Mother Eats Her Infant Baby




I'm sure most of you know about the San Antonio, TX mother who recently decapitated her newborn baby, and ate its brain and other pieces of his body.

The reason I bring this out is that I visited a LJ Community, and one woman stated that the mother wasn't insane, and should be given the death penalty.

Below you'll find the Youtube Video. I already have my views on the horrific matter and will share them with you.

I would like your thoughts about her being insane or not.

1. Yes, she was insane. Please explain.

2. No, she wasn't insane. Yes, death penalty. Please explain.

She is fucked up.
I am anti-death penalty though.

She'll probably eat her roommate in jail.

I think she is, or at least was, insane. She was off her meds, killed, mutilated, and cannibalized her new born baby, and claims satan made her do it.

I think the worse punishment would involve letting her live with life in prison.

I also think so, but I believe she should be placed, for the rest of her life, in a mental institution for the criminaly insane.

not sure how dismembering and eating one's baby at the request of one's imaginary friends is even slightly sane.

I think they should put insane people to death, just like normal people. She should be hanged... insane or not.

I usually agree with you, but this time, I don't agree with you Sweet Pie. The woman is as insane as can be.

It's ok... I still love you. Even if you are wrong. *sticks my tongue out and gives you a rassberry* :P *just kidding*

Seriously... a lady like that needs help and should never see the light of day again. I really don't like the entire not guilty by reason of insanity thing either.

Insane,so horrible an act to commit, totally mad.
She needs to be removed from the civilized world for the rest of her life.

Yes, she should be locked up in an insanasylum for the rest of her life.

Speaking from a law enforcement perspective, the "imaginary friend" plea has been used to death. "Oh, I would NEVER do those things!! My imaginary friends told me to do it, so I did!"

It's a common defense to avoid getting the death penalty, which I believe this fucked up lady deserves. Life in prison, or even a mental institution, places a burden on the taxpayers (the medical care for a single inmate ALONE is astronomical) that we honestly can't afford.

Bottom line: she killed and ATE her baby. Jeffrey Dahmer killed and ate people and they locked his ass away, then an inmate aced him. This chick should ride the lightning like they used to years ago. ANYBODY that can do that to a defenseless child deserves to die. Painfully and horribly.

imaginary demon ...
I realize many criminals excuse themselves by blaming an imaginary demon in order to save their hide, but I honestly believe Jeffrey Dahmer was insane. I believe the same for this woman who committed such horrendous acts on her baby. Under no circumstances do I believe in the death penalty, not because of concern for the criminal, but because there have been too many cases where innocent me have been executed, only to later be found innocent. This is just one example that one of my Ex-LJ pals enlightened me of. The case of the ASSHOLE Roland Burris who Sought Death Penalty for Innocent Man

I respectfully ask this question of you. I’m assuming you believe Dalmer, and this woman were both sane when they committed the atrocities they did. What grotesque act must a person do for you personally to agree that that person was insane?

Re: imaginary demon ...
In my personal opinion there is truly nothing a person can do that will convince me that they are insane. My definition of "insanity" is rather limited and narrow compared to most, I will admit that. Dahmer? Completely sane. Ed Gein, the inspiration for the Psycho movies...sane. Severely devoid of anything remotely resembling a conscience? Yes. Insane? No.

In my mind, premeditation is a condition of sanity.....hence why I think Dahmer and this sick lady are completely sane. 98% of the criminals in history were completely sane, in my opinion. If a person goes to lengths to either perform the crime or hide it after the fact, they're sane.

Thank you for answering my question. I really wanted to know what your thoughts insane and sane were. :o)

IANAL and it is probably different from state to state, however the actual defensce is that one did not know what they were doing was wrong due to insanity. To be guilty of a crime, one has to be aware they are committing it or some such. So if she knew it was wrong and she did it anyway because even though the devil was in the room telling her to do so, she's still guilty. If she wasn't aware of what she was doing, then she could use the insanity defense (and still probably be locked up for a long time).

Personally speaking, if they are insane enough to do something like this, technically guilty or not, they should be removed from society. While I shed no tears for some demented killer getting killed, I am generally against the death penatly. It proves to be wrong too often, and even judges and juries too swayed by various items and not capable of being right all the time.

horror of horrors ...
I feel the same as you do about the death penalty.

There are no if's or what's about it; this woman is raving mad, and should be placed in a place for the mentally insane - forever. I only hope she never becomes sane again, because she'll go raving mad if she comes to understand the horror of horrors she did to her baby.

Being that it was stated in the video that she had some self-inflicted wounds, I would say insane, definitely. Although I would also argue that insanity is often used as a plea to get OUT of the death penalty. Just the same, I think the death penalty is out of the question.

what is?
I believe I also read somewhere that she had been in and out of mental institutions. I believe what she did came from an insane woman. I've asked myself, if what she did isn't considered insane, then what is?

Re: disgusting
If there's a heaven, and I believe there is, that poor little baby is now in the kingdom of glory with the Lord. I only hope and pray that he died instantly, before she did what she did to his little body.

You're right, it is worse than Hannibel Lector, or any other horror movie in existance.

A sane woman uses ...
I believe I read somewhere that her husband had left her. I'm sure he realized how sick and dangerous she was. If I were to place the blame on anyone, he'd be the one. He should have taken the baby with him. Also, she had a mother, and sisters, who I'm sure saw hints of her mental state. The mental institution, or whatever you call it, knew how dangerous she could be. I place the blame on all of them for the death of the baby.

I believe this woman's body is healthy, but her mind is sick. I don't understand how we could kill a sick person like she obvioulsy is, because there's no way a sane person can do what she did to that baby. A sane woman uses other methods to kill them, such as drowning, or doing as that woman who drove her car into a lake killing her two little boys.

Yes, society would benefit from just killing her, but that's the easy way out for us, which as a God fearing country, is unacceptable. Anyway, the woman is already dead; she's living in another world, and I feel she'll never come back to reality.

I pity her should she ever regain her sanity. If she should, and I seriously doubt it, and starts recalling what she did, she'll return into her madness forever.

Insane is a legal term, not a medical term, that deals with social norms. And she clearly acts outside social norms. So, I go with insane.

Yes she was insane. Yes she should be locked up forever and possibly death penalty.

Otherwise we learn that we aren't responsible even if we do horrible things. Otherwise we learn that some people can get away with murder by doing a good job of acting.

what in the world ...
Those who try to fool the jury that they're insane, are never fooled by them. A sane person could never do what this woman did to her baby. If her actions weren't insane, then what in the world is insane.
