Via CBS: A mother is accused of providing alcohol to young teens at a party in Missouri and offering $10 to whomever could chug a glass of vodka the fastest.

Two girls were hospitalized.

Authorities in Kansas City say 43-year-old Karen Christine Downs (right) and 25-year-old Kelsee Guest face felony child-endangerment charges alleging they provided liquor and beer to six 13- and 14-year-olds at a February birthday party for Downs' daughter...

Authorities say girls at the party told officers Downs offered them shots and told them not to tell their parents.

While Downs allegedly offered money to the faster drinker, Guest is accused of pouring vodka shots.

  What is the matter with people these days?  It's hard enough to educate young people about the danger of alcohol, without providing it and pouring it for them.  Alcohol poisoning can kill.

This adult woman had the intelligence to know she was endangering these minors. She knew. And she chose to endanger them. She didn't "just" provide them with alcohol, she challenged them and bribed them to drink as fast as they could.

I think the article mentioned that she wanted to be popular or accepted.
