Just the average "devil made me decapitate and eat my babies brain" story. Ho hum.
SAN ANTONIO — The scene was so gruesome investigators could barely speak: A 3 1/2-week-old boy lay dismembered in the bedroom of a single-story house, three of his tiny toes chewed off, his face torn away, his head severed and his brains ripped out.
"At this particular scene you could have heard a pin drop," San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said Monday. "No one was speaking. It was about as somber as it could have been."
Officers called to the home early Sunday found the boy's mother, Otty Sanchez, sitting on the couch with a self-inflicted wound to her chest and her throat partially slashed, screaming "I killed my baby! I killed my baby!" police said. She told officers the devil made her do it, police said.
Sanchez, 33, apparently ate the child's brain and some other body parts before stabbing herself, McManus said.
"It's too heinous for me to describe it any further," McManus told reporters.
Sanchez is charged with capital murder in the death of her son, Scott Wesley Buccholtz-Sanchez. She was being treated Monday at a hospital, and was being held on $1 million bail.
The slaying occurred a week after the child's father moved out, McManus said. Otty Sanchez's sister and her sister's two children, ages 5 and 7, were in the house, but none were harmed.
Police said Sanchez did not have an attorney, and they declined to identify family members.
No one answered the door Monday at Sanchez's home, where the blinds were shut. A hopscotch pattern and red hearts were drawn on the walk leading up to the house.
Sanchez's aunt, Gloria Sanchez, said her niece had been "in and out" of a psychiatric ward but did not say where she was treated or why. She said a hospital called several months ago to check up on her.
"Otty didn't mean to do that. She was not in her right mind," a sobbing Gloria Sanchez told The Associated Press on Monday by phone. She said her family was devastated.
Investigators are looking into Sanchez's mental health history to see if there was anything "significant," and whether postpartum difficulties could have factored into the attack, McManus said.
Postpartum depression and psychosis have been cited as contributing factors in several other cases in Texas in recent years in which mothers killed their children.
Andrea Yates drowned her five children in her Houston-area home 2001, saying she believed Satan was inside her and trying to save them from hell. Her attorneys said she had been suffering from severe postpartum psychosis, and a jury found Yates not guilty by reason of insanity in 2006.
In 2004, Dena Schlosser killed her 10-month-old in her Plano home by slicing off the baby's arms. She was found not guilty of reason by insanity, after testifying that she killed the baby because she wanted to give her to God.
Sanchez's neighbors expressed sorrow and horror Monday at the grisly killing.
Neighbor Luis Yanez, 23, said his kids went to school with one of the small children who lived at the house. He said he often saw a woman playing outside with the children but didn't know whether it was Otty.
"Why would you do that to your baby?" said Yanez, a tire technician. "It brings chills to you. They can't defend themselves."
Allen Taylor, another neighbor, said "once she gets back in her right mind, she's going to be devastated."

sure looks like fun though, shooting up bodies that are immobilized in medievel torture scenarios. bonus if you make it to the gimp stage...
Look, I expect gangsta mamis in Nissan Maximas to cut me off as they struggle to hold their cellphones with their shoulder.
I expect fools in tinted out Escalades with overpriced rims to park in bike lanes, as the fix the EQ to zone into "This is why i'm hot (the remix).
Obviously, Bedford-locked curl dangling top hat guys will use any piece of the road as a passing lane as they rush around doing their holy work, bike lane or not.
But NYPD? The fuckin cops who are supposed to enforce safety and peace? What is this? Machiavelli the Prince put into action? If people can't love or respect you, the must fear you? Is this some sort of a crazy competition as to how much shit a cop can get away with before his papa cop tells him to knock it down a tad?
Why would a cop run a red light or a stop sign? Park in a bike lane? Why would a cop give a ticket to someone who's parked in a bike lane if they park there themselves? What are we supposed to do? Are we supposed to kick the cop car as we ride by? Yell at it? Take photos and send it to the mayor or whoever? Write petitions? Set the fuckin police cruisers on fire? Throw rocks at them from a secret location as they drive by? Spit on a cop car then waste your time dealing with a pointless summons? Fuck a police officers stay-at-home wife, dirty - then leave a "Parked my BIKE COCK in your wifes ASS" note, while the pig hubby goes about his daily business along with a lil order of Vietnamese food from the comfort of a nearby bikelane?
What do YOU think?
Every now and then when yer out riding around, somebody is gonna piss you off and your going to lose it. Maybe a cab swerves and bumps into you, nearly killing you. That might get me upset. The stuntdrivers that rocket thru the streets in the dollar vans, while their insanity may be impressive like kids smoking in elementary school, gettin snagged by one of these dudes is 100% death. Or maybe you were bullied too much as a kid, and when an old asian man makes you fall off yer bike you get soooo enraged you have to knock em upside the head with a ulock.
Hasidic mini vans that drive like 90 year old blind folks (are there no traffic cops along bedford?)
Hipster fixers that never learned how to stop? In flip flops?
Unless you are a zen master, something is gonna set you off.

