Monsters walk the earth and live amongst us. Evil, twisted monsters.I was thinking about that woman in Texas who cut off her baby's arms. . . .
There are people out there who will pity this woman, and beg the courts to give her another chance. There are people out there who will rally around this woman, and circulate petitions on her behalf. There are people out there who will say that with the right treatment, and perhaps some medication, this woman could be back in her home with her remaining two children and live out the rest of her life as a good mother. There are people out there who will maintain that the most important issue here is 'keeping the family together.' There are people out there who will claim that this woman couldn't help it, that she had a temporary aberration, that she is a good person who had an 'episode,' that none of her actions were really her own fault because of her background, or because of her upbringing, or because she was having a bad day and just lost control, or because she had a seizure, or postpartum depression, or because she was possessed by demons. . . . .
You name it, and somebody out there will be defending this woman in the name of SOMETHING.
I am not one of those people. I think she is a monster, and I think hanging is too good for her.
The only thing I might agree with, is the use of the word 'demon.' Not that she was possessed. I think she IS one.
