    Is there an update on this story? Thanks

  • chrissara1011 Nov 30, 2012

    @wewoods I would hope that the fact their parents lived in a hotel was not the only reason they were removed from them. If it was i feel that was a misuse of power. The parents were providing a roof over their childrens head and food and love if i go by your statement "I have two children living in my home righ now (7 and 3) that were taken away from their home which was a hotel room you rented by the week. " Especially when there are a lot of children that are not cared for or given attention or loved. I SMH that you think you are so high and mighty bc you have a home to live in and you feel that makes you more quallified to raise someone elses children for that reason alone.

    Are you not capable of comprehending the simple fact that if there was no war on drugs there would not be a huge group of the new generation of entrepreneurs making a fine living and mocking the government's feeble attempts to stop them? for every drug dealer arrested, five new ones spring up. There was no recession in the drug sale trade, was there?

    JCC - Many won't consider the foster parent program because they're hands would be severely tied by what they could do for the children. It's very restrictive.

  • justcommonsense Nov 30, 2012

    wewoods, folks in the system such as yourself who will truly care and love these kids is rare. It takes a special kind of folks to be foster parents...to really be a stable loving home for them. What is sad is that there are a few too many in the system taking care of children who really don't provide that kind of care.

  • wewoods Nov 30, 2012

    I'm glad there is social services to act on the childrens behalf. I have two children living in my home righ now (7 and 3) that were taken away from their home which was a hotel room you rented by the week. Not a place for children but their parent didn't see it that way. Thank you SS's for getting those children out of there and in my home where they will be loved, protected, fed and cared for like my own. The parent still loves them, but sometimes parents don't want to give up their kids no matter what. Love will blind you sometimes from the truth.

    Social Services are for helping children, how can that EVER be a sad part of the story?

  • justcommonsense Nov 30, 2012

    No, they didn't think about the effects on their children before setting up shop. And that to me is unforgivable. I agree that the parents do not need to have custody of them at this time. And I too hope that there will be no long term physical effects on them. The psychological damages have already been done IMO

  • wewoods Nov 30, 2012

    With kids involved there is no excuse. Throw the book at them.
    I'm tired of doing time because of other peoples crimes. Their actions are no longer just affecting themselves and their own bodies, now its children and they should be put on the same list as child molesters. Live and let live/the right for the pursuit of happiness - are all being taken away from the rest of us because of people like this. People, your pursuit of happiness is your business and only your business until you affect someone else's life, liberty or pursuit of happiness. I believe if you keep it private and away from the innocent and young, have at it but endanger or infringe on others and that freedom should be taken away, and in this case FOREVER. I pray the damage done to these young bodies doesn't leave them short of life or in pain the rest of it. Did you think about that before setting up your lab??? No, probably not, just thinking about yourself. Thats what meth does..

  • justcommonsense Nov 30, 2012

    I agree the child's name should not have been in the story at all. What were they thinking?

  • charmcclainlovesdogs2 Nov 30, 2012

    The saddest part of this is that social services now wants custody of the children

    That is the best part, Social Services getting the children. At least they will be provided for and put where they will be cared for and loved. Of course they will get food and be kept warm in a loving home. I guess the parents was not thinking about those things.

  • charmcclainlovesdogs2 Nov 30, 2012

    "The parents get hooked on meth. They start cooking meth,"

    Because the parents was using the meth themselves, they gave no regard to their children. Hopefully the Social Services will step in and find the children a good loving home.

  • Save It Nov 30, 2012

    The saddest part of this is that social services now wants custody of the children. A step up from parents running a meth lab but not much of a step.

  • HANS FOR PRESIDENT!!!!! JK Nov 30, 2012

    reason why to make certain drugs legal. Atleast the children had a roof over their heads.
    rk1115

    You're kidding....right? Obviously you have no idea how contaminated that roof over their heads has become due to the production of meth. Let alone the fact that the poor excuses of parents could very easily have blown that roof right up along with everyone in it. Unreal

  • Curlyq Nov 30, 2012

    The name of little girl should not be in the story....she's 4! My heart goes out to the family....I went to high school with this girl and I cannot stop thinking about her and everyone affected. That mug is haunting....

