Mother who doused daughter in acid sent to secure unit - October 29th 2010, 04:35 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So I saw this on the news and was horrified. And I never know what to think about stories like this, because the mum was mentally ill, but I don't know. It's so sad.

I'm assuming you wrote both in the big bold blue and normal text. In that case, read the article, especially the part where it says she was schizophrenic, made frantic calls (suggesting she was in a paranoid delusion), was unfit to stand trial and was admitted to a secure psychiatric hospital. "Getting her act together" is something not as easy as it may sound to you when the mother has no control over her mental state. "going to jail" is just nonsense, if she were fit to stand trial, she would go to prison, not to jail (unless you want to be incredibly lenient). Her daughter deserves a funeral and sympathy from family, it's too late for a loving mother because she was stabbed and partially decomposed in an acid bath. You didn't really read and think about the article.

I don't care how mentally ill someone is, killing a THREE YEAR OLD by stabbing them multiple times, and then covering them in ACID is just downright disgraceful.

The first sentence was enough.

It's tragic to everyone. Two lives were lost and neither one understood why.

This is so sad. The mother is mentally ill, and sadly action could have been taken much sooner, but it wasn't. Now two lives are gone. It's sad.

I don't know who I feel worse for - the daughter or the mother. The poor little girl.. but I feel so bad for the mother for having to live with the knowledge of what she's done because of her disorder.

Man this is so so so sad, but I am more angry at the fact that mother didn't have help much earlier. Why weren't others aware of her illness, or aware it was that bad? Maybe if someone knew about this, she wouldn't be left alone with her baby and this could have been prevented.

If only the poor woman's family had thought to get her help, all this could have been prevented. At least they aren't going and blaming this on the social workers.

This.

It could've been prevented. They'd noticed the lady was acting strangely.. I'm not blaming anybody. Just saying that it could have been prevented.

I don't know how anyone can be blaming the mother for this? She is extremely mentally ill; while this is very tragic, it's not exactly her fault. That's why insanity is a legal defence.

What I don't understand is how her mother (the grandmother) or other family members didn't do anything before this point. She had caught her daughter with knives more than once before and didn't think that maybe getting help would be a good idea? If anyone is to blame, this woman's family should be. You can't not notice that someone is that mentally unwell.

I agree. If this woman was so mentally unfit, I don't believe she should have have custody of that child. I don't blame her for being ill, but certainly, action should have been taken long ago. There were numerous red flags.

Re: Mother who doused daughter in acid sent to secure unit - October 31st 2010, 12:37 AM

This is part of the reason why i HATE people who do not believe in mental illness. It is dangereous to assume someone can just "get over" and "straighten up they act" with something like schizophrenia. It's a hardware issue, you can't think and wish and pray your way out of it. If people need help, we need to GET THEM HELP!!

Just pointing this out... if it was a man, everyone would have automatically judged him to just be a horrible person who should be sentenced to death.

Um, what? Exactly what makes you think that? This has absolutely nothing to do with gender. I think the main factor here is that she is mentally unstable, not that she is a woman.

I actually disagree. This matter has nothing to do with gender. If it were a man, I would be wondering the exact same thing: Why didn't anyone get him help or remove the child from his care? A mental illness is a mental illness, regardless of a person's sex.
