The Times-News of Hendersonville reports (http://bit.ly/1aVaiGb) the N.C. Highway Patrol said 23-year-old Christina Lee Duncan is charged with driving while impaired on drugs, reckless driving, misdemeanor child abuse, possession of marijuana and failing to have her kids in a child restraint system,

What a loser she is to be driving with three little children in her car unrestrained while she is high on drugs and alcohol. people like this are so low. poor kids to have her as a mother. I hope there is a relative who can care for these children . this woman needs serious help!
