Mom takes 6-year-old on crack run, police say


Looks like somebody needs to read "The Night of the Gun," the memoir by New York Times reporter David Carr that covers his transition from crackhead to responsible parent.

Lansdowne police say Alexia Patrick, 43, took her 6-year-old son on a trip to buy crack at 3:45 a.m. Wednesday. Her husband, John, allegedly wasted, was behind the wheel, according to Delco Times reporter Linda Reilly. Kid was in the back. No seat belt, by the way.

They face a slew of charges. Hopefully, someone can step in and save this boy and/or get these "adults" the help they need.
