The Fact That No One Comforted This 2 Year Old Girl Whose Junkie Mom Overdosed In Lawrence Family Dollar Is Everything That Is Wrong With America

WBZA heartbreaking video of a mother lying unconscious on a store floor while her little girl tried to revive her has led to criminal charges. The video obtained by Lawrence Police shows a crying 2-year-old girl trying to wake up her mom after the woman collapsed from an apparent drug overdose in an aisle of a Family Dollar store in Lawrence Sunday morning. A clerk called 911 and paramedics arrived a short time later. They revived the woman with Narcan, which is used to reverse opiate overdoses.

Police told WBZ-TV they are not releasing the woman’s name at this point in the investigation. She is 36 years old and lives in Salem, New Hampshire. She will be charged with child endangerment. Investigators said they do not have enough evidence to charge her with any drug-related violations. Lawrence police say the incident shows the darkest side of drug addiction that officers have seen. “It’s very disturbing to see someone like this. It’s obvious addiction has overtaken them, to the point of not being able to care for their child,” said Chief James Fitzpatrick. In a nearby diaper bag police found baggies and straws with residue from either fentanyl or heroin they say the woman likely inhaled.

A woman is passed out in the middle of a Family Dollar, no one speaks English, but everyone’s got an iPhone. Welcome to Lawrence, Massachusetts.

That video is heartbreaking to watch. Poor freaking kid, born into this shit. Probably not the first time she’s seen this happen. It will be almost impossible for her not to become another statistic. The odds are so stacked against her as it is.

And what the hell is wrong with the people filming this? I understand that they’re not doctors and I certainly don’t blame them for trying to save this addict’s life. But they couldn’t help comfort the two year old girl? I couldn’t even watch that for more than five seconds without feeling sick to my stomach. How hard is it to pick the girl up and get her out of there instead of having her stand there poking her mother like she’s Goddamn Moofasa.

Anyway, people are all fired up about this. Let’s check out a couple dumb comments on the Facebook machine:


First of all, I’m glad the media outlets are covering it. Heroin ain’t pretty. This is the shit people need to see. If it saves one person from injecting that poison then it’s worthwhile. As for the lack of concern over the passed out junkie mom being recorded without her permission, is this chick for real? You want her corpse to sign a waiver? Don’t wanna be filmed and put on the news? Don’t pass out from a heroin overdose in the middle of a Family Dollar. If she was having a heart attack, seizure, or a diabetic episode then absolutely people should’ve helped her. But what did you want these people to do? Give her nasty ass CPR? Who knows where she’s been.


Shaming people? Fuck her, she should be shamed. She’s a disgrace. Why would anyone be concerned about the feelings of a deadbeat loser who cares more about getting high than she does about her own children? Oh wait, I forgot, you can’t shit on drug addicts because it’s a disease. Like cancer. Except they choose to start this addiction at some point. Lots of people choose to have cancer too. Definitely the same thing.

Oh yea, and all these people whining about WBZ posting this video all watched it. They all partook in it. They commented on the Facebook page, and thus it showed up in all of their friend’s feeds. People like these whining losers are the reason that WBZ posts videos like this. If you watched it then you’re just part of the mob too. Get over yourselves.

    What’s funny is Turtleboy used to comment how they only liked winners and had winners in their comment section and then a couple months ago fiesty and company showed up with their leader Kevin Lynch and the entire comment section went down hill. I wish these aholes would go find some other blog to ruin.

      Don’t you blame any of this on Fiesty. She was not the problem. The people here are not aware of what was happening on Facebook. You’re lucky she’s willing to take the high road and not discuss it on this blog.

      I will tell you one thing BobnMic as well as ProfessorM were luring her on Facebook. Yeah, you read that correctly. I’m sure some of you are familiar with ProfessorM and how she always stuck up for Fiesty and ragged on BobnMic. Turns out I helped Fiesty by doing some research once she brought this to my attention over 1 month ago. That’s right Mrs MG, she knew of your lies that long ago and attempted to wait and see if you would tell her the truth. I couldn’t even believe it myself. They attempted to lure her and her precious child out on play dates. ProfessorM lured her friendship by talking about something that is sentimental to Fiesty’s heart, and gained her trust. Thankfully, Fiesty is smart and never gave her personal information beyond work experience and video chatting with this junkie woman.

