  1. I hope they really nail her ass! What a horrible thing to do! What’s wrong with these people. Hitting a child and then just fleeing?

  2. The little girl praise God is doing well. She suffered a severe laceration on her forehead and is dealing with swelling and soreness. She still has to deal with this whole situation mentally over time as horrible as it was. But we are thankful she is alive and well. I am a family friend and want to thank everyone who took the time to help her or simply prayed and showed concern.

  3. That’s Great to hear. 53 years old you would think by then you would have your act together, not running around at bars getting plaster, 7:15 in the morning!! I don’t think that the bar being open til 4 has anything to do with being drunk at 7 am REALLY
