    What is wrong with these mothers that think that killing there children is the solution to the problems that they have created.
    The children are not the problem the are the reason to get stronger and go on living.
    They think it is the end of the world because they have man problems.
    Women need to educate themselves, get a job and get a life, instead of looking for more men. They could make a better life for there children

    It seems like people are going nuts all over, that guy shot someone dead for throwing popcorn at him and the road rage killing and attempted killing among others, now this. Maybe it’s because the job situation stinks, maybe it’s because people are self-absorbed to a level hitherto unseen in the middle classes, who knows.

    I hope this lady gets the help she needs and that little kid gets the secure environment he needs. Things come and go but all will be well if we pull together and stop treating each other like the enemy.
