Humans Are Supposedly Superior To Animals?

Here are few recent articles that show how inhuman some people can be.

Baby Cut From Murdered Mother's Womb Found

Darlene Haynes, 23, was eight months pregnant when she was found Monday mutilated in a closet in her Massachusetts apartment. She had been wrapped in a comforter, and her unborn daughter, whom family said she planned to name Sheila Marie, had been cut out and taken.

Haynes had been dead for several days when her decomposing body was found by her landlord, William Thompson, who was responding to a report of a bad odor coming from inside. The body was so mutilated that police said they couldn't immediately determine her gender.


What the heck is wrong with people? This is not the first case of a pregnant woman being killed for the baby, and I am sure it will not be the last. Would you sit back and think about this for a moment. Think of this woman, 8 months pregnant confronted with two people who wanted her baby. Slash goes the knife cutting into her. The pain would be unbelievable. My baby....I must protect my baby! Or maybe they bludgeoned her to death, then cut out the baby. Smack goes the hammer to her head, but don't kill her until the baby is out or it may die. Don't shut off the images, it's the cowards way out. Imagine how Darlene Haynes died. No matter how you picture her death, it is violent.

See that person sitting next to you, so full of life? Imagine a blunt object hitting them on the head, or a knife slashing into their stomach. This was a human being who was brutally killed, all her hopes for the future died with her. We cry about the seals being killed, but are silent about the human beings, who had lives and futures, who are now lost to us.

If that doesn't sicken you enough, how about this one:

Court Records: Starved Texas Children Were in `Living Nightmare'

Inside the bathroom, the children said, they would go days without eating. Their mother said she gave them breakfast and dinner, though she was aware her boyfriend would not feed them while she was at work. She sneaked them food when she could, Abneris Santiago said, but "risked a beating" every time.

The children hid scraps of food in shampoo bottles, their pockets and "anywhere else they could hide it, not knowing when they might get to eat again," a CPS report said. Such behavior continued even after their rescue. The children were hospitalized for 10 days, "requiring constant supervision due to food hoarding," the report said.

The examining doctor said the children were of average height but in the bottom fifth percentile for weight. Their cheeks and eyes were hollow and sunken, their skin was flaky and they emitted a repugnant odor.

The report described Abneris Santiago as medically obese. During an interview with CPS officials, she repeatedly said she was hungry but that she was so upset she had been unable to eat for two days.


The kids are starving but the Mom is obese? The Mom didn't know that her daughter was being sexually abused? I suspect that the Mom was just happy to have a "man" who was interested in her, and pretended not to see what was happening to her own children. She certainly knew that the 3 of them were being kept in the bathroom. Sick and sad.

And humans are supposedly superior to animals? HA!

Humans ARE animals Huntsy, lest you forget.

East of Eden said...

As for the abusers of children (and other vulnerable people), I think I've made my sentiments very clear in previous posts.

mystereeoso said...

Huntsy, you might be paying too much attention to FAUX.COM

Eskimo said...

And you, mysterymeat, are paying too much attention to Hunter. Get a life.

mystereeoso said...

This one is for you Eskimo!

Eskimo said...

In addition to his obsession with Hunter and YouTube, I think its safe to assume that mysterymeat also stays up all night playing X-Box.

He's probably a habitual nose picker too.

mahmood said...

Clearly this mystereeso character's elevator is stuck between floors...a "3:21:00 am" posting? and more inane/insane comments to follow...yikes!, keep the doors locked and the lights on Hunter.

mystereeoso said...

Eskimo, upholding 'conservative values' on July 16, 2009:

"Tell me what part of 'pride' are you proud of? Is it the leather chaps and hats? The Birkenstocks and brush-cut haircuts? I sure get a kick out of this 'celebrate diversity' crap yet it seems that everybody dresses alike! Maybe we 'breeders' need an official uniform too! Or is it the open fornication on the parade floats that makes you proud? Please clarify and quote a Biblical reference where Jesus said, 'That's cool, sign up me'."

mahmood said...

Mystereeso "upholding" his insanity extrudes a comment...

huh??

East of Eden said...

Wow - cyber stalker is really becoming wierd. I never through I'd say something like this, but his comments make Gayle's comments almost palatable. Note that I made a comment about the actual commenters but, rather the comments. Thus - not a personal attack.

East of Eden said...

I'm sure glad we have Dalton as our premier:

"Humans Are Supposedly Superior to Animals?"

Based on some of today's comments, I think that may be a stretch....

East of Eden said...

Bec - you sure hit the nail on the head. I meant to reply to Stereo's first comment of the day but I figured that the rest of the world would know that we are mammals.

Southern Quebec said...

Does anybody else think that Hunter is just a little bit creepy with this post?

Did she really need to envision what that poor woman went through...

.
That was the shock material so you would not notice her slipping stuff in to suit her agenda. Such as referring to the foetus as a "baby" when it was still in the womb.

But you may notice she did not comment on how traumatic it must have been for said foetus, of the baby after it was outside the womb.

That's because she knows the baby has no memory or consciousness of the events surrounding its birth. Just like every other human ever born.

Certainly less consciousness than the seals she loves so much to see killed.

