— New Jersey police say a 4-year-old boy shared cocaine with his friends at day care because his father told him it was candy.

Newark police say 25-year-old Shaheed Wright of East Orange put several baggies of cocaine inside his son’s jacket after police nearly caught him with it. The boy shared the drugs with three other 4-year-olds at his day care center Friday.

A teacher spotted a girl with a baggie in her mouth and called authorities after seeing the white powdery substance.

The children were taken to a hospital, but none were injured. Police found more baggies of cocaine after searching the boy’s pockets.

Wright was charged with four counts of child endangerment and drug offenses.

Get a life Boris. Parents of all races do really stupid sh** to their kids. Just follow the daily news, and you'll see that. But of course you had to go there, when you'll probably chastise someone else in the future for doing the same and playing that card on the other side.

I'm very glad that the kids are ok; they are very lucky that they had a smart and quick-thinking teacher. Good teachers make the world go 'round.

As for the father, I hope that he gets prison, and I hope that his fellow prisoners let him know that they don't appreciate his intentional abuse of children. Hopefully he gets a lot of time for this, which is dissimilar to our local courts.
