(NBC New York)   Remember that Long Island mother who drowned her three children in a bathtub and then was found not guilty by reason of insanity and locked away in a secure mental facility? Well, it wasn't secure enough to keep her from getting pregnant again   (nbcnewyork.com) divider line 145

Sperm are very, very tiny and can fit through the cracks in doors and windows.

Attorney Tom Foley, who represents Demesyeux, said "it's outrageous" that Brewer was able to conceive a child while incarcerated
.
"This person's supposedly in a secure facility and she gets pregnant. This is the woman who had no idea what she was doing when she murdered her children."


I love how he's blaming her for "getting pregnant" and not the security guard or whoever who had sex with and impregnated a mentally ill woman.

I love how they contact the father of two of her dead kids to have him find a suitable home for the newborn.  What friggin business is it of his?  Unless, of course, he was the one that impregnated her.

And why the fark wasn't this woman sterilized?! Fark people and their "cruel and unusual punishment". You know who gets a life of cruel and unusual punishment?

Yes, but fortunately the courts are more interested in understanding why these women did it, and taking their mental health into account, than in just administering punishment as would surely be the case if a father murdered all of his children. Yay for double standards, and I'm not even trying to make this a men's rights issue. Sometimes there really is a good reason to remember Emerson's adage about how "consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."

Paternity test on the baby compared with the DNA of every male employee at that hospital in the last year. Fire him, fine him, make him pay someone to take care of the baby. She may have consented, but like with a teacher farking a student, when there's a power dynamic, it's completely unacceptable.

She probably got knocked up while doing the deed with another patient, unless it's an all female facility. I've work inpatient psych and it's not totally unheard of.  Doesn't make the facility look too competant though...

I knew it wasn't Andrea Yates for a few reasons. 1) She's from Texas, not Long Island, 2) Yates drown her five children & 3) She's currently in a mental institution in Texas

FTFA, in re the settlement money: After Nassau Surrogates Court Judge Edward McCarty decides whether Brewer is entitled to collect, he must make a similar ruling about the children's two fathers. If he finds that the men effectively abandoned their children, they may not be entitled, lawyers say.

It's pretty hard to take care of a kid after its been murdered.
 
2013-10-11 01:35:28 PM
...aaaand I just spent 15 minutes of my life on KnowYourMeme, partly trying to figure out if this is the actual case of "mother> who kill their babbys, becuse these babby cant frigth back?" from the "how is babby formed" meme.

For the record, it's not: the kids were buried in New York, but that incident happened in either Arizona or Arkansas (the state abbreviation given is AR, but given the source I don't trust it to be correct), about two years before this one. But there were three of them; it's that and the New York connection that made me curious.

Why "partly"? Because it's KnowYourMeme; you get sidetracked.

Yes, require everyone to give a sample of their private, personal effects without a warrant, court order, or any particularized suspicion.  If you aren't guilty, what do you have to hide, right?

And woe betide anyone who refuses, because the only possible reason anyone wouldn't agree to something so intrusive is because they are the rapist, right?

Cry me a goddamn river. She's locked up in a nuthouse for the rest of her life, and even if by some fluke she gets released--which is unlikely, since she's not only black, she's probably poor--she's too loony to ever have any quality of life or enjoy any freedom she may ever have. I'm sorry that you resent her shiatty life as some representation of how easy women have it. If she ever does gets better, the only "better" thought in her head is going to be how she killed all her kids.

Maybe if Andrea Yeager's farking husband had been paying enough attention to his wife as something other than a baby-maker, he'd have noticed that she was dangerously depressed (even told not to have any more kids because of her severe mental health issues), and that she wasn't capable of taking care of the kids. But no, he knocked her up with the fifth kid instead, she finally snapped from post-partum depression and her other issues, and killed them all. And everyone felt so bad for the man who lost all his kids. I'd love to see how he rationalizes all of that in his head, today. And the guy worked for NASA, I don't think he was some of idiot who just couldn't see what was going on. You don't miss it when your damn wife is schizophrenic.

General warrants are unconstitutional, and that's what you're talking about.  See the part that I bolded up top?  No way to accomplish that without something like a general warrant, and historically, courts have frowned upon that sort of thing in the US.

Now, they could ask all male employees to voluntarily give a sample, but they can't require it of everyone, not without some kind of a warrant, and as I pointed out, a blanket search warrant or other court order covering each and every employee would be invalid on its face.

Forcible sterilization is basically illegal, because the Eugenics movement in the US used it as a tool of social engineering/class warfare instead of harm-reduction.

