with women who do drugs and have children. The damage that those women do to an innocent child seriously pisses me off.

    One of my sister's two daughters just had her second baby. They live in Meth Mountain, Alabama. My niece and the baby daddy have been in and out of jail, the kids have been taken away and given back, and they are on some kind of public assistance. Of course they spend the government handouts quickly and then steal and beg to get through the month. If it were not for my sister, the kids would probably be taken by the state due to negligence or incarceration. I don't have a lot of sympathy for anyone who chooses not to first, provide for their children, and second, keep their shit together enough so that number one can be accomplished.

    911 recordings from the mother of 2-month-old Aiden McGrew, who was mauled, dismembered and killed by a dog in his home, give new details about the tragic death.

    It was around 11:00 Friday morning when Chantel McGrew called 911 after finding her 2-month-old son. She went on to tearfully describe the graphic scene to the operator.

    "He's still breathing, but I need an emergency... I need EMS here quickly to the hospital as soon as possible please... I don't want him to die," she told the operator.

    When the operator asked McGrew if she knew what happened, she explained, "No Ma'am, I was at the doctor with my daughter."

    According to Dorchester County Sheriff LC Knight, Chantel McGrew took her 7-year-old daughter to a doctor that morning, leaving 2-month-old Aiden and another 2 and 1/2 year-old child with her husband 28-year-old Quintin McGrew.

    "My husband was sleeping, because when I walked in the door... He hasn't been feeling good. He was awake when I left, but I guess he dosed off after I left," McGrew said.

    Aiden was left in a baby swing at the home.

    "I believe my 2 and 1/2 year old got the baby out of the swing," McGrew told the operator.

    "I believe the dog went after my son, because the dog has blood all over him," she added.

    The call also gives more insight into the temperament of the dog that attacked and his history with the family.

    "I have a dog of my own that is very good with him, but I was dog-sitting another dog for a friend of mine. I believe that dog got a hold of my son, because that dog has blood all over him," McGrew said.

    Apparently the dog was still making advances at the young child after McGrew returned home.

    "He's put in the bedroom away from the baby because he tried to go after the baby again when I got home," she told the operator.

    The McGrew family dog, Lucky, and the dog thought to have attacked the baby were both held in the custody of the Dorchester County Sheriff's Department for several days. Tuesday morning, the dog that attacked the baby, was taken from the Sheriff's facility. No word yet on where that dog was taken.

    Chris Nisbet, the Dorchester County Coroner, listed Aiden McGrew's manner of death as homicide. Nisbet released the two-month-old's autopsy results Monday afternoon stating McGrew died from "exsanguination, due to transection of blood vessels, due to animal eating, due to parental neglect."

    Feeding your child meth through the umbilical cord is no different than feeding your child meth with a spoon. Lock her up. Neuter her, too!

    Each child will increase the amount of entitlement checks, so they can continue living parasitically off the hard work and earnings the "barely getting by" workers are making. Called "soaking the poor."

    Well of course it's not her fault! It SOCIETY's fault. Bullshit. I am part of this society and I didn't give her drugs or make her use drugs. She bent her own elbow to do that. And she fed it to her child. She's a murderer.
