what causes people to kill their own children?

I love my boys so very much and could never purposely hurt them in any way- yesterday morning in the town next to mine, a man shot his 2 kids and his ex wife before being shot and killed himself by a police officer. His 7 yr old son died and his ex wife and 11 yr old son were hospitalized. Wtf is going through these peoples minds to get them to hurt innocent little children?

  • I do not pretend to understand what a dark place people who do this are coming from. I am convinced it is a severe mental illness, as no one in his or her right mind would ever just do such a thing.

    As for abortions...I do not pretend to understand what that woman is going through. My only opinion on that subject is that abortion was not meant to be used as birth control.

    I just thank God that I don't struggle with depression, or anger or whatever these people are struggling with. There but for the grace of God go I.

  • I asked myself that every time I watched Nancy Grace!! she's on HLN on 9pm..Anyways lastnight she was talking about a 30 year old woman who has 3 kids, just had another boy, he was 5 weeks old,she killed him by..well rather VERY disturbing details..and just threw him away like he was trash! all becuase she didn't want the state to find out that the baby's father was a 14 year old boy...I pray for these helpless innocent children..

  • You know i feel the same way you do WTF. There's a women and her BF that live in my state that a few years ago there baby (3 months old) had so many broken bones that she was in the ICU for 6 months and the parents put the blame on one another. I went to school with girl and I would have never thought for a minute that she would ever hurt her own child. It"s a sad world that we live in.

  • That's horrible! The only thing I can think of is mental illness. I don't think it's an excuse, I think they're still accountable for their actions, but it's the closest thing any of us will get to an answer. It is so tragic and sad, and it turns the insides of anyone with a soul when we hear this stories.
