Child Brings $3,700 Worth of Crack to Show-and-Tell

A child at Sweet Springs Elementary in Missouri brought his mother’s crack pipe and $3,700 worth of crack to show and tell at the school.
KSDK reported:

Officials at a small northwest Missouri elementary school say they were stunned when a kindergarten student brought his mom’s crack pipe and some drugs for show-and-tell.

KCTV reports that the boy showed the items on Sept. 6 at Sweet Springs Elementary School. School officials called police.

The boy’s 32-year-old mother was arrested and is charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

Court records indicate that the teacher told police that the boy had the pipe and “several baggies of crack rocks.” Officials say the drugs were worth about $3,700.

Bond was set at $7,500 for 32-year-old Michelle Marie Cheatham, the boy’s mother.

    Why did they leave the race of the mother and child out of their report?

    OMG, sad, and LOL! took the words right out of my mouth

    Poor child, and mother needs to go to rehab and the child needs help also and sent to a responsible guardian.

    The families who find themselves in the eyes of the law never thought it would be a little family member turning the in. Maybe that was what he wanted but a kindergartener, doubtful.

    The children these days are smart little cookies. I hope that things will be better for them and this child doesn’t pick up his mother’s bad habits.

    Gonna take a couple wild-assed guesses here. Chances are close to 100% that mom is a give-me girl (welfare), generally unproductive (part of the taking class), and a member of a protected minority.

    How’d I do?

  • Jim:

    KCTV 5 has a video report.

    I have 5 year old grandchildren. They would choose to bring a favorite car or doll for show and tell. What kind of hell hole must this child live in to think that a crack pipe, is normal and fun? I am totally sickened by this.

  • vagabond trader

    Smart kid, probably a cry for help.

  • Marty McFly

    Wanna bet a buck the mother is on government assistance?

  • Texas_Treeroach

    It appears that Mom is busy between school busses.

  • sarabeara

    Sweet Springs, indeed.

  • west1890

    Cheat ’em….. probably an appropriate name for mama. Want to bet she is intimately familiar with welfare and food stamps?

  • Nearly 5 decades of The Great Society (the most sickeningly ironic program title EVER) and its successors has brought us down to this level of degradation and decay. Way to go, lefties. You win. Proud of yourselves?

  • kc mom

    Mom’s husband died in a car crash last year and she’s on a military pension. She’s most likely white based upon the locale… Though that really has nothing to do with it, now does it? Come on now. Don’t liberals do enough race-baiting and name-calling? What it IS about is a sad situation and an example of yet another life ruined by drugs. I feel sorry for that baby. Thankfully, family stepped in. Prayers for everyone involved. This may be just the thing that mom needs to straighten out. One would hope so.

    they are what i call “posers”..

    iow: they’re hired help who post anti-race/creed/gender/etc. remarks
    in order to make it appear as if all conservatives fit the prog-dem-libs
    TEA Party terrorist profile, and sadly i find of late, that GP’s headlines
    and/or omissions tend to aid & abet their cause at times.. 🙁

    Maybe this woman is grieving, and maybe this is something that has been a long time coming. All I know is, the black sheep in my family have blue eyes, and they weren’t raised to do the things they have done.

    This woman has resources to get treatment, if she will accept it. It’s a small town, so I hope the judge and her family and church form a viable conspiracy to pull her back into life.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    It looks like her name is Michelle Marie Harring Cheatham.

    Here is a Facebook link.

    She apparently graduated from Sweet Springs R-7 High School in 1997, according to Classmates webpage.

    So, may I presume they just skipped nap time after that?

  • mercador

    Jesus is the only answer for this poor person and anyone else like her or in her condition. To the race people on this page, remember that evil does not discriminate. Good people succumb to drugs and other things that dominate their lives. many people judge by peoples outward appearance and that is really too bad for them, because sometimes they are angels on their way to help someone, and they missed them.

  • mercador

    Really, I think that little boy may have saved his mom’s life.

  • Wheeze

    THIS is obviously George Bushes fought….

  • Agreed, that race has nothing to do with this. The permissive leftist agenda is to blame, no matter what race is involved, and no matter what socio-economic strata are in play.

    Everyone is affected by the doomed-to-fail micro-engineering of rainbows and unicorns from Washington. Personal responsibility and societal norms? Ehh. Trash those. Someone might feel stifled, or put-upon. If it feels good, do it. Blame? Guilt? All obsolete concepts in the Great Society and forward. Downward.


    was odumbo there to show the kid how to smoke it… 🙂

  • Dick

    Mom of the Year material right there.

  • listen up

    WoW…thats a lot of welfare checks. Think what she could have spent that money on, like food, shoes for her kid, etc. Thats our tax money bro paying for all that crack for the poor.

    There is nothing funny about this. This is truly sad.

    “several baggies of crack rocks.”

    Is crack like chewing gum, where you need to bring enough for the entire class?

  • Mannie

    How’d I do?

    Well lets see: She had a military pension, was cooking or distributing meth and was white so I think that just makes you a racist, ignorant ass-bag. How’d I do?

  • virtuous_mom

    I knew this girl when she was in high school and she was good friends with my step-daughter. The girl was a good straight-forward kid. I lost touch with her after we moved away. I can just say it is heart-breaking to see she turned to this and I pray for her and her kids.


    Why when drugs are involved it has to be someone on welfare and black..did you guys looked around lately. Most whites from the suburb are just as drugged out come in the city to buy drugs. Where would a welfare recipient gets that type of money for drugs. story was already told when that amount of drugs was found you guys need to stop fronting.
