Yesterday’s post featured a contender for worst dad of the year, today a top contender for worst mom of the year gives him a run for the money.
According to Jezebel, Susan Becker, 43, was arrested last week for driving her kids around while they shot at other cars with a BB gun.
According to police, Becker allegedly bought the gun for her 15-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son then drove the kids and a friend around so they could shoot out an estimated sixty car windows in the Long Island area.
Becker has no record and a neighbor tells NBC she was shocked to learn of the charges. Not only that but the neighbor described Becker as a “great mom” and a “great neighbor.”
“She’s always there to help everybody,” Morelli said of Becker. “This doesn’t seem real. She’s just such a good person.”
This is what happens when you get caught up in trying to be the cool parent. And probably also when you’re suffering from some kind of mental illness? I can’t imagine this behavior is solely because Becker was trying to be cool but, well, stranger things have happened.
