Reader: Wouldn't you rather let a mom buy her kid booze & pot than some dirty old man?

Jonathan Shikes's most recent Shmuck of the Week post highlighted Michelle Manzanares, accused of giving her teen daughter booze and weed -- gifts allegedly commemorated in photos and video. One reader had unkind words for such parenting, but the following commenter offered a different point of view.

Besides, who else is gonna by it for them?

This way they aren't out there asking dirty old homeless men to take their money, they can get comfortable in the comfort of own home and wait for their caring guardian to bring the booze right to the aforementioned safety zone.

Unless you are pro-dirty old homeless man buying young girls alcohol, which it kind of sounds like you are.
