This murder case in Texas still gives me nightmares

After I read articles like this one, I get physically ill.

Doctor: Suspect Unaware Killing Baby Wrong

She cut off her baby's arms! The baby laid in her crib, crying and dying, unable to wipe away her tears or her litttle nose or the blood. And this woman didn't think it was wrong!

This particular case has haunted me since last year. This is the reason I get sick if I am stupid enough to yell at or smack Dink. This case is why I clutch my head and stomach when I think about child abuse.

For f*ck's sake, what's wrong with this world?

She was just a little baby ...

This kind of thing never amazes me any more.

Sad, but true.

I just don't know what's up with the world any more.

It's why I believe passionately in the existence of Evil and in an afterlife -- specifically, Satan and Hell.

He'll be toasting her with a long fork, eventually.

there's enough blame here to go around, including that pastor who said "only god can cure mental illness".
the whole thing is just sad...and infuriating.

I get ill every time I think about it ... where are the families in all this! Like that woman who threw her kids to the sharks in California a few months ago. If you are on medication and you have kids ... argh! Excuse me while I go hug my children. I know that my parents would snatch away the kids if they though for a second that something was not quite right.

I can't read that.. just from what I read in your post horrified me.

So sad.

Pig and Taz, CP, Snicks, MDM, Laurie, and Spikey:

This case is beyond horrible. I hear this baby's scream in my head everyday. I can see her crying for help from the mother who is mutilating her. It brings me to tears.every.time.I.remember. What comfort did that child have?

It would make me feel better knowing that woman can not get an ounce of sleep with the nightmares I have over what she did to her own flesh and blood.

I only pray that little Maggie's spirit is now at peace.

this post and the article just made my stomach clench and gave me chills. That poor little baby. And I hate to say it, but the poor mom.
She probably was suffering some psychosis arising from post partum brain fuck. No mother in her right mind could do something so horrific could she? I'm sickened and sad.

I can only feel sorry for the mom for so long. Then I picture the scene in my head. I swear, this thing haunts me every.blessed.day.
