Idk if u guys don’t believe it or do. But I call that a possession. That...was a demon. Or logically it was a “mental health issue”. It could be possible that it was a mental health issue, but that’s too paranormal for me.

Thank God for those two bystanders Tim, and Stacy for stepping in, and turning a potentially tragic situation into a heroic one. And now on a much brighter note. The very next day, that kid went to the MVD, and got his driver's license. And is now a driving instructor in his town.

Yo they needed to knock that lady out. As big as that black guy was? He should have hit her.
Denise Overbeck (3 days ago)
Mental illness or not, she tried to kill her kids and had the where with all to get out and walk away without caring about the kids. She should have been arrested and put in a padded cell till the aby was born. She needs to pay dor her crime. Prison for the criminally insane.,and never be able to see the kids again, unless they ask to? So what was the outcome? Where is the dad? People posted this on fb and it just popped up when i was lookimg for something else., they dont post the outcome. I will try to find it. I hope she was put away, remember andrea yates? She follow throufh and killed all of her kids.

God bless all those heroes who save those kids. Those kids needs to be taken away from her for a long while. The mother is a huge danger to them kids. If the dad did that he was for sure gonna be sleeping in jail for the rest of his life sick or no sick but the mother ohh she needs attention

Children: HELP US WE ARE GONNA DIE mom: Don't worry
Sarah Redd (6 days ago)
She almost killed 3 small children, and some of you are talking about this woman like she’s the victim here. That’s fucked up. She doesn’t even deserve help after this shit IMO. She needs to be locked away. *People need to stop justifying horrific crimes with mental illnesses.*

Woman almost kills children, does not go to jail. Woman cuts student's hair off, goes to prison. Both of them are bad, but one is worse.
