horrific

Plano is all of 1 minute away from me here in Addison.  I just can't fathom how something like this happens.  As far as we've come there's so little we know about the human brain.  sigh.

I can't even imagine this happening.  And I truly feel for the husband who has two girls to raise, a baby to bury and a wife who is apparently insane.

It makes you wonder why people are against forced sterialization.

I'm sorry, but to just dismiss this as post partum depression is ridiculous.  I'm not saying that she didn't have it, but she obviously had other more serious mental problems.  Post Partum may have catalyzed it, but it doesn't explain away insanity of that level.

And might I add that this is REALLY fucked up.  I can't get it out of my head, it's really disturbing me

That's exactly what I thought as well.  PPD may have been one of her problems, but you have to be completely batshit insane to do something this horrific.

This makes me physically ill. I can't help but think about an eye-for-an-eye punishment in this case. I know that thought is horrible, but I can't help it.

Here's what scares me:
Quote
Child-protective officials were interviewing Schlosser's daughters and would talk to the father before deciding whether to remove the girls from the home.

Is there really a question about whether they should be removed from the home?  Hello?

And I agree.  More was going on here than just post-partum depression.  If that were the case this sort of thing would be happening almost daily.

Why are so many of these taking place in Texas? Is it the water or an X-Files like experiment?

This one...its very hard to read about, hear about, know about.  As a parent...hearing the details of it just goes against every single part of my consciousness.  My brain was screaming at me that it was wrong, that something was wrong.  That I was reading it wrong, or heard it wrong.

I cant imagine what the responding authorities felt at the actual scene.  I am surprised no one killed her.  Whatever punishment she gets, it wont be enough.

As the father of a 10 month old, this one really hurt bad. I can't even imagine doing this to such an innocent child. This is just so truly fucked up.

Ditto.  I have a 3 month old and could not imagine having that happen to her.  How anyone can hurt their child is beyond me.

I saw the link for this on CNN this morning, and opted not to read it. The world is too depressing as it is.

Sad that little girl didn't get her chance at life.

Ugh.  That story makes me sick.   It also makes me sick how some people in this world who would make great parents can't have kids, while crazies like this lady have them only to kill them later.

Actually, I think an eye for an eye would be a good place to start when sentencing this nutbag.

What really kills me is that since she's obviously nuts, she's going to get treatment, and the get off.  Let's cut her arms off, put her through shock therapy, perhaps a lobotomy, and then send her on her way.

Actually, now that I think about it, that might be a good way to discourage using the insanity defense for people that clearly aren't really nuts.  You plead insanity, and you get it, then fine, have a lobotomy too.

I work in the Trauma ICU at the children's hospital in Dallas.   And last night after we heard about this, we just *knew* this kid would be coming to us.  I have to admit, that as awful as it sounds, Im glad I didnt have to see her(she died before she made it down to our hospital).  I really dont think that wouldve been something I wouldve handled well.

Of course I also think it's good she's in a better place, b/c what kind of awful life would it be living w/o your arms and with the knowledge that your mother, of all ppl, made you that way?

OMG OMG OMG.  This is really horrific.  God rest the child's soul.  I can't speak the mother.  This is just the true meaning of "insane".   Wow.

Horrible tragedy, no doubt.  One thing that hasn't been mentioned is this quote:

"No one answered the door Monday night at the family's apartment in suburban Dallas"

I can't believe that a reporter would have the balls to go try to get a comment from the poor father on the same day that this happened! WTF?

Sometimes extended family, or friends, are around to help out and they often give statements on behalf of the families....I dunno, maybe the reporter was hoping for that?

There's not much I can say about this case.  I'm reminded of babies left to bake to death out in cars on hot days, that seems to be just as horrible a way to die, yet those parents usually claim it was an accident and never do jail time.  This parent admits to intentionally killing the kid, but is going to claim some kind of mental excuse(not accidental), which probably won't fly. Something is wrong in all this, at least in my eyes.
