Mother Caught on Video Taking Her Son Into an Alley and Doing the UNTHINKABLE

By

Child abuse is a very real problem, and it takes many forms.

Lauren Story learned that lesson the hard way when someone caught her on a cellphone camera subjecting her 4-year-old son to the horrors of substance abuse.

From Fox News:

Surveillance video shows the horrifying scene of an Ohio mother shooting up heroin in an alley as her small son looked on.

Lauren Story, 29, of Green Township, is facing charges after cops say she was seen in the video injecting the drug with a syringe along with a male friend, Fox 19 Cincinnati reported Friday. Her 4-year-old son sat in front of them, playing with a smartphone.

WARNING — the following video might be upsetting to some viewers:


The video was given to police, who shortly after arrested Story. She was in possession of four syringes at the time.

The boy has been sent to live with relatives. His mother is forbidden to see him unless county child caseworkers are present.

This is just unbelievably tragic. A child shouldn’t have to grow up without his or her mother. But when a parent puts addiction ahead of the well-being of that child, authorities have no choice but to make the hard decision.

As country prosecutor Dave Wood told reporters following Story’s arrest:

“People have sympathy for people who use heroin but that sympathy ends when you’re doing it in front of your children.”
