WOW......what the heck are

WOW......what the heck are people thinking? Making meth with your child around, some people do not deserve to be parents, simple as that. It is bad enough to get yourself addicted to drugs but to endanger your child in the process of horrible.

Meth manufacturers

If you're evil enough to make that poison, you don't care about anybody but yourself. Thank God that baby was taken away from that so-called father.

Aiken County, meth capital of South Carolina. 11 labs, probably many many more, and it's not even June yet.

To sorry to work a legal job

To sorry to work a legal job ?? Putting the child in danger while making drugs , thats a shame. Thanks Aiken County Sheriff’s Office for catching these folks. I know they are innocent until proven guilty.... but it still looks like the drugs are taking ownership of peoples lives.

.........what will people do

.........what will people do for money? disgusting !! I recently bumped into an old friend (in his 80's); he had a bottle of Viagra with him. Laughingly, I asked what in the world are you doing with that at your age??? He replied "nothing", I get them from the doctor and sell them by the "pill" for $40.00 each..............LOL, but, that is where we are at now!!!