SQ - distasteful as the details are, sometimes it is necessary to not sugarcoat the brutality of which some creatures are capable. I interpreted the graphic detail as justifiable outrage - especially as a woman describing the ultimate violation of another woman.

I have never worked with street people but I have known people who do and that's pretty horrifying.

Near my office is a shelter for battered women - you want to see horror? Holey moley - absolutely astounding. And, contrary to popular belief, it is not just men who beat women - there are women who beat women and the results are just as horrifying and brutal.

I did, for a while, work with battered children when I was in university but I didn't last - the nightmares and emotional upheavals, not to mention rage (in some cases, I do "rage", Gayle) made me unfit to deal with the kids.

There is a whole other side to life and it ain't pretty. What we humans do to each other is so beyond belief, sometimes.

SQ: "Does anybody else think that Hunter is just a little bit creepy with this post?"

Yes, I do.

East: " I meant to reply to Stereo's first comment of the day but I figured that the rest of the world would know that we are mammals."

Humans are unique as far as I know as mammals on account of being two legged animals. Humans are part of the primate family of vertebrate animals. Are we "supposedly" superior to animals? Huntsy thinks so. I don't. How can we be superior to that which we fundamentally are? That is not a partisan question, so don't go knocking yourselves out if it interferes with your daily dose of conservative light.

Southern Quebec said...

E:
"SQ - distasteful as the details are..."

She made up the details. They are not fact. That's what creeps me out...

East of Eden said...

We human mammals are capable of reason. I learned that in my first year psychology. Some primates are able to reason as are some birds - but to a very limited degree. Dogs can reason to an extent (I am very partial to pooches so I give them lots of credit). We also have opposable thumbs.

One former female colleague informed me - before giving birth toher first child, that human childbirth is painful largely due to the size of our heads - especially in relation to the size of our bodies.

SQ - I just read this one, today. http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/674233. The story is true about the baby being cut out of another woman's womb - by a woman.

East of Eden said...

SQ - it shouldn't creep you out - heck, television is full of dramatization. The victim would have been suffering from incredible pain - imagine having your you-know-whats slowly being removed...from the inside. And, of course, her maternal instinct would have kicked in and her first thought would have been to save her baby.

Don't focus on the dramatization but do keep the main issue in focus - the murder of the woman, or the abused children. If you don't like Hunter's style int he blog - fine - but don't let it distract you from what is the salient issue - murder and abuse.

East of Eden said...

LS - some of us view the being in the womb as a baby. I am pro-life, unless the mother's life is endangered or if the baby will be born with a debilitating condition. From the moment of conception, that fertilized egg is, in my heart, a baby.

mystereeoso said...

East was quite clear on his sentiments about the abusers of children and other vulnerable people the other day when he said he thought they should be shot.

Southern Quebec said...

E
Still creepy. I know the story is true. There are lots of things that are true, that we don't need all the details on.

PS I got rid of the TV years ago. Best move!

mystereeoso said...

link for that

East of Eden said...

SQ - in 1996, I pulled the plug on Rogers and never regretted it. I have a TV and DVD player which I use maybe three times a year - I'll have a video weekend and that does me for months. I don't miss TV at all. I get my news off the internet and I like to read so I'm a frequent flyer at our local library.

East of Eden said...

Yes, Stereo - I would like to see abusers of children and other vulnerable people shot, removed from the planet, removed from the gene pool, incinerated, removed permanently. I do not apologize nor explain why I feel that way - it should be evident to anybody with even one shred of compassion or conscience. Anybody who disagrees...well, I'll leave it up to you to figure out.

mystereeoso said...

Since we're focusing on salient issues here today, I have a question. How do Huntsy and East of Eden and Bec, Eski and Mahmooood feel about the words impunity and clemency?

mystereeoso said...

musical interlude...

mystereeoso said...

Lalala...well, anyway just to work with your idea about the self evident rightness of shooting people who "abuse" vulnerable people...

Let's say some vulnerable invalids, sick with cancer can't get the right treatments because of the isotope shortage. By your East of Emotional logic I wonder if you could tell me who should be shot for that?

mystereeoso said...

Or try another example, say, a government cuts down on health inspection at meat processing plants and a bunch of vulnerable unsuspecting hot dog eaters contract listeriosis - who will the law of East shoot to make up for that?

I'd prefer that they die of natural causes in prison. It avoids the frenzied bloodlust that so often results in convictions on faulty evidence and the rush to execution.

I do not apologize nor explain why I feel that way - it should be evident to anybody with even one shred of compassion or conscience.
It is a hallmark of demagoguery to claim someone's compassion or conscience is somehow deficient if they do not agree with the demagogue's calls to violent retribution. Vigilantes usually make a similar excuse for whatever they do.

Anybody who disagrees...well, I'll leave it up to you to figure out.
I'll have to assume you believe that anybody who disagrees should be shot, removed from the planet, removed from the gene pool, incinerated, removed permanently.

You've already classified those who disagree with your view as having no compassion or conscience, thereby de-humanizing them and making them fair game for being shot etc.

East of Eden said...

LS - thank you so much. Finally, after months, somebody finally gets it. Yes, on all counts. Thank you.

Folks - take your lead from LS - he is the only one who finally got it.

And, it appears, that he agrees with me 100%. I'm thrilled.