There they are. The results. There are 6,760,000,000 people in the world - we have 54 votes, that means that we just surveyed 0.0000007988 % of you. Thank you for participating in our holy research.
BMX WINS! BMX with 37 votes - thats 68% - seems like its the method of choice if you want to get around town/city/village/planet. But then again, is biking really about getting around or something else?
After all, isn't biking just about picking out cool colors for your setup? Or perhaps its about busting stunts and tricks? Getting somewhere and covering distance is fun, but perhaps staying in one place and covering height is the bees knees? I for one, voted for this category. Why? BMX is one of the bicycles chillin in my kitchen RIGHT now. As I type this.
Unsurprisingly, a Mountain bike is a close second (kind of) with 24 %. After all, this is a planet wide survey - and the majority of this planet, believe it or not, has not much of a infrastructure (i think) so therefore we need off road capabilities from our two wheeled friend/counterpart. Mountain bike is a broad definition - so whatever it means to you, that's what we meant. Did we mean a geared up beast with all sorts of shit bolted onto it - or did we mean a slick single speed clean setup that's more of a BMX then a MTB, who knows, but this is not the place or time to get into that discussion. What about hybrid bikes, are they MTB with slicks and silly shaped frames? Are hybrids something we should make fun of - kind of a nutless wonder of a cycle, no? You'd be wrong. And we have photo proof.
Freeride and downhill bikes take third and fourth place, respectively, with 16 and 12 %. These are fun machines, not many own them and their definition is also broad. I claimed I have a freeride machine, suspension front and back, but some would say its a DH monster. Those people would be little whimps and know nothing about my bike.
24 inch cruisers and street bikes got 11 %. This is arguably my favorite type of bicycle. I have one, I love it. It's perfect for the city, I'd say. You can cover distance, bust stunts, do skids, do ill alleyoops on and off curbs at speed. You can look cool with it, you can just cruise it to the bar to get a can of cheap beer. Its kind of small but big enough to not feel tiny like the winner few paragraphs up. I recently took the brakes off my 24" mtbmx cruiser thing. It added a bit of extra fun and danger - I'm putting brakes back on, I think. Great bikes.
Fixed gear bikes - 6th place. I want one. I'll build one, and you'll see it on here - watch. "Different" for the first few minutes, but once you're used to it, it's quite fun. All the kids busting stunts on these, madness. Good stuff.
The above procession is followed by the road, and dutch bikes. Shout out to Empire Bicycles NYC who's about to drop some ILL dutch bikes onto the city - but more on that later. Watch this space for Create2Destroy X Empire Bicycles collabo soon.
Penny farthing bike placed almost last, yet still got 4 votes, leading to conclusion that there is a inner comedian in 7% of us, beaten out by a lowrider trike/recumbent combo. Smashing.
What does this all mean. All of it is actually very straight forward. Ride your bike. Whatever it is, wherever you are, hop on it. BMX might not be for everyone, but if you're a person of any age, who has a hint of interest towards those amazing little machines and are not embarrassed of being seen on a TINY clown bike - buy one! Otherwise - forget it, they are too small and pointless. Get a hybrid, or a road bike with 28 gears or a recumbent trike.
You want to get around fast - I'd say get a single speed road bike, so if there is a need to be super cool , you can keep pedaling and everyone will think you're on a fixed gear, and thats all one could ask for, no? Best of both worlds.
If you want another type of bike for any reason, buy one today - tomorrow may never come.
Our blog is doing big things and making huge waves out there on the intrawebs, all thanks to YOU people. 54 votes - while not much in say, a presidential election, is big business in the blog world (for us). This site is growing, we're making dozens of cents a month of online ads and are even supported by the church of Scientology, who's ads you might have noticed on our side bar.
Corruption, money laundering, and selling kidneys - not a hobby you would expect a couple of rabbi's would partake in. The party didn't end there - a few other New Jersey public officials and assembly men have also been arrested, but their corruption aint a surprise.

