Mommy Dearest


Mary Cooke called police to report a speeding driver had almost hit her outside her Newcastle-under-Lyme, England, home. A police woman came to her home and took a report. A few days later, Cooke, who is pregnant, got a letter from social services. The officer had reported her as a potentially unfit mother because of the condition her house was in. Cooke was in the process of redecorating her home and had stripped the floors and walls.
