Dena Schlosser lost her job at Walmart after it was revealed to her boss that she had been previously incarcerated for cutting the arms off of her 10-month-old child. The crime occurred in 2004, and Schlosser was found covered in blood while singing Christian hymns. She had just used a knife to chop the arms off of the infant, and even confessed to it over the phone with a daycare worker. The woman has a Wikipedia page that tells the entire disgusting story of depravity and child murder. Google it.
Anyway, she's since changed her name and landed herself a cushy-classy job as a Walmart associate. News station WFAA-TV in Texas notified her employer that Dena Laettner was in fact the notorious Dena Schlosser. Walmart then fired her.
So this is one of those conundrums, right? She supposedly "paid her debt to society," but the crime she committed was just so grisly it seems like there is no amount of penance that would render her worthy of even living in society. It should be mentioned that she was released from psychiatric care in 2008, doing only four years (didn't even do prison time) and she was later hospitalized a second time, being released in 2010. So it's rather obvious that she does display the personality of someone who cannot stay out of the nuthouse long enough to contribute to society fully.
This woman's mental illness resulted in the brutal death of an innocent child and Walmart is a family establishment, meaning she's been exposed to other people's children on a regular basis during her employment. To be opinionated, she deserved to be fired. However, there is still that tiny feeling of it being a tad bit unfair.