This vid is obviously for One Love, with The Message track over it - but its all good. I don't think The Message ever got an official video, besides that 20 second intro in the beginning of If I Ruled The World.
I didn't know where the original sample came from, I don't dig, so I was pretty psyched when I watched masterpiece "The Professional" and heard Sting lace this sample. Is this where the sample came from or does it go farther back?
(watch the movie if you haven't seen it, its amazing)
Keep up the good work Nas, there's one life, one love, so there can only be one King.
Anyone who bikes in the city has most definitely been in a situation where a pedestrian or a driver fucks up your flow. Alot of times its their fault - but alot of times its ours. The worst I've ever done was kick a few car grills in, punch a few side mirrors, scrape a couple a doors with my barends - and then forget about it minutes later as you move it along.
If you commute by bike every single day you're bound to get worked up and heated over some dumb shit, like..... someone in your way causing you to slow your roll, people thinking bikelanes are passing lanes or making you almost die by cutting you off something fierce. And there has been plenty of moments where I wanted to throw down - and quite frankly, this is exactly the reason why I wear my downhill carbon knuckle insert gloves when commuting - even if its hot as fuck - carbon knuckles to the face would hurt AND when you smash someones sideview mirror with a single punch and zero pain to self, it impresses them and makes them NOT want to fuck with you any longer. You can also just spit on them. I see a car parked in a bike lane from a block away, I get them glands working, clearing my sinus a bit, really get a deep one out, let it spray. I even got heated enough to spit on a cop car that was parked in the bike lane after carefully (but not carefully enough) making sure that the fat lazy cops were not around their police cruiser parked sloppily next to a wide open parking spot. Sure I got pulled over 5 blocks later by some pissed off pigs who gave me a summons for "spitting in public" - which was dropped anyway. Street justice was served with no blood spilled.
BUT this dude took it to the extreme. It didn't seem that he was injured/hurt/threatened by the asian dude - even if he caused him to crash - he should have rode away, he could have pushed the dude. Hell, if it HAD to be done, he may even slap the old fella, but a heavy ass metal U-Lock to the side of the head, 4 times over, with full swing extension and all, beat down style? Thats tooooo much. Way too much. This is how people go to jail for assault with a weapon. Surely this lil youtube vid is not helping much either in the "un-identification" process.
What do ya'll think? Lets take this discussion to the comments.
saw this on prollyisnotprobably.com

Intolerance is a bad thing people, and should never be based on dairy content, only race, sex, or religion (and sometimes odor).
It could be a combination of 19th-century mechanics, 21st-century technology — and a 20th-century horror movie.
A Maryland company under contract to the Pentagon is working on a steam-powered robot that would fuel itself by gobbling up whatever organic material it can find — grass, wood, old furniture, even dead bodies.
Robotic Technology Inc.'s Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot — that's right, "EATR" — "can find, ingest, and extract energy from biomass in the environment (and other organically-based energy sources), as well as use conventional and alternative fuels (such as gasoline, heavy fuel, kerosene, diesel, propane, coal, cooking oil, and solar) when suitable," reads the company's Web site.
That "biomass" and "other organically-based energy sources" wouldn't necessarily be limited to plant material — animal and human corpses contain plenty of energy, and they'd be plentiful in a war zone.
EATR will be powered by the Waste Heat Engine developed by Cyclone Power Technology of Pompano Beach, Fla., which uses an "external combustion chamber" burning up fuel to heat up water in a closed loop, generating electricity.
The advantages to the military are that the robot would be extremely flexible in fuel sources and could roam on its own for months, even years, without having to be refueled or serviced.
Upon the EATR platform, the Pentagon could build all sorts of things — a transport, an ambulance, a communications center, even a mobile gunship.
In press materials, Robotic Technology presents EATR as an essentially benign artificial creature that fills its belly through "foraging," despite the obvious military purpose.
I have a feeling these won't make the album:

I'm allergic - 0 (0%)
I had my money on "I'm allergic..." - because its either me or everyone else who has a problem, except apparently this specific allergy refers to flux capacitors, and as a result, picking that choice would be a lie. One just cant afford to spend too much time accessing pointless risks, and as a result when a question arises its important to stick to your decision. Unsurprisingly, this reminds me of a commitment many of us have made to ourselves and others. And if it wasn't for the gift, we would all be lost. And as R dot Kelly sings from the soul, so do our polls. It just wouldn't internet democracy any other way. C2D will help. Enjoy...... enjoy.
Watch the video, watch it twice. It matters very little if you like the track or not - I don't, particularly. Turn it off if you must. The song has a few catchy lil parts here and there, but overall its meh - BUT - the video is brilliant in its pure simplicity and display of health.
Now, I don't normaly react to these silly rap videos. Its all the same shit. BUT, there is something about the slowmotion footy in this clip that gives it a extra zing. Extra bling blaow. Judge it for yourself. I look forward to seeing your comments: you like it? no? more titties?
Suckas need bodyguards
Dude has been breakin off some ill shit for the last few years. If you don't know by now, you should get a smack....
By the way, anyone catch this Primo Michael Jackson tribute mix?
or this Dwele MJ tribute:
The new CAGE is out. Check out the new album on his El Myspeizo - I like it.
He went from this:To this over the past few years:
And the music changed as well, ALOT, but its still all good. Dude got talent and that laid back, yet crispy flow. Not only a studio MC either, I've seen him live a few times and he kills it. The new album, Depart From Me, is one of those albums you must be in a mood for, or it wont work - but if the mood is right, it hits hard.
Check out the video above too - fresh.
Thumbs up Cage.
