— Wichita police arrested a woman who they say left nine young children at a mall while she used drugs.

The children, ranging in age between less than 1 to 10 years old, were left at the Towne East Square mall Tuesday evening.

Authorities say a 35-year-old woman was supposed to be watching the children but abandoned them at the mall while she smoked methamphetamine.

KAKE-TV reports mall security noticed the children walking around unsupervised. Three of the children were returned to their parents. The other six were placed into police protective custody.

The woman was booked into the Sedgwick County jail. She faces six counts of child endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The courts might sentence her to probation or jail time. They might force her into counseling or into drug treatment. They might fine her. But what the courts cannot do is take away her "right" to produce more children.

I infer that the 35-year old woman was not the mother. The article says she was supposed to be watching them. It is curious, however, that not all the children were returned to the parents.

The US used to allow forced sterilizations. So did Nazi Germany.

I agree with your implication. As a society, heads we lose and tails we lose. Unfortunately, her children will lose more.

This is an ignorant statement and gives you the appearance of being small minded.

As usual, your argument is blatant lie and personal attack, i don't think it makes you look small minded. I think it makes you look silly.
