Good parenting! She does not permit her children to watch her shoot up. I think I saw dr Phil teaching that on Oprah.

Is it time for acoustic portal to complain about the police "just going in" and that drugs are a right and harm no one but the user?

And as we as taxpayers give her government provided aid, she buys ******. What a brilliant society we live in.

F-N animals.

=> Alphacentar...I'm against zealous and unreasonable arrests...I personally believe that there's too much government, including police involvement, in citizens' every day life, and I do believe that our law enforcement cross reasonable boundaries at times. I believe that police intervention was completely reasonable for this case, as children, as well as the mother were at risk of harm. It's a disgusting and disturbing scene.

Alphacentar...I'm grateful for my freedom of speech, and yours..feel free to obsess on me any time.

Enjoy this beautiful day!

wait...they got a report of a male and female shouting but she was passed out by the time they got there? sounds like bs to me. either there was not shouting or it took cops a while to get there for her to pass out that cold.

Well said accousticportal. The article states that police came because of reports of a man and woman yelling and children crying. The oldest child tells same story. Even the kid says he asked the man and woman for help??? Think the police need to get the rest of the story, or the NR, but something is missing. Did they question the man that was at the house? Does he know who the woman is that he was with? her name? What happened? Sounds like a case for Dick Tracey.

The screaming could of been several possibilities. The man and woman that were no longer in the residence when the police arrived may have had a disagreement about the situation they were presented with. It's not uncommon for an overdose person to be left to die or for someone to call 911 and take off in fear of further involvement. As I am sure the child was fearful and had an outlash of confusion. What's sad and disgraceful is that these two children were brought into a life such as this, presented with little chance in becoming what they could be. We can only hope justice is served and there two innocent little ones are given a chance. Drugs are selfish and become dictators to ones life. I pray for the brave and innocent babes, this could of ended even more horrific, thanks to concerned citizens and law enforcement it didn't.

I think Moundsville Police is doing a good job. I'm sure it only took moments for them to get to the home of which a mother overdosed. Even when that's not even how the call came in. I'm sure that the children in the case were the officers first priority. Good Job guys :-)

When you see local kids covered in tatoos, dyed black and reddish hair, sickly looking and dressed strangely, you are looking at this epidemic. Why is this happening? Did you know the Wetzel County Health Dept was in a collapsing building so guess what the solution was..move it to Tyler County..oh, thanks for another lost resource.Stop this at the top! Organized Crime! We are letting this happen through non-existant enforcement of this and other illegal activities.

It is sad that in today's society people are still stereotyped if you look different or don't fit in you must be a drug addict, it could be your sons teacher or even your grandma addiction is not racist it will take anyone or anything that tries to stand before it don't criticize the ones who are struggling instead try to help them and don't let the future be predicted by today
