Laquanda Newby, 25, hardly put the best case forward at her surrender for child abuse. She was charged after leaving her children inside a hot car outside of a Sam’s Club. However, when she appeared at the courthouse to turn herself in, she was later accused of leaving her children in a locked car with the windows rolled up. She is now charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency or abuse of a child after for the abandonment outside of the Henrico County Courthouse on Monday, June 8, 2015.
The police found the children and gave them water and snacks. They later contacted the father and turned them over to him.
Notably, the temperature that day hit 90 degrees.

One word: Darwin. (I’m sorry if that ruffles anyone’s feathers in flat-earth Kansas, but if this isn’t a clear cut case for evolution I don’t know one.)
Ms. Fromm–at the risk of encouraging you: thanks. I just spit a mouthful of Life cereal and 1% milk all over my monitor. “Bonda” indeed.
Stories like this are a true guilty pleasure because, you know, stupid is funny but there is stupid and there is—um, this. And yet: children. Sigh.
There is no cure for stupid.
Hmmm. I feel an Irish Poem coming on!
An Irish Poem by Squeeky Fromm
There once was a gal named Laquanda
Of her kids, she was not very fonda!
She left them to swoon,
In a hot car in June!
I wonder if she’s out on bonda???
Karen, Child Protective Services is a tough job. Their unit was next to my unit and I saw some great social workers and some horrible ones. It’s a tough job if you’re smart[book, people and street smart] and hard working. But if you’re dumb and a sloth, kids die. That’s not saying even the good social workers don’t have kids die on their caseload. But, most often it’s incompetence and sloth.
guess her stealin’, druggin’, hookin’, swisher sweet smokin days is over!….allelujah!
