Maybe the government will wake up and realize that we need to sort of bring back "insane asylums" you know places where people who are potentially very dangerous can be kept safe from themselves and other people.

This whole thing of we can keep crazy people in the community and just feed them happy pills and everything will be OK isn't working out too well.

70 years ago, this lady would have been put somewhere for safe keeping I'm sure.

How about just saying that she was an evil P.O.S.?

If this woman's skin color were darker, it's obvious that these same people would be calling the woman a "thug", etc.

I am surprised that this woman was killed, especially considering she was an attractive blonde "barbie".



You really think this woman would have spent the rest of her life in jail - if she had been subdued without being killed? You obviously have a lot more confidence in the criminal justice system than I do. I believe that she would have maybe gotten some time in a minimum security facility - and/or possibly a mental institution. She obviously had money - so, I'm sure she could have hired some expensive lawyer & wouldn't have done any real hard time.

If you're rich, you can get away with anything - even murder.
Or, if youre an illegal, or jailed for having/selling drugs, hard drugs. There are still people in jail who weren't released and they only had pot.

Why do people keep saying this? Why wouldn't it be?

She sho nuff has a crazy look in her eyes in her pics. Wow. You never know what's really in someone's mind, I guess.
All her pictures are highly edited. I have a photo app that makes my eyes look like that. I don't use it, I think it looks creepy. I always see pictures on Facebook where babies and toddlers have their eyes photoshopped like that. I think they look strange, like some sort of doll that has come to life. For some reason though, others are always commenting on her beautiful the child's eyes are.

BPD, as a personality disorder, much like anti-social personality disorder ( formerly known as sociopathy--> psychopathy ) just doesn't raise as much sympathy in me as folks that have organic brain disorders such as schizophrenia or bipolar. These personality disorder types DO understand illegal vs. legal and are not legally insane.

Well, considering a woman's PMS is enough an excuse for killing why not?

The fact that a woman's PMS has been successfully used as an excuse to kill.

This is a thread about a white woman murdering her two white daughters. Why are you dragging black people into it? <confused>
