GARDNER, Mass. - A woman who believes she was being stalked by a cult has been charged with stabbing her 2-year-old daughter 100 times with scissors, her lawyer and police have said, and can be heard yelling "Die! Die!" on a 911 call.
Susan Johnson's screams can be heard on the 911 call made by a security guard who helped to subdue her in a laundry room at a Gardner apartment building Wednesday night.
Johnson, 38, also used an electrical cord from a dryer to try and strangle the toddler, police said, but the security guard and two residents separated mother and child just before police arrived.

Or what drugs wasn’t she on, that she was supposed to be taking?
Obamination approves: Not Guilty
That the child survived this horrific attack and is expected to live is a miracle. The mom is obviously nuts. Let’s pray for the baby, that after she’s recovered she finds herself in a good home. The mom is 38? Any other kids, same prayer. And dear Lord, close that womb.
What’s crazy is how often crazy people are allowed to retain physical custody of their children by children’s services.
That poor baby may find itself in a good home, but damage is done. The mother, pure evil. You are good to only pray that her womb is closed. She deserves worse.
Usually a good antipsychotic (whether it’s an older one like Thorazine or something very new like Abilify) will take the coo coo factor out of these birds. The problem is often that there is no support network for the mentally afflicted person. Does she have a hubby? (Probably not)
You know, this just goes to show that if we had enacted some type of strict scissors and electric cord control legislation, this never would have happened....
It’s not about her! A support network!?
Take out the coo coo factor and there is still a Damaged Child!
But, gee, let’s worry about Mom’s mental state. . .
Abortion is mothers killing children, at a rate of over a million a year in America alone.
That same culture of death is what results in horrors like this.
It has to be reversed.
It would be advantageous if we didn’t have to tie up beds in psychiatric hospitals in the long term with things that can be treated on an outpatient basis, if we had somebody to check in on the patient enough. This is about preventing more Damaged Children (or worse) in similar cases.
What’s really needed is an implantable automated drug delivery system, with some sort of alarm system that “phones home” if it’s removed — and some of these people, even when medicated, ARE crazy enough to dig out a drug implant with a kitchen knife. But with the great majority, as long as they stay on their ultra-strong meds, they’ll stay in touch reality. However, even mentally normally people often forget to take medicine regularly, so obviously fundamentally crazy people will do so too, even if they sincerely meant to take it regularly. A missed dose or two and that grasp on reality that was prompting them to follow doctor’s orders to take their meds every day can slip away quickly, often to be reinterpreted as “THEY are trying to poison me with these pills” or some such paranoid cr&p.
Until we have reliable and secure implantable drug delivery systems, people with mental illnesses that involve complete detachment from reality simply need to be kept confined.
Abortion is the silent genocide. Why aren’t the likes of Al Sharpton in an absolute tizzy about this?
Evil knows no bound.
What are you saying?
You think child services, the government, can handle this?
Just a little more friggin’ compassion for the Mother?
The child is damaged. By an ADULT who should have cared more for the innocent than herself.
She should hang from the neck until dead.
Prevention? Yeah, Right. Let’s PREVENT the next one....you know what..we can’t!
No, paranoid schizophrenia is what results in horrors like this. It has nothing whatsoever to do with abortion. It has everything to do with screwed up “politically correct” laws that force the states to handle people with mental illness “just like any other illness”. Never mind the fact that people with cancer, or asthma, or pneumonia don’t have a tendency to suddenly loose their grip on reality and start stabbing/drowning/shooting people.
By the time the Coo Coo gets to this point, it’s too late
Right. I have NO compassion for the mother. None. I don’t care what her problem is...because that’s the problem.
Focusing on why the KILLER the ABOMINATION is a killer or an abomination...who, in their right mind...CARES about the culprit?
They had their chance...
Your approach will simply leave society in its handicapped state. You said you cared not about her even before she went off the deep end. That says a lot about you.
I leave society in it’s handicapped state?
Yeah, I’m responsible for the action of this cold hearted, weak, individual
What does that say about me? The question is what does it say about HER?
It ain’t my child we speak of, it wasn’t me who spread my legs....got pregnant, then BEAT an innocent child...
I was thinking the same. Prayers for the child.
Yeah, I beat my kid, killed what I gave birth to...it ain't my fault..’cause I'm stupid, mean and poor...blame it on the b-—tch that didn't give birth, you know the one..the one with the money..the what don't understand...
Yeah, that's her...she got it all, all I got was this BABY..Who deserves a beatin’ cause’ I had a bad life...
As usual, the AP writer chose to try to make excuses for this piece of human debris.
I think she needs a little time at the end of a rope. Let her know how it feels to be strangled. That poor baby. I hope she recovers and has no memory of what a horrible thing that was done to her.
Thanks. I thought I was the only one who saw the real tragedy. Some seem so intent on the “mother” that they fail tp see the reality of the child.
THANK YOU! I have an uncle who goes off his meds often. He is manic depressive/bipolar. When he goes off his meds, he threatens to kill my grandparents. But as soon as he is on his meds they welcome him back into their home. A ticking time-bomb if you ask me. The only words I have spoken to him in the past 10 years were "If you come anywhere near my house or my family I'll offer you a permanent solution to your problems."
She’s obviously very confused, the baby was supposed to be stabbed and strangled in the womb 2 years ago. /s
No, paranoid schizophrenia is what results in horrors like this. It has nothing whatsoever to do with abortion.
I agree. She was clearly psychotic and not in touch with reality.
Evil people who kill their kids plan it ahead, do it in secret and try to cover it up. They don’t do it in a public area and make a bunch of noise that will attract attention. Only truly crazy people do that.
My heart is breaking for the poor little girl.
The mother tried to kill the little girl.
Thus, the mother is evil.
I am very sorry for your problems. I too have a family member who wouldn’t take his meds. My husband’s brother was an accident waiting to happen & had guns. Nobody not even the police would listen to us when we told them he was going to shoot someone. My father in law said he had no bullets so the guns didn’t matter. About five years ago as soon as it turned Xmas Eve we got a call. My brother in law shot himself in the head & nearly shot Pop. Somehow he lived although he is blind. Now Pop has to take care of him & he is in his 70’s. I don’t know what will happen to my brother in law once Pop is gone & I honestly don’t care. Prayers for your family.
My old, wise tomcat says if you keep that hissy fit up, he will bite your ears.
