Holy shit, I can’t believe that this “mother” did. If you don’t have your head up your ass and have read or seen the news in the last 2 days, you’ve seen that NY mother, LaShanda Armstrong, drove herself and her 3 babies into the Hudson for them all to drown and die.
That alone is FUCKED up, but what makes this story so much worse is that moments before she drove into the river, she stopped and let her 10-year old son out of the car. The boy watched in horror as the car went off a boat ramp into the river, ultimately killing her and his 3 siblings. What a sick, selfish bitch. This poor boy.
This brave boy then ran to a nearby fire station and alerted firefighters.
A drenched and shaken Lashaun Armstrong stumbled into the Newburgh Fire Department at about 7:50 p.m. local time on Tuesday, police said. “The boy reported that his mother had driven the car into the river,” said Newburgh Police Chief Michael Ferrara. It appeared the children were alive when the mother “intentionally drove the car into the river,” he said.
Police are saying that the woman may have gone through with this murder/suicide because of an earlier domestic dispute. WTF? She drove her soccermom van into the river with her 2 sons, ages 5 and 2, and her little girl, aged 11 months – because her and her man got into a fight? The article doesn’t say that, but I don’t know what else a domestic dispute means besides that. Do you? The 10-year old is reported to have a different father than the 3 little ones. Did she let him out because she only wanted to kill the 3 that belonged to the assfuck she was fighting with, like to get back at him? This story just keeps getting more and more fucked up.
Apparently, one of the mother’s relatives had alerted police about a possible domestic dispute. “There was tussling in the background but also a history of domestic problems in the past,” Ferrara said. Authorities said the children’s father, Jean Pierre, did not live in the home. They are seeking him for questioning, police said.
It took them over an hour to find the car that had fallen 10-feet in the water. Police said finding them all buckled into the car was a horrible sight.
I can’t get past the survivor guilt that the 10-year old will now feel the rest of his life. I don’t wish that this selfish c*** would’ve taken him with them too, but why not let them all out and end your own fucked up life and leave these babies out of it?
People are coming forward claiming that this woman was a good, attentive mom who balanced care of her children with an outside job at a warehouse. They were all shocked by the news. Well, me too then. I would consider myself a great mom, and I would never plunge my kids into an icy river with me because I got into a fight with my baby daddy.
This is all too reminiscent of Susan Smith of course. But she was even more selfish and just plunged her boys alone into the lake and walked away. We all know that story, the new dick her in life didn’t like kids so she got rid of them and blamed it on a fake car-jacking. At least that bitch is serving life.
RIP little Landon – 5, Lance – 2, and Lainaina – 11 months.
LaShanda – hope the devil himself was waiting for you when you arrived.
Thanks to everyone who sent in tips on this one.
***** update: it seems that now there are further reports released with more accurate information, so let me give an update:
- She didn’t let him out, he escaped as they were going under after opening a window
- Mom grabbed his pant leg before he swam out and said, “I made a mistake” (no shit bitch!)
- According to reports, mom found out dad was cheating so she did this to get back at him
- According to the 10-year old – mom said to her kids before they plunged into the water, “”If I’m going to die, you’re going to die with me.”
- A good Samaritan found the boy soaking wet and shivering and yelling for help and drove him to a nearby fire station
- Shivering and barely able to speak, little Lashaun told firefighters how his mother had launched the van into the river with his siblings inside and how, just moments before, she dialed her dad for help, the kids screaming in the background.
***More updates according to this article: N.Y. Mom Who Drove Herself, 3 Kids Into River Left Dying Declaration on Facebook Before Tragedy
Man, this makes me sick… the article listed above starts off by saying:
“The overwhelmed New York mother who drowned herself and three kids in the Hudson River tried her best to provide her family with a happy home life — but was consistently let down by their deadbeat father, who failed to provide the love or money they desperately needed, her friends told the New York Post.” While that might be true, its NO FUCKING excuse to kill your children!
Apparently 30 minutes before she plunged her kids and herself into the Hudson she updated her Facebook status to, “I’m sorry everyone forgive me please for what I’m gonna do . . . This is it!!!”
I don’t know what else to do besides copy this over and tell you that it makes me furious that people are saying, “poor her, she tried but her man was just so mean to her”. Still NO excuse to kill your kids! WTF!!!
Armstrong, 25, kept a steady job and took college classes but was abandoned by Jean Pierre — the fly-by-night father of the three dead children — and had nowhere to turn for help.
“He was terrible to her. He was very domineering and controlling over her. He was just so cruel. She just wanted a normal family,” said one friend, Christine Santos, 29, who lives nearby.
The dad — who was arrested in March because of $11,000 in unpaid support — also threatened to claim custody of the kids.
“That’s what pushed her over the edge,” said Santos. “He must have broken her spirit and taken away her will to live.”
I still hope LaShanda is in HELL! Taking away her will to live sucks, so off yourself and leave those kids out of it.
