  1. She is not a teen. She’s a adult and this is absolutely insanely unacceptable to allow this girl out on the street even to go home after what she is done. And not only to this young lady that she took her life. But she has overdosed many others selling drugs to teenagers as an adult. She definitely deserves every ounce of time. That is possible to give her a chance to maybe think things through and realize what she’s done is unacceptable, but I mean you can never change evil
