    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

  1. I think this is so awful. I also think her excuse is a very POOR one as well. I have a 13, 9 , 5 and 16 and half year old. Do you know how many time my 13,9 and 5 year old talked back to me? LOT’S. I just take things away they LOVE. 13 yr = Cell phone, 9 yr = DS and computer, 5 yr = TV or going outside and playing. When they act like they don’t care, I keep it for longer. They DO care then. Around here you can’t slap your child nor do I truly want too but that’s some of my families way because that’s how they were raised. BUT you just can’t do to dcf, dss (whatever it’s called where you live) BUT on the other hand you CAN’T let the child control you either. But no way shape or form am I going to shoot my child for talking back to me. She took her kids life but was to much of a coward to pull the trigger on herself. Just another poor excuse for a human once again. R.I.P. Children, God Bless you. My heart goes out to this family and the dad of these children.

  3. This took place in my home city and, for some reason, that made it all the more shocking. It’s hard to believe that a mother can kill her own children, but it’s happening more and more frequently. It is beyond my understanding.

  4. I must agree with you Cube. I watch Nancy Grace and I see it EVERY night. A new case of a child murdered by his/her mother/father or mother’s boyfriend etc. It’s so awful. I heard Nancy say “And the mother’s defend these men” I laughed because IF that happened to me, (Knock on wood) I WOULD NEVER DEFEND HIM. I’d be the mother who’d be jumping over the benches to punch the sh*t out of him. And I’d pray to god he’d get what’s coming to him in prison. God bless all these children being taken away for NO REASON AT ALL.
