These stories make me mad/sad

I guess I will never understand people these days. If you want to take your life then go ahead but to also take your 5 innocent children's life too? It's something that makes me so f'kin upset and it's incomprehensible to me. Life is a gift and you only have one life to live...I just wish people like him could have tried to find a way to maybe find another job or apply for unemployment instead of resorting to something this drastic and tragic. It's something that blows my mind. No matter how hard life may be and will be I just wish people would take the time to think about other options besides murder and suicide. :(

This is sooo sad to me. That poor innocent little girl. :cry: She said "I LOVE you" to her mother before she killed her. This really angers me. :irk: This is why people like her mother and Caylee Anthony's mother should NEVER ever become mothers. This is such a senseless death and the fact that she tried to reach out to her mother before she threw her across the room makes me sick. :barf: I have two young cousins around her age and I love and spoil them to death. I could never imagine hurting or killing them. People are sick these days and stories like these make me sad for humanity. What kind of world do we live in now? This is why I don't want to bring children into this world. I can't even read the news anymore without getting sad and depressed.

Please everyone appreciate your life and the people in it. Don't take anything for granted and no matter how hard your life may be please try to get help before you resort to something drastic. :hug:

"I think we have all had times when we want to walk away or worse. I think its more common then we assume." It is way more common. Everyone gets the impulse to beat the living tar out of the smiling creature that just poured tomato juice on your freshly mopped tile floor, and then walks through it and across the carpet to tell you what he did. What separates us from animals is that we have the ability to reason, and not act on those impulses.

Laine, I absolutely knew you were not pointing fingers - no worries at all!! I'm Irish and German too by the way LOL!! :hug: I'm sorry you've struggled too - it's so hard.

No, we are not descended from monkeys. What is proposed that all primates have a common ancestor. Orangutans were the first to split with that common ancestor, and Chimpanzees are our closest "relative".

I think we have all had times when we want to walk away or worse. I think its more common then we assume. I have always wondered what prevents some of us from taking that step and for others to take it. *************** "Enjoy life, it's ungrateful not to." - Ronald Reagan

"...aren't we supposed to be more evolved then monkeys?" Sam, sometimes I wonder.... Besides, a lot of that very fundamental, animal "wiring" is very deeply-embedded. Kim, I didn't mean to point any fingers, that's why I specified a particular example. Thanks for realizing that I'm more inept than malicious. :oops: I struggle with two kids, I don't know how those of you with more than that manage. I guess I'm just a wimp. :true: I have had my times when I just wanted to walk away, or worse. I have finally (mostly) outgrown my bad temper. (German and Irish don's mix well, I think. Or maybe it's just me.) Sometimes I think it's just a matter of outlasting the difficult times. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Conservative in exile

Kim- I am glad your husband saw the signs. I am glad you are part of our lives in an internet kind of way (not finding the words). You are too good a person to loose. :hug: and you are never alone. *************** "Enjoy life, it's ungrateful not to." - Ronald Reagan

"Depression might be an excuse for neglect, but not prolonged, repeated abuse or murder." - I agree. Like I said earlier I don't think their mental issues are an excuse, I just have more sympathy for these people than most do I think. (I know that wasn't directed at me by the way) But it's even hard for me to fathom their actions. When I was going through my depression and all that, never once did I think about hurting my children. Removing myself from the situation to rid my family of the burden of me - now that was more like what my thought process was. But the feeling of complete and utter aloneness in the world and nobody understands - that I can relate to. The fear of reaching out for help - not thinking you deserve the help, not thinking anyone would be willing to help, not wanting the embarrassment of admitting some of your feelings and thoughts to someone else, all that I can relate to. That's why it pains me so deeply to see people suffer emotionally. I was extremely fortunate in that I have a husband who truly loves me and who saw the signs and who was supportive and loving and encouraging and helped me both in his own way and also in getting professional help for me. Not everyone is so lucky, which is why I think some are driven to do the things they do - again not an excuse - not at all. Laine, you bring up an interesting point with the fleeting relationships and I certainly wouldn't discount it as a possible theory. I think the human mind is fascinating (and scary quite frankly). I do wish more people could get the help they needed though. Because there are some seriously messed up people in the world and I mean that in the kindest way. ************************** "The Dictionary is the only place success comes before work" ~ Vince Lombardi

