*Whew. My nerves are already on overdrive with this one. Where does mental illness end and downright evil begin? What is the dividing line when someone who admits to being “angry at life” think its OK to take someone else’s?
That is what some bitch named Conner MacCalister did. Call me what you will, but I think that’s pretty eff’d up.
When I get mad I don’t answer the phone for a few hours. I get mad and I stay in my room. I get mad and I might ‘take it out’ on someone by saying something inappropriate. But I will be damned if I go out in public with the intention of killing someone…just because I’m mad.
Are you kidding me? Who in the hell does that?
Some bitch named Connie MacCalister.
And the sentence of life in prison seems too good for her. But then again, so would a death sentence.
MacCalister, whose last name even looks like a mistake, was fuming when she left her house and headed to the store to kill “several random people.” Court records shows she acknowledged being “off (her) meds” when she killed 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau in August at a Shaw’s supermarket in Saco, Maine, where they both lived.
Her lawyer was all prepared to plead insanity, but MacCalister obviously knew something more, and plead guilty over his objections in October. She was sentenced in Alfred’s York County Superior Court, in the presence of the decedents distraught family members.
The victim, Wendy Boudreau, had a daughter who was at the courthouse. Jessie Boudreau said, “Those poignant moments, when I realize she is really gone, are paralyzing,” and added that MacCalister’s “actions cracked the very foundation of our family and the Saco community.”
Still trying to wrap my brain around a woman getting so mad she would take a knife and stab another woman, someone she never met, to death.
Robert LeBrasseur said his client, MacCalister, wanted to plead guilty to “make this easier on Mrs. Boudreau’s family and friends.” So the requirement for this was for him to argue in favor of a life sentence, which he did.
MacCalister, a Transgender man who claims to have now stopped taking testosterone and wants to be referred to as a woman, rose briefly during the sentencing to apologize to Boudreau’s family and friends.
“I hope you have good memories of her,” she said. “I’m sorry.”
So am I. That I loathe you right now.
According to Assistant Attorney General Leane Zainea, initially MacCalister planned to kill one person, take another hostage and then kill the hostage when police arrived. Zainea said MacCalister had been planning the attack for a month.
Though there was no indication that Boudreau and MacCalister knew each other, the affidavit said MacCalister had claimed Boudreau “looked at me funny” at the scene.
I know you have opinions so, let’s hear them.
