This is just sad. And it makes my blood boil. When they catch this woman I don’t want to hear any weepy stories about how hard her life has been. The woman has to take responsibility! No amount of community service will make this right

That poor guy. Just horrible. Leaves me speechless what happens to people any more. I think I would have rather died if it was me. Hopefully, he feels differently.