  • original intent Nov 30, 2012

    Why do you think our military is STILL in Afghanistan?? To make the world "safe for democracy??"--LOL!! NOPE to protect the the Poppy Farmers from the Taliban!CIA does have a "black budget" also--and HSBC bank is being onvestigated for drug money laudnering--BIG time...

  • WASP Nov 30, 2012

    Sad for the kids. Hopefully they have some caring family members somewhere that can take care of them. Obviously their parents don't.

  • romneycare Nov 30, 2012

    why is that lady crying in her mugshot?? It's not like the Meth life chose her... she is the one who chose it.

  • NCSUer Nov 30, 2012

    Why do you publish the 4 year olds name? She's a minor and now her name will be associated with child abuse/meth lab.

    Misdemeanor child abuse!! No child abuse is minor-and misdemeanor indicates mild or minor vs. felony child abuse! Any child abuse should be felony!!!

    That being said-throw the book away on these clowns!!

  • Glass Half Full Nov 30, 2012

    Burn the house, it's forever contaminated, jail and detox the adults, find safe loving homes for the children. If people want to use this mess and ruin or end their lives, that's one thing. It's totally a different thing when you involve children. The report on WRAL TV this morning said there were chemicals being stored in the childrens room and the nurses at the hospital could smell the meth on the childs skin. That crosses the line.

    Of course if we were not waging the ridiculous war on drugs there would be no need for methamphetamine laboratories. piene2

    I can only theorize that piene2 says the things he/she does only to get under peoples' skin. Someone could only have that approach until their own lives were affected and they became a victim. Then we probably would not have waged enough war to protect them. But mos Libs I know don't need anything to change unless it affects or offends them direclty. Then it must, and right away.

  • samdutes Nov 30, 2012

    There's no ridiculous war on alcohol, but yet there are moonshine stills found just about every few months or so......just sayin'...:)

  • Bose12 Nov 30, 2012

    I wonder what the comments would have been if the "other group of people" were committing this crime and to have kids involved... There would have been 3 times the negative comments...

    If you dont think the CIA has been invovled in the drug game in the USA you might want to read so unclassified CIA documents. Even former CIA members said the CIA pushed crack into the US.

  • beachluvr Nov 30, 2012

    My thoughts are with the children! As someone who has a family member that is addicted to this drug, it's the worst thing to see the children suffer.

  • piene2 Nov 30, 2012

    I guess the methamphetamine laboratory people need to find some odorless way to manufacture methamphetamine. Of course if we were not waging the ridiculous war on drugs there would be no need for methamphetamine laboratories.

  • Tarheel born Nov 30, 2012

    And another person who thinks it just that easy to "go after the big investors"...do you really think its that easy? For every drug dealer that has been taken off the street, 5 more come out. It's obvious that you must have a plan to do this so please share your wisdom with law enforcement. swedishchef2

    Especially when the CIA is one of the biggest investors thier is.

    Those poor children. They've been exposed to toxic waste. I hope the parents never get them back and that healthy, loving homes are found for them.

  • donedidit Nov 29, 2012

    THANK YOU swedishchef2.... If it were only that easy. People expect law enforcement to perform miracles and then complain about how they went about performing those miracles. It's exhausting.

  • Rebelyell55 Nov 29, 2012

    Want to see people locked and a kept there for awhile, then ya better be ready for some serious tax dollars. While our system seem faulty, they can only lock up so many people and hoping that they get the worse ones off the street. Just like other agencies, there is waste and abuse, but if we want more people locked up, and longer time, we have to have more prisons.

  • johnny2times Nov 29, 2012

    When are the powers that be going to get tough enough to stop the drug madness? In other words; When are the powers that be going to go after the big time investors in the drug and prostitution business whether they be doctors, lawyers, gang druglords, cartels or other monied entities who are very powerful and armed to the teeth? When? I think the answer is obvious. Never. They bust the little guy and brag about how good they are doing. So get used to seeing your children turn to toast while you stand helplessly by and listen to the same excuses over and over and......

    You're in it bad when you have to make a drug that's 100X more lethal to make than it is to use and it's basically a heart attack in a pipe.

  • oceancandle Nov 29, 2012

    Misdemeanor child abuse? Seriously? These kids were breathing in toxic fumes and were exposed to the potential of an explosion.

  • wayneboyd Nov 29, 2012

    Some people shouldn't be allowed to have pets, much less children. God bless the little one.
