After giving birth to a premature baby on an East Oakland street, police say the mother ripped the umbilical cord and walked away Friday afternoon, leaving the newborn boy dead or dying in a puddle of blood.
The 4:39 p.m. incident in the 1400 block of 65th Avenue left witnesses and veteran investigators stunned.

I suspect she may be a drug addict or perhaps mentally retarded or mentally ill. Dropping your trousers to give birth in public isn't normal behavior. Sexual abuse of mentally ill women or mentally retarded women is very common -- so that may be a component in this.
