lacey-spearsIt would not be too far fetched to say that bloggers are nice people – most of them are, anyway, and as with any other group, there will always be several bad apples in the barrel. Well, for the world of bloggers, one of such bad apples stand out like a sore thumb – 27 year old Lacey Spears who actually poisoned her 5 year old son to death. She received a sentence of 20 years in prison for this heinous crime on grounds of a second-degree murder.

Doreen Lloyd, Westchester County’s assistant district attorney, said, “Her actions that day, they were inhuman. They despicable. They were evil.” Spears’ administered salt into 5 year old Garnett’s feeding tube as the boy remained sick in the hospital. He was unable to vomit the mixture out due to previous scarring and explosive bouts of diarrhea.

Spears has a condition known as Münchausen by proxy syndrome, which results in her craving for attention, as she happened to be a mother with a sick child. Suffering from a mental illness does not detract from the fact that she was competent enough to stand trial.

The good judge said, “This was not a spontaneous or ill-conceived solitary act. It was a serious and orchestrated series of actions that really shock the conscience.”

In other news, we have heard of a 12-year old who attempted to poison her mom just to get hold of her confiscated iPhone. Nuts!
