What she needs is four or five more children so she can afford some adequate housing and some ribs.

Why is it against the law to sleep in the yard? Or on the sidewalk, since we ALL own it right?

The children were released to their grandmother.

Ford is charged with public intoxication and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Once the social workers show up, the charges will be dropped and she will get the kids back. Bet on it.

Well “apparently intoxicated” be damned!

The police now have the power to roust someone for the crime of being asleep on their own property? By what right did the police even set foot on the property without permission?

The camel already has three legs in the tent, folks.
