She loved her children and did what she could to take care of them. Some people struggle in life and aren’t blessed with opportunities because their parents were shit! She was in college trying to do something wit her life, and stuck in a bad situation, so shut your Damn mouth if you don’t know the details. You probably don’t even have papers, while living off the system, while hard working people like myself pay your section 8. Please, Hazme un favor, cierra la boca o voy a hacerlo por ti. Gracias pendeja.

    • Yanira Manzano her kids are my concern jackass, they loved their mother and she had no control over what her childrens father did. I practically watched her children grow you stupid bitch, so yeah its upsetting that they are being separated from their mother! and no one threatened you, you fucking ugly mammoth. I simply stated if you need help closing your mouth to let me know, I’d gladly assist. See no threats there. Did I in anyway state to cause harm in a violent manner? Nope I didn’t.. see asshole not everyone is a stupid as you, I read the laws. I have a freedom of speech. you can screen shot all you want. As a matter of fact I can screen shot it for you if you want. What kind of person laughs at another’s demise ? I know what kind of person, A PIECE OF SHIT, with sharpied eyebrows and a mustache. This woman has been trying to get out of her situation for quite some time, unfortunately, she had no family. AND OUR GOVERNMENT RATHER HELP FUCKING LOSERS THAT DO NOT WANT TO WORK RATHER THAN HELPING PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY TRYING TO DO SOMETHING WITH THEIR LIFE. Great you were born and raised here!! Congrats ! But question is how much do you receive in foodstamps a month? Do you even have an occupation, education? This woman WORKED and was attending college so she can escape what ever bullshit she was stuck in. YOU ARE NOT PERFECT LADY SO STOP ACTING LIKE YOU WALK EVERY DAY IN GODS FOOTSTEPS!

    • I KNOW NONE OF THAT SHIT BELONGED TO HER ! SHE JUST LIVED THERE BECAUSE SHE HAD NO WHERE ELSE TO FUCKING GO! WELFARE WOULD NOT HELP HER, HER FATHER AND MOTHER IS DEAD, SHE LITERALLY HAD NO FAMILY.. SHE HAS NO PRIOR RECORD!!! NOT EVEN JUVENILE, THE GIRL HAS NEVER BEEN ARRESTED IN HER LIFE!

  1. damn man !!! Brittney Collins this shit is real :(… dammit I feel sorry for the kids!!! I love Jessica 🙁 and her babies! I need to find out what happened to the children asap. Thank you Brit for tagging me in this!

  2. I’m sorry I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR HER, her kids definitely. If she REALLY LOVED HER KIDS she wouldn’t put herself in this situation.

    That she had shitty parents is no excuse on the contrary should’ve been enough for her to be a better parent and the fact that she went to college makes no difference just proves that you don’t have to be college educated or partially educated to make stupid decisions.

  3. Baba is a good dude. A good father regardless of the guns being there. It was strictly for protection. Thats one of my best friends. Got me off pain killers. Helped me out for a rent deposit. Legalize it already

  4. Thank god for the cops getting these scum off the streets. hopefully they can keep them away so they can’t harm our community any longer…

  5. You should remove the pics of his kids, no one needs to know what their kids look like, and fkn stop already, okay we know already you know him hoopty fkn dooo. STOP PUTTIN A NIGGAS BUSINESS OUT THERE!
