    This is a sad, sad story. :( What do you want *stRgrL*? That she is going to be killed by the death penalty? Then you should have asked whether you could be one of the jury, to vote for her death.

    It is horrible what happened here. I can't even think of something more horrible then killing your own little kids. What made her do it? There is something to say for that you know. How difficult it seems, can't imagine she did it in cold blood.

    All together, the article made me feel cold all over. How mixed up can a person become and how do they get so mixed up?

    Todays society? Not a TV program, it's too silly for words! Guess there's a whole lot of misery to be found in her life.

    Poor little kids, poor mixed up mother... I have no words for this. Just feel sad and lonely by hearing this. What a world in which this 'things' happen...:(

    No, I agree with Banshee, this is one of thee saddest story's I have read, but when it comes to killing kids, I get really emotional. I know that there had to be something wrong with her, there had to be, but I believe she knew what she was doing. I really dont want to comment too much more on this one, I know Im at total odds with most people. I just feel so bad thinking what those children were thinking while it all was happening. So, so sad. Tragic:(

    This case had me all torn up. I believe killing is wrong but something is wrong when someone can kill children and then claim it wasn't my fault I was just insane. I could never sit on a jury that was deciding the death penalty as I could never pull the trigger myself so to speak. But in my defense I am honest about it and the jury would have some that could if they so decided.

    You knew her husband made that same comment. I know how, because she killed 5 kids in 1 sitting and then called the cops to say she did, and then tried to say, "I didnt know what I was doing." If it was a male that did this it would of been handled and looked at differently. I dont care whether your the mother of the kids you kill or a complete stranger, killing a defenseless person is - killing a defenseless person, it shouldnt matter your relationship to the victim(s). Well, in my opinion anyways...


    Groove on

    Life in prison? There is a waste of space and taxpayers money. All it takes is a bullet to the temple. She killed 5 of her kids, sane or not she should die IMHO.

    As I've said in other threads...
    I am a full supporter of the death penalty, but i feel the current administration of death is way too fast & easy for these assholes. Public execution's are the way to go.
    Hanging= What a great floor show. Tongue hanging out, bodily fluids squirting everywhere.
    Beheading= Only with, not so sharp, blades. Several wacks to do the job. Tons of fun for the whole family. Only the ones of leagal age, though.

    I know it may sound sick & barbaric, but, I feel it would be a great deterrent. Of course no method is fail-proof. Anyone can throw some mamby-pamby crap about cruelty & all that.
    If the murderer is killed, they will NOT kill again & society will NOT be supporting these murderer's. End of story. :cool:
