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!
