    ..."Guess what the people look like that gave the grandchild 2nd and 3rd degree burns in their trailer, used as a Meth Lab. Same stupidity, differnt drug, but same end result. They just added child abuse and neglect, when not being able to take the child for care. Why? Fear of being caught, and it still happened...."
