This is very disturbing

This morning I read the story about the mom dismembering her 3 1/2 week old. I just found out through another article that the day before she killed him the police were phoned because she sped off from the baby's grandmother's house without buckling him in. The police only cited the incident as a disturbance. My husband thinks there was nothing more the officer could do, but I say there is. Maybe if something had been done that innocent baby would still be alive. What do you think? Here is the link to the article:

  • yea i just read the article from another site and was on my way to post about it.... it made me cry... what kinda person does something like that... she is def. crazy, but i don't think its fair after what she did, she gets to sit comfy in a wack house... no justice for the child...

    why wasnt s.s. involved when the child was born... the family said she had been in and out of wack houses and wasnt right in the head.... WELL IF THAT ISNT A RED FLAG, WHAT THE HE*L IS?!?!

    as for the police, they could only do so much... i think they should have arrested her for child endangerment, then maybe they would have seen how wacked she was....

    poor little baby :(...

  • There was nothing else they could do. It's not a jailable offense. Driving with your child unbuckled is stupid but does'nt show you are a lunatic who will kill and cut up your baby.

  • Nothing else they could do. They did not know this disgusting person would do this to her child. Hope she rots in prison or gets shanked.

  • Great, another woman for people to compare us PPD-suffering moms to.


    Ugh. People like her make me sick.

  • Dismembering your baby isn't PPD. That sounds more like Post Partum Psychosis. I'm so sorry she didn't get the help she obviously needed and I'm horrified that the poor baby had to suffer for it.