      Neither of Bible or Professor have posted since this discovery was made, and If they do, they will regret it. Nothing will be discussed on this blog nor will you ever see Fiesty write about it. This time, it will be taken to the authorities, as she has saved all proper information. They both will be risking their careers if they attempt to ever contact her again in any form. I will personally assure you that.

      Of course, I will be accused of being Fiesty, and whoever is in charge of this blog, please check IP and know that I am not her, but a long them friend, coworker, amongst other things.

      That’s all I’m going to say about this atrocious behavior by two adults to attempt to cause harm to someone, and possibily her child, over a stupid blog comment made 6 months ago.

      All you people are the same, coming back and making comments under different names will do nothing but make this situation worse, for you. If half of you knew how psychotic Bob and Professor are, none of you would even talk to them.

      Don’t fuck with family. Especially when my family has done more good for this country than you ever could.

        I don’t really care at this point. I’m too old for this high school drama Internet shit. People keep talking about it, and it will never stop. I have too much going on right now to entertain people. I’m too busy this time of year. No time to argue with people who hold no weight in my personal life.

        I come here to comment, and laugh. Everything else doesn’t matter. Wish it would all go away. Been saying this for months now.

        Just let it go… both people are useless to me and will never be anything more than a very distant pencil dot of a memory. Not going to talk about it after this. I’m over it.

          This is a perfect example of why everyone wishes you would just go away. NOBODY gives a fuck about your doctors appointments, your husband and kids, what you had for breakfast, Bobs vacations, ProfessorM’s High School stoner adventures. Just post something pertaining to the subject or shut the fuck up. Anyways I’m happy all went well for your dog at the veteranar…………..WAIT A MINUTE!!!! NOBODY GIVES A FUCK!about you and your personal life. Please save it for Facebook, I’m sure you have over 500 imaginary internet friends there who might pretend to give a shit.

            Makes sense. Tell me more…but don’t. I guess you failed to see where I have been trying to stay on topic for months, but get stalked to no end for days at a time lol.

            Yet, you’re attacking me and NOT the people who did it… HMMMMMMMMMMMM YUP. OKAY.

        What the fuck of all what the fucks is this insane bullshit may I ask? I take a few days off from here, come back and read threats toward me? Fuck ProfessorM – she’s an idiot and another fraud. Hey “Playing with Fire!” Bring it fucking on you fucking little coward. You are a bag of bullshit and you know it. And if you think my time away from here was to duck and hide from the likes of you and your asshole gal pal Fiesty, you are immensely mistaken. She does not intimidate me – never has and never will. You don’t intimidate me as well so I say fuck you two and your idiotic SJW’s agenda attempting to silence someone with an opinion. It’ll never work so give it up already! GIVE IT UP!

        You both a classic liberal fuckups. Actually all three of you. Where did you freaks come from anyway? Where ever that is please by all means go back there. If you did that you’d make a lot of people here in TB Nation very happy…

    I’m a recovering addict and that’s real life.. I wouldn’t touch that kid bc some clown or maybe even the mother would accuse me of kidnapping..and secondly that mother should see this video.. maybe she’ll wake the fuck up now.. I don’t wanna hear well she caught in the grips.. no.. she like many addicts as I was is just thinking of herself.. the epidemic is so far spread there’s no way she hasn’t heard of treatment.. therefore she’s a selfish person who cares only for herself or else she would’ve done something knowing she has a child.. bottom line she’s done nothing bc 1..she believes she doesn’t have a problem or 2.. she still wants to get high

    This is what junkies do … Shock factor is gone regarding random ODs. Hopefully the little girl is with more responsible family members or a nice foster home now so she doesn’t have to be a victim of her mother’s fucking selfishness anymore!

    What i have a problem with are the fucking pieces of shit standing around recording this. NOT ONE of those flea bag shoppers had an ounce of kindness to comfort that little girl and move her away from the scene …

    My god this is horrendous to watch but an absolute necessity. There is a serious drug epidemic in our country and this video would be a perfect government PSA. To the person who filmed this: What the fuck is wrong with you? Put your fucking phone down once in your life and help the child. Turtleboy this may the most important story you have written to date.

