California woman drowns 12-year-old son

More than a decade after a woman was prosecuted in Montana for trying to drown her baby son in a river, she’s accused of killing the now 12-year-old by drowning him in an irrigation ditch in California. Authorities said Monday that an autopsy found Jackson Telnas died Saturday of drowning. His 7-year-old brother is hospitalized in critical condition. Sherri Telnas, 45, has been arrested.

TL;DR version: She tried to kill her baby in 2008 because of voices. She was in prison from be a good 2009-2016. She got custody of her 12 and 7 year-old sons, took them to a ditch and tried to drown them. One dead, one critical. So many questions. I wouldn't have let her have custody of a fucking turtle, much less a child.

She literally tried to murder her son but they felt it necessary to mention the father smoked marijuana like it was some kind of equivalent. She should never have been allowed near him again. Female privilege for you.

So it took this boy 11 years to drown? That’s how I read the title... must be dyslexic.

This is justice system incompetence. If you show mental instability and tried to kill your kid you shouldnt get the chanve to try again. This is a duck doing what ducks do and the judge is held accountabke for this one. Its like letting a "reformed" child predator be a school guidance counselor.

It's not murder, just a late abortion

I know socialised medicine is a never going to fly in the US but some kind of increased investment in basic psychiatric surveillance might not go amiss.

Why an irrigation ditch? You would think filling the bathtub at home would work just fine.....Too soon?
