OK - we can demonize her, maybe deservably so. However, where were her support systems when she needed them? Her mother knew she was depressed, her husband was away in Qatar (Army Intelligence). Didn't anyone see the trouble her kids were causing her? I just think after reading the story that someone could have stepped in....
We are parents of teens....we all know how difficult they can be. Where were her friends???

I'm sorry, I don't feel any type of patience for this woman. I know what it's like to be in a deep depression. I know what it's like when you feel that there is no way out. I also know what it's like when kids talk back. I know the frustrations, just like any parent, but I would never kill them for being mouthy. And as far as "snapping", this woman was driving her son to soccer practice and then came home and shot her daughter. How many people actually carry their gun with them in the car? Think about any time when you have become so angry that you lost it, did you stay angry like that for hours, minutes? I think the woman had time to cool off. I think this premeditated.
