    Default Black Delivers Herion to Son at School

    Mom Accused Of Delivering Heroin To Son At School
    41-Year-Old Arrested In Ferndale High School Parking Lot

    POSTED: 10:27 am EST February 3, 2005

    A mother was arrested at a Ferndale school for allegedly delivering a syringe full of heroin to her son.

    Sheila Black, 41, of Metamora, was arrested in the parking lot of Ferndale High School on Pinecrest Street Tuesday during the school's lunch hour, according to a report in The Daily Tribune. Police said they set up surveillance of Black after they received a tip that she was planning to give the heroin to her son.

    "She took one of the packs of heroin and cooked it up in a spoon and drew the liquid into a syringe so he could take it into a bathroom at school and shoot it up," said Ferndale police Detective George Hartley in the paper's report.

    The teen, whose age was not available, lives with his father in Ferndale, the paper reported. Black has been remarried and there is a court order from Lapeer County barring her from having contact with her son, according to police.

    Officers were able to arrest Black in front of the school before she was able to give the drugs to her son because she was in violation of the court order, the paper reported.

    Hartley said officers searched Black's Ford pickup truck and found a cosmetic bag with 10 packs of heroin and a loaded syringe.

    Black told police she talked to her son over the weekend and agreed to obtain heroin after he threatened to harm himself if he did not get the drugs, the paper reported.

    Hartley said the son told his mother to drive to Detroit to purchase the heroin, and she complied.

    Black was charged Wednesday with possession of less than 50 grams of heroin with intent to deliver, the paper reported. A $5,000 cash bond was issued during the arraignment.

    A pretrial report says Black has mental health and substance abuse problems and should be counseled while awaiting the trial, the paper reported. Police said Black has no criminal record.

    Black is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 10.

    What does skin color have to do with Sheila's last name? Just let the hypersensitivity go. Breathe out, exhale.. ahhhhhh now breathe in pure thoughts of a world with no hypersensitivity. Doesn't that feel nice. Try it again.......

    Very true, race has NOTHING to do with this story, but out of curiousity, if that's the case, why did you change the title to that, instead of using the article's actual title:
    Mom Accused Of Delivering Heroin To Son At School?

    That would have avoided any confusion.

    Too long. The confusion was limited to one post. Did the title confuse you Greenpaw? If your name was 'Blackpaw' would I have the right to ask you questions regarding your race?

    I was referring to the thread title. This woman is not a well-known person to the point where everyone knows who you're talking about her as "Black", like you might refer to the president as "Bush". Greenpaw asked the same question as what I was going to.

    Let me ask you now, after some repetition and just a few minutes of discussion. If I asked you, without your notes, the last name of the woman who brought herion to her son in school; at this point, would you remember her last name? If so, NOW she's famous!

    FH, one thing you must realize about the news is that it is designed to get your attention. I did shorten the title to make it fit, but used her name - one letter more than the generic 'Mom'.

    News is supposed to stir up your awareness and get you focused in order to draw an audience. There have been so many 'Mom' stories, I thought I would just use her name and see if the hyper puppies get all bent, as there is no mention of her skin color. She could be green, like Greenpaw for all we know.

    No big deal. I try to tell myself I'll never try to be the grammar(or whatever) police and here I find myself doing something equally annoying.

    Newspaper articles are never titled with anybody's last name unless that person is famous.

    Why didn't you put in "Sheila" instead of "Black?" Or why didn't you put "Sheila Black?"

    Not even taking it to a racist level...

    Why would you put in a totally unknown person's first or surname in a thread title?

    I'm not a reporter. I thought of Sheila, but I just kept thinking of Tone Loc singing, '..Shiela was a man..' and it killed my mood.

    If her name would have been Sheila White, and the title was 'White Delievers Herion..' would you have been thinking of skin color? I would just open the story immediately to see what it was all about. Controversy sells copy, and though I'm not a journalist, it sure must have gotten some attention if there is this sort of interest.

    No, I wouldn't of thought of skin color. I'd a thought the same thing as before.

    "Why would anybody title a thread with the name of an unknown person?"

    BTW, did you know the Terrance Willard was using drugs in the back of the cafeteria today?