On the flip side, bleeding-hearts have made treatments for the severely mentally ill difficult, committing someone for more than a few days is a long drawn out legal process that drains hospital resources, which is why we have so many homeless.

It's actually more common for a mother to kill their children than it is for fathers.

According to the US Dept. of Health and Human services, 14.8% of child deaths due to maltreatment were because of the father acting alone, but 27.3% of the deaths were the mother acting alone.  Maltreatment by both mother and father accounted for a further 22.5%.

shortymac: On the flip side, bleeding-hearts have made treatments for the severely mentally ill difficult,


It's not really fair to blame this on "bleeding hearts." In addition to the funding cuts mentioned above, the commitment process was toughened up because it really was too easy to abuse. There really were people being committed for no legitimate reason, because someone in their family wanted them out of their hair. You don't have to be a bleeding heart to want to rectify that. It's a horrible situation for families when they desperately need to get help for a loved one but they can't make it happen. On the other hand, nobody thinks institutionalizing someone against their will should be quick and easy.

You're right, I should have looked up the rules around when we can require DNA testing and then made my comment about this situation.

Or, you can just understand that I believe we should investigate the situation because it seems like some male in that hospital likely took advantage of this woman in a very immoral way.

It seems like you are inventing a privacy issue where none exists. Most likely the police would have the suspect pool narrowed down to the male employees (or any outside males) who had access to the patient within a certain time frame. Then they could get warrants for that group. That may include every male employee that has worked there in the past year, but they'd still be considered legitimate persons of interest.

dittybopper: General warrants are unconstitutional, and that's what you're talking about. See the part that I bolded up top? No way to accomplish that without something like a general warrant, and historically, courts have frowned upon that sort of thing in the US.


We could just have the NSA take care of it then.

And for the idiots who always blame republicans for everything, I remember when they opened all the mental hospitals and turned them all loose in NYC, and it was the farking 1970's, long before you could blame Ronald Reagan and the rest of the conservatives. It was Abe Beame who was mayor then, and Jimmy the anti-semite Carter who was in the White House.

Forcible sterilization is basically illegal, because the Eugenics movement in the US used it as a tool of social engineering/class warfare instead of harm-reduction.

On the flip side, bleeding-hearts have made treatments for the severely mentally ill difficult, committing someone for more than a few days is a long drawn out legal process that drains hospital resources, which is why we have so many homeless.

No, it's more like Republicans have reduced funding to next to nothing.


Difficulty level: naming a single program that the republicans or anyone else has ever cut funding for.

You can't, because it has never happened. Ever.

Some programs have had the amount of proposed funding increase cut. Liberals call that a cut in funding.

Cry me a goddamn river. She's locked up in a nuthouse for the rest of her life, and even if by some fluke she gets released--which is unlikely, since she's not only black, she's probably poor--she's too loony to ever have any quality of life or enjoy any freedom she may ever have. I'm sorry that you resent her shiatty life as some representation of how easy women have it. If she ever does gets better, the only "better" thought in her head is going to be how she killed all her kids.

Maybe if Andrea Yeager's farking husband had been paying enough attention to his wife as something other than a baby-maker, he'd have noticed that she was dangerously depressed (even told not to have any more kids because of her severe mental health issues), and that she wasn't capable of taking care of the kids. But no, he knocked her up with the fifth kid instead, she finally snapped from post-partum depression and her other issues, and killed them all. And everyone felt so bad for the man who lost all his kids. I'd love to see how he rationalizes all of that in his head, today. And the guy worked for NASA, I don't think he was some of idiot who just couldn't see what was going on. You don't miss it when your damn wife is schizophrenic.


She was also homeschooling all the children, because liberal school system will "infect" their children! They also lived in a modified school bus with 5 kids.

Russell really should have been brought up on negligence charges, because he refused to follow multiple doctors orders, let his wife spend 2 hours a day unsupervised (against doctors orders), and had her stop her anti-psychotics to continue to have more children.

He put his kids lives in danger and he should be in jail.

I heard her hubby has started the cycle again with a new wife.

Like that bleeding-heart, Ronald Regan, huh? What a pansy-ass LIB!!!


It was a mix of both, the bleeding-hearts made commitment, forcing treatment, etc much more difficult to do and governments jumped on the idea of just giving the mentally ill a prescription and sending them home to cut funding to mental hospitals.

2/10

Reading comprehension is your friend. Try it sometime. If you'd bothered to actually understand what I wrote, you'd know that I was expressing compassion for both Andrea Yates and the woman in TFA. For what it's worth, I think the crimes of both women should be considered in the context of the situations they were in when they committed them. And I do not believe they should be condemned to live in shiatty mental  institutions for the rest of their days if they can make enough progress to where they are no longer a danger to themselves or others.

