A young boy in kindergarten is the youngster who unknowingly got his mother, Michelle Marie Cheatham, 32, arrested for drug use. Cheatham was charged with possession of a controlled substance and one count of first-degree child endangerment after her young son decided it would be a great idea to show his class his mother’s drug paraphernalia.
Sweet Springs Elementary School in Missouri probably never expected to have to deal with something like this. In fact, he didn’t just bring in his mother’s personal supply of methamphetamine, he brought in baggies totaling a value of $3,700. This bitch was selling drugs and got ratted on by her own son who probably can’t even read yet.
When I called the prosecutor about it, they said, “You’re kidding me, aren’t you?”‘ said Police Chief Richard Downing.
According to reports, Cheatham’s life went off the rails after her husband died earlier this year in a car crash.
This kid probably just wanted a way out and knew what he was doing. He took his mother’s drugs, gained sympathy from his school, and now doesn’t have to deal with his mother who obviously had some issues. Yes, her husband had died and that must have been awful. Sadly, that’s no excuse because plenty of people have deceased relatives and don’t leave $3,700 worth of crack easily accessible by their elementary school children.

Congratulations to any and all service men and women that have been forced to keep their lives a secret for any amount of time! Today, the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will be implemented, and gay individuals will have the right to serve their country, openly, as gay Americans.
The policy was originally a compromise that President Clinton had made in 1993, in the hopes of not discriminating against the gay citizens who wanted to fight and serve for their country. Unfortunately, his plan backfired and initiated the first actual law that made it legal for military personnel to be discharged sue to sexual orientation. In fact, “don’t ask” was never the intention of the military, and any valid evidence of homosexual behavior was reason to be fired.
“From this day forward, gay and lesbian Soldiers may serve in our Army with the dignity and respect they deserve,” Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh and Army officials wrote (see a PDF of the letter here). “For over 236 years, the U.S. Army has been an extraordinary force for good in the world. Our Soldiers are the most agile, adaptable and capable warriors in history — and we are ready for this change.”
There was a gentleman by the name of JD Smith, who was the co-director of Outserve, and he has decided to reveal his identity on Day 1 of the implementation. Josh Seefried is a finance officer in the Air Force and 2009 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy.
“I personally felt it was important to come out of the closet on Day 1 to show that sexual orientation in the military will truly be a nonissue,” Seefried said. “Overseas we have seen that some militaries still do not have people that feel comfortable coming out with their sexual orientation, even years after the policy has changed. I hope that by coming out, along with the other military members who chose to come out publicly in the pages of our magazine, help to show our military was ready for this change.”