    September 22, 2016 at 6:34 am

    The solution is so obvious and simple I’m surprised I’m the only one who can see it. Narcan training and a day care certificate program certificate program should be part of the general curriculum starting at the age of 2. This 2 yr. old wouldn’t have panicked and could have administered some Narcan to her mom while the rest of the stores patrons put on a puppet show for her.. Failure to not be carrying Narcan and emergency kindergarten props at all times should be punishable with jail time. You never know when your fellow citizen could slip into a drug induced coma and it’s up to us to be prepared.

  • whatevuh
    September 22, 2016 at 6:33 am

    How did anyone know it was an overdose in the first place? I’m sure I wouldn’t know what happened if I came across a person laying in the isle of a store. I agree someone should have helped though . . .

      • anonon
        September 22, 2016 at 9:47 pm

        People probably didn’t know at the time, but later she was revived by Narcan and had drug residue and paraphernalia (in the diaper bag!). So, signs point to OD.

    TB, I wish no harm on you or your family but you need a wake up call and until this drug epidemic hits home for you, it’s unlikely to happen. You are the problem, shaming addicts because it really is a disease. I wish you had to pass a test to write a blog because spreading this misinformation is affecting people. You don’t have a huge audience but it’s still enough that you should be more informed before writing this crap. You should feel somewhat responsible. Unfortunately it’s a cycle….you learned it from your uninformed hate filled parents and will likely pass it down to your children. And so it never ends, there’s always a**holes.

      Junkies are the problem, not normal people calling them out for being a junkie. Junkies make they’re own choices, they choose to shoot up, they choose to rob their families, they choose to die. There are too many people on this planet as it is, the more junkies that die the better. Then I can get to work a little faster in the morning and maybe there will still be some water left for me to water my plants.

      Maybe this junkie will see this video and hit her own personal “rock bottom”. Before all this PC crap and calling addiction a disease, shame used to be a very useful emotion that would help curb bad behavior. You can shame them, ignore them, or enable them. The last two choices don’t do anything for the addict, but they sure are easy to do and only help the ignorers and enablers feel better about themselves.

      It is NOT A DISEASE, it’s an addiction that the person chose to start >>> a disease isn’t a choice, like cancer, doing heroin is a conscious choice.

      “You are the problem, shaming addicts ” ?! They out to be shamed…and ashamed!

      It is NOT a disease – the FLU is a disease. Maybe there is a biological, spiritual and/or mental component to how some people get “hooked” and others don’t, and I don’t (unlike YOU) wish for anyone to be an addict.

      Normalizing abnormal behavior NEVER lessens it. How is telling addicts it is ok and not their fault going to lessen addiction rates? Is that also going to help the children whose parents OD, or abuse and neglect them, or trade them to deviants in exchange for drugs? GET REAL.

  • Wa_ WHAT
    September 21, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    The mostfucked up part of this isnt that no one comforted the child, it’s that people left the mother to die Infront of the child. No one attempting to wake her up other than a fucking 2 year old. That’s what Is wrong with society. ” Hey how did your mom die?” “Oh she OD and people just filmed her death”. How horrible is that for the child. I mean what if it wasn’t an OD and people filmed her death. also Just curious but why don’t you seem to care as much about drunks? There’s plenty of stories you could do shaming them too. Spread the love.

      Not everyone carries Narcan on them everywhere they go. No one was trying to wake her up other than the two year old because they’re smart enough to know you can’t just wake someone up who has overdosed. They called 911. There’s not much else they could have done for that woman. The video was like two minutes long. You don’t know what they did before or after recording it. Maybe they tried to comfort the child but she freaked out because they’re strangers

        People have to be pretty hard-edged to not try to help that baby. Then again, sadly, that seems to be where society is or is going now.

        Side note – this is the type of scene that gets left out when people talk about legalizing drugs…no one seems to think of the children of druggies, left to rot while their parents chase their habit.

    I feel so bad for the little girl. I can’t imagine what is going through her mind. Although, too young to understand the true reason her mom is on the floor, she is old enough to know something is wrong. How did she get to Family Dollar? Probably driving high with this poor child in the car. Some people do not deserve to have children… If the joy of having a child, hearing her laugh, hearing her funny jokes and seeing her beautiful smile isn’t enough for this mother to do the right thing, than she deserves to be on that floor. Of course, I’m not wishing death on someone but having this go viral will help the child in the long run. She will be taken away from her deadbeat mother. The problem is, where is she going to be placed? The foster care system is pure shit… I hope she has some family members who are willing to raise her with true love, guidance, and support.