However, I'm just a little puzzled that you seem to believe equal consideration should not apply to the crimes men commit. Then again, with your obvious anger management and rage issues, there's not much point in engaging your further.

Enjoy your white hot hate. I am sure it will keep you warm at night.

The town of Truro, MA dna tested all its males to solve the 2002 rape and murder of Christa Worthington. There was no warrant; there was the insinuation that if you refused, you did it and the whole town would know that you did it. In a small, insular town where families tend to live for generations, that was enough. There were no refusals. The testing ended up clearing the main suspect, the shellfish warden who had a child with the victim and was engaged in a custody dispute, and convicted a garbage man who had never even been on the radar. Why he took the test, I don't know.

This same pressure to test probably wouldn't fly here for many reasons, not the least of which being that it would be up for discussion whether a crime was committed or not. This would probably involve a hearing as to if she was competent to consent to sex, if it was claimed that the sex was consensual.

The Truro case is interesting, though.

DNA testing isn't infallible. Granted, the accuracy rate is pretty darn close to perfect, but cross-contamination of samples can happen. I'd think long and hard before I voluntarily gave a DNA sample for such an investigation, regardless of whether I was innocent. But then the police would probably follow me around and wait until I disposed of a straw or plastic spoon or something and take my DNA from that. I saw an episode of Forensic Files where they nabbed a guy using DNA from a plastic spoon he threw away after eating a Blizzard at Dairy Queen.

I was going from memory. I must've been wrong about that. IIR, though, there were not many refusals. Again, I don't know why the garbage guy agreed.

There's actually quite a few of them. Unfortunately.

It's actually more common for a mother to kill their children than it is for fathers.

According to the US Dept. of Health and Human services, 14.8% of child deaths due to maltreatment were because of the father acting alone, but 27.3% of the deaths were the mother acting alone.  Maltreatment by both mother and father accounted for a further 22.5%.


I'm guessing some of that is because it's more common for the mother to still be with her children than the father.  If a father isn't cut out to be a dad, he's a lot more likely to just run off and leave the mom with the baby.  A mom is more likely to stay stuck with the kids.  There are more kids living with just their moms in general than just their dad's,too.  So the percentage of moms being present at all being higher makes it easy for there to be a higher percentage of moms that end up murdering the kids.

What if DNA on file (or submit to request) is a condition of employment?

I do that (private security) for non pat down random searches of incoming & outgoing personell where I work.

Granted, it gets awful muddy real fast if it is a state facility... but what about a private contractor?

I dont want to have to hash it out the details, but as these incidents keep popping up, I see someone pushing that angle.

No, you don't. But...as many kneejerk bigots as there are ready to leap up and judge males guilty of transgressions against females and, cue angelic music, mothers no less, making assertions about behavioral anomolies can buy you world crashing troubles, including CPS taking your kids, womens groups defending "the poor victim of male oppressions" rights with more reasources and money than most people can avail on their own, and or, FSM help you, wholly false charges of abuse or inversions of actual self defense where you're jailed and have to deal with this as well of all the preceding.

you all seem to think the guards are the only possible culprits.  what about all the time the inmates spend together doing "activities" during the day, so as to increase their ability to interact with other humans, and one day, maybe, normalize enough to get back into society.  Any of those social gatherings was enough for her to develop feelings for another inmate and have consensual sex with that person.  It doesn't have to be a guard when they are left pretty much alone for most of the day.  Remember high school?  Like that: finding new cubby holes to have some "private time" with their new special someone.

lycanth: Mike Chewbacca: lycanth: Mike Chewbacca: shortymac: hailin: And why the fark wasn't this woman sterilized?! Fark people and their "cruel and unusual punishment". You know who gets a life of cruel and unusual punishment? That child whose mom is famous for murdering his siblings in a horrific fashion. Gawd damn it so much I hate the bleeding hearts sometimes.

Forcible sterilization is basically illegal, because the Eugenics movement in the US used it as a tool of social engineering/class warfare instead of harm-reduction.

On the flip side, bleeding-hearts have made treatments for the severely mentally ill difficult, committing someone for more than a few days is a long drawn out legal process that drains hospital resources, which is why we have so many homeless.

No, it's more like Republicans have reduced funding to next to nothing.

Difficulty level: naming a single program that the republicans or anyone else has ever cut funding for.

You can't, because it has never happened. Ever.

Some programs have had the amount of proposed funding increase cut. Liberals call that a cut in funding.

You're joking, right?

