What is wrong with people....vent

Really, what is wrong with people. I read that a South Carolina mom shot and killed her 7yo dd and 5yo ds while they were sleeping. She also shot her dh, who survived but has life threatening injuries. When the paramedics found her in a wrecked car, she said she shot her family and tried to kill herself but couldn't bring herself to do it. REALLY! She had no problem killing her two precious babies!

What could possibly make a mom kill her children?

Mental illness. Severe depression where one feels wholy unable to go on and that all of their lives would be better if no one is alive. There are so many reasons, reasons not excuses.

That is so sad. I honestly cannot imagine what would cause a mom to kill her children. 

Maybe like the previous poster said, mental illness, but wouldn't there be red flags before hand?

I agree with this.

Mental illness doesn't always have visual effects or even precursors.
