    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.

Parents Gone Wild! Shanynthia Gardner charged with stabbing to death 4 of her children

Dallen Clayton, 7 [survived]

This is beyond belief. I cannot imagine a mother stabbing their child to death, much less 4 of them. Maybe there is some mental illness involved. Someone should have stepped up before to help her. However, I do not know if she has a mental illness. I am grasping at straws here to understand this. Now 4 children are dead. What short lives they had.

  1. Heartbreaking. …

  2. I cannot find any negative information about the mother. Can’t imagine a motive strong enough. Must involve mental illness.
    Most cases of murder by child abuse have a history of abuse, family protective service visits, violent husband or step-parent, boyfriend, or extreme religiousity. At least the 7 y/o escaped and should be able to help authorities understand why. Unimaginably tragic.