maybe for some but aren't we supposed to be more evolved then monkeys? i just finished an article about a father of 3 who threw his 8 year old daughter off a bridge but when arrested ask the cops to take care of his 2 sons. WTF? *************** "Enjoy life, it's ungrateful not to." - Ronald Reagan

Depression might be an excuse for neglect, but not prolonged, repeated abuse or murder. Theory: In the animal kingdom, in many cases (I heard it in relation to chimpanzees) when there is a new alpha male he will kill the offspring of the previous dominant male. It's nature's way of ensuring that the strongest genes take precedence. There are so many fleeting relationships, and so many mothers with new husbands or boyfriends, do you think this is a factor? The new male may hurt or kill the child(ren), or bully the mother into it, to maintain the relationship. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Conservative in exile

I say if you're so damn miserable jump off a building. Why hurt innocent children?!! I cannot watch things like this anymore. I wanted to go to Caylee's (RIP) mom's jail and beat the crap out of her! Children should NEVER have to suffer! See I'm already getting heated. I had a rough childhood growing up but I made it and didn't have it as bad as many other children but I always told myself that the day I become a mother I will smother my child/children with love, attention, and affection. We live in a sad and strange world I think because how does BS like this happen? How do you snap and hurt your little ones the ones that think of you as their hero?! Life is rough but we ALL have problems and issues whether they be work related or personal we all go through stuff so it's NOT fair to take it out on someone else or your child for that matter. You don't want your kid anymore or you don't think you can handle it then seek family,friends,neighbors,or adoption agencies. Scream for help and someone will hear you! Godbless :pray: miss b

Both of your signiture lines are great. Martini, I was thinking I would like to see these two horrible people suffer the same atrocities they did to that little child but we know that isn't going to happen. :sad:

Martini I love your signature line! It reminds me of another quote that I love which is "walk your own path and allow others to do the same." ********************************* "The Dictionary is the only place success comes before work" ~ Vince Lombardi

Schaianne, I am not understanding your comment about that these "are just going to increase in number"....could you elaborate on that? Lazybones, I know exactly what I think should happen to these two - exactly what they did to that sweet, defenseless baby! :rant: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.

I couldn't even read the 2nd article completely. I can't come up with a how or why. I don't even know what I think should happen to these two.

Schlanne, "increase in number'? On what basis was that prediction made?
Schaianne Schaianne 5 years 33 weeks
This is very upsetting and I've learned through a class last year that these murder/suicides are just going to increase in number. Scary, isn't it?

"Things just spun out of control" Oh give me a break. It's no accident when you harm/murder your 2 year old child, with your boyfriend. And what is up with the prosecutors. "Prosecutors declined to seek the death penalty because they didn't think they could prove that either one would be a future danger, as required." I bet they could prove it if they try hard enough. Both of these stories are sad. But the one about the little girl was just sickening.

It is impossible for me to even attempt to wrap my head around what would cause people to do such unspeakable things.

#1 story: each time something like this happens, I wonder how anyone can go through with such a terrible idea. There are many options in life and to feel that is the only way out indicates amazing psychological problems. #2 Agree Shop. What kind of society do we live in? Are we to the point that there are more and more people without a conscience? A mother killing her own baby is by far the most unthinkable crime ever.

To judge them is beyond me. To take your child's life because you are depressed or angry at someone is something I do not get. To murder children or to abuse them or use them to commit a crime in unthinkable to me. Maybe we need places these people can go to talk things out without being judged. *************** "Enjoy life, it's ungrateful not to." - Ronald Reagan