Typical. Rather than answer with an example, you try to ridicule.


That was ridiculing? I was simply asking for clarification to see if my sarcasmeter was broken.

Stonefly: She probably got knocked up while doing the deed with another patient, unless it's an all female facility. I've work inpatient psych and it's not totally unheard of.  Doesn't make the facility look too competant though...


Seems likely. A few years ago I was interviewing for an entry level position at a local state-run mental hospital. I asked the administrator what my duties would be, without missing a beat she says "keeping the patients from humping each other. That's really about it." I wouldn't have guessed it would be such a problem.

namegoeshere: The town of Truro, MA dna tested all its males to solve the 2002 rape and murder of Christa Worthington. There was no warrant; there was the insinuation that if you refused, you did it and the whole town would know that you did it. In a small, insular town where families tend to live for generations, that was enough. There were no refusals. The testing ended up clearing the main suspect, the shellfish warden who had a child with the victim and was engaged in a custody dispute, and convicted a garbage man who had never even been on the radar. Why he took the test, I don't know.

This same pressure to test probably wouldn't fly here for many reasons, not the least of which being that it would be up for discussion whether a crime was committed or not. This would probably involve a hearing as to if she was competent to consent to sex, if it was claimed that the sex was consensual.

The Truro case is interesting, though.


Interesting.

/shellfish warden, heh.

Really? They locked up all of her except the twat? That thing was wandering around by itself?
 
2013-10-11 08:12:15 PM

o'really: /shellfish warden, heh.


Shellfish warden is Very Serious Business in coastal towns.

Srsly though, it really sucked to be that guy because the whole town thought he did it. He was the only real suspect before being excluded by dna. Her parents, moneyed people from Away, used this to take his daughter away from him and get full custody. Even after he was cleared, the court wouldn't give him back his daughter.

cryinoutloud: Cry me a goddamn river. She's locked up in a nuthouse for the rest of her life, and even if by some fluke she gets released--which is unlikely, since she's not only black, she's probably poor--she's too loony to ever have any quality of life or enjoy any freedom she may ever have. I'm sorry that you resent her shiatty life as some representation of how easy women have it. If she ever does gets better, the only "better" thought in her head is going to be how she killed all her kids.

Maybe if Andrea Yeager's farking husband had been paying enough attention to his wife as something other than a baby-maker, he'd have noticed that she was dangerously depressed (even told not to have any more kids because of her severe mental health issues), and that she wasn't capable of taking care of the kids. But no, he knocked her up with the fifth kid instead, she finally snapped from post-partum depression and her other issues, and killed them all. And everyone felt so bad for the man who lost all his kids. I'd love to see how he rationalizes all of that in his head, today. And the guy worked for NASA, I don't think he was some of idiot who just couldn't see what was going on. You don't miss it when your damn wife is schizophrenic.


Yeah, its always a man's fault, right? And working for NASA automatically qualifies you for being fully capable of managing and curing schizophrenia. Couched by a Schrodinger's Troll disclaimer.

FatherChaos: Can you imagine that poor kid's life?  At some point, they have to tell him/her about what mommy did.  Man, I can't imagine that.

What's worse, mental illness can be hereditary.


Imagine if reincarnation is real, and its one of her previous kids?

"Remember that time Mommy killed me?"

"Ummmm...yes?"

"So do I."

Her case has received renewed attention in recent weeks because she is trying to collect $350,000 from a settlement that the childrens' fathers won from Nassau County in wrongful death lawsuits.

I, too would like to know how Nassau County was found to have been responsible for the deaths if her children. Anyone?

Not always, but in this case? He belonged to a super fundy church that believed a woman's job was to stay at home and make babies, as many babies as possible. Doctors warned him that his wife had severe mental illness, that she should not have more children, that post-partum depression would cause psychosis, that she needed medication. He pressured her to stop taking her anti-psychotic medication and bear another child. She did, went stark raving mad and killed all her kids. If I recall correctly, he also enlisted other members of the church including the pastor to pressure her. She did not want to, but they kept after her till she gave in.

Yeah, Yates is the one in a million who really isn't to blame for the death of her kids. She begged for help, and was denied time and again, and forced to continue as brood mare. I have no hate for her at all, just pity. I wish her a peaceful life of complete amnesia, poor woman.

Also, really? None of you saw what cryingoutloud did there?

dittybopper: Yes, require everyone to give a sample of their private, personal effects without a warrant, court order, or any particularized suspicion.  If you aren't guilty, what do you have to hide, right?


Right or wrong, if they were civilians, this would be seen as probably cause.

Why should the guards get to hide behind their badge.
